Question: Can you recommend a supplication for overcoming difficulty?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are well, insha’Allah.

Ask Allah as He loves to be asked and always gives, realize your neediness before Him, and trust in Allah, realizing: “There is no movement or power except through Allah (La hawla wa la quwwata illa bi Allah).”

The following supplication may also be recited:

“O Allah! There is nothing easy except that which You make easy; and You make the difficult, if You wish, easy (Allahumma la sahla illa ma ja`altahu sahla wa anta taj`al ul-hazna idha shi’ta sahla).”

اللهُمَّ لا سَهْلَ إلا مَا جَعَلتَهُ سَهْلا وَ أنتَ تَجْعَلُ الحزْنَ إذا شِئْتَ سَهْلا
