Du’aa when you suffer from a calamity

This is an amazing du’aa, Mashaa’Allah.

Umm Salamah, the wife of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) 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 Salamah) said: When Abu Salamah died. I uttered (these very words) as I was commanded (to do) by the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). So Allah gave me better in exchange than him. i. e. (I was taken as the wife of) the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ).

Subhanallaah!

The text of the du’aa that comes in the above mentioned hadeeth is as follows:

 إِنَّا لِلهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا

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.
