The respected Shaykh Hajee Farooq rahmatullahi alayh used to say that:
‘When Allah ta’ala wishes to accept the dua of a person He grants a person the taufeeq (inclination) of making that dua.
This is because if Allah did not want to accept this person’s dua, He would never have granted this person the ability to turn to Him in supplication’
