Q 12: Does
invoking Allah frequently, and appealing to Him with
certainty raise the probability of invocations being answered?
It is prescribed for Muslims to invoke Allah (Exalted be He) as often as possible, beseeching and appealing to Him. "Du`a' (invocation) is worship", as it was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him), according to the Hadith narrated by
Al-Nu`man ibn Bashir (may Allah be pleased with them both). Allah (Exalted be He) states,
And your Lord said: “Invoke Me, I will respond to your (invocation).
Allah (Exalted be He) also states,
Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He likes not the aggressors.
There are many other Ayat (Qur'anic verses) and Hadith (Prophetic statements) to the same effect. Accordingly, it is the duty of one who invokes Allah to have trust in Him, (Part No. 24; Page No. 198) seeking His response.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
