Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)



What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Can I make du’ā to increase my height?

Questioner: A sister from UK


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

A short individual making du’ā for an increase in height, or a tall individual making du’ā for a decrease in height are both forbidden; just as the father of Ala Hazrat, Mawlānā Naqī ‘Alī Khān (may Allāh have mercy upon him) writes in his book, Ahsan al-Wi’ā li Ādāb al-Du’ā:

One should not exceed the bounds when making du’ā, for example: to ask for the rank of the Prophets (upon them be salutations and peace), expressing a desire to scale the skies, and likewise, all those things which are impossible or close to impossible should not be asked for;

اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الۡمُعۡتَدِيۡنَ

“Indeed, Allah dislikes those who exceed the bounds’’

[Surah al-Baqarah, Verse 190]

And he further states:

Included in this is that one supplicates for a change in those matters which have already been sealed by fate, for example, a tall individual supplicates: may my height decrease, or a small-eyed individual says: may my eyes become larger.

[Ahsan al-Wi’ā li Ādāb al-Du’ā, pages 172 & 175]
