    The Relief After Hardship (OP)


    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Some years ago, a certain `Aalim requested me to translate a very beneficial Kitaab of Imaam as-Suyooti, named "al-Araju fil-Faraji" into the English language. The Kitaab itself is in Arabic, and in fact, it is a commentary of a Kitaab written quite a while before by Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa, who had named his Kitaab: "Al-Faraju ba`dash Shiddah" (The Relief After Hardship).

    This Kitaab itself is written as a kind of "Tasliyah" (consolation), you could say. It provides an abundance of Ahaadeeth, Du`aas, even poetry, and the subject is about giving the Mu'min hope; increasing his Tawakkul in Allaah Ta`aalaa; assisting him in having Sabr and Shukr; inspiring him; motivating him; freeing him from depression, anxiety, worries and sorrows, etc.

    The reason this particular `Aalim had suggested I translate the Kitaab is because he said that, in these times, depression and anxiety have become very common, even among the Muslims (which should never be the case), and so he suggested that this Kitaab be translated which can act - In Shaa Allaah - as a kind of comfort for those who read it. That, after reading it, Allaah Ta`aalaa will remove all of their sorrows, grief and worries and replace it with happiness, Aameen. That was the intention of the respected authors, namely, Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa رحمة الله عليه, and later on, Imaam as-Suyooti رحمة الله عليه.

    It was only recently, though, that I decided to start with the translation of this Kitaab, and Allaah Ta`aalaa granted me the Tawfeeq to begin, Alhamdulillaah. The translation is still in process. What I will do in this thread, In Shaa Allaah, is that, every time a new page is translated, I will post it here. The original Arabic Kitaab is only 86 pages.

    May Allaah Ta`aalaa make it a means of benefit to myself first of all and to all those who read it, Aameen.

    For today, I will post what has been translated thus far.

    Ibn Bashkuwaal narrates with his chain of narrators leading up to Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-`Attaar, from his father, who said: We had a neighbour who was imprisoned, and remained in prison for 20 years, and he despaired of ever again seeing his family. He said: "One night, while I was thinking about those of my children that I had left behind and crying, suddenly a bird descended above the wall of the prison, making this Du`aa, so I learnt it from him and thereafter called upon Allaah Ta`aalaa with it for three nights consecutively, after which I slept, and when I woke up, I was in my city, above the roof of my house. I then went to my family, and they were pleased to see me after first being afraid of me (i.e. when they first saw me). That year, I performed Hajj, and while I was performing Tawaaf and calling (upon Allaah Ta`aalaa) with this Du`aa, suddenly there was an old man who struck his hand upon mine and said to me: "From where did you get this Du`aa? For verily, this Du`aa is not made except by a bird in the lands of the Romans, connected to the winds." I told him my story, about how I had been a prison in the Roman lands, and I learnt this Du`aa from a bird, and he said: "You have spoken the truth."

    I asked the old man about his name, and he said: "I am al-Khidhr."

    And this is the Du`aa:

    اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ يَامَنْ لَا تَرَاهُ الْعُيُوْنُ, وَلَا تُخَالِطُهُ الظُنُوْنُ, وَلَا يَصِفُهُ الوَاصِفُوْنَ, وَلَا تُغَيِّرُهُ الْحَوَادِثُ وَلَا الدُهُوْرُ, يَعْلَمُ مَثَاقِيْلَ الْجِبَالِ وَمَكَايِيْلَ البِحَارِ, وَعَدَدَ قَطْرِ الْأَمْطَارِ, وَعَدَدَ وَرَقِ الْأَشْجَارِ, وَعَدَدَ مَا يُظْلِمُ عَلَيْهِ اللَيْلُ وَيُشْرِقُ عَلَيْهِ النَهَارُ, وَلَا تُوَارِيْ مِنْهُ سَمَاءٌ سَمَاءً, وَلَا أَرْضٌ أَرْضاً, وَلَا جَبَلٌ إِلَّا يَعْلَمُ مَا فِيْ وَعْرِهِ, وَلَا بَحْرٌ إَلَّا يَعْلَمُ مَا فِيْ قَعْرِهِ, اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ خَيْرَ عَمَلِيْ خَوَاتِمَهُ, وَخَيْرَ أَيَّامِيْ يَوْمَ أَلْقَاكَ فِيْهِ, إِنَّكَ عَلْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ, اللهُمَّ مَنْ عَادَانِيْ فَعَادِهِ وَمَنْ كَادَنِيْ فَكِدْهُ, وَمَنْ بَغَى عَلَيَّ بِهَلَكَةٍ فَأَهْلِكْهُ, وَمَنْ نَصَبَ لِيْ فَخَّهُ فَخُذْهُ, وَأَطْفِ عَنِّيْ نَارَ مَنْ أَشَبَّ إِلَيَّ نَارَهُ, وَاكْفِنِيْ هَمَّ مَنْ أَدْخَلَ عَلَيَّ هَمَّهُ, وَأَدْخِلْنِيْ فِيْ دِرْعِكَ الْحَصِيْنَةِ, وَاسْتُرْنِيْ بِسِتْرِكَ الوَاقِيْ, يَامَنْ كَفَانِيْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ أَكْفِنِيْ مَا أَهَمَّنِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِ الدُنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ وَصَدِّقْ قَوْلِيْ وَفِعْلِيْ بِالتَّحْقِيْقِ يَاشَفِيْقُ يَارَفِيْقُ, فَرِّجْ عَنِّيْ كُلَّ ضِيْقٍ, وَلَا تَحَمِّلْنِيْ مَا لَا أُطِيْقُ, أَنْتَ إِلَهِي الْحَقُّ الْحَقِيْقُ, يَامُشْرِقَ الْبُرْهَانِ, يَاقَوِيَّ الْأَرْكَانِ, يَامَنْ رَحْمَتُهُ فِيْ كُلِّ مَكَانٍ, وَفِيْ هَذَا الْمَكَانِ, يَامَنْ لَا يَخْلُوْ مِنْهُ مَكَانٌ, أُحْرُسْنِيْ بِعَيْنِكَ الَّتِيْ لَا تَنَامُ, وَاكْفِنِيْ بِرُكْنِكَ الَّذِيْ لَا يُرَامُ, إِنَّهُ قَدْ تَيَقَّنَ قَلْبِيْ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ, وَأَنِّيْ لَا أُهْلِكُ وَأَنْتَ مَعِيْ يَا رَجَائِيْ, فَارْحَمْنِيْ بِقُدْرَتِكَ عَلَيَّ يَاعَظِيْماً يُرْجَى لِكُلِّ عَظِيْمٍ, يَاعَلِيْمُ يَاحَلِيْمُ أَنْتَ بِحَاجَتِيْ عَلِيْمٌ وَعَلَى خَلَاصِيْ قَدِيْرٌ, وَهُوَ عَلَيْكَ يَسِيْرٌ, فَامْنُنْ عَلَيَّ بِقَضَائِهَا, يَا أَكْرَمَ الْأَكْرَمِيْنَ وَيَا أَجْوَدَ الْأَجْوَدِيْنَ, وَيَا أَسْرَعَ الْحَاسِبِيْنَ, يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ, إِرْحَمْنِيْ وَارْحَمْ جَمِيْعَ الْمُذْنِبِيْنَ مِنْ أُمَّةِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ, إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ. اللهُمَّ اسْتَجِبْ لَنَا كَمَا اسْتَجَبْتَ لَهُمْ بِرَحْمَتِكَ, وَعَجِّلْ عَلَيْنَا بِرَفَجٍ مِّنْ عِنْدِكَ, بِجُوْدِكَ وَكَرَمِكَ, وَارْتِفَاعِكَ فِيْ عُلُوِّ سَمَائِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَاحِمِيْنَ, إِنَّكَ عَلَىْ مَا تَشَاءُ قَدِيْرٌ, وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ خَاتَمِ النَّبِيِّيْنَ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ أَجْمَعِيْنَ

    (O Allaah, I ask You, O One Who is not seen by the eyes (of His creation), and with Whom the thoughts (of His creation) cannot mix, and Whom the describers cannot describe. The One Who does not change with happenings nor with time. He knows the weight of the mountains and the measurements of the seas. He knows the number of drops of rain, the number of leaves on all trees, the number of everything over which the night darkens and the day brightens. No sky covers any sky from Him, nor any earth covers any earth. There is no mountain except that He knows what is in inside its unevenness, nor any sea except that He knows what is in its depth. O Allaah, I ask that You make the best of my deeds the last of them, and the best of my days the day in which I meet You. Indeed, You have power over all things. O Allaah, whosoever has enmity towards me, have enmity towards him; whosoever plans against me, plan against him; whosoever desires to destroy me, destroy him; whosoever lays a trap for me, seize him; whososever lights a fire against me (i.e. to harm me), extinguish it. Suffice me the worry of those who enters his worry upon me. Enter me into Your impenetrable armour. Cover me with Your protective covering. O One Who suffices me from everything, suffice me against that which worries me from the affairs of the Dunyaa and the Aakhirah, and let my words and deeds be true and come true. O Most Kind and Most Compassionate, grant me relief from every constriction, and do not place upon me what I cannot bear. You are My Ilaah, the All-Truth. O One Whose evidence is most clear and Whose support is most strong. O One Whose Mercy is in every place, and in this place. O One Who, there is no place empty of Him, safeguard me with Your Eyes which do not sleep, and suffice me with Your Support which does not depart. My heart has conviction that there is no Ilaah except You, and that I will never be destroyed while You are with me, O One in Whom I have placed my hope. Have mercy upon me with Your Power over me, O One Who is Most Great Whose (Help) is sought for every great thing. O Most Knowing, O Most Tolerant, You are All-Knowing regarding my needs, and are All Powerful over removing me (from all difficulties), and it is very easy upon You, so bestow (Your Bounty) upon me by fulfilling (my needs), O Most Noble of all those who are noble, O Most Generous of all those who show generosity, O Most Swift of all those who take to account, O Rabb of all that exists, have mercy upon me and upon all of the sinners from the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, for verily You are All-Powerful over all things. O Allaah, accept our (Du`aas) as You had accepted theirs, and grant us swift relief from You, by Your Generosity and by Your Nobility, and by Your Loftiness in the loftiness of Your Heaven, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy. You are All-Powerful over whatever You desire. May Allaah send salutations upon Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets, and upon all of his family and companions.)

