While you cannot avoid an affliction in life, the Musibat Ke Waqt Ki Dua (prayer to be recited at the time of hardship) will at least give you the courage and power to cope with it and come out victorious... Read More...
If it were possible, Allah’s most beloved human being on earth – the Rasool (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) – would have led the most peaceful life, totally free of difficulties.
The verse 4 of chapter 90 (Surah Al-Balad) of the Holy Quran says:
“We have certainly created man into hardship (affliction).”
When Hazrat Adam (Peace be upon him) had suffered a lot for committing the greatest sin of disobeying Almighty Allah in the Jannah (Heaven), Allah taught him a prayer. It was a Dua to beseech the Creator to forgive his sin. That prayer too is given in the Noble Quran in verse 23 of chapter 7 (Surah Al-A’raf). Here is its translation:
“They said, "Our Lord (Almighty), we have wronged ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers.”
Resultantly, the Most Merciful Lord (Azawajal) accepted their (Adam and Eve’s) prayer and forgave their sins. Today Muslims do a rehearsal of this prayer when they find themselves in a difficult situation.
The Musibat Ke Waqt Ki Dua has been taken from the Last Divine Scripture (Al-Quran). These are two verses (156 and 157) from Surah Al-Baqarah (chapter 2). It is also the longest Surah of the Noble Quran.
In the Urdu section of the post, the prayer is given in Arabic text along with Urdu translation. Below you can read its English translation.
“Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah (Azawajal), and indeed to Him we will return. Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord (Almighty) and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided (people).”
