The poet spoke true, when he said..

نحن ندعو الإله في كل كرب

ثم ننساه عند كشف الكروب

كيف نرجو إجابة لدعاء

قد سددنا طريقها بالذنوب

We pray to God in every distress,

And then we forget Him when our distress is lifted.

How can we hope that our prayer will be answered

When we have blocked its path with sins?

Al-Qur’an:

قُلْ أَرَأَيْتُكُم إِنْ أَتَاكُمْ عَذَابُ اللّهِ أَوْ أَتَتْكُمُ السَّاعَةُ أَغَيْرَ اللّهِ تَدْعُونَ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ

بَلْ إِيَّاهُ تَدْعُونَ فَيَكْشِفُ مَا تَدْعُونَ إِلَيْهِ إِنْ شَاء وَتَنسَوْنَ مَا تُشْرِكُونَ

Say (O Muhammad ): “Tell me if Allah’s Torment comes upon you, or the Hour comes upon you, would you then call upon any one other than Allah? (Reply) if you are truthful!”

Nay! To Him Alone you call, and, if He will, He would remove that (distress) for which you call upon Him, and you forget at that time whatever partners you joined with Him (in worship)!
6:41-42
