Dua in case of Helplessness OR Un-wanted Event

Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi wasallam said:

« ‏الْمُؤْمِنُ الْقَوِيُّ خَيْرٌ وَأَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِ الضَّعِيفِ وَفِي كُلٍّ خَيْرٌ احْرِصْ عَلَى مَا يَنْفَعُكَ وَاسْتَعِنْ بِاللَّهِ وَلاَ تَعْجِزْ وَإِنْ أَصَابَكَ شَىْءٌ فَلاَ تَقُلْ لَوْ أَنِّي فَعَلْتُ كَانَ كَذَا وَكَذَا ‏.‏ وَلَكِنْ قُلْ قَدَرُ اللَّهِ وَمَا شَاءَ فَعَلَ فَإِنَّ لَوْ تَفْتَحُ عَمَلَ الشَّيْطَانِ »

Translation: A powerful believer is better and more bellowed to Allah Ta’ala than a weak believer and both are good. Pursue the thing that may benefit you seeking help from Allah Ta’ala and do not sit helplessly. If you suffer a loss then do not say if alone I would have done so and so, rather say قَدَرُ اللَّهِ وَمَا شَاءَ فَعَلَ “QaddarAllahu wa ma sha’a fa’ala” Allah’ Ta’ala destined and whatever He desired did. This is because the word of “if alone” opens the door wide for satan to interfere in the affairs of a Muslim. (Muslim)
