    :salam2:

    With the booming of social networking sites, people share almost everything, including their du'a.

    For example (making it up), "O Allah, I hope to get the job I applied for." And then people would comment ameen, good luck! or click likes.

    "Call upon your Lord in humility and privately; indeed, He does not like transgressors." Al-A'raf (7.55)

    Would this ayat then categorize that people who call to Allah out loud, status and tweets included, as going beyond what is prescribed?

    Always there is a middle ground, right?

    Assalaam alaikum,

    Good to see you posting.

    I came across this:. Abu Bakr as-Siddiq was heard to say, "The supplication of a brother in Allah is answered." This is from Bukhari
