When Calamity strikes..Say


To Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allaah, recompense me for my affliction and replace it for me with something better.

And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,
Who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return.”
Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided.

[Qur’an 2:155-157]

Umm Salamah (ra) reported that Allah’s Messenger(pbuh) said: “Whenever an affliction strikes a muslim and he says, as Allah commanded him, “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajiun. Allahumma ajirni fi musibati, wa akhlif li khayran minha – To Allah we belong, and to Him will we return – O Allah, reward me for my affliction and replace it for me with that which is better,” Allah will then surely replace it for him with that which is better.”
