A lot of times, we get hesitate to make du'a because we're not sure exactly what to say.
We ask around for a du'a in Arabic that we can memorize and recite, thinking that the Arabic wording is the key to the du'as acceptance.
The thing is, it's not about the Arabic.
Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala understands every language and understands you even when you don't say a thing.
It's all about turning your heart to Him with sincerity and conviction.
It reminds me of a story of a rich man, a poor man and a bedouin...
A rich man was going to Hajj. He had prepared for the journey and was ready to go when a poor man asked him if he could go with him and serve him.
The rich man agreed and they started traveling. On the way, the two stopped at a Bedouin’s tent.
The Bedouin was a generous host, serving his guests and making the comfortable. The two travelers stayed overnight at the Bedouin’s tent.
In the morning, the rich man awoke to find that the poor man had passed away in the evening. He asked the Bedouin to help him wash and bury the poor man.
Before they buried the poor man, the rich man asked the Bedouin to lead him in the funeral prayer. The Bedouin declined, saying that he didn’t know how to make du’a for the poor man.
So the rich man led the prayer. They buried the poor man and then the rich man continued on his way.
After he had left the Bedouin’s tent, the rich man had a dream in which he was told that Allah had forgiven the poor man’s sins because of the du’a of the Bedouin.
The rich man was so curious that he went back to the Bedouin’s tent to ask him what his du’a was.
The Bedouin insisted that he didn’t say anything special. The rich man described his dream to the Bedouin and asked him again to tell him the du’a.
The Bedouin told him he just said, “Oh Allah, this man was my guest and I was generous to him. Now he is Your guest, so please be generous to him.”
It wasn’t an extravagant du’a but it was the sincerity of the du’a that made it accepted.
With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level....

Whatever happens is by the Will of Allah, whether it be good or bad. Sometimes we forget Allah when it comes to happy moments, but immediately turn to Him for the bad. We should always be thanking Allah (SWT) for His infinite blessings, even in the tough times. He still gives and gives and we don’t even ask. The mercy of our Lord is beyond.. Subhna’Allah. “Its better a calamity that turns you to Allah, than a blessing that makes you forget Allah”
Always say Alhamdulillah for everything….
