    Duas for difficulties and hardships

    I found this on another website and thought it would be of benefit......

    At times of distress the Messenger of Allah (SAW) would say:

    La ilaha illa allahu al-atheemu al-haleemu, la ilaha illa allahu rabbul arshil-atheemi, la ilaha illa allahu
    rabbus-samawati wa rabbul-ardhi wa rabbul-arshil-kareemi (Agreed Upon by Bukhari and Muslim)

    (There is no ilah except Allah the Magnificent, The Forbearing. There is no ilah except Allah Lord of the Magnificent
    Throne. There is no ilah except Allah Lord of the Heavens, Lord of the Earth, and Lord of the Noble Throne)


    It is reported of the Prophet (SAW) that if something distressed him he would say:

    "Ya hayyu ya qayyumu, bi-rahmatica astagheethu" (At Tirmidhi)

    (O' Living (a life not followed by death), O Sustainer, in your Mercy I plead for rescue)

    Abu Bakrata (RA) stated that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said "The supplications of the distressed are:

    "Allahumma rahmataka arjoo, fala takilnee ila nafsee tarfata eynin, wa aslihlee sha'nee kullahu, la ilaha illa anta" (Abu
    Dawud)

    (O' my ilah it is your Mercy that I beseech, so do not entrust me to myself for even a twinkle of an eye, and correct for
    me all my affairs, there is no ilah other than You)

    The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to Asma bint Umaysin: "Shall I not teach you a few words which you can say when you are distressed - or at the time of distress -

    "Allahu allahu rabbee la ushriku bihi shayan" (Abu Dawud)

    (Allah, Allah my Lord I associate not with Him a thing)


    The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "The petition of Thin-Noon (Jonah) which he petitioned with when he was inside the whale:

    "La ilaha illah anta, subhanaka innee kuntu minath-thalimeena"

    (There is no ilah except You, Glorified are Thee, I have been one of the unjust)

    "No Muslim ever supplicated Allah with this supplication in any matter at all, except that Allah answered his supplication" (At-Tirmidhi)

    It is reported of the Prophet (SAW) that he said: "No preoccupying concern, or sadness inflicts a bondservant whereupon he says:

    "Allahumma innee abduka, wabnu abdika, wabnu amatika, nasiyatee biyadika, madhin fiyya hukmuka, adlun fiyya qadha'uka, as aluka bikulli ismin huwalaka, sammayta bihi nafsaka, aw anzaltahu fee kitabika, aw allamtahu ahadan min khaliqika, aw ista tharta bihi fee ilmil ghaybi indaka, an taj'alal- qur'ana rabee'a, wa noora sadree, wa jala'a huznee, wa thahaba hammee"

    (O' my ilah I am your bondservant, son of your bondsman, and son of your bondwoman. My forelock is in your Hands; your
    judgement is continuously being carried out upon me; your sentence upon me is just. I ask You with every name that is
    yours, with which You have named yourself, brought down in your book, taught to one of your creation, or have preferred
    for Yourself in the hidden knoweldge, with You; that You make the Quran the spring of my heart, and the light of my chest,
    and the despellation of my sadness, and deportation of my (preoccupying) concern)

    ...except that Allah would dispel his concern and his sadness, and would replace it with ease and relaxation for him."
    (Ahmad and Ibn Hibban)


    Allah (SWT) said: "Those that say, when afflicted with calamity

    "Inna lil-lahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon" (Surah Al Baqarah 2:156)

    (To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return)

    ...They are those upon whom (descend) blessings from their Lord and Mercy. And they are the ones that are guided." (Surah al Baqarah 2:157)

    Ummu Salama (RA) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) saying: "There is not a slave afflicted with a calamity
    who then says:

    "Inna lil-lahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oona, allhumma'jurnee fee museebatee, wa akhliflee khayran minha"

    (We are for Allah, and we are, to Him, returning. 'O my ilah grant me reward in my calamity, and cause it to be succeeded
    with good consequence for me)

    ... except that Allah would grant him reward in his calamity, and would succeed it with good consequences for him."
    (Muslim)

    Question :

    What are the times, places and situations where du’aa’ is answered?
    And what is meant by the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of
    Allaah be upon him) “Dabr al-salawaat al-maktoobah (following the
    prescribed prayers)*? Is the prayer of a father for his child answered,
    or is it a prayer against him that is answered? I hope you can explain
    all these matters.


