What to Say at Times of Grief, Concern, and Sadness (129)
The Messenger of Allah said to 'Asmã' binti 'Umaysin: "Shall I not teach you a few words which you can say when you are distressed - or at the time of distress - Allãhu, 'allãhu rabbee lã 'ushriku bihi shay'an.(150)

(150) Allah, Allah my Lord I associate not with Him a thing.


Ibn Taymiyah referenced this hadeeth to Abu Dawood, and Al-Albãni said it was a comely hadeeth. The hadeeth, he said, has an unknown person in its chain, yet, the hadeeth has testimonial in the hadeeth of `Aishata reported as #2369 by Ibn Hibbãn in his Saheeh which includes that the phrase be repeated twice. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #100.
