Short but powerful dua

The *SHORTEST* but *POWERFUL* Dua - *_Are you aware of it_* ?

Al-'Abbās, the uncle of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم , came to the Prophet ﷺ & said: *“Ya Rasulullah ﷺ* teach me a du'ā'.”*
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “O my uncle, say:

*Allāhumma inni asaluka al āfiyah*

(O ﷲ , I ask you for *āfiyah*)

Now, What is *āfiyah* ?

*Āfiyah* means “to save me from any afflictions.
To be healthy, you are in *āfiyah*.
To have enough money to live, you are in *āfiyah*.
To have your children protected, you are in *āfiyah*.
And if you are forgiven and not punished, you are in *āfiyah*.

*Āfiyah* means :

“*O ﷲ , protect me from any pain and suffering*” This includes Duniya and Aakhirah.

Al-'Abbās thought about this for a while, and then he came back after a few days and said (paraphrased):

“Ya Rasūlullāh ﷺ this du'ā' seems a little short. I want something big.”

Rasulullah ﷺ said, “My dear uncle, ask ﷲ for *'āfiyah*, for wallāhi, you cannot be given anything better than *'āfiyah*.”

It is a simple Du'ā'. Sincerely mean what you say.

_“O ﷲ , I ask You to be saved from any distress, grief, hardship, harm. Don't test me.”_

All of this is included in *Allāhumma inni asaluka al-'āfiyah*

Riyadh As Saliheen, Sunan At-Tirmidhi
