Du'as to Remember During Storms

Du'as to Remember During Storms

Oct 29, 2012

During hurricanes and storms remember to increase your dhikr (remembrance of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala), recitation of the Qur’an and istighfaar (seeking forgiveness). May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala keep you and your loved ones safe during the storm. Below are some du’as (prayers) to remember during such times:

اللّهُـمَّ إِنَّـي أَسْـأَلُـكَ خَيْـرَها، وَخَيْـرَ ما فيهـا، وَخَيْـرَ ما اُرْسِلَـتْ بِه، وَأَعـوذُ بِكَ
مِنْ شَـرِّها، وَشَـرِّ ما فيهـا، وَشَـرِّ ما اُرْسِلَـتْ بِه.
Allahumma innee as-aluka khayraha wakhayra ma feeha, wakhayra ma orsilat bih, wa-aAAoothu bika min sharriha, washarri ma feeha washarri ma orsilat bih

“O Allah, I ask You for its (the wind’s) goodness, the good within it, and the good it was sent with, and I take refuge with You from its evil, the evil within it, and from the evil it was sent with.”

اللَّهُمَّ لا تَقْتُلْنَا بِغَضَبِكَ ، وَلا تُهْلِكْنَا بِعَذَابِكَ ، وَعَافِنَا قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ
Allahumma la taqtulna bi-ghadhabik wa la tuhlikna bi-‘adhaabik wa ‘aafina qabla dhaalik

“O Allah, don’t end our lives with Your wrath, and do not make us perish with Your punishment and forgive us before that.”

للَّهمَّ حَوَالَيْنَا وَلا عَلَيْنَا ، اللَّهمَّ عَلَى الآكَامِ وَالظِّرَابِ ، وَبُطُوْنِ الأَوْدِيَةِ ، وَمَنابِتِ الشَّجَر
Allahumma hawalayna wa la ‘alayna. Allahumma alal akaami (wal ajaami) wal dhiraabi wa butunil ‘awdiyaati wa mana bi tish shajar.

“O Allah, let the rain fall around us and not upon us, O Allah, (let it fall) on the pasture, hills, valleys and roots of trees.”

    Jazakumullah for the wonderful link.
    I would like to point out that there is a typo in the last Dua in Arabic. The second word is missing a couple of letters. The correct version is right here:
    Jazakumullah for this page. It is good to have an Islamic scholar look over whatever you are going to post on the internet to make sure that there are no mistakes.
