    The Relief After Hardship


    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.

    Our leader, the Shaykh, the Imaam, the `Aalim, the one who acted upon his `Ilm, the Haafiz, the `Allaamah, Shaykh-ul-Islaam wal-Muslimeen, the Mujtahid of his era, the reliance of the Fuqahaa and Muhadditheen, Abu’l Fadhl Jalaal-ud-Deen as-Suyooti ash-Shaafi`ee تَغَمَّدَهُ اللهُ بِرَحْمَتِهِ وَأَسْكَنَهُ فَسِيْحَ جَنَّاتِهِ, آمين, said:

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    لا إله إلّا الله الحليم الكريم, سبحان الله وتبارك الله رب العرش العظيم, والحمد لله رب العالمين

    This is an intricate writing of Abu Bakr ibn Abi-d Dunyaa, known as “al-Faraju ba`d-ash-Shiddah”, which I have summarised whilst adding some good and beneficial additions from my own side, and I have named it, “al-Araj fil-Faraj” (The Fragrance in the Relief).

    أخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إنتظار الفرج من الله عبادة

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Hadhrat `Ali ibn Abi Taalib رضي الله عنه, who said, “Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Waiting for relief (from distress) from Allaah Ta`aalaa is `Ibaadah.”

    وأخرج الترمذي وابن أبي الدنيا عن عبد الله بن مسعود قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: سلوا الله من فضله فإن الله يحبّ أن يسأل من فضله, وأفضل العبادة انتظار الفرج

    Imaam at-Tirmidhee and Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrate from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn Mas`ood رضي الله عنه that he said, “Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Ask Allaah for His Fadhl (Bounty), for indeed Allaah loves being asked for His Fadhl, and (know that) the best `Ibaadah is waiting for relief (from hardship, from Allaah Ta`aalaa).”

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن سهل بن سعد الساعدي أنّ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لعبد الله بن عباس: واعلم أنّ النصر مع الصبر, وأنّ الفرج مع الكرب, وأنّ مع العسر يسراً

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Hadhrat Sahl ibn Sa`d as-Saa`idee رضي الله عنه who said that Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said to Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما, “Know that Nasr (help and victory) comes with Sabr (patience), that relief comes with hardship, and that with difficulty comes ease.”

    وأجرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن أسلم أنّ أبا عبيدة حصر فكتب إليه عمر يقول: مهما ينزل بامرئٍ من شدّة يجعل الله له بعدها فرجاً وإنه لن يغلب عسر يسرين

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunaa narrates from Aslam, who said that Hadhrat Abu `Ubaydah رضي الله عنه (and the Muslim army) were once surrounded (by the enemy), so Hadhrat `Umar رضي الله عنه wrote to him, saying, “Whatever difficulty befalls a person (who is a Mu’min), Allaah will grant him relief from it thereafter, and (know that) one hardship will never ever defeat two periods of ease.”

    Imaam Abu Daawud, Imaam an-Nasaa’i, Imaam ibn Maajah and Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrate from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما that he said, “Whosoever makes Istighfaar (seeks forgiveness from Allaah Ta`aalaa) in abundance, Allaah will grant him relief from every single worry, anxiety and distress, will make a way out for him from every difficulty, and will grant him Rizq (sustenance) from whence he had never even imagined.”

    Imaam an-Nasaa’i, Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa, Imaam ibn Hibbaan and Imaam al-Haakim narrate - and Imaam al-Haakim declares it to be Saheeh - from Hadhrat `Ali ibn Abi Taalib رضي الله عنه that he said, “Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم taught me the following words, and commanded me to say them should any difficulty or hardship befall me: Laa Ilaaha Illallaahul Haleemul Kareem, Sub-haanallaahi wa Tabaarakallaahu Rabb-ul-`Arshil `Azheem wal-Hamdu Lillaahi Rabb-il-`Aalameen.”

    وأخرج أبو داود والنسائي وابن أبي الدنيا عن أبي بكر عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: دعوات المكروب: اللهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أَرْجُوْ فَلَا تَكِلْنِيْ إِلَى نَفْسِيْ طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ وَأَصْلِحْ لِيْ شَأْنِيْ كُلَّهُ لَا إِلهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

    Imaam Abu Daawud, Imaam an-Nasaa’i, and Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrate from Hadhrat Abu Bakr رضي الله عنهما that Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “The Du`aa of the person undergoing difficulty is: Allaahumma Rahmataka Arjoo falaa Takilnee Ilaa Nafsee Tarfata `Ayn, wa As-lih lee Sha’nee Kullahu Laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta.

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن أسماء بنت عميس قالت: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: من أصابه غمّ أو همّ أو سقم أو شدّة أو أزل أو لأوَاء فقال: اللهُ اللهُ رَبِّيْ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ, كشف ذلك عنه

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Hadhrat Asma bint `Umays رضي الله عنها that she said, “I heard Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, ‘Whosoever is afflicted by sadness, or worry, or sickness, or difficulty, or distress, or any hardship in life, or adversity, and says, ‘Allaah, Allaahu Rabbee, Laa Shareeka Lahu’, it will be removed from him.”

