It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that ‘Aishah said:

“I noticed the Prophet (ﷺ) was not there one night, so I started looking for him with my hand. My hand touched his feet and they were held upright, and he was prostrating and saying: ‘I seek refuge in Your pleasure from Your anger, in Your forgiveness from Your punishment, and I seek refuge in You from You. I cannot praise You enough, You are as You have praised yourself.'”

The Supplication Narrated by Zayd ibn Arqam – radiyallaahu anhu

The Supplication Narrated by Zayd ibn Arqam - radiyallaahu anhu

Imaam Muslim -rahimahullaah- reported in his “Saheeh” (The Book of Remembrance, Supplication, Repentance, and Seeking Forgiveness):[no. 2722]:

“Aboo Bakr ibn Abee Shaybah, Ishaaq ibn Ibraaheem, and Muhammad ibn `Abdillaah ibn Numayr narrated to us -and the wording is that of Ibn Numayr: Aboo Mu`aawiyah (Ishaaq said: “He related to us”; and the other two said: “He narrated to us”): from `Aasim: from `Abdullaah ibn al-Haarith; and from Aboo `Uthmaan an-Nahdee: from Zayd ibn Arqam, who said: “I do not say to you except that which Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم used to say. He used to say:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَالْجُبْنِ وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْهَرَمِ وَعَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ
اللَّهُمَّ آتِ نَفْسِي تَقْوَاهَا وَزَكِّهَا أَنْتَ خَيْرُ مَنْ زَكَّاهَا أَنْتَ وَلِيُّهَا وَمَوْلاَهَا
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لاَ يَنْفَعُ وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لاَ يَخْشَعُ وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ لاَ تَشْبَعُ وَمِنْ دَعْوَةٍ لاَ يُسْتَجَابُ لَهَا

Allaahumma innee a`oodhu bika minal-`ajzi wal-kasali wal-jubni wal-bukhli wal-harami wa `adhaabil-qabr. Allaahumma Aati nafsee taqwaahaa, wa zakkihaa, Anta khayru man zakkaahaa, Anta Waliyyuhaa wa Mawlaahaa. Allaahummaa innee a`oodhu bika min `ilmin laa yanfa`u, wa min qalbin laa yakh-sha`u, wa min nafsin laa tashba`u, wa min da`watin laa yustajaabu lahaa.

“O Allaah! I seek your refuge from incapacity, laziness, cowardice, miserliness, decrepit old age, and punishment of the grave. O Allaah! Grant my soul its dutifulness (taqwaa), and purify it, You are the One to purify it: You are its Guardian and its Lord. O Allaah! I seek Your refuge from knowledge that does not benefit, and from a heart that is not humble, and from a soul that is never satisfied, and from a supplication that is not answered’.”

Also reported by Ahmad (4/371), at-Tirmidhee (no.3572) -in abridged form, and by an-Nasaa·ee (no.5458).

Imaam Aboo Zakariyyaa an-Nawawee -rahimahullaah- (d.676 H) said in his explanation of “Saheeh Muslim”:

“This hadeeth, and others besides it, which occur in rhyming form, are a proof for what the scholars say: that what is blameworthy regarding making it in rhyming form is that which is artificially contrived, for that removes humility, submissiveness, and sincerity; and it diverts from humble beseeching, showing ones state of need, and ones heart being free from preoccupation. As for that which is done without artificial contrivance, and without having to apply thought, due to a persons eloquence and the like, or it is something memorized, then there is no harm, rather it is something good.

And the meaning of (a soul that is never satisfied) is seeking refuge from craving, covetousness, and greed; and from the souls becoming attached to distant hopes;

and the meaning of (purify it) is to cleanse it;

and the word “Khayr” (the best One) is not to show excellence over others, but rather its meaning is: no one can purify it except You; just as he said: “You are its (only) Guardian.”

Imaam Abul-`Abbaas al-Qurtubee -rahimahullaah- (d.656 H) said in his explanation of “Saheeh Muslim”, “al-Mufhim” (7/50):

“(O Allaah! I seek Your refuge from knowledge that does not benefit): it is that which is not acted upon…”

al-Haafiz Muhammad `Abdur-Rahmaan al-Mubaarakfooree -rahimahullaah- (d.1353 H) said in his explanation of the “Sunan” of at-Tirmidhee, “TuhfatulAhwadhee”(10/14):

“(From cowardice):…i.e. from being miserly with ones soul, and not being brave upon obedience; and he sought refuge from it because it leads to punishment in the Hereafter, because he will flee from the battlefield, and enter under Allaah”s threat of punishment: for one who flees has earned Anger from Allaah; and he may be put to trial in his Religion, and so turn apostate, because of cowardice overcoming him, and his fear of falling into captivity and enslavement;

