Assalam-u-Alaikum Sisters

I belong to a group on Facebook-and I thought this would be appropriate to share.  Inshallah, the  information is accurate and correct.  Please forgive me if I make any mistakes. 

BEST TIMES TO MAKE DUAS

Best Times To Make Dua
There are certain times dua (supplication) is more likely to be accepted by Allah (SWT) as mentioned by Prophet (SAWW). These times are as follows:
--------------------------
----------------
1) THE LAST THIRD OF THE NIGHT:
--------------------------
----------------
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAWW) said: 'In the last third of every night our Rabb (Cherisher and Sustainer) (Allah (SWT)) descends to the lowermost heaven and says; "Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him? Who is asking Me so that may I grant him? Who is seeking forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?."
[Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith Qudsi]
Amr ibn Absah (R.A) narrated that the Prophet(S.A.W.W) said: 'The closest any worshipper can be to His Lord is during the last part of the night, so if you can be amongst those who remember Allah at that time, then do so.'
[at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa'i, al-Hakim - Sahih]
--------------------------
------------
2) BETWEEN AZAAN & IQAMAH:
--------------------------
------------
Anas (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAWW) said: 'A supplication made between the Adhan and Iqama is not rejected.'
[Ahmad, abu Dawud #521, at-Tirmidhi #212, Sahih al-Jami #3408, an-Nasai and Ibn Hibban graded it sahih (sound)]
--------------------------
----
3) AN HOUR ON FRIDAY:
--------------------------
----
Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): Allah’s Messenger (SAWW) talked about Friday and said: 'There is an hour on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while offering Salat (prayer) and asks something from Allah (SWT), then Allah (SWT) will definitely meet his demand.' And He (the Prophet (SAWW) pointed out the shortness of that particular time with his hands.
[Sahih al-Bukhari]
Some have said that this hour is from the time the Imam (prayer’s leader) enters the mosque on Friday’s prayer until the prayer is over (ie between the two khutbahs), whereas others have said that it is the last hour of the day (ie after the Asr prayer until the Maghrib prayer).
--------------------------
--------------------
4) WHILE DRINKING ZAMZAM WATER:
--------------------------
--------------------
Jaber (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAWW) said: 'Zamzam water is for what it is drunk for.'
[Ahmad 3: 357 and Ibn Majah #3062]
This means that when you drink Zamzam water you may ask Allah (SWT) for anything you like to gain or benefit from this water such as healing from illness...
--------------------------
-----
5) WHILE PROSTRATING:
--------------------------
-----
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAWW), said: 'The nearest a slave can be to his Lord is when he is prostrating, so invoke (supplicate) Allah (SWT) much in it.
[Muslim, abu Dawud, an-Nasa'i and others, Sahih al-Jami #1175]