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا والطبراني والحاكم عن ابن مسعود قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ما أصاب مسلماً قطّ همّ ولا حزن فقال: اللهُمَّ إِنِّيْ عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ, نَاصِيَتِيْ فِيْ يَدَيْكَ, نَافِذٌ فِيَّ حُكْمُكَ, عَدْلٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ, أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ أَوْ أَنْزَلْتَهُ فِيْ كِتَابِكَ أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَداً مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوِ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِيْ عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ الْعَظِيْمَ رَبِيْعَ قَلْبِيْ, وَنُوْرَ بَصَرِيْ, وَجَلَاءَ حُزْنِيْ, وَذَهَابَ هَمِّيْ, إلا أذهب الله همّه وأبدله مكان حزنه فرحاً. قالوا: يا رسول الله, أفلا نتعلم هذه الكلمات؟ قال: بلى, ينبغي لمن سمعهن أن يتعلمهن

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa, Imaam at-Tabraani, and Imaam al-Haakim narrate from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn Mas`ood رضي الله عنه that he said, “Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘No Muslim is ever afflicted with any worry or sadness, and then says, ‘Allaahummaa Innee `Abduka wab-nu `Abdika wab-nu Amatika, Naasiyatee bi-Yadayka, Naafidhun fiyya Hukmuka, `Adlun fiyya Qadhaa’uka, As’aluka bi-Kulli Ismin Huwa Laka Sammayta Bihee Nafsaka Aw Anzaltahu fee Kitaabika Aw `Allamtahu Ahadam min Khalqika Aw Ista’tharta Bihee fee `Ilm-il-Ghaybi `Indaka, an Taj`alal Qur’aanal `Azheema Rabee`a Qalbee, wa Noora Basaree, wa Jalaa’a Huznee, wa Dhahaaba Hammee’ (O Allaah, I am your slave, the son of your male slave, the son of your female slave. My forelock is in Your Hands (i.e. You have absolute control over me). Your Judgement upon me is assured and Your Decree upon me is just. I ask You by every Name which You possess; every Name You have named Yourself, or revealed in Your Kitaab, or taught anyone from Your creation, or kept unto Yourself in the knowledge of the unseen that is with You, that You make the Qur’aan `Azheem the spring of my heart, the Noor of my sight, the expeller of my sadness and the remover of my worry), except that Allaah will remove his worries and will replace his sadness with joy.” They (the Sahaabah) asked, “Should we not learn these words?” Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Definitely. Whosoever hears these words should learn them.”

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا من طريق الخليل بن مرة عن فقيه أهل الأردن قال: بلغنا أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا أصابه غم أو كرب يقول: حَسْبِيَ الرَّبُّ مِنَ العِبَادِ, حَسْبِيَ الخَالِقُ مِنَ المَخْلُوْقِيْنَ, حَسْبِيَ الرَازِقُ مِنَ المَرْزُوْقِيْنَ, حَسْبِيَ الَّذِيْ هُوَ حَسْبِيْ, حَسْبِيَ اللهُ وَنِعْمَ الوَكِيْلُ, حَسْبِيَ اللهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبُّ العَرْشِ الْعَظِيْمِ

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from al-Khaleel ibn Murrah, from a Faqeeh (Jurist) from the people of Jordan, that he said, “It has reached us that whenever any sadness or difficulty afflicted Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, he would say, ‘Hasbiyar Rabbu minal `Ibaad, Hasbiyal Khaaliqu minal Makhlooqeen, Hasbiyar Raaziqu minal Marzooqeen, Hasbiyal-ladhee Huwa Hasbee, Hasbiyallaahu wa Ni`mal Wakeel, Hasbiyallaahu Laa Ilaaha Illaa Hoo, `Alayhi Tawakkaltu wa Huwa Rabbul `Arshil `Azheem.’ (My Rabb is sufficient for me against (His) slaves; al-Khaaliq (the Creator) is sufficient for me against (His) creation; ar-Raaziq (the Provider) is sufficient for me against those (He) provides for. The One Who is sufficient for me, suffices me. Allaah is sufficient for me, and He is the best disposer of affairs. Allaah is sufficient for me; there is no Ilaah besides Him. Upon Him I have Tawakkul (I put my trust), and He is the Rabb of the Magnificent Throne.)”

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن إسماعيل بن أبي فديك قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ما كربني أمر إلا تمثّل لي جبريل فقال: يا محمّد, قل: تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الحَيِّ الَّذِيْ لَا يَمُوْتُ, وَالحَمْدُ لِلهِ الَّذِيْ لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلّداً وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيْكٌ فِيْ المُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيْراً

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Ismaa`eel ibn Abi Fadeek, who said, “Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Never was I afflicted with any difficulty or grief except that Jibreel came to me and said, ‘O Muhammad! Say: Tawakkaltu `alal Hayyil-ladhee Laa Yamoot, wal-Hamdu Lillaahil-ladhee lam Yattakhidh Waladaa, wa lam Yakul lahu Shareekun fil Mulk, wa lam Yakul lahu Waliyyum minadh Dhulli wa Kabbir-hu Takbeeraa.’ (I put my Tawakkul (trust) upon al-Hayy (the Ever-Living), who will never die. All praises are due to Allaah (Alone), the One who has not taken any son, nor does He have any partner in the Dominion, nor does He require any Wali (protector; helper; guardian) to help Him from adh-Dhull (being lowered, i.e. He can never be lowered, and thus is not in need of any helper). And, glorify and revere Him with a complete reverence.)”

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن محمد بن علي بن علي أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم علّم عليّاً دعوة يدعو بها عند كل ما أهمّه, فكان عليّ ععلّمها ولده: يَا كَائِناً قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ, وَيَا مُكَوِّنَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ, وَيَا كَائِناً بَعْدَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ, إِفْعَلْ بِيْ كَذَا وَكَذَا

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Muhammad ibn `Ali ibn `Ali that Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم taught Hadhrat `Ali رضي الله عنه a Du`aa which he was to make Du`aa unto Allaah Ta`aala with whenever he was afflicted with any worries or anxiety. Thus, Hadhrat `Ali رضي الله عنه used to teach this Du`aa to his children. (The Du`aa is): ‘Yaa Kaa’inan Qabla Kulli Shay’, wa Yaa Mukawwina Kulli Shay’, wa Yaa Kaa’inan Ba`da Kulli Shay’, If`al bee Kadhaa wa Kadhaa.’ (O One Who existed before everything! O Creator of everything! O One Who will exist after everything! Do with me such and such.)”

