Dua of Desperation


 رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنْزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

Rabbi inni limaa anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqeer

"O my Sustainer! Verily, in dire need am I of any good which Thou mayest bestow upon me!" [28:24]

The most effective thing that makes a blessing last longer is gratitude and the greatest thing by which tribulations are overcome is patience.

Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) Ghurar al-Hikam p. 522, h. 17

Both Jannah and Jahannam were made for sinners. Jahannam was made for the arrogant sinner, whereas Jannah was made for the repentant sinner.
