Yes, duas affect the future,:

"And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me—indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of every supplicant when he calls upon Me..." (2:186)

Respond means to accept or deny (to give something better).

but they don't change qadr.:

Ubadah ibn Al-Samit: Son! You will not get the taste of the reality of faith until you know that what has come to you could not miss you, and that what has missed you could not come to you. I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: The first thing Allah created was the pen. He said to it: Write. It asked: What should I write, my Lord? He said: Write what was decreed about everything till the Last Hour comes. Son! I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say : He who dies on something other than this does not belong to me. (Sunan Abi Dawud)

If the Pen has already written down everything that is to happen it can't change, otherwise it would not have followed Allah's command correctly (as it wrote incorrectly).

It is a similar concept to how we have free will even though Allah knows everything that happens. Let me explain through an example:-

  • Allah writes the 'qadr' that you make a dua for a promotion, but you still make the dua from your own will. Allah just knows what you will choose to do, he doesn't necessarily control it.

  • Allah, in response to the dua (that he knows you make), will write in 'qadr' that you get a promotion.

So, the dua did affect your future but it didn't change Qadr. You chose to make a dua and Allahthe Pen had already written that into the Qadr, and heAllah had already written the response to the dua too.

So, the choice you make to make a dua does make a difference, but it doesn't affect Qadr which Allah has already written down. If you had chosen to not make the dua, the dua would not have affected the future (as Allah would not have written it down).