(…miserliness ):…i.e. from failing to benefit others with wealth and knowledge, and with other than these two; even if it be with sincere advice. at-Teebee said: “Generosity is either with ones soul, which is bravery, and its opposite is cowardice; or with wealth, and it is to be generous in giving, and its opposite is miserliness; and bravery and generosity will not be found combined except in a soul that is complete; and they will not both be absent except in one that is at the limit of deficiency;

(… decrepit old age):…it is senility, such that a person returns to being how he was initially, when he was a baby: weak in his body, weak in his intellect, weak in his comprehension;…it is the state of senility, and of being to weak to carry out the obligatory duties, and to take care of himself with respect to cleaning himself; so he becomes dependent upon his family; a burden to them, and they wish for his death; and if he has no family, then the calamity is worse…

( and from punishment of the grave): meaning from that which necessitates its punishment…”

Mullaa `Alee al-Qaaree said in his “Mirqaatul-Mafaateeh” 95/369):

(O Allaah! I seek your refuge from incapacity): meaning inability to perform acts of obedience, and lacking the strength for worship; (and laziness): meaning being sluggish to do good;

(cowardice): i.e. lacking the courage to oppose ones soul and Satan;

(and miserliness): i.e. withholding from spending ones wealth in the ways pleasing to the Lord; (and decrepit old age): i.e. becoming senile, and decrepit old age, such that after having knowledge he returns to a state of knowing nothing;

(and punishment of the grave): with respect to tightness, darkness, desolation; and being struck with iron clubs, and bitten by scorpions, snakes, and the like; or from the punishment that comes about in it for carrying tales, and for not cleaning oneself, and the like;

(O Allaah! Grant): i.e. give; (my soul its dutifulness):: i.e. that it is safeguarded from forbidden things. at-Teebee said: It is befitting that “taqwaa” is explained to be that which is opposite to acts of evil, as in His Saying -He the Most High:

فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا
[Sooratush-Shams (9):8]
[[Meaning: So He made him aware of acts of obedience and acts of disobedience]];

and it is to be on ones guard against following ones desires, and committing sinful and shameful acts, because the hadeeth is like an explanation and a clarification of the Aayah. So his saying ‘Grant” shows that the meaning of (al-ilhaam) “inspiring/giving awareness” in the Aayah means creating the impulse which leads him to avoid the things mentioned;

and his saying (and purify it, You are the One to purify it): shows that the purification of the soul mentioned in the Aayah is an ascription of something earned by the servant, not creation of the action by him -as is claimed by the Mu`tazilah…;

( You are its Guardian): i.e. the One Who supports and aids it. This relates back to his saying “Grant my soul its dutifulness“. it is as if he is saying: Aid it upon doing whatever will be a means to Your being pleased with it, since You are its Guardian; (and its Lord): this relates back to his saying “and purify it”, i.e. cleanse it, by Your correcting and disciplining it just as a master disciplines a slave…;

(O Allaah! I seek Your refuge from knowledge that does not benefit): at-Teebee said: meaning knowledge which I do not act upon, and which I do not teach to the people; and which does not refine manners, sayings, and actions; or knowledge which is not needed in the Religion; or which no permission occurs in the Religion to teach it…;

(and from a heart that is not humble): i.e. that does not find peace and calmness in the remembrance of Allaah;

(and from a soul that is never satisfied): with that which Allaah has given it; and it does not suffice itself with the provision given to him by Allaah; so he never wearies of amassing wealth, because of his great craving; or from a soul that eats a great amount. Ibnul-Malik said: Meaning its eagerness upon amassing wealth and acquiring positions; or it is said: it is upon what is apparent from it: either on account of his craving: his craving for this world, such that he is unable to devour enough to remove his hunger; or that the hunger of cows overcomes him, which is hunger of the body parts, even when the stomach is full: opposite to the desire found in dogs; (and from a supplication that is not answered)…”

Tremondous Du'a - Seeking refuge with Allaah from Evil People around you

Today we had our brother Abdullah Jamaal ‘Abbaas, one of the students of Sheikh Muhammad Sa’eed Rslan (may Allah preserve him and his family), come into the studio today to read this du’aa.  Please listen to it and try to repeat it as best you can.

Memorize it!  You can do it n’shaa Allah.

May Allah bless and accept you.

اللهمَّ إني أعوذ بكَ من جارِ السُّوءِ ، ومن زوج تشيِّبني قبلَ المشيبِ ، ومن ولد يكونُ عليّ رَبّاً، ومن مالٍ يكونُ عَليّ عذاباً ، ومن خليلٍ ماكرٍ عينُه تراني ، وقلبُه يرعاني ؛ إنْ رأى حسنةً دفنَها ، وإذا رأى سيئّئةً أذاعَها

Abu Hurayrah (radee’Allaahu anhu) said that from his (Messenger of Allaah, sallAllaahu alayhee wa aalehee wasalam) supplications were:

“Oh Allaah, I seek refuge with you

  • from an evil neighbour; and
  • from a wife who causes me to grow old before old age; and
  • from a son who will become a master over me; and
  • from wealth which will become a punishment for me; and
  • from a cunning friend whose gaze is upon me & whose heart is plotting & planning against me, such that if he sees something good, he buries it & if he sees something bad he spreads it.”

