In a barren land, there stood an elderly man with his trusted companion of a son. As they worked tirelessly with their hands, they layed each stone carefully, one on top of the other. This was prophet Ibraheem, and his son Ismaeel, and as they obeyed Allah’s commandment of building the kabah, they spoke these words:
“Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Verily! You are the All-Hearer, the All-knower. Our Lord! Make us submissive unto you and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manaasik, and accept us our repentance. Truly, you are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Quran) and Al Hikmah and sanctify them. Verily! You are the All Mighty, the All Wise.”
Many, many years later came the answer to his dua: the birth of Muhammad, son of Abdullah, صلى الله عليه وسلم.
Even in the blessed birth of our prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, were lessons.
This action of Prophet Ibraheem teaches us that while performing good deeds, we can also be making dua to Allah, not only for Him to accept it but also for anything we’d like, whether its faar into the future or as near as the present.
