Mengadap kiblat bila berdoa

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuh اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد

Tip 9 -adab dalam berdoa - semoga Allah swt makbulkan doa.

Berdoalah dengan mengadap kiblat.

Tip #9 - Facing the qiblah (the direction of the kaaba in Mecca).

The kaaba, being a blessed place, is a good direction to face when making dua, this helps you focus when asking from Allah, and through it Allah has caused the Muslims to unite on one direction.

By facing the qiblah, a Muslim turns himself in the direction of the very first place of worship ever built on earth - the kaaba.

The proof to face the qiblah when making dua can be found in the following narration where Abdullah ibn Zayd said, 'the Prophet (peace be upon him) left (Madinah) to this prayer place, seeking rain. So he made a dua, and asked for rain, then he faced the qiblah and turned his cloak inside-out.' [Reference: Al-Bukhari: 6343, Muslim: 894]

It has also been narrated that when the quraysh tormented the Prophet (peace be upon him), he '...faced the kaaba and made a dua against them.' [Reference: Al-Bukhari: 3960]

This is another amazing etiquette of dua that unites Muslims on one direction, towards the kaaba while increasing the chances of getting the duas answered
