Duaa at the time of distress and anxiety – 2

One should recite the following duaa at the time of distress and anxiety

حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الوَكِيلُ

Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best guardian (who takes care) of our affairs.

عن ابن عباس، حسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل، قالها إبراهيم عليه السلام حين ألقي في النار، وقالها محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم حين قالوا: إن الناس قد جمعوا لكم فاخشوهم فزادهم إيمانا، وقالوا: حسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل [آل عمران: 173] (صحيح بخاري رقم 4563)

Hazrat ibnu Abbaas (radhiyallahu anhuma) mentioned that Hazrat Ebrahim (alayhis salaam) recited the abovementioned duaa at the time he was thrown in the fire, and Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) recited it (this duaa) at the time when some of the people said to him, ‘Indeed, the people (the army of the kuffaar) have gathered against you, so fear them.’ But it (this statement, ‘the kuffaar have gathered against you’ merely) increased them in faith (Imaan), and they said, ‘Allah Ta‘ala is sufficient for us, and (He alone is) the best guardian (who takes care) of our affairs.’
