Dua Ne’mul Badal: Dua that Umm Salama was Taught

Dua Nemul Badal

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) taught Umm Salama (RA) the prayer known as Dua Ne’mul Badal after viewing her grief over her husband’s death.

Janabe Umme Salama (RA) was a widow in Medina who was in distress when she asked the Prophet (pbuh) for a prayer. During the Battle of Uhud, Umme Salama’s (RA) husband Abu Salama Abd Allah ibn Abd al-Asad—whom she regarded as the best in the world was killed. She was asked to perform this dua by the Prophet (pbuh). As a result, she married the best human being on Earth, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), at a time when she had little possibility of living a dignified and good life.
