The fundamental component of worship, dua, is the weapon of the believer. a means of altering the predetermined course that Allah SWT has already set for us. We might lessen the difficulties, challenges, and tests that Allah SWT may have planned for us by making prayers and duas from quran.

The Prophets of Allah SWT have also observed a pattern in which they have employed the proper names and attributes of Allah SWT.
