Short Powerful Dua'a
He has hidden His Answering (your supplications) in Your prayers to Him so then do not consider any part of your prayers to Him as being insignificant as it is possible that within that prayer lies His Answering while you are not aware."
How many times we have called upon Allah (SWT), waiting patiently for an answer? We sit down to recite the extended supplications such as those in Sahifatul Sajjadiyah and the other beautiful pleas contained in Mafaatihul Jinaan thinking that the longer the prayer, the better chance that Allah (SWT) will accept it. We fail to realize that even one short dua of a few lines has as much a chance of being accepted by Allah as the 'longer' duas. The key to acceptance of a dua of any length is to ensure that we have maintained the prerequisites of supplication mentioned in the Quran and Prophetic words of wisdom, and to pray with a pure intention. If the prayer is fulfilled by Allah (SWT), we should realize that that is what was best for us in this life and the next; if it is deferred to the next world, then we need to accept that what we wanted may have been detrimental for our life in this world and more importantly, our status in the next life. We must accept that after all, Allah (SWT) knows best.

A young man
was on his deathbed when the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.f.)
came, sat near him, and told him to recite two kalimas (Shahadatain).
But the youth could not speak. The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.f.)
enquired if his mother was present? A woman sitting near his
head said, “Yes, I am his mother.”
The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.f.) asked, “ Are your displeased with him ?”
‘Yes, O Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.f.), we have not spoken to each other since the last six years.’
The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.f.) asked this woman to forgive her son. Thus at the Prophet’s instance she forgave his mistakes and was reconciled. At once the young man was able to recite the Kalima al-Shahadat.
The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.f.) asked him, “What do you see, at this moment .” “ O Prophet of Allah a dark and smelly man has got hold of me and is not leaving me.
