Please, tell me some dua for overcoming worry.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
Please, tell me some dua for overcoming worry.


(Fatwa: 299/L)


You should keep on reciting the dua below, in the morning and evening:

اللھم انی اعوذبک من الھم والحزن واعوذبک من العجز والکسل واعوذبک من الجبن والبخل واعوذ بک من غلبة الدین وقھر الرجال

It is narrated that a Sahabi (companion of Prophet) was suffering from worry and owed some debts, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallah) instructed him to recite the dua. The Sahabi says that I recited it and Allah removed my worry and enabled me to repay my debts.


Also, recite the dua below, after every obligatory salah with your palm on forehead:

بسم اللہ الذی لا الہ الا ھو الرحمن الرحیم، اللھم اذھب عنی الھم والحزن

And, read Istighfar (repentance to Allah) much often, as it is in Hadith that one who keeps on reciting Istighfar Allah relieves him from every grief and give him sustenance through the ways he never expected.
