Suggested du’a for driving in slippery conditions 

‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has quoted a Scholar from the past to have suggested the following du’a for protection against ones conveyance skidding/slipping:

 

إنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولا

InnAllaha yumsikus samawati wal arda an tazula

Indeed Allah Ta’ala is the One who keeps the heavens and the earth from moving/shaking.

 

The full incident

Muhadith Ibrahim ibn Isma’il (rahimahullah) narrates that his father mentioned:

I was on journey from Harran to Al-Musil during the season of winter, mud and rainfall. Many people’s camels were falling, and people were facing severe harsh conditions. I feared for myself, knowing well my feeble state, so I slept and I heard someone saying ‘Should I not teach you something if you read it your camel will not fall and you will be safe?’ I said ‘Of course and may you be rewarded.’ So he said to me, say:

 إنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولا

I recited it and my camel never falter/fall till we reached Al-Musil and people incurred a lot of damage due to their camels falling whilst what I had was saved.

(Al-Ibtihaj, bi adhkaril musafiri wal haaj)

This du’a is quite apt and is derived from Ayah: 41 in Surah: 35

Recite frequently when driving in bad weather
