this snippet will explain how to create ajax requests with laravel specially with forms

to use ajax with laravel you must follow these steps 

1- add csrf meta tag to head in your html file

<meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}"> 

2- create your route to use it in the form like this

Route::post("sendMessage", ['uses'=>'MessageController@store', 'as'=>'sendMessage']);

3- create your form and assign your route to form action and specify form method like this

<form class="p-5 bg-white" id="messagingForm" action="{{ route('sendMessage') }}" method="post">  // assigned action and method here            

<div class="row form-group">
<div class="col-md-12 mb-3 mb-md-0">
<label class="text-black" for="fname">الاسم <span class="text-danger">*</span></label>
<input type="text" name="mes_name" id="name" class="form-control rounded-0">

<div class="row form-group">

<div class="col-md-12">
<label class="text-black" for="email">البريد الالكترونى <span class="text-danger">*</span></label>
<input type="email" name="mes_email" id="email" class="form-control rounded-0">

<div class="row form-group">

<div class="col-md-12">
<label class="text-black" for="subject">عنوان الرسالة</label>
<input type="subject" name="mes_subject" id="subject" class="form-control rounded-0">

<div class="row form-group">
<div class="col-md-12">
<label class="text-black" for="message">الرسالة <span class="text-danger">*</span></label>
<textarea name="mes_message" id="message" cols="30" rows="7" class="form-control rounded-0" placeholder="اكتب رسالتك هنا ..."></textarea>

<div class="row form-group">
<div class="col-md-12 text-right">
<button type="button" value="ارسال" id="sendMessageBTN" class="btn btn-primary mr-2 mb-2">ارسال</button>

4- create ajax request like this

$("#sendMessageBTN").click(function () {
// get form and its dependences
var theForm = $("#messagingForm"); // here specify the form
var formAction = theForm[0].action; // specify action of this form
var formMethod = theForm[0].method; // specify method of this form
var formData = theForm.serialize(); // specify data of this form
//console.log(formData); // you can console log form data before moving to the next step
//console.log(formAction); // you can console log form action before moving to the next step
//console.log(formMethod); // you can console log form method before moving to the next step

url: formAction ,
method: formMethod ,
data: formData ,
headers: {
'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')
dataType: "json",
success: function(data){
if (data['messages_errors']) {
console.log(data['messages_errors']) ;
} else {
console.log(data['messages_success']) ;
error: function(){
alert("failed .. Please try again !");
}) ;


5- create function in controller like this

public function store(Request $request) {           
$mes_name = $request->input('mes_name');
$mes_email = $request->input('mes_email');
$mes_subject = $request->input('mes_subject');
$mes_message = $request->input('mes_message');

$rules = [
'mes_name' => 'required',
'mes_email' => 'required|email',
'mes_message' => 'required',

$messages = [
'mes_name.required'=>"برجاء ادخال الاسم" ,
'mes_email.required'=>"برجاء ادخال البريد الالكترونى" ,
'mes_message.required'=>"برجاء كتابه الرسالة المطلوبه" ,

$validator = Validator::make($request->all(), $rules, $messages);

$errors = $validator->errors();

if (count($errors) > 0) {
return response()->json(['messages_errors'=>$errors]);
} else {
$newmessage = new Message();
$newmessage->name = $mes_name;
$newmessage->email = $mes_email;
$newmessage->subject = $mes_subject;
$newmessage->message = $mes_message;
$success = $newmessage->save();

if ($success) {
return response()->json(['messages_success'=>'تم ارسال الرساله بنجاح']);
} else {
return response()->json(['messages_errors'=>'حدث خطا ما ... برجاء المحاولة لاحقا']);
