So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth (Islam). [Adhere to] the fitrah of Allah (Islamic monotheism) upon which He has created [all] people. [Quran 30:30]
And your Lord says: ‘Call upon Me; I will respond to you’ [Qur’an 40:60]
Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan al-‘Ajlaan (hafidhahullaah) comments:

“This noble verse from Surah Ghaafir shows Allah’s (jalla wa ‘alaa) Bounty toward His slaves, and the extensiveness of His Giving and Generosity, as He says to His slaves: {Call upon Me; I will respond to you}, (meaning) ‘Ask Me.’ He loves for His slaves to ask Him. He loves for His slaves to ask Him (jalla wa ‘alaa) so He may give them, and that is due to His Generosity, Bounty and the fact that He gives extensively.
And in His (jalla wa ‘alaa) Statement ‘your Lord says,’ He endears Himself to His slaves. He did not say ‘Allah says,’ rather He said ‘your Rabb (Lord) says,’ meaning the One Who nurtured you (rabbaakum) with blessings and bestowed generously upon you since the time of your creation until your last form.
{Call upon Me; I will respond to you}. This is a command from Allah (jalla wa ‘alaa) to ask, supplicate to and worship Him, and a promise that He will answer; and Allah (jalla wa ‘alaa) never breaks His promise. So He (jalla wa ‘alaa) will give and fulfill what He has promised. He commanded (His slaves) to make du’aa and promised that He will answer them. And from the means of (attaining) Allah’s response is to humble oneself before Him and implore Him, and persist in making du’aa.
Allah (jalla wa ‘alaa) loves those who persist in making du’aa. And as the poet said: ‘Allah gets angry if you leave off asking Him whereas man gets angry if you ask him.’ A human being hates being asked persistently and gets irritated, but Allah (jalla wa ‘alaa) loves that. A created being – no matter how much he has – is limited, and he fears the diminition of what he has with him. But Allah (jalla wa ‘alaa) is Most Generous; what He has with Him will never diminish. And the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Allaahu akthar,’ meaning the more you ask Him, the more He will answer and give.”
