      Agreed, even not only Muslims. Prayer on what area of concentration, because prayer is common name that we all used to say to the Holy God for our needs.

    2. Absolutely True! So pray for the Ummah, your children, your parents, your siblings, your spouse, your in-laws, your relatives, the stranger you meet on the street who does something nice to you… there is no limit to who you can make Dua for, and the more Dua you make, the more it pleases Allah.

      Also worth noting, any Dua you make to benefit others, angels make the same Dua for you – and the Dua of the angels are more likely to get accepted.

      May Allah give you, the admins of this site, the visitors of this site, the whole Ummah, the best in this world and Aakhirah 🙂
