The life of a believer can be summarised in one word; “Du’aa”, being an indispensable component in their lives, both of them. The challenges of life are countless, and the ones that await post-death are greater. There can be no safety from such challenges in the absence of Du’aa.
Everything in life is subject to wear and tear, requiring a share of servicing and repair. Our iman is of no exception, being exposed to tens of encounters each day that damage our hearts and consequential prospects of success in the Hereafter. We haven’t been left empty handed, however, for iman can in fact be repaired, and even taken to an entirely greater point than it was at before the sin. This can be achieved through Tawba.
