Can you please provide the reference and Arabic text for this supplication:

O Allah, I ask you for your love and the love of those who love you and the love of those deeds that will bring me your love. O Allah, make your love more beloved to me than myself, my family and even cold water

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Dawud (‘alayhis salam) would make the following du’a:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ، وَحُبَّ مَنْ يُحِبُّكَ، وَالعَمَلَ الَّذِي يُبَلِّغُنِي حُبَّكَ، اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ حُبَّكَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيَّ مِنْ نَفْسِي وَأَهْلِي، وَمِنَ المَاءِ البَارِدِ

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3490. Declared sound by Imam Tirmidhi)

 

Transliteration 

Allahumma inni asaluka hubbaka wa hubba may yuhibbuka wal ‘amalaladhi yuballighuni hubbak. Allahummaj’al hubbaka ahabba ilayya min nafsi wa ahli wa minal ma il barid

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
