      Religion of Islam:
      Shaykh Abdurrazzaq al-Badr حفظه الله said in his book The Fiqh of Supplications and Remembrance in the chapter of the etiquettes of supplication:

      Ibn al-Qayyim رحمه الله said in Madarij al-Salikin regarding the supplication in Surah al-Fatihah:

      Since asking Allah to be guided to the straight path is the loftiest request and its attainment is the most noble of gifts, Allah taught His slaves how to ask Him.

      So He commanded them to precede it with His praise, extolment and magnification. Then He mentions their servitude and their acknowledgment of His Tawhid. So these are two means in achieving their request: Seeking nearness to him by His Names and Attributes and seeking nearness to him by way of His servitude.

      So one’s supplication along with these two ways in seeking nearness will almost never be rejected…

      Until his statement:

      So Surah al-Fatihah has combined these two means of seeking nearness and they are: (1) His praise, extolment and magnification and (2) their servitude and their acknowledgment of His Tawhid.

      And then this is followed by the most important  of requests and the best of desires which is the guidance of Allah after the two means of seeking nearness. So the supplicator is deserving of having his supplication answered.

      فقه الادعية و الاذكار ٤١٤

      Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin رحمه الله said:

      From the wisdom and mercy of Allah upon His slaves is that for each obligatory act, He has legislated a voluntary act of the same type, in order for the believer to increase his Iman by performing these voluntary acts and in order to complete his obligatory acts on the Day of Resurrection. Verily the obligatory actions are afflicted with deficiencies. So these voluntary acts that are of its same type complete them.

      So there is obligatory Wudhu and voluntary Wudhu. There is obligatory prayer and voluntary prayer. There is obligatory charity and there is voluntary charity. There is obligatory fasting and there is voluntary fasting. There is obligatory Hajj and voluntary Hajj. There is obligatory Jihad and there is voluntary Jihad. There is obligatory knowledge and there is voluntary knowledge. So on and so forth.
