VIDEO: The Life Of Shaykh al Islam Zakariyya al Ansari – Adab of Du’a 01

Allah Most High says,

“I am near – I answer the call of the one who calls upon me (2:186).”

Yet, many of us wonder: 
Are my du’as being answered? 
Is there a certain du’a I have to read for each of my concerns? 
Do my du’as have to be in Arabic?
