The Best Way for Sisters to Say the Supplication to Alleviate Grief, Distress and Anxiety
by AbdurRahman.org
The Best Way for Sisters to Say the Supplication to Alleviate Grief, Distress and Anxiety
According to Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy upon him)
An exclusive translation for Sisters Upon Al-Istiqaamah

Imam Ahmed, Musnad (1/391), and others reported upon the authority of Ibn Mas’ood that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “No slave is afflicted with anxiety and grief, and then says:

‘O Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your male slave, son of Your female slave. My forelock is in Your hand. Your judgement upon me is assured and whatever you have decreed for me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You have named Yourself with, revealed in Your Book, taught one of Your creation or which You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You that You make the Qur’aan the spring of my heart and the light of my chest, a banisher for my grief and a reliever for my anxiety.’

Except that Allaah will replace his distress and grief with joy.”He was asked, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, should we not learn it?’ He said, “Of course, whoever hears it should learn it.”Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) was asked about a woman who heard the hadeeth: ‘O Allah, I am Your slave , son of Your male slave, son of Your slave. My forelock is in Your hand...(to the end of the hadeeth. And she continuously used this wording. So she was instructed to say, “O Allah I am your female slave  daughter of Your female slave- until the end of it.” However, she refused to say this and persisted upon the original wording. Is she correct in this or not?

He responded:
“Rather, it is befitting for her to say, “O Allah, I am Your female slave (أمتك), daughter (بنت) of Your male slave (عبدك), son of Your female slave (أمتك).”
اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَمَتك بِنتُ عَبْدِك ابْنِ أَمَتِك

This is more appropriate and better even though her statement “I am your slave (عبدك), son (ابن) of your slave” has a angle in the Arabic language like the word Zawj (i.e. which can be used for man or wife). And Allah knows best.”
Majmoo’ Al-Fataawa Vol. 22, p. 488.
The supplication in Arabic:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ نَاصِيَتِى بِيَدِكَ مَاضٍ فِىَّ حُكْمُكَ عَدْلٌ فِىَّ قَضَاؤُكَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَداً مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوْ أَنْزَلْتَهُ فِى كِتَابِكَ أَوِ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِى عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ رَبِيعَ قَلْبِى وَنُورَ صَدْرِى وَجَلاَءَ حُزْنِى وَذَهَابَ هَمِّى

So according to Shaykh Al-Islam it is better for women to say:
اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَمَتك بِنتُ عَبْدِك ابْنِ أَمَتِك

And the rest of the supplication is exactly the same.

When I first read this ayah and understood it - I realized that getting to Jannah is not easy and it wasn't easy even for the Prophet Mohamed peace be upon him and his companions. I t really touched me deeply and whenever I am down I am remember it and it lifts my spirits: Or de ye think that ye shall enter the Garden (of Bliss) without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They encountered suferring and adversity, and were so shaken in spiri that even the Messenger and those of faith who were with him cried, " when (will come) the help of Allah" Ah! verily the help of Allah is (always) near!
