Dear muslims one of the ways we can overcome stress as well. Is to make specific duas that our prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us. Time is limited, i will go over the duas very quickly in arabic and the recording will be available on youtube.
You can go back and listen to these duas and then make them yourself. We’ll go over a few duas that the process some specifically mentioned to say at times of stress. The first to them reported in tiirmidhi. That our prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to say when we are stressed out,
يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ أَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ وَلا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرَفَةَ عَيْنٍ
Ya hayyu ya qayyum bi rahmatika astagith aslih li sha ni kullahu wa la takilni ila nafsi tarfat ayn
I appeal to your mercy to help me. Oh Allah do not leave me to myself. Not even for a millisecond. Oh Allah do not leave me to myself even
For a millisecond. Means i need your help, and correct all of my affairs make all of my affairs easy. This is the first to dua and again as i said you can listen to the recording and write it down later on insha’allah.
The second dua that he taught us. Is that which anas ibn malik says that the vbi appeal to your mercy to help me. Prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us this dua.
اللهُمَّ لا سَهْلَ إلا مَا جَعَلتَهُ سَهْلا وَ أنتَ تَجْعَلُ الحزْنَ إذا شِئْتَ سَهْلا
Allahumma la sahla illa maa ja’altahu sahlan, wa Anta taj’alu l-hazna idha shi’ta sahla
Oh Allah nothing is easy, except if you have made it easy. Nothing is easy, except what you make easy and oh Allah if you want, you can change my grief into. That which is easy. So oh Allah change my grief into that. Which is ease for me.
This is the second dua that our prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam taught us. And the final one that we’ll mention because time is limited.
This is a beautiful it’s a very long one. That our prophet sam explicitly taught this dua and he taught it like the sahabah said as he would teach a verse from the quran. And it’s a very long dua, and it begins as follows.
That our prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, never does a servant feel anxiety Or feel stress and he makes this dua except that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala will get rid of his anxiety. And change his stress for something that Will be a source of happiness.
Can you imagine we’re literally being handed on a silver platter a gold platter more expensive than gold. We are literally being told. Never does a Servant of Allah make this dua, when he’s stressed out except that Allah will change that stress and convert into a time of happiness. A time of ease this is literally the beginning and end of the hadith.
What is the dua, it’s a long dua
اللِّهُمَّ إنِّي عَبْدُكَ ، ابْنُ عَبْدِكَ ، ابْنُ أَمَتِكَ ، نَاصِيَتِي بِيَدِكَ ، مَاضِ فِيَّ حُكْمُكَ ، عَدْلٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ ، أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ ، سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ ، أَوْ أنْزَلْتَهُ فِي كِتَاَبِكَ ، أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِكَ ، أَوِ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِي عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ ، أنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ رَبِيعَ قَلْبِي ، وَ نُورَ صَدْرِي ، وَ جَلاءَ حُزْنِي
Allahumma inni ‘abduka, ibnu ‘abdika, ibnu amatika, naasiyati biyadika, maadhin fiyya hukumuka, ‘adhlun fiyya qadha’uka asaluka bi kulli ismin huwa laka, sammaita bihi nafsaka, aw an-zaltahu fi kitabika, aw ‘allamtahu ahadan min khalqika, awista’tharta bihi fi ‘ilmil-ghaibi ‘indaka, an taj’alal-Qur’ ana Rabbi’a qalbi, wa nura sadri, wa jalaa’a huzni,
Its a long dua and its basically summarizes that, we ask Allah who controls everything, we ask Allah by the one who has sent down names to his servants,
And chosen names for himself that he has not revealed to his creation, we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala by every single name of his that he makes the quran a source of happiness for our souls,. And a source of enlightenment for our eyes, so we ask Allah through the quran to bring us happiness. The prophet shallallahu said whoever makes this dua Allah will substitute his grief and his anxiety and convert it into a source of happiness.
The sahaba said o messenger of Allah shouldn’t we memorize this dua and our prophet salallahu said, yes!
Whoever hears this should memorize this dua. So now you have heard this dua. It is reported in muslim imam ahmed and also the sahih ibn authentic hadith. So memorize this dua.
It’s the beautiful dua that is said at times of stress.
Dear muslims we are all under stress during this pandemic, turn to Allah subhanahu watala make dua to Allah (azzawajal) and be optimistic that.
Insha’allah the source of grief and will be substituted quickly swiftly with a source of happiness and peace.
