Duah in Islam is a wonderful gift granted to Muslims to appeal directly to our Creator. Duah provides the framework within which dependent Man appeal to his Omnipotent Lord. The more man raises  his hands in supplication , the more he realizes his utter dependency and Reality of his Creator. Milestones like birthdays and anniversaries are also occasions to reflect upon the endless Mercies of our Creator, along with the balance sheet of our good and not-so-good deeds. Duah thus also serves as a powerful bridgehead between our natural and supernatural worlds.
