The Dua is our tool to get connected to our Lord. The Messenger of Allah has taught us many supplications and indeed the meaning of his duas are many( and of-course meaningful), we find that most of those Supplications are relevant to our tiring and tough times.
One such Dua is :
“Allahumma innee a’udhu bika min Jaaris Suu, wa min zawjin tushayyibunee 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“
Abu Hurairah – Radhiyallahu anhu said:
From his (The Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi wa Salam) supplications was:
“Oh Allah! I seek refuge in you from an evil neighbor;
and from a wife that causes me to grow old before old age;
and from a son who will become a master over me;
and from wealth that becomes a punishment for me
and from a cunning friend whose gaze is upon me and whose heart is plotting and planning against me, such that if he sees something good, he buries it, and if he sees something bad he spreads it“
(Collected by At Tabaraani in ‘Ad Dua’ (3/1425/1339) and its chain is declared ‘Jayyid’ (Good) by Shaikh Al Albaani in silsilatul Ahaadeethus Saheehah (No#3137)
This beautiful dua teaches us to ask Allah to protect us from the evil in people. The evil that they may have towards us. A believer must learn the supplications that are taught to us by Rasool Allah (Sallalahu-alaihi-wasalam)
May Allah protect us all.