(The transliteration of which is:

“Allahumma innee a’udhu bika min Jaaris Suu, wa min zawjin tashayyabanee qablal masheeb, wa min waladin yakoonu alaiyya rabban, wa min maalin yakoonu alaiyya ‘adhaaban, wa min khaleelin maakirin, ‘ainuhu taraanee, wa qalbuhu yar’aanee, in yaraa hasanatan dafanahaa, wa in yaraa sayyi’a’tan adhaa’ahaa“

Seeking Refuge from the Evil Eye for Children
Compiled & Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

From Ibn Abbas who said the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam used to seek refuge for al-Hassan and al-Hussein, he would say:

‘I seek refuge for you two with Allaah’s perfect words from every Shaytaan (devil) and poisonous creature and every evil eye.’

He sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said that this is how Ibrahim used to seek refuge for Ishaaq and Ismaeel.’
[Collected by Bukhari & Tirmidhi with the extra wording, authenticated by Albaani]

An Explanation:

Abul Ulaa AbdurRahmaan al-Mubarakfooree -Rahimullaah- said:

‘Allaah’s words’: ‘It has been said that they are the Qur’aan and it has also been said they are Allaah’s names.’

‘Perfect’:  ‘Al-Jazari said: ‘Indeed Allaah’s speech has been described as being Perfect, because it is not permissible for any of His speech to have deficiency or fault like there is in the speech of people.’

‘It has been said that the meaning of ‘Perfect’ here is that it benefits the one seeking refuge with these ‘Perfect words’, and protect him from illnesses and this would be sufficient for him.’

‘Poisonous creature’:   ‘Every type of creature that kills with poison. And it is possible that it could mean any crawling animal even if it does not kill, like insects.’

‘Evil eye’:  ‘From every evil type of affliction from the eye.’

[Taken from: ‘Tuhfahtul Ahawadhi’ an explanation of Sunan at-Tirmidhi]

 How to Seek Refuge from the Evil Eye for Children
By the  Muhaddith, Shaykh, Allamaa’  Muhammad Nasir uddeen al-Albaani -Rahimullaah-
Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Shaykh al-Albaani was asked over the phone:

Phone rings.

Shaykh:  yes!

Caller: Aslaamu alaykum.

Shaykh: Wa alaykum as-Salaam.

Caller:   O Shaykh regarding ‘I seek refuge for you two with Allaah’s perfect words from every Shaytaan (devil) and poisonous creature and every evil eye.’ Is this said three consecutive times or just once?

Shaykh:   No, it is mentioned once, however if it appears to the one saying this Dua’ that he needs to repeat it without specifying three times, then there is no problem with that.

Caller:      and should he place his hand on the head of the one sought refuge for?

Shaykh:       Yes, yes!

Caller:         Even in congregation, if it is a group of children together, how can he place his hand upon all of them?

Shaykh:       He should place his two hands on two of the children, then repeat this on the rest of the children.

Caller:         Right hand and left hand, with both hands?

Shaykh:  Yes, yes.

Caller:    Regarding the hadeeth that the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam

would not sleep until he recited Soorah Mulk, al – Isra, Zumar, and Sajdah, is this when he lies down on his bed at night, or before he lies down?

Shaykh:  What is important is that he recites before he falls asleep, whether it is whilst he is sitting or lying then it is up to him’

O Allah, I take refuge in You from the punishment of the grave, from the torment of the Fire, from the trials and tribulations of life and death and from the evil affliction of Al-Maseeh Ad-Dajjal

Listen / Download Mp3

The below was taken from Fatwas of Nur `Ala Al-Darb  alifta.net

The majority of scholars held the view that this Du`a’ (supplication) falls under the category of stressed Sunnah. It was been reported on the authority of Tawus, one of the great Tabi`un (Followers, the generation after the Companions of the Prophet) that this Du`a’ is obligatory. Tawus is also reported to have ordered his son to repeat his Salah when he knew that he did not recite this Du`a’. This indicates that such Du`a’ is a stressed Sunnah, which the Mu’min should not miss in obligatory or voluntary Salah.