    A portion of this Du`aa has also been narrated by Imaam at-Tabaraani, from Hadhrat Anas رضي الله عنه, that Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم passed by a Bedouin who was performing Salaah, and in his Salaah he was making the following Du`aa:

    يَامَنْ لَا تَرَاهُ الْعُيُوْنُ, وَلَا تُخَالِطُهُ الظُنُوْنُ, وَلَا يَصِفُهُ الوَاصِفُوْنَ, وَلَا تُغَيِّرُهُ الْحَوَادِثُ وَلَا الدُهُوْرُ, يَعْلَمُ مَثَاقِيْلَ الْجِبَالِ وَمَكَايِيْلَ البِحَارِ, وَعَدَدَ قَطْرِ الْأَمْطَارِ, وَعَدَدَ وَرَقِ الْأَشْجَارِ, وَعَدَدَ مَا يُظْلِمُ عَلَيْهِ اللَيْلُ وَيُشْرِقُ عَلَيْهِ النَهَارُ, وَلَا تُوَارِيْ مِنْهُ سَمَاءٌ سَمَاءً, وَلَا أَرْضٌ أَرْضاً, وَلَا جَبَلٌ إِلَّا يَعْلَمُ مَا فِيْ وَعْرِهِ, وَلَا بَحْرٌ إَلَّا يَعْلَمُ مَا فِيْ قَعْرِهِ, اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ خَيْرَ عَمَلِيْ خَوَاتِمَهُ, وَخَيْرَ أَيَّامِيْ يَوْمَ أَلْقَاكَ فِيْهِ

    Yaa Man Laa Taraahul `Uyoon, wa laa Tukhaalituhuzh Zhunoon, wa laa Yasifuhul Waasifoon, wa laa Tughayyiruhul Hawaadithu wa lad Duhoor, Ya`lamu Mathaaqeelal Jibaali wa Makaayeelal Bihaar, wa `Adada Qatril Amtaar, wa `Adada Waraqil Ashjaar, wa `Adada laa Yuzhlimu `Alayhil Laylu wa Yushriqu `Alayhin Nahaar, wa laa Tuwaaree minhu Samaa'un Samaa'aa, wa laa Ardhun Ardhaa, wa laa Jabalun illaa Ya`lamu laa fee Wa`rih, wa laa Bahrun illaa Ya`lamu maa fee Qa`rih. Allaahummaa innee As'aluka an Taj`ala Khayra `Amalee Khawaatimahu, wa Khayra Ayyaamee Yowma Alqaaka feeh.

    (O One Who is not seen by the eyes (of His creation), and with Whom the thoughts (of His creation) cannot mix, and Whom the describers cannot describe. The One Who does not change with happenings or with time. He knows the weight of the mountains and the measurements of the seas. He knows the number of drops of rain, the number of leaves on all trees, the number of everything over which the night darkens and the day brightens. No sky covers any sky from Him, nor does any earth cover any earth. There is no mountain except that He knows what is inside its unevenness, and there is no sea except that He knows what is in its depth. O Allaah, I ask that You make the best of my deeds the last of them, and the best of my days the day in which I meet You.)

    So Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم appointed a man over this Bedouin, saying to him: "When he has completed his Salaah, then come to me with him." So once he had completed his Salaah, he came, and Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم had been gifted some gold, so when the Bedouin came, he gave the gold to him as a gift. The Bedouin asked: "Is this because of the family ties between us and you, Yaa Rasoolallaah?" He said: "Family ties have their right, but I gave you the gold because of your beautiful praise of Allaah Ta`aalaa."

    Ibn Bashkuwaal narrates in "Kitaab al-Mustagheetheen Billaah" from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak, who said: "I went out in Jihaad and with me was a horse. While I was on the road, the horse fell down. A man passed by me whose face was good-looking and who had a pleasant scent. He said to me: "Do you wish to get on the horse?" I said: "Yes." So he placed his hand on the forehead of the horse until it ended by the back of the horse, and he said (this Du`aa):

    أَقْسَمْتُ عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا الْعِلَّة بِعِزَّةِ اللهِ, وَبِعَظَمَةِ عَظَمَةِ اللهِ, وَبِجَلَالِ جَلَالِ اللهِ, وَبِقُدْرَةِ قُدْرَةِ اللهِ, وَبِسُلْطَانِ سُلْطَانِ اللهِ, وَبِلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ, وَبِمَا جَرَى بِهِ الْقَلَمُ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللهِ, وَبِلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ إِلّا انْصَرَفْتِ

    Aqsamtu `Alayki Ayyatuhal `illah, bi-`Izzatillaah, wa-bi `Azhamati `Azhamatillaah, wa bi-Jalaali Jalaalillaah, wa bi-Qudrati Qudratillaah, wa bi-Sultaani Sultaanillaah, wa bi-Laa Ilaaha Illallaah, wa bimaa Jaraa bihil Qalamu min `Indillaah, wa bi-Laa Howla wa Laa Quwwata illaa Billaah, illansaraft.

    "O sickness, I ask you by the Might of Allaah, by the Honour of the Honour of Allaah, by the Majesty of the Majesty of Allaah, by the Power of the Power of Allaah, by the Authority of the Authority of Allaah; (I ask you) by Laa Ilaaha Illallaah; (I ask you) by whatever The Pen has written with Allaah (i.e. by the Command of Allaah), and (I ask you) by Laa Howla wa Laa Quwwata illaa Billaah, to leave."

    The horse began to shake, so the man took hold of my saddle and said, "Get on." So I got on the horse and met up with my companions. When it was early morning of the following day, and the enemy appeared, suddenly, he (this man) was in front of us. I asked him: "Are you not my companion of yesterday?" He said: "Most certainly." I said: "I ask you by Allaah: who are you?" So he sprang up and the earth beneath him shook and turned into greenery, and he was Khidhr عليه السلام.

    Imaam ibn al-Mubaarak said: "So I never said these words over any ailing person except that he was cured with the Permission of Allaah."

    Imaam Abu Nu`aym narrates in "al-Hilyah" from Mis`ar, that a man went out to sea (on a ship), but the ship broke and he ended up on an island. He remained there for three days and three nights, not seeing anyone and not eating or drinking. He began to imagine (things), so he said (this verse of poetry):

    إذا شاب الغراب أتيت أهلي وصار القار كاللبن الحليب

    "When the crow becomes white-haired, I will return to my family, and when tar turns into fresh milk."

    Someone he could not see responded (with this verse of poetry):

    عسى الكرب الذي أمسيت فيه يكون وراءه فرج قريب

    "Perhaps the hardship you have entered into by night, there will be, after it, a relief near at hand."

    So he looked, and a ship had approached, so he called out to them, and they (rescued) him, and he acquired a lot of good.

    Imaam ibn `Asaakir narrates from Muhammad ibn `Umar, who said: al-Hajjaaj ordered that a certain prisoner be brought (before him), and when the prisoner was brought, he gave the order that his neck should be struck. So, the prisoner said: "O Ameer, give me respite until tomorrow." Hajjaaj said to him: "Woe to you! What relief will there be for you in delaying for a day?" Nevertheless, he ordered that he be returned to the prison. (As he was returning to the prison,) Hajjaaj heard (him) reciting the following verse of poetry:

    عسى فرج يأتي به الله إنه له كلّ يوم في خليقته أمر

    "Perhaps a relief will come from Allaah; every day, He causes a (new) affair to come to pass among His creation."

    (When Hajjaaj heard this), he said: "By Allaah, he did not take this except from the Qur'aan.

    كُلَّ يَوْمٍ هُوَ فِيْ شَأْنٍ

    {"Every day, He has a matter to bring forth (i.e. such as giving life to some, giving death to others, giving bounties to some, removing them from others, raising some, lowering others)..."} [Soorah ar-Rahmaan, 55:29]

    Thus, Hajjaaj ordered that he be set free.

    Imaam ibn `Asaakir narrates from Sa`eed ibn Junaadah that he said: "A legal case was presented to me that was very difficult upon me, and it was the most I had ever struggled (with any case), so I was sitting and looking through my notebooks when the following verse of poetry passed me:

    يستصعب الأمر أحياناً بصاحبه وربّ مستصعِب قد سهّل الله

    "At times, a matter becomes difficult upon its companion; but how many a difficulty has been eased by Allaah."

    So Allaah granted me relief (from this problem).

