Fasting And Making Du'aa - IslamWeb. by Taamas111 (m): 1:53am on January 14

Question

Does Fasting got to do with thanking Allah?
e.g. hard good news decided to fast.
Some Du'aa comes with numbers (e.g. read
this Du'aa x7 or x40 or x100 times then you
will see miracle). What if you don't say it
that many times as required?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Being grateful and thankful to Allah is by
remembering Him with the tongue, heart and
limbs.
Remembering Him with the heart is to
believe that the blessings that are bestowed
on you are by the Grace of Allah. Allah Says
(what means): {And whatever of blessings and
good things you have, it is from Allah.}
[16:53].
Remembering Him with the tongue is to
mention the blessings of Allah on you,
ascribing them to Him, and not to show off
and exalt oneself over other people. Allah
Says (what means): {And proclaim the Grace
of your Lord.} [93:11].
Remembering Him with the limbs is to use
these bounties in the obedience of Allah.
Allah Says (what means): {Work you, O family
of Daawood, with thanks.} [34:13].
There is no doubt that fasting is one of the
most important acts of worship of the limbs.

It is indeed a way of being grateful to Allah.
You have to know, dear brother, that no
matter to what extent a person performs
acts of obedience, he can never be grateful
about all the bounties that Allah blessed him/
her with, as Allah Says (what means): {And if
you count the favours of Allah, never could
you be able to count them.} [16:18].
As regards the second question, the
supplications (and remembrance) that Allah
has legislated to be said according to a given
number, have to be complied with. The
Prophet said: ''He who visits a sick
person whose appointed time of death has
not yet come, and says seven times: ''I ask
Allah, Al-'Atheem (The Greatest), the Lord of
the magnificent Throne to cure you, except
that he is cured from his disease.''
So this supplication and others have to be
complied with regarding the number of times
that they have to be said. If a supplication is
not said according to its specific number, it
might not be of the same excellence as if it
is said exactly according to the number
specified.

Finally we draw the attention of the
questioner that we do not know of a
supplication in the Sunnah that has to be
said 40 times. As regards the saying of the
questioner 'then you will see a miracle' we
do not understand what he means by this.
Allah Knows best.
