Fatwaa ID: 2048

Question:
Salam u alakiyum. I’m right now facing a really tough time that I got into a trouble and have been falsey accused for have done something that I never did, is there any dua for Allah to ask save and free me from this situation and calamity?

my second question is I have asked Allah in my own language both in sujood and in the tahajjud, is it accepted by Allah to hear my dua in my own language in those times that dua are answered? Or must I do it I Arabic? Because I can’t Arabic.

Jazakallahu Khairan

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. May Allaah Ta’aala relieve you of your difficulties. May He protect your honor and elevate your status.
    Understand and remind yourself that no one has any power except Allaah Ta’aala. He alone gives honor, and He alone gives dishonor. No one can cause you any harm unless Allaah Ta’aala has decreed that for you. Submit and connect with Him.
    Furthermore, be reminded that Allaah Ta’aala tests us in various ways. Persevere and exercise patience. If you are innocent, you will see the light at the end of the tunnel. Surely, Allaah Ta’aala tests the servants that He loves.
    Give some sadaqah. Abundantly send salawaat upon Nabi ﷺ.

    Frequently recite the following:
    لا حَولَ ولا قوةَ إلا بالله
    “There is no might or power except with Allaah.”

حَسْبُنا اللهُ ونِعْمَ الوَكيلُ
“Allaah is sufficient foe us, and He is the best disposer (of affairs).”

اللَّهمَّ رَحمَتَكَ أرْجو، فلا تَكِلْني إلى نَفْسي طَرْفةَ عَيْنٍ، أصْلِحْ لي شَأْني كُلَّهُ، لا إلهَ إلَّا أنتَ
O Allaah! Your mercy is what I hope for. Do not abandon me to myself for (even) the blink of an eye, but put all my affairs in good order for me. There is none worthy of worship but You. [Abu Dawood 5090]

لا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ العَظِيمُ الحَلِيمُ، لا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ والأرْضِ، ورَبُّ العَرْشِ العَظِيمِ
None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Majestic, the Most Forbearing. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the Tremendous Throne. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the Heavens and the Lord of the Honourable Throne. [Bukhaari 7431]

لا إلهَ إلَّا أنت سبحانَك إنِّي كنتُ من الظَّالمين
O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from care and grief, I seek refuge in Thee from incapacity and slackness, I seek refuge in Thee from cowardice and niggardliness, and I seek in Thee from being overcome by debt and being put in subjection by men. [Tirmidhi 3505]

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحَزَنِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْجُبْنِ وَالْبُخْلِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ غَلَبَةِ الدَّيْنِ وَقَهْرِ الرِّجَالِ
O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from care and grief, I seek refuge in Thee from incapacity and slackness, I seek refuge in Thee from cowardice and niggardliness, and I seek in Thee from being overcome by debt and being put in subjection by men. [Abu Dawood 1555]

  1. In principle, the du’aas made in salaah must be in Arabic. It cannot be in any other language. This is applicable to all salaahs. If one makes du’aa in any other language in salaah, then the salaah will be invalidated. Likewise, according to the Hanafi legal school, the du’aas made in salaah must be du’aas from the Qur’aan or the Ahaadith or something similar. After salaah or at any other time, you may raise your hands and make du’aa in your own language. That is permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
