When Things Go Wrong!

A Beautiful Dua!

 

 

 اللهم لا أسألك رد القضاء ولكن أسألك اللطف فيه

 

O Allah, I do not ask you to “return” or “undo” al qada’a (event that has occurred), but I ask you to have mercy in it (for me).

“Al-lotf” which is kindness or mercy in it (i.e in the qada’a which you have decreed upon us)

Any better translation would be greatly appreciated. However, I am most fascinated by this dua, because it shows the human factor of wishing to undo things and turn the time back. Yet, as we know that is impossible we simply ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to make the misfortune we’ve caused to befall on ourselves, to be full of mercy.
