Friday, 16 April 2010 23:05

Q: Will it be against radha-bil-qadha (being pleased with the decree of Allah) to make du`aa in order to ward off calamities?

A: It will not be against radha-bil-qadha if the du`aa is made in the following manner: O Allah! These calamities are also Your rahmat (mercy) and warding them off is Your mercy as well. On account of our weakness we are unable to bear the mercy of calamities. Therefore transform the mercy of calamity into the mercy of ease.
