Hi, how have you been? Are you feeling good recently? I hope you’re doing well and here I’m quite good, Alhamdulillah, even though many things happen beyond my expectations. In fact, it’s been a long time I didn’t share my thought in my box file. Now I’m trying to convey my opinions about 20’s life and share my favorite duas currently which help me facing my life crisis.
In the 20s, it is as if we get the gate of new life. 20s is the ages where we are required to transform into adults in all things. Manson said that life is a series of problems which will continue to roll. That’s fact, as we get older the problems we will face get more and complicated.
The age where we begin to question and determine our life goals. Even when goals have been set, we don’t necessarily go through them easily since each goal requires different efforts to realize it. We must be clever to compromise our life goals and enjoy every process. Not only about life goals but also about career. At this age we will also face chaos in our careers where we haven’t got the career we dream of. Everything we dream of beyond our expectations. In this 20s we will be in a point our life is meaningless and this will trigger anxiety even depression. At these ages, we’ll feel that many things don’t go as our plans and hopes which cause feelings of stress and fatigue, sadness and crying, disappointment and anger at ourselves.
In the 20s life, everything is not easy.
Facing that kind of situations makes me quite depressing. So I need nutrition for helping my mental hehe 🙂 . Ok let me share my favorite duas which help me facing these situations. These duas I usually recite after praying.
First, dua for helping me get better job
“Allaahummaghfir lii dzanbii, wa wassi’ khuluqii, wa thayyib lii kasabii, wa qanni’nii bimaa razaqtanii, wa laa tadzhab qalbii ilaa syaiin sharraftahu ‘annii”
Ya Allah, ampunillah dosaku, perluaslah (muliakanlah) akhlakku, berilah untukku pekerjaan yang baik, jadikanlah aku puas menerima apapun yang Engkau karuniakan kepadaku, dan janganlah Engkau buat hatiku mengingat apapun yang telah Engkau palingkan dariku (HR. Ibnu An-Najjar)
Second, dua for helping me to soften my heart, this is one of my favorite dua since I was in college. This dua by Prophet Musa A.S, it’s about expanding our chest, giving an easy way and untie the knot from our tongue.
“Robbis rohlii shodrii, wa yassirlii amrii, wahlul ‘uqdatam mil lisaani yafqohu qoulii”
Ya Rabbku, lapangkanlah untukku dadaku, dan mudahkanlah untukku urusanku, dan lepaskanlah kekakuan dari lidahku, supaya mereka mengerti perkataanku” (QS. Thoha: 25-28)
Then, this dua by Prophet Musa A.S too, this dua is an anti-galau dua by Prophet Musa because at that time his life was threatened, his heart was galau, his physic was exhausted and hadn’t yet found a wife.
“Rabbi inni lima anzalta ilayya min khairin faqir”
Ya Allah, apapun yang telah Engkau anugrahkan kepadaku, aku sungguh sangat membutuhkannya [Al – Qasas: 24]
The last one, this is one of my recent favorite duas (Al Furqan, 74) this dua was always recited by Prophet Ibrahim AS to get a pious child. However, not only hoping to be blessed with pious children but also hoping to get a marriage partner.
“Rabbana hablana min azwajina, wa dzurriyyatina qurrata a’yuniw, waj’alna lil muttaqiena imaamaa.”
Wahai Robb kami, karuniakanlah pada kami dan keturunan kami serta istri-istri kami penyejuk mata kami. Jadikanlah pula kami sebagai imam bagi orang-orang yang bertakwa
If you have another favorite dua, let me know it. Hoping that my writing will be beneficial for us. CMIIW