    Answer :

    Praise be to Allaah.

    There are many times and places where du’aa’ is answered. There
    follows a summary thereof:

    1 – Laylat al-Qadar. It was narrated that کAa’ishah asked the
    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “If I know what
    night is Laylat al-Qadar, what should I say during it?* He said: “Say:
    Allaahumma innaka کafuwwan tuhibb ul-کafwa fa’fu کanni (O Allaah, You
    are forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me).*

    2 – Du’aa’ in the depths of the night, the time before dawn, the
    time when Allaah descends to bestow His bounty upon His slaves, to meet
    their needs and to relieve their distress, when He says: “Who will call
    upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him?
    Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?* narrated by
    al-Bukhaari, 1145.

    3 – Following the prescribed prayers. According to the hadeeth of
    Abu Umaamah, it was said: “O Messenger of Allaah, which du’aa’ is
    heard?* He said: “In the last third of the night, and following the
    prescribed prayers.* Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3499; classed as hasan by
    al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

    There was some difference of scholarly opinion concerning the
    phrase dabr al-salawaat al-maktoobah (“following the prescribed
    prayers*) – does it mean before the salaam or afterwards?

    Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah and his student Ibn al-Qayyim were of
    the view that it is before the salaam. Ibn Taymiyah said: “The word dabr
    refers to something that is part of a thing, like dabr al-haywaan (the
    hindquarters of an animal).* Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1.305. Shaykh Ibn
    کUthaymeen said: “What has been narrated of du’aa’ following the prayer
    is before the salaam and what has been narrated of dhikr following the
    prayer is after the salaam, because Allaah says (interpretation of the
    meaning):

    “When you have finished As-Salaah (the congregational prayer),
    remember Allaah standing, sitting down, and (lying down) on your sides*

    [al-Nisa’ 4:103]
    See: Kitaab al-Du’aa’ by Shaykh Muhammad al-Hamad, p. 54

    4 – Between the adhaan and the iqaamah. It is narrated in a saheeh
    report that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
    said: “A du’aa’ offered between the adhaan and iqaamah is not
    rejected.*
    Narrated by Abu Dawood (521) and al-Tirmidhi (212). See also Saheeh
    al-Jaami’, 2408.

    5 – When the call for the prescribed prayers is given and when the
    ranks are drawn up for battle, as it says in the marfoo’ hadeeth of Sahl
    ibn Sa’d: “There are two that will not be rejected, or will rarely be
    rejected: du’aa’ at the time of the call for prayer and at the time of
    battle when the fighting begins.* Narrated by Abu Dawood; it is a saheeh
    report. See Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3079.

    6 – When rain falls, as it said in the hadeeth of Sahl ibn Sa’d
    that is attributed to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
    him): “There are two which will not be rejected: du’aa’ at the time of
    the call (to prayer) and when it is raining.* Narrated by Abu Dawood and
    classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’ (3078).

    7 – At a certain time of the night, as the Prophet (peace and
    blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “During the night there is a time
    when the Muslim does not ask for the good of this world and the
    Hereafter but it will be given to him, and that happens every night.*
    Narrated by Muslim, 757.

    8 – A certain time on Friday. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and
    blessings of Allaah be upon him) mentioned Friday and said: “During it
    there is a time when a Muslim slave does not stand and pray and ask
    Allaah for something, but He will give it to him,* and he gestured with
    his hand to indicate how short that time is. Narrated by al-Bukhaari,
    935; Muslim, 852. See also question no. 21748.

