the good wherever it be and cause me to be pleased therewith.

O Allah ! I seek Your protection from worry and grief, and I
seek Your protection from weakness and laziness, and I seek
Your protection from miserliness and cowardice and I seek Your
protection from the burden of debt and the anger of men.

O Allah ! You are my Lord, other than You there is no God.
It is upon You that I have faith and You are the lord of the
Mighty Throne. Whatever Allah has wished has happened
and whatever He has not wished will certainly not happen.


76
Without the assistance of Allah , we cannot save ourselves
from any evil nor can we acquire any good. I am sure that Allah
has power over everything and verily the knowledge of Allah
encompasses everything.
O Allah I seek refuge in You from the evil of myself and the
evil of all the living upon whom You have control. Verily, my
Lord is on the right path.

Virtue

Someone came to tell Hadhrat Abu Darda that his house was on
fire. Hadhrat Abu Darda [without any concern] replied that his
was certainly not on fire. Allah will never do so, because I have
heard from the Messenger of Allah that if a person recites these
words at the beginning of the day, no calamities will befall that
person till the evening, and if the person recites these words in the
evening then no calamities will befall that person till the morning.

In another tradition, it is stated that calamities will not befall
him, wife, children and whatever he owns.
Hadhrat Abu Darda said: “In the morning I recited these
words, therefore, how can my house be on fire.” He then
said to the people. “Let's go and see.” Together with the
people they went to wards his house. It was seen that his
entire street was on fire and all the houses around Hadhrat
Abu Darda’s were burnt, but, amidst this, his house was
safe and sound. (Al-Azkaar-Nawawi, Pg. 79)

O Allah , divert my restlessness in the grave into peace. O
Allah let me receive Your mercy by means of the Holy
Quraan Shareef and make it my guide as well as a source of
light, guidance and grace for me. O Allah , revive my memory
of whatever I have forgotten from the Holy Quraan, grant me
understanding of whatever part of it I know not, enable me to
recite it during hours of day and night and make it my main
argumentative support (in all matters), O Nourisher of the
worlds.
