A Dua'

‘O Allaah, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being over powered by men.’

  1. Indeed a very very nice Dua which gives a lot of strength and satisfaction when recited. If we think for a moment, the major problems of the human race or a particular community are listed in this Dua and Allah's refuge has been asked.
    Anxiety and sorrow are the problems of almost everyone in day today life. We become anxious and sad with even small worries or losses of this world. Miserliness has led the increase in poverty in the whole world. This miserliness has caused deaths of farmers in India on one hand and the entire economic crisis in the whole world on the other. Cowardice in terms of facing the truth, fighting injustice and spreading Allah's word is also another challenge which we and our Ummah face. Burden of debts has spoiled and destroyed number of families; more prominently in the recent times. The recent shooting in New York and other parts of USA and rest of the world is another example of these burden of debts. These burden of debts has lead to the humanitarian crisis in almost complete Africa and parts of Asia and South America. And last one which is the mother of all problems is the rule of humans and not the Creator. As the engineer knows when his machine will work best and when it will perform worst,in the same manner Allah only knows how His creation will work best and gain peace. So, it is must that His commandments should be followed and implemented.
