Dua accepted in hajj umrah

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Are the duas offered during Umra are as much accepted by Allah Almighty as in hajj?


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Dua accepted in umra hajj

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, every dua or supplication made by the believers to their Lord, wherein one implores the Lord for what is good and righteous is accepted by the Merciful Lord; regardless of the time or the place of the supplication.


The All Knowing, All Wise Allah knows what is good and what is bad for us; therefore, if one asks for something good, Allah will give him/her one of three things:

Allah will give the believer what he/she has supplicated for.

If what the believer is asking is not good or harmful for the believer in this world, Allah will store it for him for the world of the Hereafter.

If what the believer is asking is not good or harmful for the believer in this world, Allah will turn away from the believer an equivalent amount of evil.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2257 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri

The Prophet (saws) said, "Any Muslim who makes a supplication containing nothing which is sinful, or which involves breaking ties of relationship, will be given for it by Allah one of three things: He will give him swift answer, or store it up for him in the next world, or turn away from him an equivalent amount of evil." Those who heard it said they would then make many supplications and he replied that Allah was more ready to answer than they were to ask.


Abdallah b. 'Umar reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Hearts are like vessels, some more attentive and capacious than others. When you supplicate Allah you should be certain of being answered, and know that Allah does not answer a supplication that comes from a careless and inattentive heart."

Narrated by Ahmad


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2248 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "There are three whose supplication is not rejected: one who has just ended a fast, a just imam, and one who has been wronged, whose supplication is raised by Allah above the clouds and for which the gates of Heaven are opened. The Lord says, 'I swear by My might that I shall certainly help you, though it be after some time.'"


Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Your supplication will be answered if you are not impatient, and if you do not say, 'I supplicated but my supplication was not heard'."

Narrated by Malik.


Your Question: Are the duas offered during Umra are as much accepted by Allah Almighty as in hajj?

Although every dua and supplication made by the believers to their Merciful and Bounteous Lord is accepted, there are some times and places where one’s dua is more accepted; near Allah’s Sacred House, on the plains of Arafah during the Hajj, on the Night of Qadr in Ramadan, in the blessed month of Ramadan, on the Days of Eid, on Friday, after prayers, etc.


The pilgrimage to the Sacred House of Allah Subhanah is indeed a good deed; and both the Hajj and the Umrah pilgrimages are indeed good righteous deeds which would earn the believers the Pleasure and Good Will of Allah Subhanah. The greater the good deed, the better probability of the dua being accepted by the Bounteous and Generous Lord; and although both the pilgrimages are good deeds, there is absolutely no doubt that the Hajj is a much bigger deed than the Umrah pilgrimage.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186: And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!


Although some times and places are best for the making and acceptance of supplications, the believers must know that the doors of Mercy and acceptance of Allah Subhanah are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; and the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) encourages the believers to be constant in their supplication to their Bounteous and Generous Lord, wherever or whenever one wills; for the supplication of a believer is indeed a manifestation of his worship of his Lord.


Nu'man b. Bashir reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "Verily supplication is worship."

Narrated by Ahmad and Sunan.


Abu Hurairah reported, "The Prophet (saws) said, "Nothing is more dear to Allah than one's supplication to Him.''

Narrated by Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.


Salman reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "Your Lord, the Blessed and the Exalted One, is Modest and Generous, and He loathes to turn away His servant empty-handed when he raises his hands to Him in supplication."

Narrated by Ahmad and Ibn Hibban.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
