Why Our Prayers Are Not Answered?

IBRAHIM IBN ADHAM – may Allah have mercy on him – a third century scholar, a teacher and a companion of Sufyaan ath-Thawree, was asked about the saying of Allah – the Most High:

“AND YOUR LORD SAYS: CALL ON ME I WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER…”      [Soorah Ghaafir (40): 60]

“We supplicate and we are not answered.” So he said to them:

  • “You know Allah, yet you do not obey Him,
  • You recite the Quran, yet do not act according to it,
  • You know Shaitaan(Devil), yet you have agreed with him,
  • You proclaim that you love the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, yet you abandon his Sunnah,
  • You proclaim your love for Paradise, yet you do not act to gain it,
  • You proclaim your fear for the Fire, yet you do not prevent yourselves from sins,
  • You say “Indeed death is true”, yet you have not prepared for it,
  • You engage yourselves with finding faults with others, yet you do not look at your faults,
  • You eat of that which Allah has provided for you, yet you do not thank Him,
  • You bury your dead, yet you do not take a lesson from it.
