Du’a Invoked By Nabi Salih (‘A)

After sending Nabi Hud (‘a), Allah sent in His Mercy Nabi Salih (‘a) to the community of the Thamud. The Thamuds, although greatly endowed with skills and civilisation, were practicing idolatry. Nabi Salih (‘a) pleaded with them but they rejected Nabi Salih (‘a), and even hamstrung the Sign Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, sent to them in the form of a she-camel. They accused Nabi Salih (‘a) of lying. And so, when nothing would reform them, they were destroyed.

When they refused the message, Nabi Salih (‘a) did the Du’a like this:

رَبِّ انْصُرْني بِما كَذَّبونِ

“O my Rabb! Help me because they accuse of lying.” (23:39).
