What du'a can I read to feel contentment and peace of mind?

berdoa Question:

As-Salamu`alaykum, what can I read [du’a’] to feel contentment and peace of mind? I am not a materialistic person but I still cannot find peace of mind although I have a little contentment of heart bottom line I feel restless and thoughts of wanting to go back to Allah, and being in the comfort of his embrace and in this way having total peace of mind.


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

You should read the supplications of morning and evening on a regular basis, especially the following du’a’:

”La ilaha illa Allahu, wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku, wa lahul hamdu, yuhyee wa yumeetu, wa huwa hayyun la yamootu, biyadihil khayru, wa huwa 'ala kulli shay'in qadeer.”

(There is no god but Allah; He is Alone; He has no partner; to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise. He gives life and causes death; and He is Ever-Living and does not die. In His hand lies all what is good; and He is Capable of doing everything.)

“Allahumma inni a'oothu bika minal hammi wal hazan(i), wal 'ajzi wal kasal(i), wal jubni wal bukhl(i), wa dala'-eddayni, wa ghalabatir-rijaal."

(O Allah, protect me from anxiety, grief, helplessness, laziness, cowardice, miserliness, from being overburdened by debt and from being humiliated by people.)

Allah Almighty knows best.
