Is There Any Du’as To Get Out of a Bad Situation?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org
Question:
Is there any du’as to get out of a bad situation?
Answer:
Dear questioner,
May Allah bless you and help you in your affairs.
Provision Varies 
Allah Most High in his creation has allotted everyone certain provision; for some, He has given them more wealth, better health, and yes, for some, perhaps more intelligence than others. You must remember that does not make them better than someone else.
The door to every good in this world and the next is taqwa. Ultimately, this is what will matter in our graves and the hereafter. No matter how smart or intelligent some people claim to be, the fact is it will not benefit them one iota on the Day of Judgement.
Allah Most High says, “The Day when neither wealth nor children will help Except for him who comes to God with a sound heart.” [Qur’an 26: 88-89]
Aiming to attain a sound heart is within the ability of every Muslim.
True Intelligence 
The Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “The intelligent person is the one who keeps a check on himself and does actions that will benefit him after death, and the foolish person is the one who follows his desires and places false hope in Allah.” [Tirmidhi]
Advice on Taqwa 
Allah also says, “O you who believe! If you remain conscious of God, He will give you a criterion, and will remit from you your sins, and will forgive you. God is the possessor of infinite grace.” [Qur’an 8:29]
This “criterion” or furqan in Arabic means to differentiate between truth and falsehood. If Allah has granted you to recognize Him and believe in Him, then you have been given real intelligence.
Allah says, وَاتَّقُواْ اللَّهَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ اللَّهُ” And fear Allah and Allah will teach you…” [Qur’an 2:293]
The best thing to do is strive to be from the people of Taqwa. Allah will grant you ease and a way out of all your affairs and difficulties.
Advice and Dua
You can make this dua – and say, “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.”
In transliteration, that would be “Wa Qur- rabbi zidni i’lma” [Qur’an 20:114]
Finally, dear brother, try to be with people who appreciate you and whom you feel comfortable with. Good company is better than not having any company, but bad company is worst than having no company at all.
