Aboo Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates from the Prophet :

“Whoever recites in the evening three times; I seek protection in the perfect words of Allah from every evil that He has created, then not so much as a stinger (humah) will harm him that evening.”

In Muslim there is a similar wording without mention of reciting the supplication thrice (#2709) and at-Tirmidhee (#3898), and al-‘Alaamah Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him) mentioned it in Tuhfat-ul-Akhyaar, saying: “The noun al-Humah denotes an animal that possess a stinger filled with poison like a scorpion, snake or something similar“. And Suhayl bin Saalih who is one of the narrators of this narration said: “Our people had learned this supplication and we used to recite it every evening when a teenage girl was stung but suffered no pain or affliction (from the sting)”.