    Abu `Ali at-Tanookhi narrates in his Kitaab, "al-Faraju ba`dash Shiddah", and ibn an-Najjaar narrates from Ayyoob ibn al-`Abbaas ibn al-Hasan, the one whose father was the Wazeer (vizier) of al-Muktafee (the Abbasid Khaleefah). He said: Abu `Ali ibn Hammaam narated to us with an Isnaad which I did not memorise, from a Bedouin, that he (the Bedouin) complained to (Hadhrat) `Ali ibn Abi Taalib (رضي الله عنه) about difficulties that had afflicted him, and that his condition had changed to one of poverty, and that he had many dependants. So he said to him: "Perform Istighfaar (seek forgiveness from Allaah) in abundance, for indeed, Allaah `Azza wa Jall says:

    فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا

    يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِدْرَارًا

    وَيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ أَنْهَارًا

    {"I (i.e. Nooh عليه السلام) said to them: 'Ask forgiveness from your Rabb; indeed, He is Most Forgiving. He will send down the rain upon you in abundance and give you an increase in wealth and children, and He will make for you gardens and He will make for you rivers."} [Soorah Nooh, 71:10-12]

    The man returned to him and said: "O Ameer al-Mu'mineen, I have made Istighfaar (sought forgiveness from) Allaah in abundance, and I do not see a relief from what I am in." He (Hadhrat `Ali رضي الله عنه) said to him: "Perhaps you are not performing Istighfaar in a goodly way." He said: "Teach me (how to do so)." He said: "Purify your intention, and obey your Rabb (i.e. carry out all obligatory duties and abstain from sins including those repented from), and say:

    اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْبٍ قَوِيَ عَلَيْهِ بَدَنِيْ بِعَافِيَتِكَ, أَوْ نَالَتْهُ قُدْرَتِيْ بِفَضْلِ نِعْمَتِكَ, أَوْ بَسَطْتُ إِلَيْهِ يَدِيْ بِسَابِغِ رِزْقِكَ, أَوِ اتَّكَلْتُ فِيْهِ عِنْدَ خَوْفِيْ مِنْهُ عَلَى أَمَانِكَ أَوْ وَثِقْتُ فِيْهِ بِحِلْمِكَ, أَوْ عَوَّلْتُ فِيْهِ عَلَى كَرِيْمِ عَفْوِكَ, اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْبٍ خُنْتُ فِيْهِ أَمَانَتِيْ, أَوْ بَخَسْتُ فِيْهِ نَفْسِيْ, أَوْ قَدّمْتُ فِيْهِ لَذَّتِيْ أَوْ آثَرْتُ فِيْهِ شَهْوَتِيْ, أَوْ سَعَيْتُ فِيْهِ لِغَيْرِيْ, أَوِ اسْتَغْوَيْتُ فِيْهِ مَنْ تَبِعَنِيْ, أَوْ غَلَبْتُ فِيْهِ بِفَضْلِ حِيْلَتِيْ, أَوْ أَحَلْتُ فِيْهِ عَلَيْكَ مَوْلَايَ فَلَمْ تَغْلِبْنِيْ إِذْ كُنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ كَارِهاً لِمَعْصِيَتِيْ, لَكِنْ سَبَقَ عِلْمُكَ فِيَّ بِاخْتِيَارِيْ وَاسْتِعْمَالِيْ مُرَادِيْ وَإِيْثَارِيْ, فَحَلِمْتَ عِنِّيْ فَلَمْ تُدْخِلْنِيْ فِيْهِ جَبْراً, وَلَمْ تَحْمِلْنِيْ عَلَيْهِ قَهْراً, وَلَمْ تَظْلِمْنِيْ شَيْئاً يَاأَرْحَمَ الرَاحِمِيْن, يَاصَاحِبِيْ عِنْدَ شِدَّتِيْ, يَامُؤْنِسِيْ فِيْ وَحْدَتِيْ, يَاحَافِظِيْ فِيْ غُرْبَتِيْ, يَاوَلِيِّيْ فِيْ نِعْمَتِيْ, يَاكَاشِفَ كُرْبَتِيْ, يَمُسْتَمِعَ دَعْوَتِيْ, يَارَاحِمَ عَبْرَتِيْ, يَامُقِيْلَ عَثْرَتِيْ, يَاإِلَهِيْ بِالتَحْقِيْقِ, يَارُكْنِيْ الْوَثِيْقُ, يَاجَارِيْ الَّصِيْقُ, يَامَوْلَايَ الشَّفِيْقُ, يَارَبَّ الْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيْقِ, أَخْرِجْنِيْ مِنْ حَلَقِ الْمَضِيْقِ, إِلَى سَعَةِ الطَرِيْقِ, وَفَرَجٍ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ قَرِيْبٌ وَثِيْقٌ, وَاكْشِفْ عَنِّيْ كُلَّ شِدَّةٍ وَضِيْقٍ, وَاكْفِنِيْ مَا أُطِيْقُ وَمَا لَا أُطِيْقُ. اللهُمَّ فَرِّجْ عَنِّيْ كُلَّ هَمٍّ وَغَمٍّ, وَأَخْرِجْنِيْ مِنْ كُلِّ حُزْنٍ وَكَرْبٍ, يَافَارِجَ الْهَمِّ, وَيَاكَاشِفَ الغَمِّ, وَيَا مُنْزِلَ الْقَطْرِ, وَيَامُجِيْبَ دَعْوَةِ الْمُضْطَرِّ, يَارَحْمَنَ الدُنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ وَرَحِيْمَهُمَا, صَلِّ عَلَى خِيْرَتِكَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ مُحَمَّدٍ النَبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَآلِهِ الطَيِّبِيْنَ الطَاهِرِيْنَ, وَفَرِّجْ عَنِّيْ مَا قَدْ ضَاقَ بِهِ صَدْرِيْ, وَعِيْلَ مَعَهُ صَبْرِيْ, وَقَلَّتْ فِيْهِ حِيْلَتِيْ, وَضَعُفَتْ لَهُ قُوَّتِيْ, يَاكَاشِفَ كُلَّ ضُرٍّ وَبَلِيَّةٍ, وَيَا عَالِمَ كُلَّ سِرٍّ وَخَفِيَّةٍ, يَاأَرْحَمَ الرَاحِمِيْنَ

    O Allaah, I seek Your Forgiveness for every sin which my body was strong enough to commit through Your keeping it safe, or I was able to do it because of the bounty of Your Favour (upon me), or I stretched my hand towards it because of the downpour of Your Rizq (sustenance) upon me, or I relied upon it at the time of my fearing from it upon Your Safety (which you have granted me), or I became confident (i.e. in committing the sin) because of Your Tolerance, or I resolved upon (doing it) because of the generosity of Your Pardoning. O Allaah, I seek forgiveness from you from every sin (I committed) in which I betrayed my trust, or lowered myself, or put forward my pleasures or preferred my desires, or I committed for the sake of someone else, or I misguided thereby whosoever follows me, or I was successful in by virtue of my plot, or I committed it and - O my Master - You did not overpower me (i.e. did not destroy me) because of my action, even though You - Glory be unto You - disliked my disobedience, but in Your Knowledge, You knew that I would choose (it) and that I would use my choice, so You were tolerant concerning me and did not force me into doing it, and did not cause me to do it by subjugating me, and did not wrong me in any way, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy. O my Companion at the time when things are going hard for me; O the One Who consoles me when I am lonely; O Protector of me when I am alone as a stranger; O Safeguarder of me in the favours (I enjoy); O Remover of my harms; O Hearer of my supplications; O One Who has mercy upon my tears; O One Who forgives me when I fall; O my true Ilaah; O my most powerful Support; O my closest Neighbour; O my Kindest Master; O Rabb of the Ancient House: take me out from constraint into the vastness of the path, and into a strong relief from You that is near at hand, and remove from me every difficulty and hardship, and suffice me for that which I am capable of and for that which I am not capable of. O Allaah, grant me relief from every worry and sadness, and take me out from every grief and difficulty. O Reliever from worry, O Remover of grief, O Sender of the rain, O Answerer of the call of the oppressed one, O Rahmaan of the Dunyaa and the Aakhirah, and the Raheem of both of them, send salutations upon the best from Your creation, Muhammad the Nabi, Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam, and upon his pure family, and grant me relief from that which has caused my chest to tigthen, and my patience to wane, and my plan to lessen, and my power to weaken. O Remover of every harm and affliction, O Knower of every secret and hidden thing, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

    {"And I entrust my affair to Allaah; indeed, Allaah is All-Seeing over His slaves."}

    {"And my capability is only with Allaah. Upon Him I place my trust and He is the Rabb of the Majestic Throne."}

    The Bedouin said: "So I sought forgiveness from Allaah Ta`aalaa with that Istighfaar a number of times, so Allaah removed from me the sorrow and grief, and made my sustenance vast for me, and removed the trial from me.”

    Imaam ibn an-Najjaar narrates from al-Hasan ibn Ahmad ibn as-Saydalaani who said: My mother informed me that once, when she was pregnant, she said: I asked Allaah to grant me relief, so I saw Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم in a dream, and he said to me: O Umm Habeeb, say:

    يَامُسَهِّلَ الشَدِيْدِ, وَيَا مُلِيْنَ الْحَدِيْدِ, وَيَا مُنْجِزَ الْوَعِيْدِ, وَيَا مَنْ هُوَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ فِيْ أَمْرٍ جَدِيْدٍ, أَخْرِجْنِيْ مِنْ حَلَقِ الْمَضِيْقِ, إَلَى أَوْسَعِ الطَرِيْقِ, بِكَ أَدْفَعُ مَا لَا أَطِيْقُ, وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيْمِ

    Yaa Musahhil-ash-Shadeed, wa Yaa Muleen-al-Hadeed, wa Yaa Munjizal Wa`eed, wa Yaa Man Huwa Kulla Yowmin fee Amrin Jadeed, Akhrijnee min Halaqil Madheeq, ilaa Awsa`it Tareeq, bika Adfa`u maa laa Ateeq, wa laa Howla wa laa Quwwata illaa Billaahil `Aliyyil `Azheem.