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Imaam ad-Dahhaak, who said, “The Du`aa of Moosaa عليه السلام when he headed to Fir`own, and the Du`aa of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم on the day of (the Battle of) Hunayn, and the Du`aa of every person in distress is: ‘Kunta wa Takoonu wa Anta Hayyun laa Tamoot. Tanaamul `Uyoon wa Tankadirun Nujoom wa Anta Hayyun Qayyoom, laa Ta’khudhuhu Sinatuw wa laa Nawm, Yaa Hayyu Yaa Qayyoom.’ (You were, and You will be, and You are the Ever-Living, You will never die. The eyes sleep, the starts (will) fall, but You are the Ever-Living, the Sustainer, Who is not overtaken by slumber or sleep. O Ever-Living, O Sustainer (of everything)!”

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن يحيى بن سليم أنه بلغه أن ملك الموت استأذن ربّه أن يسلّم على يعقوب عليهما السلام فأذن له فأتاه فقال: ألا أعلّمك كلمات لا تسأل الله شيئاً إلا أعطاك؟ قال: بلى, قال: قل: يا ذَا الْمَعْرُوْفِ الَذِيْ لَا يَنْقَطِعُ أَبَداً وَلَا يُحْصِيْهِ غَيْرُهُ, فَمَا طَلَعَ الْفَجْرُ حَتَّى أُتِيَ بِقَمِيْصِ يُوْسُفَ

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Yahyaa ibn Saleem that it reached him that Malak al-Mawt (the Angel of Death) once sought permission from Allaah Ta`aalaa to send Salaam to Nabi Ya`qoob عليهما السلام, so permission was granted to him. He came to him and said, "Should I not teach you some words which, you will not ask Allaah for anything (using these words) except that He will grant you?" He said, "Definitely." He said: "Say: 'Yaa Dha'l Ma`roofilladhee laa Yanqati`u Abadaa wa laa Yuhseehi Ghayruh' (O (Allaah), the One of Goodness which never ends and none but Him can encompass it). (Nabi Ya`qoob عليه السلام made Du`aa with these words) and Fajr did not come in but he was already presented with the Qamees (Kurtah) of Yusuf عليه السلام.

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن إبراهيم بن خلّاد قال: نزل جبريل على يعقوب عليهما السلام فشكا إليه ما هو فيه فقال: ألا أعلّمك دعاء إذا دعوت به فرّج الله عنك؟ قال: بلى, قال: قل: يا من لا يعلم كيف هو إلا هو, ويا من لا يبلغ قدرته غيره فرّج عنّي, فأتاه البشير

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Ibraaheem ibn Khallaad who said: Jibreel عليه السلام visited Ya`qoob عليه السلام, so he (Nabi Ya`qoob) complained to him about what he was in, so he said: "Should I not teach you a Du`aa which, when you make Du`aa to Allaah with it, Allaah will relieve you (of that problem)?" He said: "Definitely". He said: "Say: 'Yaa Man Laa Ya`lamu Kayfa Huwa illaa Hu, wa Yaa Man laa Yablughu Qudratahu Ghayruhu Farrij `Annee' (O Allaah, the One Who none knows how He is except Himslef, and the One Who none can reach His Qudrah (Power) except Him, relieve me (from all difficulties, troubles, problems and worries)." (Nabi Ya`qoob عليه السلام made this Du`aa) and the glad-tidings came to him (of Yusuf عليه السلام).

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن محمد بن عمر عن رجل من أهل الكوفة أن جبريل دخل على يوسف عليهما السلام السجن فقال قل: اللهُمَّ يَا شَاهِداً غَيْرَ غَائِبٍ, وَيَا قَرِيْباً غَيْرَ بَعِيْدٍ, وَيَا غَالِباً غَيْرَ مَغْلُوْبٍ, إِجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِيْ فَرَجاً وَّمَخْرَجاً, وَارْزُقْنِيْ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا أَحْتَسِبُ

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from Muhammad ibn `Umar, from a man from the people of Kufah, that Jibreel عليه السلام visited Nabi Yusuf عليه السلام when he was in prison and said to him: "Say: 'Allaahumma Yaa Shaahidan Ghayra Ghaa'ib, wa Yaa Qareeban Ghayra Ba`eed, wa Yaa Ghaaliban Ghayra Maghloob, Ij`al lee min Amree Farajaw wa Makhrajaa, Warzuqnee min Haythu laa Ahtasib' (O Allaah, the One Who is Always Present and never absent, Who is Most Near and never distant, Who Overpowers and is never overpowered, grant for me a relief and way out from this affair (difficulty) of mine, and grant me sustenance from whence I do not even imagine.)"

