Refuge from four


The Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to say,

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الأَرْبَعِ: مِنْ عِلْمٍ لَا يَنْفَعُ، وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لَا يَخْشَعُ، وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ لَا تَشْبَعُ، وَمِنْ دُعَاءٍ لَا يُسْمَعُ

Allaahumma innee a`oothu bika minal-arba`, min `ilmin laa yanfa`, wa min qalbin laa yakhsha`, wa min nafsin laa tashba’u, wa min du`aa-in laa yusma`u

“O Allaah I seek Your refuge from four: from knowledge which does not benefit; from a heart which does not fear; from a soul which is never satisfied; and from a supplication which is not heard.”

[Collected by Ahmad, Aboo Daawood and others]
