Dua in the time of sorrow


Is there any duas to be recited when one is worried and depressed?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Take note of the following Hadith and the Du’aa of Rasulullaah (salallaahu ῾alayhi wasallam)

كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَدْعُو عِنْدَ الْكَرْبِ يَقُولُ

“لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ الْعَظِيمُ الْحَلِيمُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ”

Transliteration:-La ilaha illa Allah Al-’Azim, Al-’Halim, la ilaha illa Allah, Rabbul ‘arshil ‘Azim, la ilaha illa Allahu, Rabbus-Samawati wa rabbul ardi wa rabbul ‘arshi karim

:Translation:-Whenever Prophet salallahu alayh wasallam would face distress he would recite
“There is no deity except Allah, The Mighty and Forbearing; There is no deity except Allah, Lord of the skies and the Earth and the Lord of the Mighty Throne


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

  1. Aslama alaikum,

    I am newly married woman and I found out that my husband does not perform salahs regularly. He says that it’s way difficult for him to pray fajr as it disturbs him coming back to bed and falling asleep easily. He prays occasionally with me when I encourage him. My husband is hard working and very nice person. Sometimes I cry because I wish he prayed regularly and read the Quran.
    I heard if a person doesn’t pray salah is kufar now I also skiped some prays howver I have been trying to salah on time regular.
    I want to improve my relationship with Allah SWT and be close to Him, however if my husband does not perform salah as it should be shall I leave him? what can I do at this moment?
