At the time of heavy winds


اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا رَحْمَةً وَلَا تَجْعَلْهَا عَذَابَاً اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا رِيَاحَاً وَلَا تَجْعَلْهَا رِيحَاً

“O Allah, let it be a mercy and not a punishment. O Allah make it a beneficial and not a destructive wind”.

(Mishkat)

If there is a darkness with the heavy wind, recite Surah Falaq and Surah Naas. (Mishkat)

When tired of life


Due to difficulty death is sought but one should never pray for death instead pray this:

اللَّهُمَّ أَحْيِنِي مَا كَانَتِ الْحَيَاةُ خَيْرٌ لِي وَتَوَفَّنِي إِذَا كَانَتِ الْوَفَاةُ خَيْرَاً لِي

“O Allah keep me alive as long as life is good for me and when death is better for me lift me”.

O Ever-Living, O Eternal


 

يَا حَيُّ ، يَا قَيُّومُ ، بِرَ حْمَتِكَ أسْتَغِيثُ

Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyoom bi Rahmatika astagheeth

O Ever-Living, O Eternal, by Your Mercy I seek help.

[Sahih al-Hakim 1/545, Sahih al-Jami 4791, at-Tirmidhi – Sahih]
Anas (ra) reported that when the Prophet (saws) was distressed by something, he would say (the above)

Allah is my Lord


 

اللَّهُ اللَّهُ رَبِّي لا أُشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئًا

Allah Allah rabbi la ushriku bihi shay’an

Allah Allah is my Lord, I do not associate anything with Him

[abu Dawud, 2/87, Sahih ibn Majah 2/335]
Asma bint ‘Umayr (ra) said: “The Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said to me: ‘Shall I not teach you some words which you can say at times of distress?
Another narration says that these words should be said 7 times.
