How many times should we recite: Ya Rabb?
1. ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “When the servant said,”O Lord! [Ya Rabb]” four times. Allah said, “I am listening to you, my servant. Ask and you will be granted.”
2. I have seen another narration of Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) where he said: “Whenever a servant said,”O Lord! O Lord!” Allah said,”I am listening to you, I am listening to you.”
3. And another where people complained to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) of the drought. He said, “Kneel down and say: “O Lord! O Lord!“. And the index rises skyward. Immediately, it rained so much that they wanted it to stop.”
4. Atam (114H) said: “Whenever a servant said, “O Lord! O Lord! O Lord! “Allah looks at him carefully [gives him his attention]. “We mentioned this to Hasan Basri said: “Do not you read the Quran?” Then he recited: (Surah Ali ‘Imran, verse: 191-195)
So my question is, should we say: Ya Rabb two times, three or four times?
