Syaikh Muhammad bin Shalih rahimahullaah in one of his fatwa stated, "This prayer, I do not know its origin (source) from Assunnah, but it was widely spoken by people." His statement was similar to that also found in Cassette "Nuur 'ala al-Darb" cassette no . 344 minutes to 22.

Syaikh Al-Albani reclaimed him in the Shahihah Lineage 6/902, no. 2886 and said, "Isnad is valid according to Muslim conditions.")

Beside Praying, What Can Be Done?
Allah Ta'ala said,
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ
"O ye who believe, ask for help (to Allah) patiently and (doing) prayer." (QS. Al-Baqarah: 153)

Allah Ta'ala explained that the best way to ask Allah for help in dealing with various calamities (including difficulties in life) is to be patient and pray.

And in a hadith mentioned that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam when faced with a problem then he immediately prayed. (Narrated by Abu Dawud and Ahmad from Hudzaifah ibn Yemen)

Whereas there are two kinds of patience in this verse, namely patience in order to leave various illicit things and sins; and be patient in carrying out obedience and worship. And be patient the second form is more reward, and that is the patient who is closer to getting things easier.

Abdurrahman bin Zaid bin Aslam said, "Patience has two forms: be patient for God by carrying out what he loves even though it is heavy for the soul and body. And be patient for God from all that He hates even though the desire for lust is against him. Who is the condition like this then he belongs to the group of people who are patient who will survive, God willing. "
Patience has two forms: be patient with God by carrying out what he loves even though it is heavy for the soul and body. And be patient for God from all that He hates even though the desire for lust is against him.

Cover
It is better for a Muslim to familiarize himself with the prayer taught by the sunnah in the face of difficulties. Because the person who taught it, namely the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam, is the man who knows best with the right and most useful prayer. And you should also choose only valid prayers, because there are a number of narrations that mention or contain requests for convenience but dhaif. Therefore, it is important for us to record and memorize the prayers taught by the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam whether they are general in nature or bound to time and place. Although there is no prohibition to pray in any sentence or language, because Allah is omniscient about what His servant has said. Wallahu Ta’ala a’lam. Allah knows best . . .
