Abstract: 

Supplication and prayer, as mediums between man and God, are among important issues of religion and are among the prime, most sublime and intimate symbols and embodiments of religion which permeate our lives as blood circulates in our vein.
Jalaluddin Mawlawi is among the well-known figures who have explained the secrets of supplication and prayer in the profoundest manner. He maintains that God is the initiator of prayer and supplication, for He is the One who created the feeling of need in man.
Hence, any prayer or supplication is an outcome of God’s favor. In Mawlawi’s viewpoint, supplication is a light which has been lit by God in the universe to take all human beings out of darkness.
The present paper is an attempt to explain the viewpoints of Mawlawi about the concept and significance of supplication, real supplication, initiator of supplication, incentive, kinds, rituals and acceptance of supplication as well as its role in changing a divine decree.
