Ziyad bin `Ilaqah reported: My uncle Qutbah bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) said that the Prophet
(PBUH) used to supplicate: "
Allahumma inni a`udhu bika min munkaratil-akhlaqi, wal-a`mali, wal-ahwa`i (O
Allah! I seek refuge in You from undesirable manners, deeds, and aspirations)
The prayer is recited to seek Allah's Help in shunning bad manners and observing good manners and
righteous deeds.

Shakal bin Humaid (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I asked: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me a
prayer.'' He (PBUH) said, "
Say: Allahumma inni a`udhu bika min sharri sam`i, wa min sharri basari, wa min sharri
lisani, wa min sharri qalbi, wa min sharri maniyyi (O Allah! I seek refuge in You from the evils of my hearing, the
evils of my seeing, the evils of my tongue; the evils of my heart and the evils of passions)
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
The evil mischief of ears lies in lending them to lies, calumnies, backbiting and other forbidden
things (music etc.), or closing the ears to the truth. The mischief of eyes lies in finding faults with people, looking at
what is forbidden to look at, and ignoring the Signs of Allah scattered everywhere in the universe. The mischief of
the heart lies in occupying one's heart with the love of anyone else other than Allah. "
'' (
) is that sticky
fluid which comes out of the male organ after sexual gratification. Here it means the sexual organs. The mischief of
these lie in using them in a sinful act. One is advised to safeguard one's ears, eyes, heart, sexual organs, and all the
organs of one's body against their improper use in order to gain the Pleasure of Allah. One will be accountable for
all these things on the Day of Judgement.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) used to supplicate: "
Allahumma inni
a`udhu bika minal-barasi, wal-jununi, wal-judhami, wa sayyi'il-asqami' (O Allah! I seek refuge in You from
leucoderma, insanity, leprosy and evil diseases).
[Abu Dawud].
Leucoderma is a disease which gives rise to the appearance of white spots on the skin of body.
Leprosy is a disease which renders one's organs invalid. Madness is mental disorder. All these are very dangerous
diseases. The Prophet (PBUH) has sought Allah's Protection against these and other diseases like paralysis, diabetes,
facial paralysis, cancer, blindness, etc. May Allah save us from all such diseases.

bitanah' [O Allah! I seek refuge in You from hunger; surely, it is the worst companion. And I seek refuge in You
from treachery; surely, it is a bad inner trait]

`Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
A slave who had made a contract with his master to pay for
his freedom, came to me and said: "I am unable to fulfill my obligation, so help me.'' He said to him: "Shall I not
teach you a supplication which the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) taught me? It will surely prove so effective that if
you have a debt as large as a huge mountain, Allah will surely pay it for you. Say: `Allahumm-akfini bihalalika `an
haramika, wa aghnini bifadlika `amman siwaka (O Allah! Grant me enough of what You make lawful so that I may
