85. In al-Kˇf˘: In his narration from al-Fadhl ibn Ab˘ Qurrah from Ab˘ ~Abdillˇh XE "Ab˘ ~Abdillˇh"  D who said: Three sentences were recited by all the prophets, one after the other, from Adam D until they came down to the Noble Prophet XE "Noble Prophet"  9. Every morning he would say:

أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ إِيـمَاناً تُبَاشِرُ بِهِ قَلْبِي، وَيَقِيناً حَتَّى أَعْلَمُ أَنَّهُ لاَ يُصِيبُنِي إِلاَّ مَا كَتَبْتَ لِي، وَرَضِّنِي بِمَا قَسَمْتَ لِي.

O Allˇh XE "Allˇh" ! I ask You for faith which gives joy to my heart, and certitude so that I may know that nothing befalls me except that which You have destined for me, and make me pleased with that which you have apportioned for me.[i]

86. In al-Khisˇl: The Noble Prophet XE "Holy Prophet"  9 taught ~Al˘ XE "~Al˘"  D the du~ˇ which Jibra`˘l brought from Allˇh XE "Allˇh"  i and instructed the Prophet to recite in times of hardships and troubles:

يَا عِمَادَ مَنْ لاَ عِمَادَ لَهُ، وَيَا حِرْزَ مَنْ لاَ حِرْزَ لَهُ، وَيَا ذُخْرَ مَنْ لاَ ذُخْرَ لَهُ، وَيَا سَنَدَ مَنْ لاَ سَنَدَ لَهُ، وَيَا غِيَاثَ مَنْ لاَ غِيَاثَ لَهُ، وَيَا كَرِيـمَ الْعَفْوِ، وَيَا حَسَنَ الْبَلاَءِ، وَيَا عَظِيمَ الرَّجَاءِ، وَيَا عَوْنَ الضُّعَفَاءِ، وَيَا مُنْقِذَ الْغَرْقى، وَيَا مُنْجِيَ الْهَلْكى، يَا مُحْسِنُ، يَا مُجْمِلُ، يَا مُنْعِمُ، يَا مُفْضِلُ، أَنْتَ الَّذِي سَجَدَ لَكَ سَوَادُ اللَّيلِ، وَنُورُ النَّهَارِ وَضَوْءُ الْقَمَرِ، وَشُعَاعُ الشَّمْسِ، وَدَوِيُّ الْمَاءِ، وَحَفِيفُ الشَّجَرِ، يَا اللّٰهُ، يَا اللّٰهُ، يَا اللّٰهُ، أَنْتَ وَحْدَكَ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَكَ. ثُمَّ تَقُولُ: أَللّٰهُمَّ افْعَلْ بِي كَذَا وَكَذََا...

O Supporter of the one with no supporter! O Protector of the one with no protector! O Provider of the one with no provisions! O Helper of the one with no helper! O Hearer of the unheard appeal! O Munificent in forgiving! O One whose trials are good! O Giver of great hope! O Helper of the weak! O Rescuer of the drowning! O Savior of the devastated! O Beneficent! O Creator of beauty! O Granter of blessings! O Bestower of good! You are the One to whom prostrate the darkness of night, the light of day, the illumination of the moon, the rays of the sun, the sound of (running) water and the rattling of trees. O Allˇh XE "Allˇh" ! O Allˇh! O Allˇh! You are One and have no partner.

Then you say: “O Allˇh XE "Allˇh" ! Grant me such and such,” and you will not stand up from where you are sitting but that your supplication will be answered if Allˇh wills.[ii]
