Why our du’a ar no answered

On being asked, "What is the reason that our prayers are not accepted?", Ibrahim bin Adham (a walyullah) answered because:

1 – You recognise the Lord, yet you do not follow and obey his commandments

2 – You study the scriptures yet you do not try to do what you are asked to do.

3 – You enjoy the gifts of your Lord, but you do not offer gratitude to him.

4 – You do not act so to avoid hell and enter heaven.

5 – You know the devil is your enemy, yet you do not deal with him as such.

6 – You know death must overtake you, yet you make no preperations for it.

7 – You consign your dead parents to the grave and yet you do not take lessons from the incident. (and feel as if you are immortal)

8 – You know you have many faults, yet you try to find faults with others

The people of knowledge are the heirs of the Prophets and and they inherit knowledge. The one who takes knowledge is taking an ample share. And if someone travels a path in quest of knowledge, Allah will make his path to the Garden
