Lit. a calling (to someone). This refers to a kind of prayer where one calls upon God. For example, one can make a dua for forgiveness, wealth, health, the hereafter, or any topic imaginable. This can take place in two forms. One can either talk to God in their own words, or one can recite a dua that the Prophet or Ahlul Bayt used to recite and copy their manner of speaking to God.
