A NAS A WEEK - 16 SHAWWAL 1438

Zaid ibn Arqam reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, would supplicate, “O Allah, I seek refuge in you from disability, laziness, cowardice, miserliness, weakness, and the punishment of the grave. O Allah, grant my soul a sense of righteousness and purify it, for you are the best purifier. You are the Protector and Guardian. O Allah, I seek refuge in you from knowledge which does not benefit, from a heart that does not fear Allah, from a soul that is not content, and from a supplication that is not answered.” [Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2722; Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Muslim]