    "O Easer of harships, O Softener of iron, O Fulifller of threats, O One Who everyday is in a new matter; take me out from constraint into the most spacious of paths. By You I repel that which I am incapable of, and there is no power or might except with Allaah, the Most High and the Most Great."

    Imaam al-Haakim narrates in the dictionary of his Shaykhs, and ibn an-Najjaar narrates from Abu-l Mundhir ibn Hishaam ibn Muhammad, from his father, who said: Once, (Hadhrat) Hasan ibn `Ali رضي الله عنه faced some (financial) constraint. He used to get 100,000 every year, but (Hadhrat) Mu`aawiyah (رضي الله عنه) kept it one year, so he faced a severe (financial) difficulty. He said: So I called for a pot of ink in order to write to (Hadhrat) Mu`aawiyah (رضي الله عنه) to remind him of myself. However, I hesitated (in sending the letter), and then saw Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم in a dream. He said to me: "How are you, O Hasan?" I said: "I am well, my beloved father." And I complained to him about the delay in the money, so he said: "Did you call for a pot of ink to write to a creation like yourself, reminding him of that?" I said: "Yes, Yaa Rasoolallaah. So how should I do?" He said: Say:

    اللهُمَّ اقْذِفْ فِيْ قَلْبِيْ رَجَاءَكَ, وَاقْطَعْ رَجَائِيْ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ حَتَّى لَا أَرْجُوَ أَحَداً غَيْرَكَ, اللهُمَّ وَمَا ضَعُفَتْ عَنْهُ قُوَّتِيْ وَقَصُرَ عَنْهُ أَمَلِيْ وَلَمْ تَنْتَهِ إِلَيْهِ رَغْبَتِيْ, وَلَمْ تَبْلُغْهُ مَسْأَلَتِيْ, وَلَمْ يَجْرِ عَلَى لِسَانِيْ مِمَّا أَعْطَيْتَ أَحَداً مِّنَ الْأَوَّلِيْنَ وَالْآخِرِيْنَ مِنَ الْيَقِيْنِ فَخُصَّنِيْ بِهِ يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ.

    Allaahummaq-dhif fee Qalbee Rajaa'aka Waqta` Rajaa'ee `amman Siwaaka Hattaa laa Arjuwa Ahadan Ghayrak. Allaahumma wa maa Dha`ufat `anhu Quwwatee, wa Qasura `anhu Amalee wa lam Tantahi ilayhi Raghbatee, wa lam Tablugh-hu Mas'alatee, wa lam Yajri `alaa Lisaanee mimmaa A`tayta Ahadam minal Awwaleen wal Aakhireen minal Yaqeeni fa-Khussanee bihee Yaa Rabbal `Aalameen.

    "O Allaah, cast Your Hope in my heart and cut off my hope from everyone besides You, so that I do not hope from anyone except You. O Allaah, and whatever my power was too weak for, or my aspirations were too low for, or my desire did not reach it, or my asking did not attain it, or it never passed my tongue, from anything which You had given the first ones or the last ones from Yaqeen (conviction in You), then grant it to me, Yaa Rabb-al-`Aalameen."

    He said: By Allaah, not even a week had passed (of me saying it) but (Hadhrat) Mu`aawiyah (رضي الله عنه) sent 1,000,000 and 500,000 to me, so I said: "All praise belongs to that Allaah Who does not forget those who remember Him, and does not disappoint those who call upon Him."

    Thereafter, I saw Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم in a dream, and he said: "O Hasan, how are you?" I said: "I am well, Yaa Rasoolallaah." And I narrated my story to him. He said: "O my son, this is how it is for the one who hopes from Allaah and does not hope from the creation."

    Imaam ibn an-Najjaar narrates from Ma`roof al-Karkhi who said: Whosoever says three times, while being in a state of sorrow, Allaah will grant him relief:

    اللهُمَّ احْفَظْ أُمَّةَ مُحَمَّدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم, اللهُمَّ ارْحَمْ أُمَّةَ مُحَمَّدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم, اللهُمَّ عَافِ أُمَّةَ مُحَمَّدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم, اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ أُمَّةَ مُحَمَّدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم, اللهُمَّ فَرِّجْ عَنْ أُمَّةِ مُحَمَّدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم

    Allaahummah-fazh Ummata Muhammad Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam, Allaahummar-ham Ummata Muhammad Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam, Allaahum `Aafi Ummata Muhammad Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam, Allaahumma Aslih Ummata Muhammad Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam, Allaahuma Farrij `an Ummati Muhammad Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam.

    "O Allaah, protect the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. O Allaah, have mercy upon the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. O Allaah, protect, heal and grant safety to the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. O Allaah, rectify the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. O Allaah, grant relief to the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم."

    And Imaam ibn an-Najjaar narrates from al-Hasan ibn Turaab, who said: There was an old man with us by the name of Haytham. He was a pious slave (of Allaah). Ma'moon (the Abbasid Khaleefah) had ordered that no Amr bil-Ma`roof or Nahi `anil Munkar is to be done. So, Haytham got in a boat (and sailed to the door of Ma'moon). When he reached the door of Ma'moon, the boatman said to him, "Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen (the commander of the believers, i.e. Ma'moon) is sitting." Haytham said to him: "He's not the Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen." The man asked: "Why?" He said: "Because Allaah Ta`aalaa said to Ibraaheem (عليه السلام):

    إِنِّيْ جَاعِلُكَ لِلنَّاسِ إِمَاماً, قَالَ وَمِنْ ذُرِّيَتِيْ, قَالَ لَا يَنَالُ عَهْدِيْ الظَّالِمِيْنَ

    {"I am making you an Imaam (leader) for mankind." He asked: "And from my progeny?" He (Allaah) said: "My Covenant does not include the oppressors; wrong-doers."}

    Ma'moon heard this, so he called for him (Haytham) and said, "How have I become from the Zhaalimeen (oppressors; wrong-doers) when I cal for Salaah five times a day?" He said: "Your announcers announced: "The Dhimmah (state protection) is removed from whosoever does Amr bil-Ma`roof (Commands Good) or Nahi `anil Munkar (Forbids Evil), whereas Allaah Ta`aalaa said:

    لُعِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَلَى لِسَانِ دَاوُودَ وَعِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ ذَلِكَ بِمَا عَصَوْا وَكَانُوا يَعْتَدُونَ (78) كَانُوا لَا يَتَنَاهَوْنَ عَنْ مُنْكَرٍ فَعَلُوهُ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ

    {"Those who committed Kufr from Bani Israa'eel were cursed at the tongue of Daawood and (at the tongue of) `Eesaa ibn Maryam; that is because they disobeyed and were from the transgressors. They used to not forbid one another from the evil which they committed. Evil indeed is that which they used to do."}

    Ma'moon said: "I'm not going to kill you except with a clear proof." So he (Haytham) was imprisoned and taken to the jail. He slept there, and when he woke up, he said: "A servant entered upon me and said: O Haytham, have glad-tidings, because Allaah `Azza wa Jall has sent Salaam to you, and He says: By My Honour and My Loftiness, I will rescue you (from what you are in) and I will come between him and you. I have sent to you a gift of Words from beneath My `Arsh (Throne). Seek protection using these words at every time of difficulty, and by every Sultaan and by every Shaytaan, and snake, and scorpion, for verily they will not reach you:

    اللهُمَّ يَا مُجَلِّيَ الْعَظَائِمِ مِنَ الْأُمُوْرِ, وَيَا مُنْتَهَى هَمِّ الْمَهْمُوْمِ, وَيَا مُفَرِّجَ الْكَرْبِ الْعَظِيْمِ, وَيَا مَنْ إَذَا أَرَادَ أَمْراً فَحَسْبُهُ أَنْ يَقُوْلَ لَهُ: كُنْ فَيَكُوْنُ, أَحَاطَتْ بِيَّ الذُنُوْبُ وَأَنْتَ الْمَدْحُوْرُ لَهَا وَلِكُلِّ شَدِيْدَةٍ يَا لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ يَا لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ,


    Allaahumma Yaa Mujalliyal `Azhaa'ima minal Umoor, wa Yaa Muntahaa Hammil Mahmoom, wa Yaa Mufarrijal Karbil `Azheem, wa Yaa Man Idhaa Araada Amran Fa-Hasbuhu ay Yaqoola lahu: Kun, fa-Yakoon. Ahaatat biyyadh Dhunoob wa Antal Mad-hooru lahaa wa likulli Shadeedah, Yaa Laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta, Yaa Laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta.


    “O Allaah, the Dispeller of hardships; O One who ends the worry of the anxious one; O Granter of relief from great difficulties; O One Who, when He desires somethings, simply says to it "Be" and it is. My sins have surrounded me, and You are the One Who drives it away and drives away every harship. O One Who there is no Ilaah besides You, O One Who there is no Ilaah besides You."

    So I had not yet completed the words but already I was released."

    And Imaam al-Khateeb (al-Baghdaadi) and Imaam ibn an-Najjaar narrate from `Abu `Eesaa `Abdur Rahmaan ibn Zaadhaan who said: I was with Ahmad ibn Hanbal when a man came to him and said something to him which I did not understand, and then he said to him: "Have Sabr (patience), for indeed, help (and victory) is with Sabr." Then he said: "I heard `Affaan ibn Muslim saying: Hammaam ibn Thaabit narrated to me from Anas, from Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم, that he said: "Nasr (help and victory) is with Sabr (patience), and relief is with hardship, and verily with hardship is ease, verily with hardship is ease."

