Du'a for Allah's (s.w.t.) Protection from Calamities & Misfortunes

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The following du’a was taught by one of my shuyukh, Shaykh Ahmad ‘Arif.  I normally recite it after every swalah as part of my wirid and dzikr.  However, I end the du’a with the recitation of swalawat.

Abu Darda’ al-Answari (r.a.) was a great swahabah and the bond brother of Salman al-Farisi (r.a.).  He was a trader of the al-Harits clan of Banu Khazraj and converted to Islam after the Battle of Badr.  He later became a qadhi in Syria during the reign of Caliph ‘Utsman ibn al-‘Affan (r.a.).  He passed away in Syria in 32 A.H. / 652 A.D.  He was buried with his wife, Umm ad-Darda’ (r.a.) and their maqam can still be seen.