    9 – When drinking Zamzam water. It was narrated from Jaabir (may
    Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of
    Allaah be upon him) said: “Zamzam water is for that for which it is
    drunk.* Narrated by Ahmad and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh
    al-Jaami’, 5502.

    10 – When prostrating. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah
    be upon him) said: “The closest that a person is to his Lord is when he
    is prostrating, so say a great deal of du’aa’ then.* Narrated by Muslim,
    482.

    11 – When hearing the crowing of a rooster, because of the hadeeth:
    “When you hear the crowing of a rooster, ask Allaah of His bounty, for
    he has seen an angel.* Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2304; Muslim, 2729.

    12 – When saying the du’aa’, “Laa ilaaha illa anta, subhaanaka,
    inni kuntu min al-zaalimeen ([none has the right to be worshipped but
    You (O Allaah)], Glorified (and Exalted) be You [above all that (evil)
    they associate with You]! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers – cf
    al-Anbiya’ 21:87]).* It was narrated in a saheeh hadeeth that the
    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The prayer of
    Dhu’l-Noon (Yoonus) which he said when he was in the belly of the whale:
    کLaa ilaaha illa anta, subhaanaka, inni kuntu min al-zaalimeen ([none
    has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allaah)], Glorified (and
    Exalted) be You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]! Truly,
    I have been of the wrongdoers.’ No Muslim recites this du’aa’ concerning
    any matter but Allaah will answer him.* Narrated by al-Tirmidhi and
    classed as saheeh in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3383.

    In his commentary on the passage (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And (remember) Dhun‑Noon (Jonah), when he went off in anger, and
    imagined that We shall not punish him (i.e. the calamities which had
    befallen him)! But he cried through the darkness (saying): Laa ilaaha
    illa Anta [none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allaah)],
    Glorified (and Exalted) be You [above all that (evil) they associate
    with You]! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers.*

    88. So We answered his call, and delivered him from the distress.
    And thus We do deliver the believers (who believe in the Oneness of
    Allaah, abstain from evil and work righteousness)*

    [al-Anbiya’ 21:87-88]

    Al-Qurtubi said: In this verse, Allaah stipulates that whoever
    calls upon Him, He will answer him as He answered and saved Dhu’l-Noon
    (Yoonus). This is what is meant by the words “And thus We do deliver the
    believers*.

    Al-Jaami’ li Ahkaam il-Qur’aan, 11/334.

    13 – If a calamity befalls him and he says, Inna Lillaahi wa inna
    ilayhi raaji’oon, Allaahumma ujurni fi museebati w'ukhluf li khayran
    minha (Truly, to Allaah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; O
    Allaah, reward me in this calamity and compensate me with something
    better than it). It was narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh (918) that Umm
    Salamah said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of
    Allaah be upon him) say: “There is no calamity that befalls one of the
    Muslims and he responds by saying کInnaa Lillaahi wa innaa ilahi
    raaji'oon, Allaahumma ujurni fi museebati w'ukhluf li khayran minha
    (Truly, to Allaah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; O Allaah,
    reward me in this calamity and compensate me with something better than
    it),’ but Allaah will compensate him with something better than it.*

    14 – The prayer of people after the soul of the deceased has been
    taken. According to the hadeeth, the Prophet (peace and blessings of
    Allaah be upon him) entered upon Abu Salamah (after he had died) and his
    eyes were open. He closed them and said: “When the soul is taken, the
    gaze follows it.* Some of his family got upset and he said: “Do not pray
    for anything but good for yourselves, for the angels say Ameen to
    whatever you say.* Narrated by Muslim. 2732.

