Qunoot Al-Baqara: 186


وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِى عَنِّى فَإِنِّى قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لِى وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ ﴿١٨٦﴾

And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way.

اور اے پیغمبر! اگر میرے بندے تم سے میرے بارے میں سوال کریں تو میں ان سے قریب ہوں. پکارنے والے کی آواز سنتا ہوں جب بھی پکارتا ہے لہٰذا مجھ سے طلب قبولیت کریں اور مجھ ہی پرایمان و اعتماد رکھیں کہ

شاید اس طرح راسِ راست پر آجائیں

This verse tells us not to turn to anyone but Allah to ask for fulfillment of all our wants and needs, and also makes it clear that there is no other way to get satisfaction of our desires except to invoke Allah, who answers whenever called by a supplicant. It brings you near Allah and keeps you on the right path. Allah answers to the cry for help because the love of Allah for His servants is much greater than the love of a mother for her children. This dua’a may be recited before and other dua’a as it helps to get nearness of Allah and to have complete faith in Him alone; and because Allah says He will answer whenever He is called.