    Imaam at-Tabaraani narrates in al-Kabeer, and Imaam Abu Nu`aym, both of them narrate from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما, who said: "(One day), al-`Abbaas visited Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم at an hour which he usually didn't visit him in. It was said: "Yaa Rasoolallaah, this is your uncle, al-`Abbaas, by the door." He said: "Give him permission (to enter) for he has come with a matter (i.e. an important matter)." So when he entered, Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم asked him: "What has brought you at this hour, O uncle?" He said: "O son of my brother, I remembered (the time of) Jaahiliyyah and its Jahl (ignorance), so the Dunyaa - vast as it is - became narrow for me, so I said (to myself): "Who will grant me relief?" And I knew that no one can grant me relief except Allaah Ta`aalaa, and then you." Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "All praise is due to Allaah Who has placed this in your heart. (Do) I (not) love you?" He said: "Yes." Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم asked: (Do) I (not) give you?" He said: "Yes." Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "Then, when it is an hour wherein Salaah may be performed, (but) not after `Asr and not after the rising of the sun, (rather) in the time that is between that (i.e. other than those two times), then make a complete purification (i.e. a complete Wudhoo), then stand up for Allaah `Azza wa Jall (i.e. in Salaah), and recite Faatihatul Kitaab (the Opening of the Book, i.e. Soorah al-Faatihah), and a Soorah along with it, and if you wish, this Soorah may be from the first of the Mufassal (Soorahs) [1]. Once you have completed the Soorah, say: Sub-haanallaah, wal-Hamdu lillaah, wa Laa Ilaaha Illallaah, Wallaahu Akbar, 15 times. When you perform Rukoo`, say it 10 times. When you stand up from Rukoo`, say it 10 times. When you perform Sajdah, say it 10 times. When you get up from Sajdah, say it 10 times. When you perform Sajdah (the second time), say it 10 times. When you get up from Sajdah and are sitting (Jalsah position), say it 10 times. This makes up 75 times. Thereafter, get up and perform another Rak`ah, and do in it the same as you had done in the first, and then say it (this Dhikr) 10 times before the Tashahhud. This makes up 150. Thereafter, perform another two Rak`ats like this, making up 300. Once you have completed this, then even if your sins are like the number of stars in the sky, Allaah Ta`aalaa will wipe all of them out, and even if they are like the sand (of the desert), and even if they are like the foam of the sea. If you are able to, then perform it (this Salaah) once every day. If you can't do that, then once every Jumu`ah. If you can't do that, then once every month. If you can't do that, then once every year, for as long as you are alive."

    He said: "May Allaah grant you relief like how you have granted me relief, O son of my brother, straigthened my back (i.e. you have lifted a burden off my back)."

    Imaam Abu `Uthmaan al-Himyaree az-Zaahid said: "I have not seen anything (as effective in removing) hardships and sorrows like Salaat-ut-Tasbeeh (i.e. this Salaah described above)."


    [1] The Mufassal Soorahs, according to the Hanafi Madh-hab, are in three categories:

    1. The Tuwaal-ul-Mufassal (Lengthy ones from al-Mufassal), which is from Soorah al-Hujuraat to Soorah al-Burooj.

    2. The Awsaat-ul-Mufassal (Medium ones from al-Mufassal), which is from Soorah al-Burooj to Soorah al-Bayyinah.

    3. The Qisaar-ul-Mufassal (Short ones from al-Mufassal), which is from Soorah al-Bayyinah to Soorah an-Naas.

    The Haafizh, Abu-l Hasan `Ali ibn Hamdaan narrates in "Manaaqib ash-Shaafi`ee", from Imaam al-Muzani, who said: I heard ash-Shaafi`ee saying: "One night, Haaroon ar-Rasheed sent ar-Rabee` to me, so he read out a poem (he had written) satirizing me, and thereafter he said to me: "Respond (to this)." I asked him: "At this time, and without permission? (i.e. you enter my house without permission at a time like this.)" He said: "I have been commanded to do that." Then (he left) and I left with him. When we went to the door (of the palace of Haaroon ar-Rasheed), he said to me: "Sit." And he entered. Ar-Rasheed asked: "What did Muhammad ibn Idrees do?" He said: "I've brought him." He said: "Bring him in." So he brought me. He (Haaroon ar-Rasheed) considered me for a while, and then said: "O Muhammad, we were thoughtless with you, so go in goodness." (Then he said): "O Rabee! Send with him a bag of Dirhams (silver coins)." So when I left, ar-Rabee` asked me: "I ask you by the One Who subjugated this man for you, what did you say? Because I had presented you to him, and I saw the place of his sword from your neck (i.e. I saw that he was about to kill you.)" I said: "I heard Maalik ibn Anas رضي الله عنه saying: I heard Naafi` saying: I heard `Abdullaah ibn `Umar رضي الله عنهما saying: On the Day of Ahzaab, Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم made this Du`aa and it sufficed him, and that Du`aa is:

    اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ وَبِنُوْرِ قُدْسِكَ, وَبَرَكَةِ طَهَارَتِكَ, وَعِظَمِ جَلَالِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ طَارِقٍ إِلَّا طَارِقاً يَطْرُقُ بِخَيْرٍ, اللهُمَّ أَنْتَ غِيَاثِيْ فَبِكَ أَغُوْثُ, وَأَنْتَ عِيَاذِيْ فَبِكَ أَعُوْذُ, وَأَنْتَ مَلَاذِيْ فَبِكَ أَلُوْذُ, يَا مَنْ ذَلَّتْ لَهُ رِقَابُ الْجَبَابِرَةِ, وَخَضَعَتْ لَهُ مَقَالِيْدُ الْفَرَاعِنَةِ, أَجِرْنِيْ مِنْ خِزْيِكَ وَعُقُوْبَتِكَ, وَاحْفَظْنِيْ فِيْ لَيْلِيْ وَنَهَارِيْ وَنَوْمِيْ وَقَرَارِيْ, لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ تَعْظِيْماً لِوَجْهِكَ, وَتَكْرِيْماً لِسُبُحَاتِ عَرْشِكَ, فَاصْرِفْ عَنِّيْ شَرَّ عِبَادِكَ, وَاجْعَلْنِيْ فِيْ حِفْظِ عِنَايَتِكَ وَسُرَادِقَاتِ حِفْظِكَ, وَعُدْ عَلَيَّ بِخَيْرٍ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ

    Allaahumma Innee A`oodhu bika wa bi-Noori Qudsik, wa Barakati Tahaaratik, wa `Izhami Jalaalika min Kulli Taariqin Illaa Taariqan Yatruqu bi-Khayr. Allaahumma Anta Ghiyaathee fa-bika Aghoothu, wa Anta `Iyaadhee fa-bika A`oodhu, wa Anta Mulaadhee fa-bika Aloodhu, Yaa Man Dhallat lahu Riqaabul Jabaabirah, wa Khadha`at lahu Maqaaleedul Faraa`inah, Ajirnee min Khizyika wa `Uqoobatik, Wah-fazhnee fee Laylee wa Nahaaree wa Nowmee wa Qaraaree, Laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta Ta`zheeman li-Wajhika wa Takreeman li-Subuhaati `Arshik, Fasrif `annee Sharra `Ibaadik, Waj`alnee fee Hifzhi `Inaayatik wa Suraadiqaati Hifzhika wa `Ud `Alayya bi-Khayrin Yaa Ar-hamar Raahimeen.

    "O Allaah, I seek protection with You and with the Noor of Your Holiness, and the blessings of Your Purity, and the greatness of Your Loftiness, from every night-comer except a night-comer who brings goodness. O Allaah, You are the One I seek help from, You are the One I seek protection in, You are the One I seek refuge with. O (Allaah), to You the knees of the arrogant, tyrannical kings are brought low, To You, the governments of the Faraa`inah (sing. Fir`own) surrender. Save me from Your punishment and from being disgraced, and protect me by night and by day, while I am asleep and while I am awake. There is no Ilaah besides You, Most Honourable is Your Face, and Most Noble are the (Malaa'ikah) who make Tasbeeh around Your `Arsh (Throne), thus, repel from me the evil of Your slaves, and place me under Your care and the canopies of Your protection, and increase goodness upon me, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy."

    Imaam ad-Daylami narrates from the path of `Abdul A`laa, from Hammaad, from al-Fadhl ibn ar-Rabee`, from ash-Shaafi`ee, from Maalik, from Naafi`, from ibn `Umar, that Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم made this Du`aa on the day of (the battle of) Ahzaab.

