Al-Mujeeb, The Responsive

In more than one verse, Allah promises to respond to our supplications (so long as it is not a supplication of sin or severing blood ties). The prophets never hesitated to request from Allah, and so they did by pouring out their hearts.

Who shall inherit me, and inherit the posterity of Yaqub and make him, my Lord, one with whim You are Well-Pleased!" {Q19:4-6}
