|Subject: There is no Harm in Supplicating without Purification Wed Jul 07, 2010 8:35 pm|| |
Question: Sometimes when I wake up at two o’clock at night, I supplicate of Allah Almighty silently, but I do so without making ablution, neither do I pray voluntary prayers at that time. Is this permissible, or is it compulsory for me to perform ablution and prayer as well?Answer:
There is no harm in supplicating without having ablution, as well as when one is in a sate of sexual impurity. Purity is not a condition for invoking Allah Almighty. This is from Allah’s mercy because every person is in need of making supplication at all times.
Nevertheless, you are more likely to have your supplications answered if you are in a state of purity and if you pray especially when you are prostrating.
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said:“The servant is closest to his Lord when he is prostrating, so supplicate more frequently therein.” (Muslim 482)
