5) Du‘aa’ (supplication) & Reminder


We ask Allaah, may He be exalted, to keep us safe from distress, to grant us relief from depression and to alleviate our worries, for He is the All-Hearing Who answers prayers, He is the Ever-Living, Eternal.

Finally, let us remind ourselves that no matter how great and how numerous the worries and distress of this world may be, the distress and anguish of the Hereafter will be far greater. This includes that which will befall all people when they are gathered all together for Judgement. Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah have mercy on him) reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah said: “I will be the master of all people on the Day of Resurrection. Do you know why I will be the master of all people? Allaah will gather together all the people, the first and the last of them in one place, in such a way that if a caller calls out to them, they will all hear him, and they will all be seen at once. The sun will be brought close to them, and they will feel more distress than they can bear. People will say, ‘Can you see what has happened to you? Won’t you see who can intercede for you with your Lord?’ Then some of them will say to others, ‘Let’s go to Adam…’”

There will be no cure for distress and anguish on that Day unless one turns to Allaah today.

May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his Family and Companions, who are the best of people. Praise be to Allaah Who is overtaken by neither slumber nor sleep.
