After being a Muslim, always Seek refuge in Allah from 8 things
Hafizi Azmi Wednesday, January 08, 2014It is narrated in many ahadeeth that the Prophet (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) would consistently make this du'a, and many of the Companions heard him repeat it over and over.
اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الهم والحزن ، والعجز والكسل والبخل والجبن ، وضلع الدين وغلبة الرجال
Transliteration: Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minal-hammi wal-huzni wal-’ajazi wal-kasli wal-bukhli wal-jubni wa dala’id-dayni wa ghalabatir-rijal.
English Translation: O Allah, I take refuge in You from (i) anxiety and (ii) sorrow, (iii) weakness and (iv) laziness, (v) miserliness and (vi) cowardice, (vii) the burden of debts and (viii) from being overpowered by men.
(i) anxiety - to be worried about the future
(ii) sorrow - to be in grief about the past
(iii) weakness - incapability in doing something good
(iv) laziness - being lackadaisical
(v) miserliness - being stingy in spending in good
