The Prophet’s (s.a.w.) Du’a of Protection

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A mother asked Habib `Umar al-Hafizh (q.s.) for something to read for protection for her children.  He told her to read over them Ayat al-Kursi, Surah al-Ikhlasw, Surah al-Falaq and Surat an-Naas and then the following du’a:

A’iyydzuka bikalimaati Allah at-taamat min kulli shaythaan wa haammat wa kulli ‘ayni laammat.

I seek Refuge for you in the complete Words of Allah from every devil, every creature and every evil eye.

ibn `Abbas (r.a.) narrates that the Prophet (s.a.w.) used these words to protect al-Hasan (r.a.) and al-Husayn (r.a.) and he would say, "Your father (Ibrahim) used these words to protect Isma'il and Ishaq.”

Haswantuka bi al-Hayyu al-Qayyum al-ladzii laa yamuutu Abadan wa da gha’atu ‘anka as-suu’in bi al-fi al-fi al-fi.  Laa hawla wa laa quwwata ilaa bi Allah al-‘Aliyyu al-‘azhiim.

I place you in the Protection of the Living, the Self-Sufficient, Who Never Dies and I drive evil away from you with “there is no strength nor might except in Allah, the Sublime ,the Almighty” a billion times over.

Please note: the pronoun used here is for a singular male.  If we are reading it for a girl, we replace the “ka” with “ki” and if we are reading it for more than one child, we use the plural “kum”.
