I tend to get stressed out very easily. And because of that I often get anxiety attacks leaving me sick and unable to sleep. Is there any specific dua for anxiety?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
In this world of means, we have to adopt means to fulfill our needs and overcome our challenges. We then make Dua to Allah to put Barakah in the means we have adopted and to make the means successful and effective. Your anxiety attack due to stress is a medical condition. You should consult your physician and follow his/her advise.
Reading Tasbeeh- Faatimi after every Fardh Salaah is very effective against stress and anxiety.
Tasbeeh- Faatimi is to recite:
• 33 times Subhan’Allah( Pure is Allah)
• 33 times Alhamdulillah(All praise is due to Allah)
• 34 times Allahu Akbar( Allah is the greatest)
Thereafter make Dua to Allah for your needs.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
