Dua is asking Allah for help or for the fulfilment of a particular need. It expresses a slave's helplessness and dependence on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets directly in touch with one's Creator.
The purpose of man's creation is worship and according to a Hadeeth, 'dua is the essence of worship'. (Tirmizi) And according to another Hadeeth, 'dua is the worship'. (Tirmizi)
Dua is also a kind of worship just like Salaat, reciting Quran and making zikr. Therefore like all other acts one should take time out for duas. A Servant of Allah accepts his weaknesses and recognises his need for Allah. Out of all devotions, this humbleness and total submission is best expressed in dua.
One should keep in mind that the acceptance of duas also depends on the expectations of a person. Allah deals with people in accordance with what they expect of Him. In one Hadeeth, the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam has related the following Statement of Allah: 'I treat my servant as he expects of me…' (Bukhãri, Muslim)