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن رجل أخذه الحجاج فقيّده وأدخله بيتاً وأغلق عليه, قال: فسمعت منادياً ينادي في الزاوية يا فلان أدع بهذا الدعاء: يَا مَنْ لَا يَعْلَمُ كَيْفَ هُوَ إِلّا هُوَ وَيَا مَنْ لَا يَعْرِفُ قُدْرَتَهُ إِلّا هُوَ فَرِّجْ عَنِّيْ مَا أَنَا فِيْهِ, قال: فوالله ما فرغت منها حتى تساقطت القيود من رجلي, ونظرت إلى الأبواب مفتّحة فخرجت

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from a man who said that Hajjaaj caught him, imprisoned him and locked all the doors (of the jail). He says: "I heard a caller saying (and the voice came from) a corner (of the jail): "O so-and-so! Call upon Allaah with this Du`aa: 'Yaa Man laa Ya`lamu Kayfa Huwa illaa Hu, wa Yaa Man laa Ya`rifu Qudratahu illaa Hu, Farrij `Annee maa Ana Feehi' (O Allaah, the One Who no one knows how He is except Himself, and the One Who no one knows His Power except Him, relieve me from (the difficulty) which I am in.) He says: By Allaah! No sooner had I completed it, then the shackles fell off from my feet, and I looked at the doors (of the jail) and they were open, so I left."

    وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا عن عبد الملك بن عمير قال: كتب الوليد ابن عبد الملك إلى عثمان بن حيان المزني: أنظر الحسن بن الحسن فاجلده مائة جلدة وأوقفه للناس يوماً ولا أراني إلا قاتله, فبعث إليه فجيء به والخصوم بين يديه, فقام إليه علي بن الحسين فقال: أيا أخي تكلم بكلمات الفرج يفرّج الله عنك, لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ الْحَلِيْمُ الْكَرِيْمُ, سُبْحَانَ رَبِّ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْمِ, الْحَمدُ للهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ, فقالها فانفرجت الخصوم فرآه فقال: أرى وجه رجل قد اقترفت عليه كذبة, خلّوا سبيله

    Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrates from `Abdul Malik ibn `Umayr, who said: al-Waleed ibn `Abdil Malik wrote to `Uthmaan ibn Hayyaan al-Muzani, saying: "Find al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan, flog him 100 times and present him in front of the people one day, and I do not think except that I am going to kill him." So he (al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan) was sent for, and they came back with him, and all of the opponents (of al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan) were in front of him, so `Ali ibn al-Hasan went up to him and said, "O my brother, speak the words of relief (from distress). Allaah will relieve you from (this difficulty): ‘Laa ilaaha illallaahul Haleemul Kareem, Sub-haana Rabbis Samaawaatis Sab`i wa Rabbil `Arshil `Azheem, Alhamdulillaahi Rabbil `Aalameen’ (There is no Ilaah except Allaah, the Most Forbearing, the Most Generous. Glory be to the Rabb of the Seven Heavens, the Rabb of the Great Throne. All praises belong only to Allaah, the Rabb of all that exists." (When he recited this,) all of the opponents dispersed, and he (al-Waleed ibn `Abdili Malik) saw him and said, "I see the face of a man who has been lied against." (He then said to the guards) "Let him go."

    A poet says:

    إِذَا تَضَايَقَ أَمْرٌ فَانْتَظِرْ فَرَجاً فَأَصْعَبُ الْأَمْرِ أَدْنَاهُ مِنَ الْفَرَجِ

    "When times get tough, await relief; for indeed, the hardest time is the closest to the relief."

    - 24 -

    Another poet says:

    يَا صَاحِبَ الْهَمِّ إِنَّ الْهَمَّ مُنْقَطِعٌ لَا تَيْأَسَنَّ كَأَنْ قَدْ فَرَّجَ اللهُ

    "O person suffering from worry, (know that) worry comes to an end! Do not despair; it is as though Allaah has already granted the relief."

    - 25 -

    Another poet says:

    مِفْتَاحُ بَابِ الْفَرَجِ الصَّبْرُ وَكُلُّ عُسْرٍ مَعَهُ يُسْرُ
    والدَّهْرُ لَا يَبْقَى عَلَى حَالَةٍ وَالْأَمْرُ يَأْتِيْ بَعْدَهُ الْأَمْرُ
    وَالْكَرْبُ تُفْنِيْهِ اللَيَالِيْ الَّتِيْ يُفْنَىْ عَلَيْهَا الْخَيْرُ وَالشرُّ

    "The key to the door of relief is Sabr; every difficulty is followed up by ease.

    Time does not remain upon one state; after one state of affairs comes another.
    Difficulties are wiped out by the many nights; the (nights) over which both good times and bad times are wiped out."

    Another poet says:

    عسى الكرب الذي أمسيت فيه يكون وراءه فرجٌ قريبُ
    فيأمن خائفٌ ويفكّ عانٍ ويأتيَ أهلَه النائي الغريبُ

    "Soon the difficulty which you find yourself in, there will be after it a relief near at hand. Thus, the fearful one will attain security and the one undergoing hardship will be freed, and the distant stranger will return to his family.

    The poet, Abu'l `Ataahiyyah said:

    هي الأيام والعبر وأمر اللهِ يُنْتظرُ
    أتيأس أن ترى فرجاً فأين الله والقدرُ

    "(These) are the days and lessons, and the Command of Allaah is awaited. Do you despair of seeing relief (from difficulty)? Then where is Allaah, and where is destiny?

    - 27 -

    And the poet, al-Farazdaq said:

    ولما رأيت الأرض قد سدّ ظهرها ولم يك إلا بطنها لك مخرجاً
    دعوت الذي ناداه يونس بعدما ثوى في ثلاثٍ مظلمات ففرّجا

    "When you saw that the back of the earth had closed up (on you), and there remained for you nothing but the belly of the earth (i.e. death) as an exit, you called upon the One Whom Yunus (عليه السلام) called upon when he was thrown into three layers of darkness and thus was granted relief."

    - 28 -

    Abu `Amr ibn al-`Alaa said: "We were running away from Hajjaaj (ibn Yusuf) when I heard someone reciting this verse of poetry:

    ربما تكره النفوس من الأم رِ له فرجة كحلّ العقال

    "Many a time the souls dislike a matter, the relief of which is like the untying of the rope (around the neck of the camel)."

