There isn’t a slave [of Allah] who is stricken by a calamity and reacts by saying,
إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون، اللهم أجرني في مصيبتي واخلفني خيراً منها
“Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un, Allahumma ajirni fi musibati wa akhlifni khairan minha”
“Indeed we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return; O Allah, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in exchange for it,”
except that Allah will give him reward for his affliction, and would give him something better than it in exchange.
Dr Mohammed al Arefe.
