“And your Lord said: ‘Call upon Me, I will respond to you”
~ Surah Ghaafir, 40:60

Shaykh Ibn ‘Aqeel (rahimahullaah):

“This involves (a number of) meanings. First: existence, for the one who is not existent is not called upon. Second: richness, for the one who is poor is not called upon. Third: hearing, for the one who is deaf is not called upon. Fourth: generosity, for the one who is stingy is not called upon. Fifth: mercy, for the one who is merciless is not called upon. Sixth: power, for the one who is powerless is not called upon.”
