Dua for Relief from Pain & Suffering


  • Hazrat Abu Bakar (Rz) reported that, The Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: The supplications to be used by one who is distressed are:

«اللَّهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أَرْجُو، فَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ، وَأَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ»

Allahumma rahmataka arju, fala takilni ila nafsi tarfata ain, wa as’leh li sha’ni kullahu, la ilaha illa Ant.

Translation:  O Allah, it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshipped except You. (Abu Dawood).

  • Ibn ‘Abbas reported that Allah’s Apostle (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to supplicate during the time of trouble (in these words):

«لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ العَظِيْمُ الحَلِيْمُ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ العَرْشِ العَظِيمُ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَرَبُّ العَرْشِ الكَرِيمُ»

La ilaha illallahul azeemul haleemo, la ilaha illallahu Rabbul arshil Azeem, la ilaha illallahu Rabbus Samawate wa rabbul arshir kareem.


Translation: There is no god but Allah, the Great, the Tolerant, there is no god but Allah, the Lord of the Magnificent Throne There is no god but Allah, the Lord of the Heaven and the earth, the Lord of the Edifying Throne. (Bukhari, Muslim)

  • Asma’a bint Umais RadhiAllahu Anha narrated that Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam said:

May I not teach you phrases which you utter in distress? (These are:)

«أَللَّهُ أَللَّهُ رَبِّي لَا أُشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئًا»

Allahu Allahu Rabbi, la ash’riku behi shai’a.

“Allah , Allah is my Lord, I do not associate anything as partner with Him.” (Abu Dawood).
