Dua when facing some loss

Everyone at some point in their life will lose something. Sometimes it maybe something unimportant and sometimes it is a big loss which causes pain, grief and makes a person worry.

So what can be done when this happens?

There is a wonderful dua we can read which will help us overcome our loss and also result in Allah Ta’ala giving us something better in return than what we lost! How amazing is that!

Dua when facing some loss

إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُوْنَ، اَللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِيْ فِيْ مُصِيْبَتِيْ وَأَخْلِفْ لِيْ خَيْرًا مِنْهَا

‘Innaa lillaahi wa ‘innaa ‘ilayhi raaji’oon, Allaahumma’-jurni fee museebatee wa ‘akhliflee khayran minhaa

Translation: ‘To Allah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allah, recompense me for my affliction and replace it for me with something better.’

We have to always remember, Allah Ta’ala never takes anything from us to hurt us. He takes it away to see what we do and also give us something better in return.

So the next time we hear some bad news or experience some type of loss, let’s read this dua and ease our pain and also get something better in return.

Did you know? 

This is the dua that Umme Salama رضي الله عنها read when her husband Abu Salama رضي الله عنه passed away. She was obviously upset and thought she will never find a better husband than Abu Salama رضي الله عنه. 

As a result of this dua, Allah Ta’ala gave her something better. Umme Salama رضي الله عنها married our beloved Nabi ﷺ. Obviously, no husband could have been better than Our Beloved Nabi ﷺ!