People are subject to trials in their lives and after death. One may commit sins or Bid`ah (innovation in Islam), or be exposed to Kufr (disbelief) in Allah’s Religion. One might be tempted with wealth, lusts, sins, or evil company, and commit acts which displease Allah, whether it be Kufr, Bid`ah, or sins during their lives or at their death. We ask Allah to grant us protection from it. One may be tested with the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal if they live during the time when he appears. Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal will appear at the end of time, claiming to be a prophet and lord of all creation. Many people will follow him. We seek refuge with Allah from this. They will be doomed because of their following him. One should ask the Lord to protect them from these trials, because they do not know whether they will be saved or not. Therefore, one must ask Allah to protect them from the torment of Hellfire, the punishment of the grave, the trials of life and death and the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal. Everyone is in need of this Du`a’ so that they will not be tried in their life or upon dying; and so that they will not experience the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal if they happen to live at the time when he appears. We ask Allah to save us from this.

Shaikh Zaid Al-Madkhalee clarifies this Du’aa as Expiation of Minor Shirk

Question: Noble Shaikh, from that which is well-known and agreed upon, is that verily all of the sins and disobediences [that one does puts him/her] under the Mashiyyah [Will] of Allaah. If Allaah wills, He may forgive him and if Allaah wills He may punish him except for Shirk; for verily Allaah does not forgive it [the sin of Shirk] due to the statement of the Most High: “Indeed Allaah does not forgive that you join partners in worship with Him but He forgives what is lesser than that for whomever He wills.”  [4:48] But I read in a book entitled Zaadul Muslim Al-Yaumee [The Muslim’s Daily Provision] that verily whoever says in a day: “Oh Allaah! Indeed I seek refuge with You that I associate in worship with You while I know and I seek Your Forgiveness For what I don’t know.” That Allaah shall cause the Major Shirk and the Minor Shirk to depart from him, so is the one who says this du’aa everyday forgiven for his sins?

Answer by Shaikh Zaid Bin Muhammad Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah):

The Taubah (repentance) wipes out that which preceded it. Seeking forgiveness and having regret is Taubah (repentance).
The hadeeth mentions the expiation of minor shirk, which is Riyaa` [doing acts of worship to be seen of men].

Tafseer Ibn Katheer :

(And say: “My Lord! I seek refuge with You from the whisperings of the Shayatin.”) Allah commanded him to seek refuge with Him from the Shayatin, because no trick could help you against them and you cannot protect yourself by being kind to them. We have already stated, when discussing Isti`adhah (seeking refuge), that the Messenger of Allah used to say,'A`outhu bil lãhi 'as-samee`il-`aleemi minash-shaytãnir-rajeemi, min hamzihi, wa naphkhihi, wa nafthihi‘A`outhu bil lãhi ‘as-samee`il-`aleemi minash-shaytãnir-rajeemi, min hamzihi, wa naphkhihi, wa nafthihi
I seek refuge with Allah, the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the accursed Shayatin, from his whisperings, evil suggestions and insinuations.

His saying:

(“And I seek refuge with You, My Lord! lest they should come near me.”) means, in any issue of my life. So we are commanded to mention Allah at the beginning of any undertaking, in order to ward off the Shayatin at the time of eating, intercourse, slaughtering animals for food, etc.

Dua to ward off the deception of the Obstinate Shaytaans

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم Protecting Himself from the Shayaateen

Ja’far bin Sulaymaan ad-Duba’ee narrated: Aboo at-Tayyaaj narrated to us, he said: “I said to ‘Abdur-Rahmaan bin Khanbash at-Tameemee – and he was an old man – ‘did you reach the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم (during his lifetime)?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ He said: ‘So I said: How did the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم act on the night the shayaateen plotted against him?’ So he said: ‘Indeed the shayaateen descended that night upon the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم from the valleys and mountain paths, and amongst them was a shaytaan, in his hand was a flame of fire, wanting to burn the face of Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم with it. So Jibreel – عليه السلام – descended to him and said: ‘O Muhammad! Say:

What is said to ward off the deception of the Obstinate Shaytaans ‘A’oodhu bikalimaatil-laahit-taammaatil-latee laa yujaawizuhunna barrun wa laa faajirun
min sharri maa khalaqa,wa bara’a wa dhara’a,
wa min sharri maa yanzilu minas-samaa’i,
wa min sharri maa ya’ruju feehaa,
wa min sharri maa dhara’a fil-ardhi,
wa min sharri maa yakhruju minhaa,
wa min sharri fitanil-layli wannahaari,
wa min sharri kulli taariqin ‘illaa taariqan yatruqu bikhayrin yaa Rahmaan

(( I seek refuge by the complete, perfect words of Allaah, which no righteous one nor wicked one can exceed, from the evil of what He has created, and from the evil of what descends from the heavens, and from the evil of what ascends to them, and from the evil of what is sown in the earth and is created, and from the evil of what comes out from it, and from the evil of the fitan of the night and the day, and from the evil of everyone who comes knocking, except for the one who comes knocking with khayr, O Rahmaan! ))

So it (this du’aa) extinguished their fire, and Allaah تبارك و تعالى defeated them.” [2]
