TweetAbu IsÂ’haaq Ebrahim Ibne AdÂ’ham was once passing through a bazaar in Basrah. It ws said unto him: Â“O Abu IsÂ’haaq, verily Allah has declared Â‘Ask Me, I will grant you your request.Â’ Why is it that we make duÂ’aa and He does not accept?Â” Abu Ishaaq replied: Â“Surely it is because your hearts have become dead, due to ten things:
1 You have known who Allah is, yet you have not fulfilled His duties; 2 You have recited the QurÂ’aan, yet you have not practiced upon it; 3 You have proclaimed the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, yet you have not practiced upon his sunnah; 4 You have pronounced that the shaytaan is your enemy, yet you have stood with him; 5 You have pronounced your desire for jannah, yet you have done nothing to achieve it; 6 You have pronounced your fear for jahannam, yet you have done nothing to escape it; 7 You have proclaimed that there surely is no escape from death, yet you do not prepare for it; 8 You have indulged in seeking the faults of others, and have left looking into your own faults; 9 You have enjoyed all the Blessings and Bounties of Allah, yet you do not give Him due praise for it; 10 You have buried your dead, but you have taken no admonition.
