In one of the well known traceable supplication reported by one of the companions in which Prophet Mohammad (s) said “O Allah! Grant a good end to all our matters and save us from humiliation in the world and the punishment of the hereafter. (Musnad Ahmed).
In this article, I will talk about the reasons and means that can protect Muslim from the disgrace, shame, and humiliation in the Dunya (this life).
Basically, in most of the cases, getting the answer for your supplication (dua)requires some practical steps that make you eligible for an answer.
Before asking Allah’s mercy for yourself, you have to show your mercy to Allah’s creation first. When you ask Allah to forgive your shortcomings, forgive the shortcomings of others. Before asking your Lord to give, try to give first and Allah will compensate you in return.
Likewise, to ask Allah to protect you from humiliation, loss and regret in this Dunya, you should perform good deeds and develop noble character.
In order to achieve this, you must be careful to create the qualities of six workable traits that were mentioned by Lady Khadija (r) the wife of the Prophet in her response to the prophet when he came terrified from the cave of Hira as a result of seeing the Angel of the revelation for the first time.
He (s) said to his beloved wife ” O, Khadija, what is wrong with me, I’m worried about myself”, and then he told her about what had happened to him at that night at Hira.
Inspiring with her innate faith, she did not share any of these fears. She realized that something tremendous had happened to her husband, and she was certain, knowing him as she did, that he was neither mad nor possessed.
“Do not worry,” she said to him confidently, “for, by Him who has dominion over Khadijah’s soul, I hope that you are the Prophet of this nation. Allah would never humiliate you, for you are good to your relatives, you are true to your word, you help those who are in need, you support the weak, you feed the guest and you answer the call of those who are in distress.”
“No, Allah would ever put you down, because you have the qualities of perfection and high morals,” she said.
The Prophet (s) was kind and dutiful to his relatives through giving to the one who deprived him, forgiving the one who oppressed him and behaving well to someone who behaved badly towards him.
He (s) was constantly in the help of the poor, the orphans, and those who have been unable to do the necessities of their lives.
Accordingly, if you are looking for Allah’s help and protection, and if you are seeking for the success in this life, you should adhere to these traits and hold on to them side by side with your supplication (dua) to Allah.
