Dear Young Muslims,
Let’s talk about what is supplication?
Supplication is when you ask Allah to do good things for people you love or
for others and for yourself.
Five Fingers of supplication
Your thumb is nearest to you. So begin your supplication by praying for those
closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. So pray for those you love,
like your parents and brothers and relatives.
The next finger is the pointing finger. Make supplication for those who teach,
instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and anyone that teaches you
something. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right
direction. Keep them in your prayers.
The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray that
we have a good Muslim leaders insha’Allah. These people will be directing
Muslims all over the place… and they need Allah's guidance.
The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this
is our weakest finger. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in
trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night.
And lastly comes our little finger; the smallest finger of all. Which is where
we should place ourselves in relation to Allah and others. By the time you have
prayed for the other four groups, then you can pray for yourself.
Try to do these supplication every day when you wake up and when you are going
to bed. This way Allah will know you are always asking Him and making
supplication for Him which is very good. This is it for today my dear
Muslims….remember to make supplication.
