In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Hereunder are the Du’as Nabi (ﷺ) made for various Sahabah:

‏ “‏ اللَّهُمَّ عَلِّمْهُ الْحِكْمَةَ ‏”‏‏

Translation: Ibn Abaas (Radhiallahu Anhuma) narrates:

Once the Prophet () embraced me (pressed me to his chest) and said, “O Allah, teach him wisdom (i.e. the understanding of the knowledge of Qur’an).

(Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

“‏ اللَّهُمَّ عَلِّمْهُ الْحِكْمَةَ وَتَأْوِيلَ الْكِتَابِ ‏”‏

‘O Allah, teach him wisdom and the (correct) interpretation of the Book.’

(Sunan Ibn-Maajah)

أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ وَهَامَّةٍ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لاَمَّةٍ

Nabi () used to seek refuge with Allah for Hasan and Husain (Radhiallahu Anhuma) and say: “Your forefather (i.e.Ebrahim Alaihis-salaam) used to seek Refuge with Allah for Ismaill and Ishaaq (Alaihimusalaam) by reciting the following:

‘O Allah! I seek Refuge with Your Perfect Words from every devil and from poisonous pests and from every evil, harmful, envious eye.’

(Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

‏ “‏ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ هَادِيًا مَهْدِيًّا وَاهْدِ بِهِ ‏”‏ ‏

Nabi () said to Mu’awiyah (Radhiallahuanhu): “O Allah, make him a guiding one, and guide (others) by him.”

(Jaami Al- Tirmidhi)

أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ

Translation: A man who was stung by a scorpion was brought to Nabi (). He said: Had he said the word: “I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from the evil of what He created, “he would not have been stung, or he said, “It would not have harmed him.”

(Sunan Abu-Dawood)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
