Amal at the time of calamity

Amal at the time of calamity

1. Qunoot-e-Naazilah: 
 (SAW) encouraged the Ummah to read this duaa at the time of 
distress and calamity. Encourage family members to recite this duaa daily; as well as our local ulama to recite in the Fajr salaah;preferably. We may learn or get a copy of the Duaa-e-Naazila 
from our local Ulama; and may recite it; even as a Duaa outside salaah if we are  unable to read it in salaah.

2. Useful Wazeefahs:
One may read these beneficial wazeefahs; 100 times daily during times of calamity and distress:

(i) “Hasbunallaahu wa ni’mal wakeel”:
Allah is sufficient for us and our Guardian.

(ii) “La ilaaha illa anta subhaanaka inni kuntu minaz zaalimeen”:
There is none worthy of worship except You. Certainly I am amongst the wrongdoers.

Hazrat Anas (RA) describes that Rasulullah (SAW) said that Allah Ta’ala says that sometimes, He intends to send a calamity to a land; but the idea is given up; seeing those men who populate  His houses(Masjids) and recite “ISTIGHFAAR” in the late hours of the night; and He witholds the calamity (BAYHAQI)

Hazrat Jabir (RA) and Hazrat Abu Talha (RA) reported that Rasulullah (SAW) has said that whosoever helps a Muslim at the time of loss of honour and humility; receives Help from Allah when he is in need of help.( ABU DAWOOD)
