A short dua

••A SHORT but POWERFUL Dua •• Are you aware of it?

Al-'Abbās, [رضي الله عنه ] the uncle of the Prophet , came to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) and said: “Ya Rasūlullāh, teach me a du'ā'.”
The Prophet (صلي الله عليه وسلم ) said: “O my uncle, say:

Allāhumma inni asaluka al Aāfiyah
اللهم إني أسألك العافية

(O Allāh, I ask you for Aāfiyah)

•••Now, What is Aāfiyah ?

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

● Aāfiyah means :

“O Allāh, protect me from any pain and suffering” This includes Dunya and Aakhirah.•••

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

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

The Prophet (صلي الله عليه وسلم ) said, “My dear uncle, ask Allāh for Aāfiyah, for Wallāhi, you cannot be given anything better than Aāfiyah.”

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

“O Allāh, 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-Aāfiyah
اللهم إني أسألك العافية
Riyadh As Saliheen, Sunan At-Tirmidhi
