Dua Do List Part Part 2 - True Story

By Mabrouka Al-Tajoury



Pray Together, Stay Together

I want to share a true story that had happened to me a couple of years back when doing the Groupy-Dua-Do-List with my sweetest best friend, Asma. And may Allah preserve her and bless every noble friendship, ameen.

She was engaged and living with her family in a rather small apartment which they rented from landowners that were making it nearly impossible for them to live in. And she personally was going through some issues and was literally fed up.

As a best friend you're sometimes limited in reaching out and giving a hand. So we decided to do dua together because we trusted in the Healer and Fixer of everything, merciful Allah. As He is able to do all things.

We prearranged beforehand to wake up during the night both at the same time to perform a volunteer salah of two raka's and give each other a missed call to let the other know that she's going to say ''Allah'hu Akbar'' and pray directly after that missed call. When finished praying, we arranged to sit on the prayer mat and make dua for around ''5 minutes only'' for Allah to grant her a better home for her and her family to live in. We continued doing this for days and days. And alhamdulilah, with thanks to Allah, they eventually did move somewhere better. But wait there's more.

Time past and her wedding was near. She was busy preparing and I was buried in studies and had exams. Due to long distance and many reasons, she had never been to my home before; for this reason, she called me up to take directions, so that she would send me her wedding invitation. I'm not so good in giving directions, but as I was trying to tell her my address she kind of became shocked.

I lived in an apartment and so she asked me what floor; I replied with strangeness, the fourth floor. In astonishment she told me, Mabrouka, I live across the street from you! I was like '' :/ '' I couldn't explain how shocked and speechless I was. I watched in awe from the window as she walked down the street with her sister to me *_*. Seriously, what can I say, just subhan'Allah. But wait there's more.

After mash'Allah she got married, she lived in a mash'Allah beautiful apartment which was not so far from where I live. Like just around five minute drive! Alhamdulilah.

Eternally generous Allah works in beautiful ways. Because of our ''sincere'' unity in reaching out to Him, merciful Allah brought us closer together – LITERALLY:) Praise is to Allah, Lord of the worlds – alhamdulilah.

Moral of the Story:

Dear reader,

I'm not sharing this to brag or be boastful – no. There's a deeper reason why I'm sharing this. The reason why I'm writing this is to show me and you that the best friendship is the one with Allah in it. And that when we or people complain, we don't want to hear another ''It's going to be okay''. We need productive action in telling us what to do; a friend that leads and supports us through Allah in the right direction - the direction that pleases Allah and not people.

I ask you, do you know what the best definition of friends is?
· It is the one who brings you closer to Allah (SWT).

Do you have those types of friends in your life? Wait, more importantly, are you that type of friend? Please, dear Muslimahs, sincerely from the depths of your heart ask yourself: ''Do I bring my friends closer to Allah or further away from merciful Allah?''

Friends are like perfume; 

They rub off on you. 
So surround yourself with people of right 
And you will be Allah's spreading light. 

I'd love to hear your views on this topic. Please post in the comments section below! :)

Pure light shines out from your words, masha'Allah. You have a beautiful heart, masha'Allah.

Allah huma ameen and ameen to your genuine dua ~ it means a lot, walahe. I shared my story to HOPEFULLY inspire others that when one places their trust in Allah through 'heart' and 'action', beautiful things happen. Kind Allah is ever merciful.

You'll find plenty of good sisters out there, insha'Allah. Try going to a masjid near you and interact with sisters. You'll find good people in good places.
