Overstepping the mark in making du`a’?Some brothers are very detailed in their du`a, for example they say, “O Lord, give me a colour TV and a furnished apartment…” and so on. I am afraid that this is a kind of overstepping the mark in making du`a. If the person is the Haram in Makkah, especially during Ramadaan, is it not better for him to ask for what is good in this world and the next by reciting the du`as that are known from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)? I came to your site looking for information on overstepping the mark in making du`a but I could not find a detailed answer. I hope that you can explain this matter. Thank you.

Does Allaah delay the response to du’aa’ for the one whom He loves?I know there is a hadith qudsi that says in it that Allah (swt) told Gabrael (PBUH) that when a slave of His makes dua, and He likes this slave, he doesn't give him his request so that He can hear his repetition of the dua over and over. But if He doesnt like this slave, He tells Gabrael to give him what he wants so He dont hear his voice. My question is.. is that in every case? or are there exceptions? This is the situation, i was a sinner and i repented and ive gone a long way. al-hamdolillah. i dont do da'wah because im busy with studying and helping my mother with my brothers and sisters, but i do send emails very often with important facts about Islam, reminders, teachings about 'Aqeedah and Fiqh, and stories that can serve as a reminder and lesson to all of us. I (al-hamdolilah) am always saying athkaar, all day long and especially "laa ilaha illa allah wahddaho la shareeka lah, lahom al-mol wa laho al-hamd wa howa 'ala kulli shay'ean qadeer" I say that all day,, and i also always make dua for me and for others. And recently ive noticed that most of the dua's i make happen soon after i pray them. al-hamdolillah, i say, but still i'm afraid that this is a sign that im not one of those that Allah likes. (I ask allah that this is not the case) And that Allah gives me what i prayed for so He (swt) doesnt hear my voice. Maybe it is because of my past? I dont know but wallahi this subject is really worrying me... I try so much to do everything that is right and to make up for my past...