    Imaam Abu Nu`aym narrates from al-Fadhl ibn ar-Rabee`, the chamberlain of Haaroon ar-Rasheed, who said: "(One day), I entered upon Haaron ar-Rasheed, and in front of him were swords and various types of torture (methods)." He said to me: "Sort out this Hijaazi, i.e. ash-Shaafi`ee." I said: "Indeed, to Allaah we belong and to Him we shall return. This man is gone." I went to ash-Shaafi`ee and said to him: "Respond to (the call of) Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen." He said: "I will perform two Rak`ats of Salaah (first)?" He said: "Perform them." Thereafter, he headed to the palace of ar-Rasheed. When we entered into the first hallway, ash-Shaafi`ee moved his lips (i.e. he recited something). When we entered into the second hallway, again ash-Shaafi`ee moved his lilps. Once we reached the presence of ar-Rasheed, he (Haaroon ar-Rasheed) stood up and made him (ash-Shaafi`ee) sit in his place, and all the while the confidantes of ar-Rasheed were looking at the various kinds of torture he (ar-Rasheed) had prepared for him. After some time, he gave him (i.e. ash-Shaafi`ee) permission to leave, and he said to me: "O Fadhl, send him with a bag (i.e. of coins)." So I did so. Once we were back in the hallway, I asked him: "I'm asking you by the One Who changed the anger (of ar-Rasheed) against you into pleasure, tell me what it is you recited in the face of Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen that caused him to become pleased?" He said:

    شَهِدَ اللهُ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ

    اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِنُوْرِ قُدْسِكَ, وَبَركَةِ طَهَارَتِكَ, وَبِعَظَمَةِ جَلَالِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ عَاهَةٍ وَآفَةٍ وَطَارِقِ الجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ إِلَّا طَارِقاً يَطْرُقُنِيْ بِخَيْرٍ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَاحِمِيْنَ, اللهُمَّ بِكَ مَلَاذِيْ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَلُوْذَ, وَبِكَ غِيَاثِيْ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَغُوْثَ, يَا مَنْ ذَلَّتْ لَهُ رِقَابُ الْفَرَاعِنَةِ, وَخَضَعَتْ لَهُ مَقَالِيْدُ الْجَبَابِرَةِ. اللهُمَّ ذِكْرُكَ شِعَارِيْ وَدِثَارِيْ, وَنَوْمِيْ وَقَرَارِيْ, أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ, إِضْرِبْ عَلَيَّ سُرَادِقَاتِ حِفْظِكَ, وَقِنِيْ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا رَحْمَنُ

    Shahidallaahu Annahu laa Ilaaha Illaahoo,

    Allaahumma Innee A`oodhu bi Noori Qudsik, wa Barakati Tahaaratik, wa bi `Azhamati Jalaalik, min Kulli `Aahatin wa Aafatin wa Taariqil Jinni wal Insi Illaa Taariqan Yatruqunee bi-Khayr Yaa Ar-hamar Raahimeen. Allaahumma bika Mulaadhee Qabla an Aloodha, wa bika Ghiyaathee Qabla an Aghootha. Yaa Man Dhallat lahu Riqaabul Faraa`inah, wa Khadha`at lahu Maqaaleedul Jabaabirah. Allaahumma Dhikruka Shi`aaree wa Dithaaree, wa Nawmee wa Qaraaree, Ash-hadu al laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta, Idhrib `alayya Suraadiqaati Hifzhik, wa Qinee bi-Rahmatika Yaa Rahmaan.

    {“Allaah testifies that there is no Ilaah besides Him…”}

    “O Allaah, I seek protection with the Noor of Your Holiness, and with the blessings of Your Purity, and with the greatness of Your Loftiness, and from every disability and every calamity, and from every night-comer from the Jinn and mankind except a night-comer who brings goodness, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy. O Allaah, You are the One I seek refuge with before I seek refuge; You are the One I seek help from before I seek help. O One to Whom the knees of the Faraa`inah are humbled, and to Whom the governments of the arrogant, tyrannical kings surrender. O Allaah, Your Dhikr is my slogan and my garment, and my sleep and my wakefulness. I testify that there is no Ilaah except You. Grant me the canopies of Your Protection, and save me by Your Rahmah (Mercy), O Rahmaan (Most Merciful).”

    Al-Fadhl said: "So I wrote down (this Du`aa) and I placed it in my cloak, and, ar-Rasheed used to get angry at me very often, and whenever he would get angry, I would recite it in his presence, and (his anger would change to) pleasure."

    Al-Khateeb narrates with a chain of narrators in which there are some Majaaheel (unknown narrators), from Hadhrat Anas رضي الله عنه in a Marfoo` form that he said: When the Jews gathered around `Eesaa عليه السلام, to kill him, Jibreel عليه السلام came to him and said: "Say:

    اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الْوَاحِدِ الأَحَدِ, أَدْعُوْكَ اللهُمَّ بِاسْمِكَ الصَمَدِ, أَدْعُوْكَ اللهُمَّ بِاسْمِكَ الْعَظِيْمِ الْوِتْرِ الَّذِيْ مَلَأَ الْأَرْكَانَ كُلَّهَا إِلَّا مَا فَرَّجْتَ عَنِّيْ مَا أَمْسَيْتُ فِيْهِ وَمَا أَصْبَحْتُ فِيْهِ

    Allaahumma Innee As'aluka Bismikal Waahidil Ahad, Ad`ookal-laahumma Bismikas Samad, Ad`ookal-laahumma Bismikal `Azheemil Witril-ladhee Mala'al Arkaana Kullahaa Illaa maa Farrajta `annee maa Amsaytu feehi wa maa Asbahtu feehi.

    "O Allaah, I ask You by Your Name which is One and Unique, I call upon You, O Allaah, by Your Name which is as-Samad (the Independant), I call upon You, O Allaah, by Your Greatest and Most Unique Name which fills up all corners (of existence), that You grant me relief from (the difficulties) which I am in."

    So (Nabi) `Eesaa عليه السلام made this Du`aa, and Allaah `Azza wa Jall sent Wahi (revelation) to Jibreel عليه السلام, saying, "Raise My slave up to Me."

    - 55 -

    Al-Qaasim ibn Sasaree narrates in his "Amaali" from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما that he said to Wahb ibn Munabbih: "From the books which you have read, have you found a Du`aa that is Mustajaab (accepted) and which you use at the time of difficulty?" He said: "Yes. (It is):

    اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا مَنْ يَمْلِكُ حَوَائِجَ السَائِلِيْنَ, وَيَعْلَمُ ضَمَائِرَ الصَامِتِيْنَ, فَإِنَّ لِكُلِّ مَسْأَلَةٍ مِنْكَ سَمْعاً حَاضِراً, وَجَوَاباً عَتِيْداً, وَلِكُلِّ صَامِتٍ مِنْكَ عِلْماً مُحِيْطاً بَاطِناً, مَوَاعِيْدُكَ الصَادِقَةُ وَأَيَادِيْكَ الْفَاضِلَةُ, وَرَحْمَتُكَ الْوَاسِعَةُ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ بِيْ كَذَا وَكَذَا,

    Allaahumma Innee As'aluka Yaa May Yamliku Hawaa'ijas Saa'ileen, wa Ya`lamu Dhamaa'iras Saamiteen, fa-Inna li-Kulli Mas'alatim minka Sam`an Haadhiraa, wa Jawaaban `Ateedaa, wa li-Kulli Saamitim minka `Ilmam Muheetam Baatinaa, Mawaa`eedukas Saadiqah wa Ayaadeekal Faadhilah, wa Rahmatukal Waasi`ah, an Taf`ala bee Kadhaa wa Kadhaa.

    "O Allaah, I ask You, the One Who carries the needs of those who ask, and Who knows the innermost thoughts of those who are silent. For everything that is asked of You, You hear it, and You have a response prepared, and for every silent one, there is, from you, a complete, secret, encompassing `Ilm (Knowledge) of it. Your Promises are truthful, and You are Most Generous, and Your Rahmah (Mercy) is most vast. (I ask You, O Allaah) that you do such-and-such for me."

    Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما said: "This is a Du`aa which was taught to me while I was asleep. I didn't think that anyone else knew it."

    - 56 -

    I saw in the Majmoo` of Abu-l Husayn Ahmad ibn al-Qaadhee Abu-l Hasan `Ali ibn ar-Rasheed ibn az-Zubayr, the text of which was: "The Salaah of Relief. When any difficulty afflicts you, perform a (fresh) and perfect Wudhoo, and then perform either two or four Rak`ats of Salaah, and at the end of your Salaah say:

    اللهُمَّ يَا مَوْضِعَ كُلِّ شَكْوَى, وَيَا سَامِعَ كُلِّ نَجْوَى, وَيَا شَاهِدَ كُلِّ بَلْوَى, يَا عَالِمَ كُلِّ خَفِيَّةٍ, وَيَا كَاشِفَ كُلِّ بَلِيَّةٍ, يَا مُنْجِيْ مُوْسَى صلى الله عليه وسلم, وَمُصْطَفَى مُحَمَّدٍ صلى الله عليه وعلى آله, أَدْعُوْكَ دُعَاءَ مَنِ اشْتَدَّتْ فَاقَتُهُ, وَضَعْفَتْ قُوَّتُهُ, وَقَلَّتْ حِيْلَتُهُ, دُعَاءَ الْغَرِيْبِ الْغَرِيْقِ الْمُضْطَرِّ الَّذِيْ لَا يَجِدُ لِكَشْفِ مَا هُوَ فِيْهِ إِلَّا أَنْتَ, يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَاحِمِيْنَ, أَكْشِفْ مَا بِيْ وَادْفَعْ عِنِّيْ كَذَا وَكَذَا

    Allaahumma Yaa Mawdhi`a Kulli Shakwaa, wa Yaa Saami`a Kulli Najwaa, wa Yaa Shaahida Kulli Balwaa, Yaa `Aalima Kulli Khafiyyah, wa Yaa Kaashifa Kulli Baliyyah, Yaa Munjee Moosaa Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam wa Mustafaa Muhammad Sallallaahu `Alayhi wa `alaa Aalih, Ad`ooka Du`aa man Ishtaddat Faaqatuh, wa Dha`ufat Quwwatuh, wa Qallat Heelatuh, Du`aa'al Ghareeb-il-Ghareeq al-Mudhtarr alladhee Laa Yajidu li-Kashfi maa Huwa Feehi Illaa Anta, Yaa Ar-hamar Raahimeen, Akshif maa bee Wadfa` `Annee Kadhaa wa Kadhaa.

