The etiquettes and conditions of supplication in Ayatollah Bahjat's words
How to Supplicate
Supplication requires the following:
1- Praising the Almighty God
2- Confessing to one’s sins and being penitent for them, which is just like repentance or the consequence of it.
3- Sending Salawats (peace and blessings) upon Prophet Mohammad and his descendants, who are the intermediaries of Divine Grace.
4- Weeping, and if that is not possible, pretending to cry, although it may be very brief.
5- And after all of these, seeking ones desires, which in this case, will be fulfilled. Of course, it is better if all these are done in Sajdah(prostration).
