Question

What is the reference for this narration?

Du’a for distress and difficulties:

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports: “When something would distress Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), he would say, ‘Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyumu bi Rahmatika astaghith.'”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3524)

 

Arabic text and translation

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ

O the Ever living, the Sustainer , in your Mercy do I seek relief.
