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?

There is no god but Allah


 

لا إلَهَ إِلا اللَّهُ الْعَظِيمُ الْحَلِيمُ ، لا إلَهَ إلا اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمُ ، لا إلَهَ إلا اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّموَاتِ وَ رَبُّ الأَرْضِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمُ

La ilaha ilaAllah al-‘Adheem al-Haleem, la ilaha ilaAllah Rabb al-Arsh al-‘adheem, la ilaha ilaAllah Rabb as-Samawat wa Rabb al-Ard wa Rabb al-Arsh al-Kareem

There is no god but Allah, the All-Powerful, the Forbearing; there is no god but Allah, Lord of the mighty Throne; there is no god but Allah, Lord of heaven, Lord of earth, and Lord of the noble Throne.

[Sahih al-Bukhari, 8/154, Muslim, 4/2092]
Ibn Abbas (ra) reported that when the Prophet (saws) felt distressed he would say (the above)

O Allah, I ask You of immediate prosperity


 

اللهم انى اسئلك فرجا قريبا وصبرا اجميلا ورزقا و اسعا و العافية من جميع البلآء و اسئلك تمام العافية و اسئلك دوام العافية واسئلك الشكر على العافية و اسئلك الغنى عن الناس و لا حول و لا قوة الا با لله العلى العظيم

Allahumma inni as’aluka farajan qariban, wa sabran jameelan, wa rizqan wasi’an, wal ‘afiyata min jami’il-bala’i, wa as’aluka tammamal-’afiyati wa as’aluka dawamal-’afiyati, wa as’aluka-sh-shukha’alal ‘afiyati, wa as’alukal-ghina ‘anin-naasi, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahil ‘aliyyil-adhim.

O Allah, I ask You of immediate prosperity, and beautiful patience against misery and affliction, and abundance in sustenance, and peace from all misfortunes; and I also ask You for perfect and perpetual peace of mind, and I ask You to enable me to give thanks for granting me peace, and I ask You (to make me prosperous enough) to be needless of other people, and I cannot be saved (from sins) nor have I power (for good deeds), but by the help of Allah, the Sublime, the Great.

 

O Allah! Set right my faith


اَللَّهُمَّ اَصْلِحْ لِىْ دُنْيَاى الَّتِىَْ فِيْهَا مَعَاشِىْ وَ اَصْلِحْ لِىْ اخِرَتِىَ الَّتِىْ فِيْهَا مَعَادِىْ وَ اجْعَلِْ الْحَيوةَ زِيَادَةً لِّىْ فِىْ كُلِّ خَيْرٍ وَّ اجْعَلِ الْمَوْتَ رَاحَةً لِىْ مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ

Allahumm-aslih li diniyalladhi huwa ismatu amri, wa aslih li dunyaya-llati fiha ma’ashi, wa aslih li akhirati-llati fiha ma`adi, waj`alil-hayata ziyadatan li fi kulli khair, waj`alil-mauta rahatan li min kulli sharrin

O Allah! Set right my faith which is the safeguard of my affairs. And set right for me my worldy affairs wherein is my living. And set right for me my Hereafter on which depends my after-life. And make my life for me (a source) of abundance for every good and make my death a source of comfort for me protecting me against every evil
[Muslim, 35/6565]
[Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) used to say (the above)]