When a Muslim is in his Salat (prayer) he is facing Allah (SWT) and when he prostrates he is the nearest he can be to Allah (SWT) so it is best to invoke Allah (SWT) at this time. It is said that while in prostration, one should not ask for worldy needs (ie a nice car, a new job, etc), but for the Hereafter.
--------------------------
----------------------------
6) AT THE END OF THE OBLIGATORY SALAT:
--------------------------
----------------------------
Narrated Abu Omamah (RA): that Allah’s Messenger (SAWW) was asked: O Messenger of Allah, which supplication is heard (by Allah (SWT), He (S.A.W.W) said: 'the end of the night and at the end of the obligatory Salat (prayer).'
[at-Tirmidhi]
--------------------------
----------------
7) THE NIGHT OF 'QADR' (Decree):
--------------------------
----------------
This night is the greatest night of the year. This is the night which the almighty Allah (SWT) said about it: "The night of Al-Qadar (Decree) is better than a thousand months." [Surah al-Qadr, 97: 3]
The Night of Decree is one of the odd nights of the last ten nights of the blessed month of Ramadan. The angels descend down to the earth, and the earth is overwhelmed with peace and serenity until the break of dawn and when the doors of Paradise are opened, the worshipper is encouraged to turn to Allah to ask for his needs for this world and the Hereaft
--------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
8) THE ONE WHO IS SUFFERING INJUSTICE & OPRESSION:
--------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
The Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said to Mua'ad Ibn Jabal (RA): 'Beware of the supplication of the unjustly treated, because there is no shelter or veil between it (the supplication of the one who is suffering injustice) and Allah (SWT)'.
[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
The prophet (SAWW) declared: 'Three men whose dua is never rejected (by Allah) are: the fasting person until he breaks his fast (in another narration, when he breaks fast), the just ruler and the one who is oppressed.'
[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]
In another hadith; The Prophet (SAWW) declared: 'Three du'as are surely answered: The du'a of the oppressed, the du'a of the traveler, and the du'a of the father/mother (upon their child)'.
The One who is suffering injustice is heard by Allah (SWT) when he invokes Allah (SWT) to retain his rights from the unjust one or oppressor. Allah (SWT) has sworn to help the one who is suffering from injustice sooner or later as the Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said.
------------------------
9) THE TRAVELER:
------------------------
The Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said: "Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler."
[al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]
During travel supplication is heard by Allah (SWT) if the trip is for a good reason, but if the trip is for a bad intention or to perform illegal things (making sins) this will not apply to it.
--------------------------
---------------------------------------
10) THE PARENT'S SUPPLICATION FOR THEIR CHILD:
--------------------------
---------------------------------------
The Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said; Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler.
[al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]
--------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------
11) Dua after praising ALLAH & giving salat on The Prophet (S.A.W.W):
--------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------
Narrated Faddalah ibn Ubayd (RA): that the Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said: 'When anyone of you makes du'a, let him start by glorifying his Lord and praising Him, then let him send blessings upon the Prophet (SAWW), then let him pray for whatever he wants.'
[abu Dawud #1481, at-Tirmidhi #3477]
In another hadith; Baqiy ibn Mukhallid (RA) narrated that that The Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said: 'Every du'a is not responded to until one sends blessings upon the Prophet (SAWW).'
[al-Bayhaqi]
In another hadith; Umar (RA) narrated that the Prophet (SAWW) said: 'Du'a is detained between the heavens and the earth and no part of it is taken up until you send blessings upon your Prophet (SAWW).'
[at-Tirmidhi #486]
--------------------------
-----------------
12) DUA DURING THE MONTH OF RAMADAN:
--------------------------
----------------------------
Ramadan is month full of many blessings, thus the du'a of Ramadan is a blessed one. This can be inferred from the Prophet (SAWW) saying: 'When Ramadan comes, the Doors of Mercy (another narration says Paradise) are opened, and the doors of Hell are closed, and the Shaitans are locked up' Thus, it is clear that du'a during Ramadan has a greater chance of being accepted, as the Gates of Paradise and Mercy are opened.
[Sahih al-Bukhari #1899, Muslim #1079 and others]
--------------------------
--------------
13) First Ten days of Dhul-Hijjah:
--------------------------
--------------
The Prophet (SAWW) said: 'There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than during these ten days'
[Sahih al-Bukhai #969 and others]
Dua when the heart reaches out to Allah and is ready to be totally sincere.

14) Dua of the one fasting until he breaks his fast:
--------------------------
-----------------------------------
The Messenger of Allah (SAWW) said: 'Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler.'
[al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]
--------------------------
-----------------
15) While reciting Surah al-Fatihah:
--------------------------
-----------------
The Prophet (SAWW) said that Allah the Exalted had said: ' I have divided the prayer into two halves between Me and My servant, and My servant will receive what he asks for. When the servant says: Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the universe, Allah the Most High says: My servant has praised Me. And when he (the servant) says: The Most Compassionate, the Merciful, Allah the Most High says: My servant has lauded Me. When he (the servant) says: Master of the Day of Judgment, He remarks: My servant has glorified Me, and sometimes He will say: My servant entrusted (his affairs) to Me. When he (the worshipper) says: Thee do we worship and of Thee do we ask help, He (Allah) says: This is between Me and My servant, and My servant will receive what he asks for. Then, when he (the worshipper) says: Guide us to the straight path, the path of those to whom Thou hast been Gracious -- not of those who have incurred Thy displeasure, nor of those who have gone astray, He (Allah) says: This is for My servant, and My servant will receive what he asks for.
[Muslim 4: 395]