    "O Allaah, the One to Whom every complain is addressed, the One Who hears every conversation, the One Who witnesses every calamity, the One Who knows every hidden thing, the One Who Removes every hardship, the One Who saved Moosaa صلى الله عليه وسلم and Mustafaa Muhammad صلى الله عليه وعلى آله. I call upon You with the Du`aa of the one whose poverty and need has become severe, whose strength has become weak, whose means has become little, the Du`aa of the stranger who is drowning, the one who is forced and in distress, the one who finds no way for the removal of what he is in except You, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy. Remove from me whatever (difficulties are afflicting me) and repel from me such-and-such."

    I saw in the biography of the Imaam, Muhyi-yuddeen `Abdul Qaadir al-Qurashi al-Hanafi, in his handwriting, the following text:

    "Whosoever is in difficulty, and his means are cut off, then let him write his request to Allaah Ta`aalaa (on a paper) and cast it into the sea, after Salaat-ul-`Asr on the day of Jumu`ah. And on this (paper) he should write the following:

    بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَحْمَنِ الرَحِيْمِ

    مِنَ الْعَبْدِ الذَلِيْلِ إِلَى الْمَلِكِ الْجَلِيْلِ

    الحَمْدُ للهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ سَلَامٌ عَلَى إِلْيَاسِيْنَ مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَاحِمِيْنَ, لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّيْ كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَالِمِيْنَ فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَكَذَلِكَ نُنْجِيْ المُؤْمِنِيْنَ, اللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ مَا نَزَلَ بِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِ كَذَا وَكَذَا فَاجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْهُ فَرَجاً وَمَخْرَجاً إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ وَصَلَّى اللهُ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ,

    Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

    "In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful, the Very Merciful.

    From the lowly slave, to the Most Glorious King,

    All praises belong solely to Allaah, the Rabb of all the worlds. Peace be upon Ilyaaseen. Harm has afflicted me, and You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy. There is no Ilaah besides You, glory be unto You, indeed, I have been from the wrong-doers. So We responded to him and We saved him from the Ghamm (sorrow; grief), and thus do We save the Mu'mineen. O Allaah, You know of such-and-such difficulty which has afflicted me, so make for me from it a relief and a way out, for indeed You are All-Powerful over all things. And, salutations and peace of Allaah be upon (our Nabi) Muhammad and upon his family."

    And at the time of throwing it into the sea, he must say:

    "This is the request of Fulaan ibn Fulaan, and Laa Howla wa Laa Quwwata Illaa Billaah (There is no force or might except with Allaah)."

    He must say this three times.

    [Translator's Note: In place of Fulaan ibn Fulaan, one must write his name and the name of his father, e.g. "Muhammad ibn `Abdillaah", "Muhammad ibn Idrees", etc. In the place of the first "Fulaan" he will mention his own name, and in place of the second, he will mention his father's name.]

    In it (that same biography, it is narrated that) al-Hajjaaj said to Hasan al-Basri: "What do you say about `Ali and `Uthmaan?" He said: I say: "I say the statement of one who is better than me in the presence of the one who is worse than you. Fir`own said to Moosaa (عليه السلام): "What about the generations of old?" He said: "The knowledge of it is with my Rabb in a Kitaab. My Rabb does not err, nor does He forget."

    The knowledge of (the matter of Hadhrat) `Ali and (Hadhrat) `Uthmaan (رضي الله عنهما) is with Allaah Ta`aalaa."

    So al-Hajjaaj said to him: "You are the leader of the `Ulamaa, O Abu Sa`eed." Thereafter he (Hajjaaj) called for some expensive perfume, and applied it to the beard of (Imaam Hasan al-Basri).

    When (Imaam) Hasan, the chamberlain (of Hajjaaj) followed him and asked him: "O Abu Sa`eed, by Allaah, he (Hajjaaj) had called you for a reason other than this (i.e. he called summoned you to kill you), and he had prepared the leather rug and the sword. When you came, I saw your lips moving (reciting) something, so what was it?" He said: "I said:

    يَا غِيَاثِيْ عِنْدَ كُرْبَتِيْ, وَيَا صَاحِبِيْ عِنْدَ شِدَّتِيْ, وَيَا وَلِيَّ نِعْتَمِيْ, وَيَا إِلَهِيْ وَإِلَهَ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيْلَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوْبَ ارْزُقْنِيْ مَوَدَّتَهُ, وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّيْ أَذَاهُ وَمَعَرَّتَهُ,

    Yaa Ghiyaathee `inda Kurbatee, wa Yaa Saahibee `inda Shiddatee, wa Yaa Waliyya Ni`matee, wa Yaa Ilaahee wa Ilaaha Ibraaheema wa Ismaa`eela wa Is-haaqa wa Ya`qoobar-zuqnee Mawaddatah, wasrif `annee Adhaahu wa Ma`arratah.

    "O (Allaah), the One I seek help from during hardships, my Companion during difficulties, the Granter and Protector of my favours, my Ilaah and the Ilaah of Ibraaheem, Ismaa`eel, Is-haaq and Ya`qoob, grant me his love and affection, and avert from me his harm and his disgrace."

    So my Rabb, `Azza wa Jall, granted me that (which I asked for).

    - 59 -

    In it (that biography), it is also narrated from `Ataa as-Sulaymee, who said: I used to ask Allaah, my Rabb, that He teaches me such a Name from His Names that I may make Du`aa to Him using at the time of my need. So one night, whilst I was in the Masjid, a brightness entered upon me and took shape in my heart, and it was:

    يَا اللهُ يَا اللهُ يَا اللهُ يَا رَحْمَنُ يَا نُوْرُ يَاذَا الجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ

    Yaa Allaah,Yaa Allaah, Yaa Allaah, Yaa Rahmaan, Yaa Noor, Yaa Dhal Jalaali wal-Ikraam.


    Whenever I used to make Du`aa using this, I would be granted relief.

    - 60 -

    It is also mentioned therein (i.e. in that biography) that the time the slave (of Allaah) is the closest to (being granted) relief is when the difficulty becomes most severe.

    From the sayings that are well-known is:

    "When the the crisis becomes most severe, you will be granted relief.”

    Relief from hardships and distress comes when the difficulty has reached its most severe point; at this stage, one becomes distressed, and the Creator, Sub-haanahu wa Ta`aalaa has promised those in distress that He will answer (their Du`aas) and remove the harm from them, and He promised those who make Du`aa with a general answering (of their Du`aas).

    - 62 -

    In the Kitaab, "Misbaah azh-Zhulaam fil-Mustagheetheena bi-Khayril Anaam" of Abu `Abdillaah ibn an-Nu`maan, it is mentioned: (Once), while al-Mahdi (the Abbasid Khaleefah) was sleeping at night, he awoke very suddenly, in fright. He called his officer in charge of the police force and ordered him to go to the jail and release the `Alawi, so he did so. When (the prisoner left) and was about to mount (the conveyance), he (the officer) asked him: "I ask you by the One Who granted you relief: do you know what caused Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen to set you free?" He said: "By Allaah, I had been sleeping tonight, and I saw Rasoollullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم in a dream. He said to me: "O my son, they oppressed you?" I said: "Yes, O Rasoolullaah." He said: "Then stand up and perform two Rak`ats (of Salaah), and thereafter say:

    يَا سَابِقَ الْفَوْتِ, وَيَا سَامِعَ الصَوْتِ, وَيَا كَاسِيَ الْعِظَامِ بعد الموت صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آل مُحَمَّدٍ, وَاجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِيْ فَرَجاً وَّمَخْرَجاً, إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ وَتَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ, وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوْبِ

    Yaa Saabiqal Fawt, wa Yaa Saami`as Sawt, wa Yaa Kaasiyal `Izhaami ba`dal Mawt, Salli `alaa Muhammad wa `alaa Aali Muhammad, waj-`al lee min Amree Farajaw wa Makhrajaa, Innaka Ta`lamu wa laa A`lamu wa Taqdiru wa laa Aqdiru wa Anta `Allaamul Ghuyoob.

    "O One Whom none can escape from; O Hearer of all voices; O One Who covers the bones with flesh after (the) death (of the people); send salutations upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, and for for me a relief and a way out from the difficulty that I am in, for verily You know whilst I do not know and You are All-Powerful whilst I am powerless, and You are the Knower of the unseen."

    I had stood up and was repeating it when you called me (i.e. to be released from prison).”

