Dua: Accepting Allah's Decree (Qadr)

bruce almighty submit surrender quote fate predestination qadr god
After experiencing divine power, even 'Bruce Almighty' had to submit to Tawheed.

This short dua is traditionally noted as the prayer to be recited when seeing a falling star/comet. Many extended variations are narrated in the ahadith but as this was one of the first I learned in my personal journey to accept Allah's plans, I'm sharing it with whomever is reading.

The Du`a:
ما شاء الله لا قوة إلا بالله


Masha'Allahu, la quwwata illa billahu.

Whatever Allah wishes (I am happy with/I accept), none has the power (to transform, add/deduct) except Allah.

Mâ-shâ'-allâh (text: ما شاء الله)

mâ; = what, whatever, that
shâ' = wish, want, willingness, intent
allâh = Allâh

Used in positivity: 'How wonderful are the works of Allah!'
Literally meaning: 'Whatever Allah has intended / That which Allah has willed'

Lâ hawla wa lâ quwwata illâ billâh (text: لا حول ولاقوة إلا بالله)

lâ = no, not, none, neither
hawla = change, motion, transformation, power
wa = and
lâ = no, not, none, neither
quwwata = strength, power, potency, intensity
illâ = but, except
bi = with, to, for, in, through
'illâh = Allâh

As-Sufi notes on 'quwwa'.
