VERSE OF THE QURAN CONCERNING DUA

If due to the misfortune of sins, you do not possess a tongue of acceptance. Go to the friends of Allah and request their Duâs. Request those brothers of purity to pray on your behalf. 

REVELATION TO MOOSA

Once revelation came to the Prophet Moosa , O Moosa , call upon me with such a tongue which has not committed any sin. The Prophet Moosa  replied, Our lord, none of us posses such a tongue. The reply came, Call upon us with the tongue of others. (In other words, request others to make supplication for they because you did not sin through their mouths.)When did you ever commit sins through other peoples tongues? So with the tongue of others call me, O Allah

ALLAH'S LESSON TO MOOSA

Here Allah is giving a lesson to the Prophet Moosa  people through him. The Ummah (followers) are the sinful ones whilst the prophets are sinless. So outwardly the command came to the Prophet Moosa? but in actual fact, the address is directed at his Ummah. 

Or cleanse your mouth and make your lazy negligent soul alert and wide awake. 

This address is also directed at the Prophet Moosa  people. The name of Allah is pure. When you will take His name your mouth too will become clean. The impurity will pick up its bedding and depart. Every opposite will run away from its opposite as night flees when dawn breaks forth with its light. And so the purity of Allahs names dispels your impurity. When the name of Allah comes onto the tongue the impurity and darkness of sin cannot remain there.

REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH

In this incident there is a great lesson for the seekers of Allah. No matter what they may be no matter how much involved in sin, they should not delay in making Zikrullah (Remembrance of Allah) due to their impurities. Do not delay in making Zikrullah, awaiting first the fruits of rectification of the self. In fact rectification will through the blessing of Zikrullah becomes easy. It is through the Nur (Divine Light) of Zikr that one becomes aware of the darkness of sins, due to the fact that things are easily recognised through their opposites.

THE CONDITION OF A ZAAKIR

Hence, it is proven by experience that when a Zaakir commits a sin he is strongly perceived, causing one to quickly make repentance and cleanse the heart. It is just like a person who is used to wearing cleans clothes. Such a person will not tolerate a dirty spot on it he will not rest until the dirty spot is washed away. One used to being dressed in dirty clothes will not even see a new dirty spot on his clothes, because his clothes are full of dirty spots. And even if he becomes aware of a dirty spot then there will be no reaction in the heart to cleanse that spot and remove it.
