O Allah, I seek Your forgiveness and Your protection in this world and the next.

O Allah, I seek Your forgiveness and Your protection in my religion, in my worldly affairs, in my family and in my wealth.

O Allah, conceal my secrets and preserve me from anguish.

O Allah, guard me from what is in front of me and behind me, from my left, and from my right, and from above me. I seek refuge in Your Greatness from being struck down from beneath me.

Best dua on the Day of Arafah

The Prophet صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم‎ said:

The best thing that I and the Prophets have said on the evening of ‘Arafah is :

لَا إِلهَ إِلاّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ المُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمدُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things.

Supplication when stricken with a mishap or overtaken by an affair

Qadarullaahi wa maa shaa’a fa ‘ala
It is the Decree of Allaah and He does whatever He wills [1]

[1] The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allaah, than the weak believer and there is goodness in both. Strive for that which will benefit you, seek help from Allaah and do not despair. If a mishap should happen to befall you then do not say ‘ If only I had acted….such and such would have happened’. Rather say:     ‘Allaah has decreed and what He wills, He does’.    … for verify ‘If’ lets in the work of the devil.’ [Sahih Muslim 4/2052]

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’
