What to Say at Times of Grief, Concern, and Sadness (127)
It is reported of the Prophet that if something distressed him he would say Yã hayyu yã qayyumu, bi-rahmatica 'astagheethu.(148)

(148) O' Living [a life not followed by death]. O Sustainer, in your Mercy I plead for rescue.


Reported by At-Tirmithi, and Al-Albãni said it was comely hadeeth. He said that in At-Tirmithi's chain of ascription there was a weak person: Ar-Riqãshi whose name was Yazeed which also appeared in a report by Ibn As-Sunni (#332); however, this hadeeth has testimonial in Al-Mustadrak (#509/1). Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #98.
