Whenever, you lost your direction and thoughts are not in control, then recite three times with deep heart feeling. All destructive thoughts will gone and confidence will restore. At initial level, you might not feel any change, but to get instant results, try to recite verses of “Surah-Ikhlas” in Arabic and imagine meanings (translation) in your mother language.
Surah-Ikhlas, in Arabic, Urdu and English translation as given below,
بِسۡمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ
قُلۡ هُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ
لَمۡ یَلِدۡۙ وَ لَمۡ یُوۡلَدۡ
وَ لَمۡ یَکُنۡ لَّهّ کُفُوًا اَحَدٌ
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Say: He is Allah, the One and Only!
Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
He begetteth not nor is He begotten.
And there is none like unto Him.
May Allah! protect us and give us inner peace. Ameen!
