What to Say at Times of Grief, Concern, and Sadness (128)
Abi Bakrata stated that the Messenger of Allah said, "The supplications of the distressed are: 'Allãhumma rahmataka 'arjoo, falã takilnee 'ilã nafsee tarfata `eynin, wa'aslihlee sha'nee kullahu, la 'ilãha 'illã 'anta."(l49)

(149) O' my 'ilãh it is your Mercy that I beseech, so do not entrust me to my self for even a twinkle of an eye, and correct for me all my affairs, there is no 'ilãh other then You.


Reported by Abu Dawood, and Al-Albãni said it was of comely ascription, and that Ibn Hibbãn (#2370) said it was sound. It is #99 in The Authentic of Good Sayings.
