Dua At Times Of Worry And Sorry in English

O Allah, I seek refuge in you from grief and sadness, from weakness and from laziness, from miserliness and from cowardice, from being overcome by debt and overpowered by men (i .e . others).

Al-Bukhari: 2893, 5425, 6363, 6369

The best ways to overcome stress and anxiety:

The braid is life. Stress is anything that causes mental, physical or spiritual tension. There is no leak. All that matters is how you handle it. This article does not discuss stress, anxiety, depression, or clinical counseling. If you feel depressed, you are not alone. It has been estimated that 75-90% of all visits to primary care physicians in the United States are related to stress-related issues. This is why it is wise to consult a doctor if you have physical symptoms of stress. However, here are some tips that can help you from a spiritual point of view.

Torture. Shots. Loss of property. The death of loved ones These are just some of the enormous challenges faced by Muslims in Mecca in the seventh century after their acceptance of Islam by a fierce tribe and polykeism in Mecca.

Detention. Bullying. Shots. Discrimination. Job Loss. Profiling. Hate crimes. Constant attention of the media. Monitoring. These are just some of the challenges facing today’s Muslims after September 11th. Like our predecessors in Mecca, we have begun to face considerable stress, anxiety and pressure, more than ever in our recent history on this continent, although the Muslims who were brought here as that slaves have faced a worse fate than we can even imagine.

1. Ask him. He is listening: Dua

Turn every anxiety, every fear and every concern into a Dua (supplication). Consider this as an additional reason to submit to God and to be at Sajdah (prostration), where you are closest to Allah. God listens and already knows what’s in your heart, but he wants you to ask him what you want.

The Prophet said: Allah is angry with those who ask him nothing (Tirmidhi).

The prophet once said that in prayer he would find rest and relief (Nasai). He also regularly asked God for forgiveness and remained prostrate during the prayer praising God (Tasbeeh) and asking for forgiveness (Bukhari).

Allah wants you to be specific. The prophet advised us to ask Allah exactly what we want instead of making vague Duas. Dua is the essence of worship (the prophet quoted in Tirmidhi).

“Call on your Lord humbly and privately: for Allah does not love those who go beyond the bounds, do not harm the earth after putting it in order, but call on it with fear.): For mercy Allah is (always) close to those who do good “(Quran 7: 55-56).

2. Tie your camel: MAKE YOUR SHARE

One day, the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) noticed that a Bedouin was leaving his camel without attaching him. He asked the Bedouin, “Why not tie your camel?” The Bedouins replied, “I trust Allah.” The prophet then said, “Fasten your camel first, and trust Allah” (Tirmidhi).

Muslims must never become fatalistic. Although we know that only Allah is in command and has decreed all things, we are all responsible for making the right choices and doing the right things in all situations of our lives. We must act (link to SV planning articles). We must work to alleviate the difficulties we face, our families and our communities.

Ask yourself the following questions if you are worried about the state of the world: are you part of the peace movement? Is your Masjid part of the peace movement? Are you part of an interreligious group with a program of peace and justice? Do you work with a group fighting against discrimination? If your answer is no, it’s time for you to plan your time and money to find solutions to the problems you face.

“Truly, Allah does not change the condition of men unless they change in themselves” (Quran 13:11).

Turn each worry into a Du’a and each Du’a into a plan of action. This will show your commitment to your request and focus your energy in the right direction.

3. Remember that human responsibility is limited

Even if we must do our duty to the best of our abilities, always remember that you do not control the outcome of events. Even the prophets did not control the result of their efforts. Some have succeeded, others have not. Once you have done your homework, leave the results to Allah. Whatever the results of your efforts, you will be rewarded for the role you played.

However, never underestimate your abilities. Understand the concept of Barakah (blessings of Allah) and remember that Allah can and Insha Allah will develop them if you sincerely exercise your energies for the right path.

