Du’a to Remove Distress

The Du’a to Remove Distress

In the Name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
All praise and thanks are due to Allāh, May Allāh blessings and peace be upon His Messenger.

Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallāhu`anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallāhu 'alaihi wa sallam) used to say, when he felt distressed: 

“Lā ilāha ill-Allāh al-‘Azīm ul-Halīm, Lā ilāha ill-Allāh Rabb il-‘Arsh il-‘Azīm, Lā ilāha ill-Allāh Rabb is-Samawāti wa Rabb il-Ard wa Rabb il-‘arsh il-Karīm"

(There is no god except Allah, the All-Mighty, the Forbearing; there is no god except Allah, the Lord of the Mighty Throne; there is no god except Allah, Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth and Lord of the noble Throne) 

[Al-Bukhari, Muslim]

Anas Ibn Malik (radiallāhu`anhu) reported that the Prophet (Sallallāhu 'alaihi wa sallam) used to say, when something upset him:
“Yā Hayyu yā Qayyūm, bi Rahmatika astaghīth"

  (O Ever-Living One, O Everlasting One, by Your mercy I seek help)

[Al-Bukhari, Muslim]

Asmā’ bint ‘Umays (radiallāhu`anha) reported The Messenger of Allāh (Sallallāhu 'alaihi wa sallam) said to her: “Shall I not teach you some words to say when you feel distressed: 

“Allāh, Allāh, Rabbī lā ushriku bihi shay’an"

(Allah, Allah, my Lord, I do not associate anything with Him).

[Al-Bukhari, Muslim]

It was reported from ‘Abdallāh ibn Mas’ūd (radiallāhu`anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallāhu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: “No person suffers any anxiety or grief, and says:

“Allāhumma innī ‘abduka wa ibn ‘abdika wa ibn amatika, nāsiyati bi yadika, mādin fiyya hukmuka, ‘adlun fiyya qadā’uka, as’aluka bi kulli ismin huwa laka sammayta bihi nafsaka aw anzaltahu fi kitābika aw ‘allamtahu ahadan min khalqika aw ista’tharta bihi fi ‘ilm il-ghaybi ‘andak an taj’ala al-Qur’āna rabī’ qalbi wa nūr sadri wa jalā’a huzni wa dhahāba hammi"

(O Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your slave, son of Your female slave, my forelock is in Your hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every Name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety)

But Allah will take away his sorrow and grief, and give him in their stead joy.”

[Al-Bukhari, Muslim]
