How do I use the names of Allah when making dua?
Start with the article of calling – “Ya” in Arabic or “Oh” in English. Then insert the name of Allah but remove the alif lam from the name. For example, Ya Rahman. The opposite is done at the end of du’a. Here you will say, for example, “innika anta Al GhafurAl Raheem.”
