“The best dua is the most sincere one made straight from the heart.”
The heart will know the sincerity of the soul. True and most humbled umrah dua.
As you can see there is no one answer. There is a magnitude of solutions. What I learnt is that it depends on your nayat and how you make your heart one with god. A solemn dua is complete and benevolent through love.
