Supplication for supplication to be answered

“O Allah, I seek refuge in You from knowledge which does not benefit, from a heart that does not entertain the fear (of Allah), from a soul that is not satisfied and the supplication that is not answered.”

[Muslim: 2722]

We can observe a LINK between the clauses as pictured below:


Subdued Heart:

“There lies within the body a piece of flesh. If it is sound, the whole body is sound; and if it is corrupted, the whole body is corrupted. Verily this piece is the heart.”
[Bukhari, Muslim]

Satisfied Soul:

“(It will be said to some) O, you serene soul!
“Come back to your Lord well-pleased (with Him) and well-pleasing (Him),
So enter among My servants,
And enter into My Garden.”
[ Sura Fajr: 27-30 ]



Therefore we can prove the established links as below:

(1) Sound knowledge leads to subdued heart after appropriate actions (by the person) aided by the forgiveness and mercy of Allah 
(2) And subdued heart leads to a satisfied soul (to Allah’s will and judgements)


In short:
knowledge –> Heart (purified and obedient to Allah) –> Soul (satisfied) [SUCCESS]

And Finally We ASK THE Supplication to achieve the complete STEPS (in order to attain the ultimate Success) to be answered / accepted.
