Dua Asking Allah to Help Clear Debt (Hadith)
“[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed.” Surah Mulk Ayah 2
In life we will face many tests, Allah has told this in the Qur’an.
This is not to torture us but to test and build our character. In Surah Baqarah it tells us “Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear.” Surah Baqarah Ayat 286
We may have difficulties and challenges but nothing which we can’t handle. All our trials in life are things which can push us to the edge but not enough to knock us off the cliff. Subhanallah.
In hadith Riyad As Salihin hadith 101, Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) as saying those in Jahannam will be the people of desires and passions while Jannah will be people of adversities.
In the hadith there’s a mention of a dua which can help with money problems. Ali’ reported that the Prophet (ﷺ) taught the following dua to ask for Allah’s help to relieve debt as large as a mountain.
