Supplication said upon seeing someone in trial or tribulation

This supplication is to be said to one’s self, not directly to the one in trial or tribulation.


الْحَمْـدُ للهِ الّذي عافاني مِمّا ابْتَـلاكَ بِهِ، وَفَضَّلَـني عَلى كَثيـرٍ مِمَّنْ خَلَـقَ تَفْضـيلا.

Alhamdu lillahil-lathee AAafanee mimmab-talaka bih, wafaddalanee AAala katheerin mimman khalaqa tafdeela.

‘All praise is for Allah Who saved me from that which He tested you with and Who most certainly favoured me over much of His creation.’
