Some years ago, I was listening to a talk by Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan and he recommended this book, I didn't catch the author's name at the time but still went looking for it. When I found it, I wasn't sure how authentic it would be or how well recorded the hadiths are in this book, but since then it's actually become an important book for me. It is very well recorded and every dua is listed with all the narrations. I use it every Ramadan, I've split the 206 different duas up for the 30 days of Ramadan and love reading and thinking about these duas. .
.

My heart's been feeling very heavy lately and I remembered this book, I told myself, I'll read even one dua from here tonight, no matter how tired I feel. It's the commentary by  Khalid Baig that makes the duas mean more. He really helps someone like me see the message/lessons/importance of the duas. For example, this dua made by Suleiman (as) in surah An Naml, verse 19: .
.
"My Lord, grant me that I should be grateful for Your favour that You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I do the good deeds that You are pleased with. And admit me through Your mercy among Your pious servants." .
.

The commentary is: ~ We need Allah's help even in showing gratitude for His favours. Further, good deeds in themselves are not sufficient. We need good deeds that will be accepted by Allah. It is possible that our good deeds carry no weight in the sight of Allah because of some inherent defect or flaw that only He knows. ~ .
.
Doesn't the commentary help in using the dua in a better way?! Recommend this book for anyone looking for good dua books or something simple to follow and understand. .
. (I bought the book from a small Islamic bookshop, not sure if it is available online).