4. Leave the world behind you FIVE TIMES A DAY

Use the five daily prayers as a way to become more forward-looking and less attached to this temporary world. Begin to distance yourself as soon as you hear Adhan, the call to prayer. When you practice Wudu, keep repeating Shahada, the statement of faith, as drops of water slip on your face, hands, arms, and hair. When you are ready to pray, mentally prepare to leave this world and all its worries and tensions behind you.

Of course, Shaytan will try to distract you during the prayer. But whenever that happens, go back and remember Allah. The more you return, the more Allah will reward you. Also, make sure that your Sajdas (prostrations) speak of Sajdas, in which you really connect to God and seek His mercy, praising Him and asking for forgiveness. (link to the Sajda article … Ramadan page)

5. Ask for help via SABR

Seek help from Sabr and Salat (Quran 2:45).

This instruction from Allah provides us with two essential tools that can soothe our worries and our pain. Patience and prayer are two sources of often neglected stress. Sabr is often translated as patience, but it’s not just that. This includes self-control, perseverance, endurance and a focused struggle to achieve one’s goal. Unlike patience, which involves resignation, the concept of Sabr includes the duty to stand firm to achieve your goals despite all the difficulties.

Being patient gives us control in situations where we feel we have little or no control. “We can not control what happens to us, but we can control our reaction to our situation,” is the mantra of many modern self-help books. Patience helps us to keep our mind and attitude in the face of our failing difficulties.

6. Excuse me! You do not run the world, it is.

It is important to remember that we do not control all the variables in the world. God does it. He is the Sage, the Omniscient. Sometimes our limited human faculties are unable to understand his wisdom behind what is happening to us and others, but know that he is in control and that as human beings we submit to his will , enrich our humanity and strengthen our obedience (Uboodiah, in Arabic). ) towards him. Read the story of Moses’ encounter with the mysteries behind God’s decision (Qur’an: 18: 60-82). Familiarize yourself with the 99 names of God, also known as His attributes. It’s a powerful way to know him.

“God-there is no divinity other than Him, the ever-living source, the self-subsisting source of all being, neither sleep nor surprise, and to Him belongs all that is in heaven and on the earth, who is there who knows how to intercede with him, unless it is by his permission? He knows all that is hidden from men and all that is hidden from them, whereas they can not access nothing of his knowledge except what he wants them to reach, his eternal power covers the heavens and the earth, and their keeping does not tire him, and he alone is truly exalted, great. “(Quran 2: 255).

The prophet recommended reading this verse, called Ayat al Kursi, after each prayer, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. Once Ali, Allah was pleased with him, approached the Prophet during a difficult time and found him in Sajda, where he kept saying “Ya Hayy Ya Qayyum”, words that are part of this verse.

7. The birds do not carry their food

Allah is al Razzaq (the provider).

“How many creatures are not feeding? It is Allah who feeds them and feeds them, because he hears and knows everything (Quran 29:60).”

Remembering that he is the provider, you will remember finding a job or providing for your family in this time of economic and political difficulties, when Muslims are often the last to be hired and the first to be fired, is in the hands of God, not yours. As Allah says in the Quran:

“And he provides him with sources that he could never imagine, and if anyone trusts Allah, he suffices (Allah), for Allah will surely realize his purpose. Allah has appointed proportion (Koran 65: 3).


8. God controls life and death

If you fear for your physical security, remember that only Allah gives life and takes it back and sets the time. No one can harm you unless Allah wants it. As he says in the Quran:

“Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you are in towers built strong and high!” (Qur’an 4:78)

9. Remember that life is short

It’s easy to get caught up in our own stress and anxiety. However, if we remember that our life is short and temporary and that eternal life is in the afterlife, it will put our concerns into perspective.

This belief in the transitory nature of the life of this world reminds us that whatever the difficulties, trials, anxieties and sorrows we suffer in this world, Insha Allah, we will only live for a short time. And more importantly, if we treat these tests with patience, Allah will reward us for that.

