Assalaamu alaikum brothers and sisters.  In light of the horrible violence which is consuming the world in these past few days, tonight including my own country, I found this dua for peace on the Internet and thought I’d share it with you all. 

  “Oh Lord of the Universe! Save us from all words which hurt and bless us with hearts that touch. 

  God, grant us the wisdom to learn from the Guidance that you blessed upon all Your Prophets. 

  Please God, comfort and console those who now walk in sorrow.

  Our Lord, please give us compassion and mutual understanding so that we may live in peace and with justice. 

  Please help us to stop those who oppress, whether they be of our nation, race, or tribe or not. 

  Give us the strength to work for the good of all humanity, and against what is harmful to all of us

  Let our children learn from our errors and work to establish a safer, more peaceful, and just world for all. 

  Guide our leaders to make wise and fair decisions.

  Protect us from hate and intolerance.

  Make us all among those who struggle for what us just, good, and beautiful. Ameen.”
