Praise Allah(Swt) first:
Fadala ibn ‘Ubayd said, “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, heard a man making supplication in his prayer without glorifying Allah Almighty or praying for blessing on the Prophet. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘This one was in a hurry.’ Then he called him and said to him – or to someone else – “When one of you prays, he should begin by glorifying his Lord, glory be to Him! and praising Him, and then pray for blessing on the Prophet. Then he should ask for anything else he wants afterwards.'”[Abu Dawud and at-Tirmidhi]
The Best of Supplication:
The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘The best of supplications is the supplication on the day of ‘Arafah and the best which I and the Prophets before me have said: “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulk wa lahul-hamd wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer” ‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all praise and sovereignty and He is over all things omnipotent.’ [Authenticated by Sheikh al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him)]✍✔
Islam is portrayed as a religion of terror. This is the reason behind this dislike. They call it Islamophobia but actually this is terror-phobia; people are afraid of terror. ‘You are talking about a system of terror and you are presenting it as if it is Islam. You have named terror as Islam’. Actually there is compassion, mercy, love, arts, aesthetics, science, beauty and everything beautiful in Islam.
