Du’aa of Nuh (a.s.) – when feeling overwhelmed

أَنِّي مَغْلُوبٌ فَانتَصِرْ

Anni maghluubun fan-tasir. (54:10)

I have been overpowered so help me.


This was the du’aa of Sayyidnaa Nuh (a.s.) after 950 years of preaching to a stubborn people. This du’aa is also appropriate when a person feels overwhelmed by great hardships, calamities, serious illness, or enemies.
