“…Then I Praise Allah 4 times..”


Shuraih said: If I am afflicted with a calamity, then I praise Allah four times.

  1. I praise him that it was not worse than it was.
  2. I praise him when he provides me with patience to bear it.
  3. I praise him when he guides me to supplicate appropriately and hoping for reward.
  4. I praise him for not making it a calamity in my religion (i.e. making one a kaafir).