    I liked this verse of poetry very much and regarded it as a sign that relief is near, and I was still in this state when I heard someone shout: "Hajjaaj has died!" So I don't know which of the two gave me greater joy and happiness: the death of Hajjaaj, or that verse of poetry."

    Another poet says:

    عسى ما ترى أن لا يدوم وأن ترى له فرجاً مما ألمّ به الدهر
    عسى فرج يأتي به الله إنه له كلّ يومٍ في خليقته أمرُ
    إذا لاح عسر فارج يسراً فإنه قضى الله أن العسر يتبعه اليسر

    "Perhaps that (hardship) which you see will not remain, and you will see a relief from that which had caused pain for a time.

    Perhaps a relief will come from Allaah; He passes a Command every day among His creation.

    When hardship emerges, await easiness; for verily, it is the Decree of Allaah that hardship will always be followed up by ease."

    - 30 -

    Imaam ad-Daylami narrates in Musnad al-Firdows from Hadhrat Husain ibn `Ali رضي الله عنهما - in a Marfoo` form - that Sabr is the key to relief (from hardship).

    - 31 -

    Imaam Ahmad narrates in "az-Zuhd" from Hadhrat Abu-d Dardaa رضي الله عنه:

    إذا جاء أمر لا كفاء لك به فاصبر وانتظر الفرج من الله عزّ وجلّ

    "When a matter comes to you (i.e. a hardship) which you are not equal to, then await the relief from Allaah `Azza wa Jall."

    وأخرج المنذري في تاريخه عن محمد بن عبد الوارث بن جرير قال: كنا عند الحارث بن مسكين فأتاه على بن أبي القاسم بن محرز الكوفي المقري قال: رأيت عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه في النوم فقال: إذهب إلى الحارث فأقرئه السلام وقل له: يقضي بين الناس بأمارة أنك كنت في الحبس بالعراق, فقمت بالليل فعثرت فنكبت إصبعى فدعوت بذلك الدعاء فخليت في الغد, فقال له الحارث: صدقت, وهذا شيء ما اطّلع عليه أحد إلا الله تعالى, فقال له: فالدعاء ما هو؟ قال قلت: يَا صَاحِبِيْ عِنْدَ كُلِّ شِدَّةٍ, وَيَا غِيَاثِيْ عِنْدَ كُلِّ كُرْبَةٍ, صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ, وَاجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِيْ فَرَجاً وَمَخْرَجاً, فحدّثت بذلك إبنه أحمد بن الحارث فاستحسنه وكتبه عني

    Imaam al-Mundhiri narrates in his "Taareekh" from Muhammad ibn al-Waarith ibn Jareer, who said: We were with al-Haarith ibn Miskeen when `Ali ibn Abi-l Qaasim ibn Muhriz al-Kufi al-Muqri came to him and said: I saw (Hadhrat) `Umar ibn al-Khattaab رضي الله عنه in a dream, and he said: "Go to al-Haarith and convey (my) Salaam to him, and tell him that he should judge (i.e. act as the Qaadhi) between the people, with the sign that you (i.e. al-Haarith) had been in imprisonment in Iraq, and you stood up at night, and you tripped and injured your toes, and you called (upon Allaah Ta`aalaa) with that Du`aa, and you were freed in the morning." So al-Haarith said to him: "You have spoken the truth, and this is something which no one knew about except Allaah Ta`aalaa." So he said to him: "And what was the Du`aa?" He said: "I said to him:‘Yaa Saahibee `inda Kulli Shiddah, wa Yaa Ghiyaathee `inda Kulli Kurbah, Salli `alaa Muhammad wa `alaa Aali Muhammad, Waj`al lee min Amree Farajaw wa Makhrajaa.’ (O my Companion at every time of difficulty; O the One Whom I call upon in every calamity; send salutations upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, and make for me a relief and way out from this affair (i.e. difficulty) of mine.”

    I narrated that to his son, Ahmad ibn al-Haarith, so he liked it and wrote it down from me.”

    وأخرج الدينوري في المجالسة عن عبد الجبار بن كليب قال: كنا مع إبراهيم بن أدهم رضي الله عنه في سفر فعرض لنا الأسد فقال إبراهيم: قولوا: اللهُمًّ احْرُسْنَا بِعَيْنِكَ الَّتِيْ لَا تَنَامُ, وَاحْفَظْنَا بِرُكْنِكَ الَّذِيْ لَا يُرَامُ, وَارْحَمْنَا بِقُدْرَتِكَ عَلَيْنَا, لَا نَهْلِكُ وَأَنْتَ رَجَاؤُنَا يَا اللهُ يَا اللهُ يَا اللهُ, قال: فولّى الله الأسد عنا, قال: وأنا أدعو به عند كلّ مخوف فما رأيت إلا خيراً

    And ad-Deenawri narrates in al-Mujaalasah from `Abdul Jabbaar ibn Kulaib, who said: We were with Ibraaheem ibn Ad-ham رضي الله عنه on a journey when a lion blocked our path, so Ibraaheem said: Say: 'Allaahummah-rusnaa bi-`Aynikallatee laa Tanaam, Wah-fazhnaa bi-Ruknikalladhee laa Yuraam, War-hamnaa bi-Qudratika `Alaynaa, laa Nahliku wa anta Rajaa'unaa, Yaa Allaah, Yaa Allaah, Yaa Allaah.' (O Allaaah, guard us with Your Eyes which do not sleep, and protect us with Your Support which does not depart, and have mercy upon us by Your Power over us. We will not be destroyed so long as You are our hope, O Allaah, O Allaah, O Allaah.)