10. Do Zikr, Allah, Allah!

“… without doubt in the memory (Zikr) of Allah hearts find tranquility”
(Quran 13:28)

If you commute, use your time in Zikr. Choose any Tasbeeh and do it instead of listening to the radio or reading the newspaper. Maybe you can share it between Zikr and planning. Personally, I recite the Tasbeeh of “Subhana Allahe Wa Hamdihi, Subhan Allahil Azeem” 100 times while I was driving. The prophet taught us these two short sentences that are easy to say but will weigh heavily on our scale of good deeds in the afterlife.

When your heart feels heavy with stress or sorrow, remember Allah and surround yourself with his Zikr. Zikr refers to all forms of remembrance of Allah, including Salat, Tasbeeh, Tahmeed, Tahleel, supplication (Dua) and reading the Qur’an.

“And your Lord said, ‘Call me, I will answer your prayer …'” (Quran 40:60)

By remembering Allah in the way He has taught us, we are more likely to accept our prayers and mercy in difficult times. We communicate with the only One who not only hears and knows everything, but who can change our situation and give us the patience to face our difficulties.

“Remember me and I will remember you, be grateful to me and do not refuse me”
(Quran 2: 152)

11. Building on Allah: Tawakkul

When you wake up in the morning, thank Allah for giving you life after this short death called sleep. When you go out, say: “In your name, Allah, I trust Allah, there is no power or strength, except with Allah” (Bismillahi Tawakal to Allah, that’s what happens.) At night, remember Allah, with his praises on the lips.

Once you have established a plan that you intend to implement to address a specific problem in your life, trust the wiser and more affluent.

“When you have made a decision, place your trust in Allah” (Quran 3: 159).

Trust in Allah by constantly remembering him throughout your day. When you
Sleep to sleep, remember that sleep is death. This is why one of the recommended supplications before going to sleep is “with your name (of Allah) I die and become alive”.

12. Connect with other human beings

You’re not alone. Muslims are not alone. We do not suffer in silence. There are millions of good people who are not Muslim and have a beautiful heart and mind. These are individuals who have supported us, individually and collectively, after 9/11, by watching us and making sure we are safe. These are individuals and organizations who spoke out in defense of Muslims when we were victims of harassment and discrimination.

We must think of them, talk to them, communicate with them and pray for them. Through our relationships, we will break the chain of isolation that leads to depression and anxiety.

13. Compare your dining table with that of those who do not have as much as you

The prophet said: Whenever you see someone better than you in wealth, face, or figure, you should look at someone who is inferior to you (so that you may thank Allah for his blessings) (Bukhari, Muslim).

The next time you sit down to eat, look carefully at the table. Discover the choice of food, quality, taste, quantity, then think of the millions of others who do not even have half. The hadeeth of the prophet reminds us so that we may appreciate and thank God for all that we have.

Remember also that the prophet only encouraged us to compare ourselves to others in two ways: in our knowledge of Islam and our level of belief in God (Deen). In these two areas, we should compare ourselves to those who have more than we do.

14. Say it loud: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar: Takbirat and Adhan

Find a corner of the lake, get out in the desert or even get on your lawn at home and call the Adhan with all your heart. While driving, instead of listening to the same information again and again, say Allahu Akbar as loudly as you can or as gently as you want, depending on your mood. A year ago, I remember calling Adhan on a shoreline of Lake Michigan in Chicago after sunset, as the water ran down my lap. I called him for myself. No one else would accept the waves after the water waves with their symphony. It was relaxing and meaningful. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

15. Praying in congregation (Jamat)

Pray with other people instead of being alone. If you can not pray the five prayers in the congregation, find at least one or two prayers that you can pray with others. If you are away, establish Jamat in your own family. At the time of the Prophet, even though Muslims were subjected to great persecution, including beatings, they sometimes met on the side of a mountain or valley and tried to pray together. It’s a great morale booster.

16. How is your Dua of Imam?

Does the Imam of your local mosque do Dua silently or loudly? Ask him to implore the whole congregation. Suggest Duas to do. Ask him to do Dua for other people.

