“Worries and Debts have overcome me”.

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركات

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Saeed Khudri ( radiallahu anhu ) that  a man said, “Oh Messenger of Allah, Worries and Debts have overcome me”.Nabi (‫صلى الله عليه وسلم) said “Should I not teach you a Dua, if you say it, Allah will remove your worries and fulfill your debts.” The man said, “Yes”. Nabi(‫صلى الله عليه وسلم) then said, “Say when you awake in the morning and at evening:‫‫

اَلَّلهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحُزْنِ‪وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ‪  مِنَ الْعَجْزِ وَ الْكَسَلِ‪وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ‪  وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِن غَلَبَةِ الدَّيْنِ وَقَهْرِ الرِّجَالِ

Oh Allah I seek your protection from grief, and I seek your protection from  incapability and laziness and I seek your protection from miserliness and  cowardice, and I seek your protection from being overpowered with debts and  being overpowered by man. The man said, “I made this dua, then Allah removed my grief and fulfilled my debts”. (Mishkaat Pg 215
