Dangers and troubles keep coming in human life. Trouble comes in the life of every Muslim and non-Muslim. Today’s article highlights some of the best dua narrated in the Qur’an-Sunnah that every Muslim should always recite However, the status of a believer in danger is different. The Prophet (saw) said:

“The condition of the believer is very wonderful! Every condition of his is good for him. And this is only for the believers. The believer gives thanks to Allah in happiness and prosperity so that he gets welfare (i.e. reward). He is patient when faced with adversity and danger. This is also good for him (i.e. sins are forgiven)” (Muslim)

In all cases, it is important for believers to believe in their hearts that everything is by the command of Allah. He alone can save us from any calamity. He is the sole owner of peace and security. In the Holy Quran, Allah says,

“Every calamity that befalls you on earth is recorded before it happens. That is easy for Allah. This is so that you may not be saddened by what you have lost, nor be overjoyed at what He has given you. Allah does not love the arrogant ones.” (Quran-57:22-23)

Therefore, in all situations of life, a Muslim should do these deeds-

  • Keeping faith in destiny in mind and having firm faith in destiny.
  • Tawakkul or reliance on Allah.
  • To return to Allah through repentance and forgiveness.
  • To pay attention to the best dua narrated in the Qur’an-Sunnah.
