Supplication is an weapon of the believer!

Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

قال الإمام ابن القيم رحمه الله تعالى : ( والأدعية والتعوذات بمنزلة السلاح ، والسلاح بضاربه ، لا بحده فقط ، فمتى كان السلاح سلاحا تاما لا آفة به ، والساعد ساعد قوي ، والمانع مفقود ، حصلت به النكاية في العدو . ومتى تخلف واحد من هذه الثلاثة تخلف التأثير ) الداء والدواء ص35 .

“Du’aa’s and ta’awwudhaat [prayers seeking refuge with Allaah] are like a weapon, and a weapon is only as good as the person who is using it; it is not merely the matter of how sharp it is. If the weapon is perfect and free of faults, and the arm of the person using it is strong, and there is nothing stopping him, then he can lay waste the enemy. But if any of these three features is lacking, then the effect will be lacking accordingly.” (al-Daa’ wa’l-Dawaa’, p. 35).
