Will you advice me a prayer (dua) against fear? What prayers should be said against fear?
- I am generally a very cowardly person. I am afraid of mice, dogs and even very simple things. Is there a prayer or chapter I can read to overcome this fear?

Dear Brother / Sister,
Once Imam Rabbani and his students were going to a distant place; they stayed in an inn for the night. He said to his students:
"A disaster will occur tonight. Read the following prayer three times with basmala: 'Bismillahilladhi la yadurru ma’asmihi shay’un fil ardi wa la fissamai wa huwas-sami’ul alim.' (In the Name of Allah with Whose name there is protection against every kind of harm in the earth or in the heaven, and He is the All-Hearing and All-Knowing.)"
A big fire occurred at night. The things in all rooms were burnt down. Nothing happened to those who read that prayer.
This prayer should be read three times, by remembering what Imam Rabbani said, in the morning and evening in order to be protected from problems, troubles, mischief, illnesses, evil eye, magic and the evil of the oppressors. When the verses of protection are read, this prayer should also be read. The following is stated in a hadith:
"If a person reads the following prayer three times in the morning, no misfortune will hit him until the evening; if he reads it in the evening, no misfortune will hit him until the morning: 'In the Name of Allah with Whose name there is protection against every kind of harm in the earth or in the heaven, and He is the All-Hearing and All-Knowing '" (Ibn Majah)
You should read the chapter of Quraysh in a fearful place and in order to be secure and peaceful when faced by the enemy. It was proved. You should read it at least eleven times at night and during the day. The following is stated in a hadith:
“Nothing can harm a person until he leaves the place he is in when he reads the following prayer: 'Audhu bikalimatillahittammati min sharri ma khalaqa.' (I take refuge in the perfect words of Allah (the Quran) from the evil of all creatures.)” (Muslim)
"The phrase 'Hasbiyallahu wa ni’mal wakil' (Allah is sufficient for me, and He is the best disposer of affairs) is security against all kinds of fear." (Daylami)
You can read or carry on you from verse 37 of the chapter of Taha to the end of verse 39 (from 'Wa laqad' to 'ala ayniya') in order to be saved from something fearful and to attain something you wish.
Imam Rabbani ordered people to read "La hawla wala quwwata illa billahil aliyyilazim" (There is no power and strength except with Allah, who is the highest, the most magnificent) in order to be protected from jinn and at fearful times.
Muhammad Masum said:
"You should say, 'La hawla wala quwwata illa billah' five hundred times and utter salawat one hundred times when you start and when you finish; after that, you should pray in order to get rid of your problems and attain what you wish."
It is necessary to utter istighfar (asking forgiveness) in order to get rid of problems. It was proved many times. The following is stated in a hadith:
"Allah saves a person who continues uttering istighfar a lot from problems and trouble. He gives him sustenance from an unexpected place."
Istighfar makes man attain his wishes. It is necessary to repent and utter istighfar a lot. It is useful for all kinds of problems and troubles. Allah states the following in the Quran:
"Ask forgiveness of your Lord, and turn to Him (in repentance): He will send you the skies pouring abundant rain, and add strength to your strength." (Hud, 11/52)
The prayer for preventing a danger:
Sheikh Shihabuddin Suhrawardi said:
Allah Almighty protects a person who reads the following prayer from being burnt, drowned and sudden death:
"Bismillahi ma shaallah la quwwata illa billah. Bismillahi ma shaallah la yasuqul khayra illallah. Bismillahi ma shaallah la yakshifussua illallah. Bismillahi ma shaallah kullu ni’matin minallah. Bismillahi ma shaallah al khayru kulluhu biyadillah. Bismillahi ma shaallah la yasrifussua illallah. Bismillahi ma shaallah ma kana min ni’matin fa minallah." (In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, there is no power except the power of Allah. In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, nobody manifests good except Allah; In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, nobody removes the evil except Allah, In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, all boons are from Allah; In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, all goods are in the hand of Allah; In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, nobody protect against evil except Allah; In the name of Allah, what Allah wishes, every single boon is from Allah.)
