O Lord!


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Whenever anything distressed the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him), he would say:“La ilāha illallāh al-‘azhīm al-halīm, la ilāha illallāh rabbu al-‘arsh al-‘azhīm, la ilāha illallāh rabbu as - samāwāt wa rabbu al - ard wa rabbu al - ‘arsh al - karīm (There is no god but Allah, the Most Great, the Forbearing. 

(There is no god but Allah, the Lord of the Mighty Throne . There is no god but Allah, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and the Lord of the Honorable Throne).”

[Narrated by Al - Bukhāri and Muslim]

If anyone does not supplicate using the Lord’s names willingly, he will certainly use it by way of necessity. A person lying very ill in his bed would call out: “O Lord, O Lord!” And behold! Cure and recovery come to him from the Almighty Lord.

A person in abject poverty and misery would call out: “O Lord, O Lord!” And behold! He fulfills his needs and removes his poverty.

A starving person, in real suffering, would call out: “O Lord, O Lord!” And behold! Sustenance comes to him in abundance. 

A wronged person, wiping off his tears and hiding his pain, would call out: “O Lord, O Lord!” And behold! He gets support and a good outcome for his suffering. 

Al-Hāfizh ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “Persistently supplicating Allah by mentioning His Lordship is one of the best means for getting the supplication answered.” 

O Lord, relieve the distress of Your servant and put an end to his suffering.
