Prayers for refuge that have been narrated from the Prophet (PBUH)
Autho bi kalimaat-illaah il-taammati min sharri ma khalaq
(I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from the evil of that which He has created)
Autho bi kalimaat Allah Al-taammah min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli 'aynin laammah
(I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah, from every devil and every poisonous reptile, and from every evil eye)
The following were mentioned by Ibn Al-Qayyim in Zaad Al-Ma'aad:
Autho bi kalimaat-illaah il-taammaati allati laa yujaawizuhunna barrun wa laa faajir, min sharri ma khalaqa wa dhara'a wa bar a'a, wa min sharri ma yanzilu min Al-samaa'i wa min sharri ma ya'ruju fiha, wa min sharri ma dhara'a fi'l-ardi wa min sharri ma yakhruju minha, wa min sharri fitan Al-layli wa'lnahaar, wa min sharri tawaariq Al-layl, ilia taariqan yatruqu bi khayr, ya Rahmaan.
(I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah which no righteous or evildoer can fully comprehend, from the evil of that which He has created and brought into being, and from the evil of that which descends from the heavens, and from the evil of that which ascends therein, and from the evil of that which He has created on earth, and from the evil of that which emerges there from, and from the evil of the trials of night and day, and from the evil of those who come at night, except those who bring good, O Most Merciful).
Autho bi kalimaat-illaah il-taammati min ghadabihi wa 'iqaabihi wa min sharri 'ibaadihi wa min hamazaat Al-shayaateen wa an yahduroon.
(I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from His wrath and punishment, and from the evil of His slaves, and from the whispers of the devils and from their being present).
Allah humma inni autho bi wajhika'l-kareem, wa kalimaatik Al-taammaati min sharri ma anta aakhidhun bi naasiyatihi. Allah humma anta takshif Al-ma'tham wa'l-maghrama. Allah humma innahu laa yuhzamu junduka wa la yukhlaf wa'duka, subhaanaka wa bi hamdika.
(O Allah, I seek refuge in Your noble Countenance and in Your perfect words, from the evil of that which You seize by the forelock (i.e., have full control over). O Allah, You forgive sin and relieve distress. O Allah, Your troops cannot be defeated, Your promise cannot be overturned, glory and praise be to You).
Allah humma anta rabbiy, laa ilaaha illa anta, 'alayka tawakkaltu wa anta rabb ul arsh il-'azeem. Ma shaa'a Allaahu kaana wa ma lam yasha' lam yakun wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata ilia Billaah. A'lamu anna Allaaha 'ala kulli shay'in qadeer wa anna Allaaha qad ahaata bi kulli shay'in 'ilman wa ahsa kulla shay'in 'adadan. Allah humma inni autho bika min sharri nafsi wa min sharri'l-shaytaani wa sharakihi wa min sharri kulli daabbatin anta aakhidhun bi naasiyatihi, inna rabbiy 'ala siraatin mustaqeem.
(O Allah, You are my Lord, there is no god but You. In You have I put my trust and You are the Lord of the mighty Throne. Whatever Allah wills happens and whatever He does not will does not happen. There is no power and no strength except with Allah. I know that Allah is Able to do all things and that Allah has encompassed all things with His knowledge and has counted the number of all things. O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the evil of my own self and from the evil of the Shaytaan and his traps and from the evil of every creature You seize by the forelock (i.e., have full control over). Verily my Lord is on a straight path).
Ibn Al-Qayyim said:
Those who have tried these Dua's and prayers for refuge know their value and benefit, and how great a need there is for them. By Allah's permission they prevent the effects of the eye from taking hold and repel them, depending on the strength of faith of the one who says them, and the strength of his soul, his potential, and the strength of his trust in Allah and the steadfastness of his heart. For they are a weapon, and a weapon is only as good as the one who wields it. Zaad Al-Ma'aad, 4/170