    He said: So the lion left. He said: "So I have made this Du`aa at every time of fear and have not seen anything (as a result) except goodness."

    وذكر أبو بكر محمد بن الوليد الطرطوشي في كتاب الدعاء عن مطرف بن عبد الله بن مصعب المدني قال: دخلت على المنصور فرأيته مغموماً فقال لي: يا مطرف طرقني من الهم ما لا يكشفه إلا الله فهل من دعاء أدعو به عسى يكشفه الله عني؟ قلت: يا أمير المؤمنين, حدثني محمد بن ثابت عن عمرو بن ثابت البصري قال: دخلت في أذن رجل من أهل البصرة بعوضة حتى دخلت إلى صماخه فأنصبته وأسهرته, فقال له رجل من أصحاب الحسن البصري: أدع بدعاء العلاء بن الحضرمي صاحب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم الذي دعا به في المفازة وفي البحر فخلصه الله تعالى. قال: وما هو؟ قال: بعث العلاء بن الحضرمي إلى البحرين اسم مكان فسلكوا مفازة, وعطشوا عطشاً شديداً حتى خافوا الهلاك فنزل فصلى ركعتين ثم قال: يَاحَكِيْمُ يَاعَلِيْمُ يَاعَلِيُّ يَاعَظِيْمُ اسْقِنَا, فجاءت سحابة فأمطرت حتى ملأوا الآنية وسقوا الركاب, ثم انطلقوا إلى خليج من البحر ما خيض قبل ذلك اليوم فلم يجدوا سفناً, فصلى ركعتين ثم قال: يَاحَكِيْمُ يَاعَلِيْمُ يَاعَلِيُّ يَاعَظِيْمُ أَجِرْنَا, ثم أخذ بعنان فرسه ثم قال: جوزوا باسم الله, قال أبو هريرة: فمشينا على الماء فوالله ما ابتل لنا قدم ولا خف ولا حافر, وكان الجيش أربعة آلاف. فدعا الرجل بها فوالله ما خرجنا حتى خرجت من أذنه لها طنين حتى صكّت الحائط وبرأ, فاستقبل المنصور القبلة ودعا بهذا الدعاء ساعة ثم انصرف بوجهه إليّ وقال: يا مطرّف قد كشف الله عني ما كنت أجده من الهم

    Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn al-Waleed at-Tartooshi mentions in "Kitaab ad-Du`aa", from Mutarrif ibn `Abdillaah ibn Mus`ab al-Madani, who said: I entered upon (the Khaleefah) al-Mansoor, and I saw him burdened with sorrows. He said to me: "O Mutarrif, I have been afflicted with such worries which none but Allaah is able to remove. Is there any Du`aa which I can make by which Allaah will remove (these worries and this anxiety) from me?" I said: "O Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen, Muhammad ibn Thaabit narrated to me from `Amr ibn Thaabit al-Basri, who said: A mosquito entered the ear of a man from the people of Basrah, (so it started to bother him) and tired him out and gave him sleepless nights. A man from the companions of Hasan al-Basri said to him: "Make the Du`aa of al-`Alaa al-Hadhrami, the companion of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم. The Du`aa he made on land and on sea, (and through which) Allaah Ta`aalaa would take him out (from the difficulty)." He asked: "And what is it (this Du`aa)?" He said: "al-`Alaa ibn al-Hadhrami was sent to al-Bahrain - the name of a certain place - and so they (he and the Muslim army with him) passed by a desert, and they suffered severe thirst, so much so that they thought they would perish. He (Hadhrat `Alaa ibn al-Hadhrami) performed two Rak`ats of Salaah and then said: 'Yaa Hakeemu Yaa `Aleemu Yaa `Aliyyu Yaa `Azheem, Asqinaa' (O Most Wise, O All-Knowing, O Most High, O Most Mighty, grant us water.) So a cloud came and rained until they filled their containers and they and their animals drank. Thereafter, they went to the shore of a sea into which no one had waded prior to that day, and they found no ships (by which to traverse it). Thus, he (Hadhrat `Alaa ibn al-Hadhrami رضي الله عنه) performed two Rak`ats of Salaah and then said: 'Yaa Hakeemu Yaa `Aleemu Yaa `Aliyyu Yaa `Azheem, Ajirnaa' (O Most Wise, O All-Knowing, O Most High, O Most Mighty, save us.) Thereafter, he took hold of the reins of his horse and said: "Cross, with the Name of Allaah!" Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه said: "So we walked upon the water, and Wallaahi (By Allaah), not a single foot, or Khuff (leather sock), or hoof became wet, and the army numbered 4,000." So, the man (who was affected by the mosquito) made this Du`aa, and Wallaahi (By Allaah) we had not left but the mosquito came out from his ear, buzzing, until it knocked into the wall and he (the man) recovered. (Hearing this narration), al-Mansoor faced the Qiblah and made this Du`aa for a while, and thereafter he turned to face me and said: "O Mutarrif, Allaah has removed from me the worries which I had been experiencing."

    وفي الصحيح وغيره أن أعرابية كانت تخدم نساء النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وكانت كثيراً ما تقول:

    ويوم الوشاح من تعاجيب ربنا على أنه من ظلمة الكفر أنجاني

    فسألتها عائشة عن ذلك فقالت: شهدت عروساً لنا تجلى ودخلت مغتسلا وعليها وشاح فوضعته, فجاءت الحديّا فأخذته ففقدوه فاتهموني به ففتشوني حتى قبلي, فدعوت الله أن يبرأني, فجاءت الحديّا بالوشاح حتى ألقته بيهم

    وفي رواية: فرفع رأسي وقلت: يا غياث المستغيثين

    And in as-Saheeh and other than it, it is mentioned that there was an Arab woman who was a bedouin, and who used to serve the wives of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم. Very frequently she used to say (this verse of poetry):

    ويوم الوشاح من تعاجيب ربنا على أنه من ظلمة الكفر أنجاني

    "The Day of the Scarf was from the Wonders of our Rabb, that from the darkness of Kufr, He saved me."

