Adhkar for Alleviating Calamaties

Every individual should make a point of reciting this at times of difficulty.

A recommendation is to stipulate a daily amount to be recited, e.g. 50/100/200 times.

Come Home to Allah

When your weary body finds solace upon the earth’s embrace,
And your head rests in tranquil grace,
Whisper Subhana Rabbi al a’la, in whispers so profound,
For your Lord alone to hear the sacred sound.

It is Allah, welcoming you home, His embrace so wide,
For it’s been a while since you last came to His side.
It is Allah, speaking to you, His words profound and true,
Did We not find you lost, and guide you too?

So, why not be grateful, in every prayer you make,
For Allah is with us, make no mistake.
It is Allah, comforting you in times of despair,
Do not be sad, for I am always there.

It is Allah, the Divine Healer of your pain,
Verily, with hardship, ease will follow, like gentle rain.
So, why not be patient, in every trial you face,
For in your Sujood, you’ll find your sacred space.

As you pour your heart out in prostration so deep,
Sharing your aching limbs, and secrets you keep,
Your Lord will reply, with love in His voice,
“Come home, my dear, in My embrace, rejoice.

Come home, and you will find healing’s embrace,
Come home, and you’ll be loved, in My endless grace,
Come home, and you’ll be nourished, heart and soul,
And you’ll wonder why you left, as the seasons roll.”

Supplication of the Traveller for the Resident

أَسْتَوْدِعُكُمُ اللهَ الَّذِيْ لَا تَضِيْعُ وَدَائِعُهُ

Astawdiʿukumu-llāha-lladhī lā taḍīʿu wadā’iʿuh.

I leave you in the care of Allah, who does not allow anything entrusted to Him to be lost.

Abū Hurayrah (radiy Allāhū ‘anhu) said: “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ bid me farewell and said [the above].”

Dua for Iftar

When breaking the fast – Iftar
اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ امنْتُ [وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ] وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ
O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You [and I put my trust in You] and I break my fast with Your sustenance.
[“wa ‘alayka tawakkaltu” is quoted in some books of knowledge – but not all, hence it is in brackets]
[Abu Dawud]

Transliteration:
Allahumma Inni laka sumtu wa bika amantu [wa alayka tawakkalto] wa ‘ala rizqika aftartu

O Allah, fill my heart with light and increase the strength of my hearing, my sight and my memory.

Dua for Driving in slippery conditions

Du’a for driving in slippery conditions:

‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has quoted a Scholar from the past to have suggested the following du’a for protection against ones conveyance skidding/slipping:

‎إنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولا

“InnAllaha yumsikus samawati wal arda an tazoola”

Translation: “Indeed Allah Ta’ala is the One who keeps the heavens and the earth from moving/shaking.”

The full incident:
Muhadith Ibrahim ibn Isma’il (rahimahullah) narrates that his father mentioned:

I was on a journey from Harran to Al-Musil during the season of winter, mud and rainfall. Many people’s camels were falling, and people were facing severe harsh conditions. I feared for myself, knowing well my feeble state. I went to sleep for a bit and I heard someone saying ‘Should I not teach you something if you read it your camel will not fall and you will be safe?’ I said ‘Of course and may you be rewarded.’ So he said to me, say:

‎ إنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولا
I recited it and my camel never faltered or fell until we reached Al-Musil. Other people incurred a lot of damage due to their camels falling whilst what I had was saved.
(Al-Ibtihaj, bi adhkaril musafiri wal haaj)

This du’a is quite apt and is derived from Ayah: 41 in Surah: 35

Recite frequently when driving in bad weather.

Note: I read the above dua yesterday when returning from Darul Uloom.

Others were slipping on the hills but Alhmadulillah I managed to get home without any problems.

I also read

اللهمً اني اعوذ بك من ان أضِلّ أو اُضَلّ او ازل او ازل او اظلم او اظلم او اجهل او يجهل علي

Allahumma Inni aoozu bika Min an adhilla aw udhalla, aw azilla aw uzalla, aw adhlima aw udhlama, aw aj’hala aw ujhala alayya’

Trans: “Ya Allah! I seek Your protection from slipping or being made to slip by someone , from going astray or being led astray by someone, from being unjust or being dealt with unjustly, from being ignorant or ignorance being shown to me”

My Hazrat, mawlana Yusuf Motala Saheb said “The word slipping includes both; metaphorical meaning as well as the literal one”

May Allah protect us from all slipping in icy conditions and slipping in deen.

Imam Abu Hanifa Rahmatullahi alayhi said to a young boy: “Be careful! Don’t slip” He replied: “You should be more careful imam saheb! If I slip it will only be me. But if you slip then the whole world will slip.” May Allah elevate imam Saheb’s ranks in Jannah. Ameen.
