Supplication is one of the most beneficial remedies, it is the enemy of affliction, it fends it off and treats it, obstructs its befalling and uplifts it if it descends. It is the weapon of the believer, as al-Hakim has collected in his Sahih on the authority of Ali bin Abi Talib who said: ‘The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘Supplication is the weapon of the believer and the pillar of the religion and the light of the heavens and the earth.’”

There are three possible scenarios pertaining to supplication:

One: It is stronger than the calamity, thus, it repels it.

Two: It is weaker than the calamity, and so the calamity overpowers it and the servant is afflicted. However, the supplication can lessen the effect of the calamity, even slightly.

Three: They combat each other, each cancelling out the other.

Al-Hakim reports in his Sahih on the authority of Aisha who said: ‘The Messenger of Allah said to me: ‘Caution cannot evade the decree from occurring and supplication benefits in that which has descended and that which has not. Indeed, the calamity may befall and is met by a supplication causing them to both struggle against one another until the day of resurrection.’”

Al-Hakim also reported on the authority of Ibn Umar who narrated that the Prophet said: “Supplication benefits in that which has descended and that which has not, thus it is imperative upon you, O’ servants of Allah, to supplicate.”

Also, on the authority of Thawban: “Decree is not repelled by anything other than supplication, none other than righteousness can increase lifespan, and certainly a man can be denied some provisions due to a sin he perpetrates.”
