From Blindness to Sight

Have you ever thought about the dua of Ya’qoub [Jacob] when he lost his son Yusuf [Joesph]? He spent many years turning to Allah in pain, sorrow and anguish over his lost son. His extreme sorrow eventually made him blind. Allah finally returned his beloved son to him and cured his blindness.

At no point did Ya’qoub stop making dua [prayer] or lose hope in Allah’s ability to return his son to him. In fact, he instructed his sons: 

despair not of relief from Allah. Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people” [12:87]. 

To this day, his beautiful duas are preserved in the Qur’an.

The power of dua is amazing, intense, and deep. Our predecessors in faith knew this and sought refuge in its power, but how well are we able to take advantage of this?
