Distress

Du’a at times of distress

Ibn ‘Abbas narrated that when he was in distress, the Prophet of Allah (PBUH) would supplicate: “There is none worthy of worship except Allah, the Forbearing, the Wise, there is none worthy of worship except Allah, the Lord of the Magnificent Throne, there is none worthy of worship except Allah, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and the Lord of the Noble Throne. (“La Ilaha Illallah Al-Halimul-Hakim, La Ilaha Illallah, Rabbul-Arshil-Azim, La Ilaha Illallah, Rabbus-Samawati Wal-Ardi Wa Rabbul Arshil-Karim”) (Sahih) Reference : Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3435

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا مُعَاذُ بْنُ هِشَامٍ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي الْعَالِيَةِ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، أَنَّ نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ يَدْعُو عِنْدَ الْكَرْبِ ” لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ الْعَلِيُّ الْحَلِيمُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ ” .
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي عَدِيٍّ، عَنْ هِشَامٍ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي الْعَالِيَةِ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِمِثْلِهِ . قَالَ وَفِي الْبَابِ عَنْ عَلِيٍّ . قَالَ وَهَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ .

Comments: In this narration ‘Magnificent’ and ‘Noble’ can be counted among the attributes of Allah (SWT) and of the Throne as well. If these attributes are taken for the ‘Throne’ then it will be for its high status and its grandeur.
