- I told to Imam Baqir (A.S): “What is the meaning of “truly, Ibrahim was awwah and patient”? He replied: “Awwah means (the one who is) praying (to) and wailing (for God) a lot.””
- “Two people, who have acted alike, enter the heaven, but one of them sees the other one in a higher place. Then, he says: O’ Lord! How come has he a superior place in comparison to me while we acted alike? God the Almighty replies: “because he asked Me (whatever he needed) and you did not do that”.
- “The most knowledgeable person to God is the one who asks more from Him”
- “Whoever prays a lot, the angels say: this voice is familiar (to us) and this is the prayer which is accepted and this is the need which is provided”
- “There is no servant who goes to a land and opens their hands and praises God and prays, unless God fills the land with his rewards, whether it is vast or tiny”
- If you knew god the way you should’ve known, Mountains definitely will be moved by your prayers.
- Crying out of fear of god is the key to his mercy, it’s a sign for his acceptance and it’s a door to answering (your prayers)
- Pray to god and believe in his answeres. But understand that god wont accept prays from an unwitting oblivious heart.

About this book
In Islam, praying is an act done to praise God. It allows people to achieve goodness from it by pleasing God. It is strictly stated in the Quran that a Muslim must pray five times a day regularly if he is able to--not as an act to benefit God, but to benefit oneself. So in fact when we pray to God It’s not exactly in the benefit of god but in benefit of ourselves.
Every pray in Islam has different parts and we must say some special words in each of them. One of them is called “Qunut”. It is a part of praying when you can ask god whatever you want in whichever language you choose.
This book is A full-length text containing dozens of supplications from the Holy Qur'an that can be read during the Qunut in Salat, instructions on how to perform some special prayers, and information about more than a hundred names of Allah and their significance in supplication.
