Dua for safety from calamities

We all want to be safe and free from difficulty, pain and misfortune.

For this, we do everything we are able to but sometimes still this isn’t enough and we find ourselves in trouble or difficulty.

Our amazing Nabi ﷺ has taught us a very special dua which will keep us safe as long as we read it daily in the morning 3 times and in the evening 3 times.
