Why our supplications are not answered


Why our supplications

                   are not answered?


You know Allah,

       yet you do not obey him


You recite the Qur’an,

       yet you do not act according to it


You know shaytaan,

       yet you have agreed with him


You proclaim that you love the Messenger of Allah,

       yet you abandon his Sunnah


You proclaim your love for Paradise,

       yet you do not act to gain it


You proclaim your fear for the fire,

       yet you do not prevent yourselves from sins


You say ’Indeed death is true’,

       yet you have not prepared for it


You busy yourselves with finding faults with others,

       yet you do not look at your own faults


You eat that which Allah has provided for you,

       yet you do not thank him


You bury your dead,

        yet you do not take a lesson from it.

    Of Ibn Rajab al-Hanbalee)
