Supplication for Calamities

Posted on June 5, 2014


It is narrated on the authority of Umm Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her) that she said: I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam say: “There is no Muslim struck with a calamity and says what Allah has commanded, 

إِنّا للهِ وَإِنَا إِلَـيْهِ راجِعـون ، اللهُـمِّ اْجُـرْني في مُصـيبَتي، وَاخْلُـفْ لي خَيْـراً مِنْـها 

innaa lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji’oon. Allaahumma`jurnee fee museebatee wa akhluf lee khayran minhaa

(To Allah we belong, and to Him we return. O Allah reward me for my calamity and give me something better than it)

except that Allah will replace it with something better.” 
[Muslim 2126]