    - 63 -

    It is narrated that once, al-Azeez Bilaah (an Abbasid Khaleefah) imprisoned ash-Shareef ibn Tabaatabaa and appointed a guard over him. That night, he (ash-Shareef) saw Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم in a dream, and he said to him: "Al-`Azeez appointed (a guard) over you?" He said: "Yes, O Rasoolullaah." He asked: "Where are you with regards to the five (Aayaat) by which Allaah will grant you relief?" He said: I said: "O Rasoolullaah, what are they?" He said: "The Saying of Allaah Ta`aalaa:

    وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ
    الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُمْ مُصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
    أُولَئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُهْتَدُونَ

    {"And give glad-tidings to the patient ones. Those who, when they are afflicted by any calamity they say: "Indeed, to Allaah we belong and to Him we shall return." They, upon them are salutations from their Rabb, and Mercy, and they are the ones who are rightly guided."}

    And the Saying of Allaah Ta`aalaa:

    الَّذِينَ قَالَ لَهُمُ النَّاسُ إِنَّ النَّاسَ قَدْ جَمَعُوا لَكُمْ فَاخْشَوْهُمْ فَزَادَهُمْ إِيمَانًا
    وَقَالُوا حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ
    فَانْقَلَبُوا بِنِعْمَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَفَضْلٍ لَمْ يَمْسَسْهُمْ سُوءٌ وَاتَّبَعُوا رِضْوَانَ اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَظِيمٍ

    {"Those who, when the people said to them, "Indeed, the people (i.e. the Kuffaar) have gathered against you, so fear them." They said: "Allaah is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs." So they returned with a Ni`mah (Favour) from Allaah Ta`aalaa and His Bounty; evil did not touch them. And, they followed the Pleasure of ALlaah, and Allaah is the Owner of Great Bounty."}

    وَأَيُّوبَ إِذْ نَادَى رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
    فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ فَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِ مِنْ ضُرٍّ وَآتَيْنَاهُ أَهْلَهُ وَمِثْلَهُمْ مَعَهُمْ رَحْمَةً مِنْ عِنْدِنَا وَذِكْرَى لِلْعَابِدِينَ

    {"And (remember) Ayyoob, when he called upon his Rabb, saying: "I have been touched by harm, and You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy." So We responded to him and removed what was with him of harm, and We granted him his family and a like thereof along with them, as a Mercy from Us and a Reminder for the worshippers."}

    وَذَا النُّونِ إِذْ ذَهَبَ مُغَاضِبًا فَظَنَّ أَنْ لَنْ نَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادَى فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ
    فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَكَذَلِكَ نُنْجِي الْمُؤْمِنِينَ


    {"And (remember) Dhan Noon (i.e. Nabi Yunus عليه السلام) when he left (from his people) in a state of anger, and imagined that We shall not decree upon him (i.e. the imprisonment in the belly of the whale), so he called out in the darkness, saying: "There is no Ilaah besides You! Glory be unto You! Verily, I was from the wrong-doers." So We responded to him and We saved him from the Ghamm (sorrow; grief), and thus do We save the Mu'mineen."}

    فَسَتَذْكُرُونَ مَا أَقُولُ لَكُمْ وَأُفَوِّضُ أَمْرِي إِلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَصِيرٌ بِالْعِبَادِ
    فَوَقَاهُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِ مَا مَكَرُوا وَحَاقَ بِآلِ فِرْعَوْنَ سُوءُ الْعَذَابِ

    {"So you will remember what I say to you, and I entrust my affair to Allaah. Indeed, Allaah is All-Seeing with regards to His slaves." So Allaah saved him from the evil which they were planning, and the evil torment surrounded the family of Fir`own."}

    So I woke up and I had memorised that, and after I awoke, I was released and thus I knew the Barakah (blessings) of those five Aayaat."

    Imaam ibn `Asaakir narrates in his Taareekh from Ja`far ibn Muhammad ibn `Ali ibn al-Husain, that al-Mansoor once oppressed him, so he performed two Rak`ats of Salaah and then made the following Du`aa:


    اللهُمَّ بِكَ أَسْتَفْتِحُ وَبِكَ أَسْتَنْجِحُ وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَرَسُوْلِكَ أَتَوَسَّلُ اللهُمَّ سَهِّلْ حَزُوْنَتَهُ وَذَلِّلْ لِيْ صُعُوْبَتَهُ وَأَعْطِنِيْ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا أَرْجُوْ وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّيْ مِنَ الشَّرِّ أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا أَخَافُ


    Allaahumma bika Astaftihu wa bika Astanjihu wa bi-Muhammadin `Abdika wa Rasoolika Atawassalu, Allaahumma Sahhil lee Hazoonatah, wa Dhallil lee Su`oobatah, wa A`tinee minal Khayri Akthara mimmaa Arjoo Wasrif `Annee minash Sharri Akthara mimmaa Akhaaf.


    “O Allaah, through You I seek victory and through You I gain success, and (O Allaah) it is through Your slave and Rasool, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) that I make Tawassul. O Allaah, ease for me its grief and its difficulty, and grant me more goodness than (even) what I hope for, and avert from me more than just the evil that I fear.”


    So when he entered upon al-Mansoor, he (al-Mansoor) met him and honoured him.

    Imaam ad-Daylami and Imaam ibn `Asaakir narrate from Ja`far ibn Muhammad, who said: My father narrated to me from his grandfather, that whenever Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم would be troubled by any matter, he would make the following Du`aa which was said to be the Du`aa of Relief (from difficulties):

    اللهُمَّ احْرُسْنِيْ بِعَيْنِكَ الَّتِيْ لَا تَنَامُ, وَاكْنُفْنِيْ بِرُكْنِكَ الَّذِيْ لَا يَضَامُ, وَارْحَمْنِيْ بِقُدْرَتِكَ عَلَيَّ, وَلَا أَهْلُكُ وَأَنْتَ رَجَائِيْ, فَكَمْ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ أَنْعَمْتَ بِهَا عَلَيَّ قَلَّ لَكَ عِنْدَهَا شُكْرِيْ, وَكَمْ مِنْ بَلِيَّةٍ إِبْتَلَيْتَنِيْ بِهَا قَلَّ لَكَ عِنْدَهَا صَبْرِيْ, فَيَا مَنْ قَلَّ عِنْدَ نِعْمَتِهِ شُكْرِيْ فَلَمْ يَحْرِمْنِيْ, وَيَا مَنْ قَلَّ عِنْدَ بَلِيَّتِهِ صَبْرِيْ فَلَمْ يَخْذُلْنِيْ, وَيَا مَنْ رَآنِيْ عَلَى الْخَطَايَا فَلَمْ يَفْضَحْنِيْ, أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ وَبَارَكْتَ وَرَحِمْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيْمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيْدٌ مَجِيْدٌ. اللهُمَّ أَعِنِّيْ عَلَى دِيْنِيْ بِدُنْيَايَ, وَعَلَى آخِرَتِيْ بِتَقْوَايَ, وَاحْفَظْنِيْ فِيْمَا غِبْتُ عَنْهُ, وَلَا تَكِلْنِيْ إِلَى نَفْسِيْ فِيْمَا حَضَرْتُهُ, يَامَنْ لَا تَضُرُّهُ الذُنُوْبُ وَلَا تَنْقُصُهُ الْمَغْفِرَةٌ, هَبْ لِيْ مَا لَا يَضُرُّكَ, وَاغْفِرْ لِيْ مَا لَا يَنْقُصُكَ:. اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ فَرَجاً قَرِيْباً, وَصَبْراً جَمِيْلًا, وَأسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بَلِيَّةٍ, وَأَسْأَلُكَ دَوَامَ عَافِيَتِكَ, وَأَسْأَلُكَ الْغِنَى عَنِ النَاسِ وَأَسْأَلُكَ السَلَامَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ, وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلّا بِاللهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيْمِ

    "O Allaah, guard me with Your Eyes which do not sleep, and guard me with Your Protection which does not go harm, and have mercy upon me by Your Power over me. I will not perish so long as You are my hope. How many a favour You have bestowed upon me, yet my gratitude for it was very little. How many a test You tested me with, yet my patience at that time was very little. So (O Allaah), O One Who, despite my gratitude for His Favours being very little, He did not deprive me, and despite my patience over His tests being very little, He did not abandon me, and O One Who sees me upon sins and yet He does not disgrace me, I ask that You send salutations upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, like how You sent salutations, blessings and mercy upon Ibraaheem. Verily, You are the Praiseworthy, the Majestic. O Allaah, help me on my Deen through my Dunyaa, and my Aakhirah through my Taqwaa. Protect me from that which I am absent from and do not leave me to myself in those things wherein I am present. O One Who is not harmed by sins and Who is not diminished by forgiving, grant me (my Du`aa, for verily granting) does not harm You, and forgive me (for verily forgiving me) does not diminish You. O Allaah, I ask You for a relief that is near, and beautiful patience, and I ask You for safety from every affliction, and I ask You for the permanence of the safety You grant me, and I ask You for independance from people, and I ask you for safety from everything, and there is no force or power except with Allaah, the Most High and the Most Great."

    Imaam al-Kharaa'iti narrates in "Makaarim al-Akhlaaq", from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Alqamah at-Taa'i, that Hadhrat Jibreel عليه السلام came to Nabi Yusuf عليه السلام whilst he was in jail and said to him, "I have come to teach you some words which perhaps Allaah Ta`aalaa may grant you benefit through. Say:

    اللهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْ كُلِّ هَمٍّ يُهِمُّنِيْ فَرَجاً وَمَخْرَجاً وَارْزُقْنِيْ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا أَحْتَسِبُ

    Allaahummaj-`al lee min Kulli Hammin Yuhimmunee Farajaw wa Makhrajaa, Warzuqnee min Haythu laa Ahtasib.

    "O Allaah, grant me relief and a way out from every worry which worries me, and grant me Rizq (sustenance) from whence I do not even imagine."

    الحَمْدُ للهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ سَلَامٌ عَلَى إِلْيَاسِيْنَ مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَاحِمِيْنَ, لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّيْ كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَالِمِيْنَ فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَكَذَلِكَ نُنْجِيْ المُؤْمِنِيْنَ, اللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ مَا نَزَلَ بِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِ كَذَا وَكَذَا فَاجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْهُ فَرَجاً وَمَخْرَجاً إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ وَصَلَّى اللهُ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ,

    Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