    Hadhrat `Aa'ishah رضي الله عنها asked her concerning this, so she said: "(One day), I witnessed a bride of ours removing her garments and entering into the place of bathing, and she had been wearing a scarf which she placed down (before entering). A kite came along and took it, so they (the people, later on) searched for it and couldn't find it, so they accused me (of stealing it). Thus, they searched me, even my private parts, so I made Du`aa to Allaah to exonerate me (from this blame), so the kite came with the scarf and threw it among them.

    In another narration, it appears: "So I raised my head and said: 'Yaa Ghiyaathal Mustagheetheen' (O Help of those who seek for help)."

    Imaam al-Bayhaqi narrates in Fadhaa'il al-A`maal from Hammaad ibn Salamah, that `Aasim ibn Abi Is-haaq - the Shaykh of the Qurraa' during his time - said: "I was afflicted by poverty, so I went to one of my brothers and informed him of my state of affairs, and I saw some dislike in his face. Thus, I left his house and went to the graveyard. There, I performed Salaah as much as Allaah Ta`aalaa willed, then placed my forehead on the ground and said:

    يَامُسَبِّبَ الْأَسْبَابِ يَامُفَتِّحَ الْأَبْوَابِ وَيَاسَامِعَ الْأَصْوَاتِ يَامُجِيْبَ الدَّعْوَاتِ يَاقَاضِيَ الْحَاجَاتِ أَكْفِنِيْ بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَاغْنِنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

    Yaa Musabbib al-Asbaab, Yaa Mufattihal Abwaab, wa Yaa Saami`al Aswaat, Yaa Mujeebad Da`waat, Yaa Qaadhiyal Haajaat, Akfinee bi-Halaalika `an Haraamik, Waghninee bi-Fadhlika `amman Siwaak.

    (O Creator of causes, O Opener of all doors, O Hearer of all voices, O Answerer of all supplications, O Granter of requests; let those things which You have made Halaal suffice me from those things which You have made Haraam, and grant me independence - by Your Bounty - from all those besides You.)

    He says: Wallaahi (By Allaah), I had not yet raised my head but I heard something fall near to me. I looked up and saw that it was a kite, and it had thrown down a red pouch. I picked up the pouch and found inside it 80 Dinars (gold coins) and a gem wrapped up in cloth. I exchanged the gem for a great deal of money, and from the Dinars I bought a property, and I praised Allaah Ta`aalaa for that."

    Imaam Abu Na`eem narrates in al-Hilyah, from Yahyaa ibn `Abdil Hameed al-Himmaani, who said: I was in a Majlis (gathering) of Sufyaan ibn `Uyaynah, and approximately 1,000 people gathered around him. At the end of the Majlis, he turned towards a man who was sitting on his right side and said to him, "Stand up and narrate to the people the story of the snake." The man said: "Give me something to recline against." So we reclined him against something. His eyelids rose, and he said: "Take note. Listen and comprehend. My father narrated to me from my grandfather, that there was a man who was known as Muhammad ibn Himyar, and he was a pious man who used to fast the days and stand in Salaah at night, and he was a man who was very skilful in hunting with the bow. One day, he went out hunting, and he came across a snake. The snake said to him: "O Muhammad ibn Himyar, save me, may Allaah save you." He said to the snake: "(Save you) from whom?" The snake said: "From an enemy of mine who is looking for me." He said to it: "Where is this enemy of yours?" The snake said: "Behind me." He said to it: "Which Ummah are you from?" It said: "From the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. We testify that there is no Ilaah except Allaah." He said: "So I opened my cloak and said to it, enter inside of it." The snake said: "My enemy will see me." He said: "I opened my garments and said: Enter between my garments and my stomach." The snake said: "My enemy will see me." I said to it: "What should I do with you, then?" It said: "If you wish to do good, then open your mouth so that I may flow into it." He said: "I fear that you will kill me." The snake said: "No, by Allaah, I will not kill you. Allaah is a Witness upon me with regards to that, and so are His Malaa'ikah, and His Ambiyaa, and the Bearers of His `Arsh (Throne), and the inhabitants of His Heavens, were I to kill you." I was thus contented with the oath it had taken, so I opened my mouth and it flowed inside. I then carried on and a man bumped into me, and with him was a Samsaamah (certain kind of sword). He said to me, "O Muhammad!" I asked him: "What do you want?" He asked: "Have you encountered my enemy? I asked: "And who is your enemy?" He said: "A snake." I said: "O Allaah, no." So I sought Istighfaar from my Rabb 100 times for saying that despite knowing where the snake is. Thereafter, I carried on for a little while, when suddenly the snake put its head out of my mouth and said: "Look and see if this enemy has passed." I looked and did not see anyone. I said: "I don't see anyone. If you intend to leave, then leave." It said: "Now, O Muhammad, choose one of two choices: Either I rip up your liver, or I pierce your heart and leave you without a Rooh." I said: "Sub-haanallaah! Where is the pledge which you had taken with me and the oath which you took? How quickly you have forgotten them!" It said: "O Muhammad, why have you forgotten the enmity which exists between me and your father, Aadam, since I led him astray and took him out from the paradise? How can you intend to do good to other than its people (i.e. people who are not deserving of good)?" I said to it: "Is it necessary for you to kill me?" It said: "It is necessary." I said to it: "Then give me a little while so that I can go to the bottom of this mountain and prepare a place for myself?" It said: "Go ahead." Muhammad (ibn Himyar) said: "So I carried on, intending to head to the mountain and I had despaired of life. I raised my eyes to the heavens and said:

