اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ زَوَالِ نِعْمَتِكَ ، وَتَحَوُّلِ عَافِيَتِكَ ، وَفُجَاءَةِ نِقْمَتِكَ ، وَجَمِيعِ سَخَطِكَ

Allāh, I seek refuge with You from losing Your blessing, losing the health that You gave me, the sudden onset of Your wrath, and anything that may lead to Your displeasure (Muslim #2739)


اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي ذَنْبِي وَأَذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قَلْبِي وَأَجِرْنِي مِنْ مُضِلاتِ الْفِتَنِ

Allah, forgive my sins, remove the anger in my heart, and protect me from the trials of misguidance. (Tabarani, al-Du’a #1340)


اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَدَنِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي سَمْعِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَصَرِي، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Allah! Grant health to my body. Allah! Grant health to my hearing. Allah! Grant health to my sight, There is no deity worthy of worship but You (Abu Dawud #5049)


Three simple du’as you can say in ruku and sujud – after having said your usual dhikr

 اللَّهُمَّ يا مُقَلِّبَ القُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلى دِينِكَ

Allāh, the One who changes the hearts, keep my heart firm on your religion

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ حُسْنَ الخاتِمَةِ

Allāh, I ask you for the best end

اللَّهُمَّ ارْزٌقْنِي تَوبَةً نَصُوحًا قَبْلَ المَوتِ

Allāh, nourish me with a sincere repentance before death


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الهَمِّ وَالحَزَنِ، وَالعَجْزِ وَالكَسَلِ، وَالبُخْلِ وَالجُبْنِ، وَضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ، وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ

Allāh, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being over powered by men

Allāh’s Messenger would frequently make this supplication (Bukhārī #2893), indeed he rarely left it (Abū Ya’lā #3700) and he would teach it to his Companions (Bazzār #6235)

Let’s not forget that one of the reasons behind trial, tribulation and difficulty is for us to turn back to Allah. Remember Him, worship Him and make du’a for yourselves and your brothers and sisters everywhere. AND DONT FORGET the du’a of Jumu’ah.

Allāh Says

By the night as it conceals
By the day as it reveals
By Him who created the male and female
The paths you choose differ greatly:
There is one who is generous,
mindful of Allah,
and testifies to Goodness
We shall pave his way towards Ease
There is the one who is stingy,
and denies Goodness
We shall pave his way towards Hardship.
And his wealth will not help him as he falls. (Q92:1-11)


“The greater the trial, the greater the reward. When Allah loves people, He tests them. Whoever is content during that trial earns Allah’s good pleasure, and whoever is resentful earns His anger.” (Tirmidhi)
