What should be said at times of calamity?

Umm Salama, the wife of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), reported Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) as saying:

If any servant (of Allah) who suffers a calamity says:

“We belong to Allah and to Him shall we return; O Allah, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in exchange for it,” Allah will give him reward for affliction, and would give him something better than it in exchange.

She (Umm Salama) said:

When Abu Salama died.

I uttered (these very words) as I was commanded (to do) by the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).

So Allah gave me better in exchange than him. i. e. (I was taken as the wife of) the Messenger of Allah (saws).

In-book reference: Book 11, Hadith 5

About `La illaha illa Allah

Pray your Salah and be good to others too, When you remember Allah, He remembers you. Do you know when you hear or recite the Qur'an, Allah is telling you that He is the One.
