As part of the daily after Fajr program regarding the life of a Muslim, the following is a Sunnah Dua for safety against calamities.

It is reported in Ibnus Sunni from Talq Ibn Habib that someone came to tell Hazrat Abu Darda (R.A) that his house was on fire. Hazrat Abu Darda (R.A) (without any concern replied that his house was certainly not on fire, Allah will never do so because I have heard from Rasulullah  صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم  that if a person recites these words in the beginning of the day, no calamities will befall him till evening and if read in the evening then no calamities will befall the reader till morning. In another narration it is stated that calamities will neither befall the reader of this dua nor his wife and children nor whatever he owns. Hazrat Abu Darda (R.A) said: In the morning I had recited these words, therefore, how can my house be on fire? He then said to the people: Let us go and see . Together they went towards his house. It was seen that his entire street was on fire and the houses all around Abu Darda’s were burnt, but, amidst this, his own house was safe and sound. (Al – Azkaar)

Translation: “O Allah, You are my Lord, there is no god but You, I put my trust in You, You are the Lord of the Mighty Throne. Whatever Allah wills will happen and what He does not will, cannot happen. There is no power or strength except with Allah, the Exalted, the Mighty. I know that Allah has power over all things, and Allah comprehends all things in knowledge. O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the evil of myself and from the evil of all creatures under Your control. Surely the straight way is my Sustainer’s way“