17. Work for the unity of Muslims

Gathering Muslims will not only help Muslims, but will also encourage you to focus your energies on something constructive, as opposed to zeroing and constantly fearing the hardships you are experiencing.

Invite Muslims from other ethnic groups to your office. Visit masjids other than yours in your city. When you meet a Muslim leader, after thanking him for his efforts, ask him what he is doing for Muslim unity. Ask the imams to do this to Dua. These are just small ways to help and help the Muslim community.

18. Sleep like the prophet was sleeping

End your day on a positive note. Do the Wudu, then think about your day. Thank you to Allah for all the good things you have done, like Zikr and Salat. Ask yourself what you did today to bring humanity together and what you did to help Muslims become servants of humanity. For all that is positive, say Alhamdu lillah (Praise be to Allah). For all that is negative, say Astaghfirullah wa atoobo ilayk (I seek the forgiveness of Allah and I turn to you [Allah]). Recite the last two chapters of the Quran by reflecting and praying when you turn on the right side with your hand below your right cheek, the way the prophet slept. Then close your day with the name of Allah on your tongue. Insha Allah, you will have a good night’s rest.

19. Start the day on a positive note

Get up early. Stand up to thank God for giving you another day. Alhamdu lillahil lazi ahyana bada my amatana, wa ilaihin Nushoor (Praise be to Allah who gave us life after death and to Him will return). Invest in an audio-driven alarm clock to listen to the melody of the Qur’an. Or let the happy notes of Dawud Wharnsby put you in a good mood. Sing if you want. Expand your to-do list for the day if you have not done it the day before. Start with the name of Allah, whose name can do nothing in heaven or earth. He is the tallest and the tallest.

(Bismillahillazi the yazurru ma ismihi shaiun wire arze wa the fis samae, wahuwal Alee ul Azeem). The prophet said it after each prayer of Fajr and Maghrib.

20. Avoid overexposure of the media: pass information to books

Do not spend too much time watching news on radio, television or the Internet. Spend more time reading good books and magazines. When you listen to the steady stream of bad news, especially concerning Muslims these days, you feel not only depressed but helpless. Reduce time spent on the media to reduce stress and anxiety. It’s important to know what’s going on, but not to the point of ruining your day or your mood. (Similarly, when you are in a bad mood, avoid wallowing and listening to sad songs)

21. Pray for others to heal themselves.

The prophet was always concerned about other peoples, Muslims and non-Muslims, and prayed regularly for them. Praying for others connects you with them and helps you understand their suffering. This in itself has a healing component. The Prophet said that praying for someone who is not present increases love.

22. Make the Koran your partner

Reading and listening to the Qur’an will help refresh our hearts and minds. Recite it aloud or low. Listen to him in the car. When you pray Nafl or additional prayers, pick them up and use them to recite parts of the Qur’an that you do not know well. To connect to the Qur’an means to connect to God. Let it be a way to heal your heart of stress and worry. Invest in different recordings of the Qur’an and their translations.

“O humanity! An order from your Lord has come to us and a remedy for all evil in the hearts of men – and for those who believe, a guide and a mercy” (Quran 10:57).

23. to be grateful to Allah

“If you are grateful, I will give you more” (Quran 14: 7).

Counting our blessings not only helps us to be thankful for what we have, but also reminds us that we are far better off than millions of others, whether in terms of health, family, financial status or other aspects of our life. life. And being thankful for all that we have helps us to maintain a positive attitude to the concerns and challenges we face almost daily.

24. Ideals: ONE STEP AT A TIME

Ideals are wonderful things to pursue. But do this gradually. Think, prioritize, plan and move forward. One step after another.

25. EFFORTS not Count Results in the eyes of Allah

Our success depends on our sincere efforts to the best of our abilities. It is the mercy of Allah that he does not require results, Alhamdu lillah. He is happy if he finds us to make our best sincere effort. Thank you Allah!