    15 – Du’aa’ for one who is sick. Muslim (919) narrated that Umm
    Salamah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be
    upon him) said: “When you visit a sick person, say good things, for the
    angels say Ameen to whatever you say…* When Abu Salamah died, I came to
    the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and
    said: “Abu Salamah has died.* He said: “Say: O Allaah, forgive me and
    him, and compensate me well.* She said: I said: And Allaah compensated
    me with one who was better for me than him: Muhammad (peace and
    blessings of Allaah be upon him).

    16 – The prayer of the one who has been wronged. In the hadeeth it
    says: “Fear the prayer of the one who has been wronged, for there is no
    barrier between it and Allaah.* Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 469; Muslim,
    19. And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
    “The prayer of the one who has been wronged will be answered, even if he
    is an evildoer, for his evildoing is only against himself.* Narrated by
    Ahmad. See Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3382.

    17 – The du’aa’ of a father for his child – i.e., for his benefit

    and the du’aa’ of a fasting person during the day of his fast, and the
    prayer of the traveller. It was narrated in a saheeh report that our
    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are
    three prayers that are not rejected: the prayer of a father for his
    child, the prayer of the fasting person and the prayer of the
    traveller.* Narrated by al-Bayhaqi; see Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2032;
    al-Saheehah, 1797.

    18 – The prayer of a father against his child – i.e., to harm him.
    According to a saheeh hadeeth: کThere are three prayers that will be
    answered: the prayer of one who has been wronged, the prayer of a
    traveller, and the prayer of a father against his child.* Narrated by
    al-Tirmidhi, 1905. See Saheeh al-Adab al-Mufrad, 372.

    19 – The du’aa’ of a righteous person for his parents, as stated in
    the hadeeth narrated by Muslim (1631): “When the son of Adam dies, all
    his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, a righteous
    son who will pray for him, or beneficial knowledge.*

    20 – Du’aa’ after the sun has passed its zenith and before Zuhr. It
    was narrated from کAbd-Allaah ibn al-Saa’ib (may Allaah be pleased with
    him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
    him) used to pray four rak'ahs after the sun had passed its zenith and
    before Zuhr, and he said: “This is a time when the gates of heaven are
    opened and I want a good deed of mine to ascend during this time.*
    Narrated by al-Tirmidhi and its isnaad is saheeh. See Takhreej
    al-Mishkaat, 1/337.

    21 – Du’aa’ when going to bed at night, and saying the du’aa’
    that
    was narrated for that time. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah
    be upon him) said: “Whoever goes to bed at night and says Laa ilaaha
    ill-Allaah wa Allaahu akbar wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah
    (There is no god but Allaah and Allaah is Most Great and there is no
    power and no strength except with Allaah), then he says: Allaahumma
    ighfir li (O Allaah, forgive me), or he makes du’aa’, his prayer will be
    answered, and if he does wudoo’ and prays, his prayer will be accepted.*
    Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1154.

    Question Re: Duas for difficulties and hardships

    Assalaamu Alaikum.

    Awkward question:

    Ayatul Kursi , Falaq, Naas are considered among the best protections.

    But protection against what? Magics and Jinns? or All problems?

    We know that Hazrat Muhammad (peace, mercy, blessings and salutations be upon him) used or suggested them for protection in general.

    But is there any shahi hadith which clearly shows how he used them for saving from calamities, enemies, nafs, etc?

    Thanks in advance.

    ,

    The 3 Quls and ayat ul kursi, are protection against, jinn, envy, evil eye, magic etc., If you read the meanings of the surahs especials An Nas and Al Falaq you'll see

    The sunnah with the 3 Quls (Al Ikhlas, Al Falaq ,and An Nas ) which is done before bed is,
    blow in your hands then recite them then rub all over the exposed parts of your body, do this process 3 times
    then after that recite ayat ul kursi.

    They should also be read in the morning after waking up, I'm however uncertain as to if the process mentioned above has to also be done in the mornings.
    But it is still good to recite them upon waking up

    And Allah knows best

    Is there anyway of breaking things down so it doesn't look like a massive paragraph? maybe several short posts?