    يَالَطِيْفُ يَالَطِيْفُ يَالَطِيْفُ أُلْطُفْ بِيْ بِلُطْفِكَ الخَفِيِّ يَالَطِيْفُ, بِالْقُدْرَةِ الّتِيْ اسْتَوَيْتَ بِهَا عَلَى الْعَرْشِ فَلَمْ يَعْلَمِ الْعَرْشُ أَيْنَ مُسْتَقَرُّكَ مِنْهُ إِلّا كَفَيْتَنِيْ هَذِهِ الحَيَّةَ

    Yaa Lateef, Yaa Lateef, Yaa Lateef, Ultuf bee bi-Lutfikal Khafiyy, Yaa Lateef, bil-Qudratillatis-tawayta bihaa `alal `Arsh fa-lam Ya`lamil `Arshu Ayna Mustaqarruka minhu, illaa Kafaytanee Haadhihil Hayyah.

    (O One Who is most subtle and most kind, O One Who is most subtle and most kind, O One Who is most subtle and most kind, confer Your most subtle kindness upon me, O One Who is most subtle and most kind, by the Power through which You had Istiwaa over the `Arsh, and the `Arsh did not know where You are with regards to it, I ask that You suffice me from this snake." Thereafter, I continued walking and a man bumped into me who was clean in body and had a pleasant scent. He said to me, "Salaamun `Alayk." I said: "Wa `Alaykas Salaam, brother." He asked me: "Why do I see that your colour has changed?" I said: "Because of an enemy that has wronged me." He asked: "And where is your enemy?" I said: "In my stomach." He said to me: "Open your mouth." I opened it, and he placed something inside which was like the leaf of an olive tree, green, and then he said: "Chew and swallow." I chewed and swallowed, and very shortly thereafter, my stomach started to pain, and it (the snake) moved around in my stomach, and I began to vomit it out, piece by piece." I hugged the man and said: "Brother, who are you, that Allaah has favoured me through you?" He laughed and then said, "Do you not recognise me?" I said, "O Allaah, no." He said, "O Muhammad ibn Himyar, when the incident that took place between you and the snake happened, and you called upon Allaah Ta`aalaa with that Du`aa, the Malaa'ikah of the seven heavens called out to Allaah `Azza wa Jall, and He said: "By My Honour and My Majesty, and by My Generosity and My Loftiness in the Loftiness of My Place, I have seen everything which the snake did with My slave." Allaah Sub-haanahu wa Ta`aalaa then commanded me, and I am known as al-Ma`roof (the one of goodness), and I live in the fourth heaven, that: 'Go to Jannah, take from it a green leaf, and take it to My slave, Muhammad ibn Himyar.' O Muhammad ibn Himyar, always do good (to others), because it saves one from an evil death, and (know that) even if (the good you have done) is lost to the one to whom it was done, it is not lost to Allaah `Azza wa Jall."

    Imaam ibn an-Najjaar narrates in his Taareekh with his chain of narrators, from Hadhrat Anas رضي الله عنه, that he said: I was sitting with (Hadhrat) `Aa'ishah (رضي الله عنها), giving her the glad-tidings of exoneration from blame, and she said: By Allaah, both near and far ones had deserted me, so much so that even the cats had deserted me. No food or drink was presented to me, so I was sitting, and I was hungry, so I saw in my dream a youngster, and he said to me: "What is wrong with you?" I said: "I am sad because of what the people have said." He said: "Call upon Allaah with this Du`aa, and He will grant you relief." I asked: "And what is it?" He said: "Say:

    يَاسَابِغَ النِعَمِ, وَيَادَافِعَ النِقَمِ, وَيَافَارِجَ الغُمَمِ, وَيَا كَاشِفَ الظُلَمِ, وَيَا أَعْدَلَ مَنْ حَكَمَ, وَيَا حِسِيْبَ مَنْ ظَلَمَ, وَيَا وَلِيَّ مَنْ ظُلِمَ, وَيَا أَوَّلاً بِلَا بِدَايَةٍ, وَيَا آخِرَ بِلَا نِهَايَةٍ, وَيَا مَنْ لَهُ اسْمٌ بِلَا كُنْيَةٍ, إِجْعَلْ لِيْ مِنْ أَمْرِيْ فَرَجاً وَمَخْرَجاً,

    Yaa Saabighan Ni`am, wa Yaa Daafi`an Niqam, wa Yaa Faarijal Ghumam, wa Yaa Kaashifazh Zhulam, wa Yaa A`dala man Hakam, wa Yaa Haseeba man Zhalam, wa Yaa Waliyya man Zhulim, wa Yaa Awallan bilaa Bidaayah, wa Yaa Aakhiram bilaa Nihaayah, wa Yaa Man Lahus-mun bilaa Kunyah, Ij`al lee min Amree Farajaw wa Makhrajaa.

    (O One Who pours down favours; O Repeller of harms; O Reliever from all sorrows; O Dispeller of all darkness; O Most Just of all who judge; O Reckoner of the one who oppresses; O Helper of the one who is oppressed; O One Who is First without a beginning; O One Who is the Last without an end; O One Who has a Name without an agnomen: Make for me a relief and a way out from this affair of mine."

    She said: "So I awoke, and I was full, and my thirst was quenched, and Allaah Ta`aalaa had sent down my relief (i.e. exonerated me from the accusations)."
