First of all, we’d like to state that in fact, a true believer never gives up supplicating to his Lord and imploring Him for guidance. Almighty Allah teaches us to call upon Him and seek His forgiveness all the time. In the Qur’an, Almighty Allah teaches us: “Ask Allah of His bounty. Lo! Allah is ever Knower of all things.” (An-Nisa’: 32) Also: “And when My servant question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them bear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright.” (Al-Baqarah: 186)
In His Hadith, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, guides us to the importance of Du`a and says: “Du`a is a weapon of a believer, a pillar of religion and a light of the heavens and the earth.” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Would I guide you to what would protect you against your enemies and bring you provision?’ Supplicate to Allah by day and night, for supplication is the weapon of a believer.”
It is not a requirement when making du`aa’ to supplicate Allah in a very particular and detailed way of your needs. However, there is nothing wrong to supplicate Allah in details regarding a certain issue which is not haram (prohibited). So, there is nothing wrong to ask Allah in details regarding a certain issue as long as it is not haram. However, if you feel that you would be distracted as you said, then you can make du`aa’ briefly or generally and Almighty Allah knows what is in your heart.
