There was one sahabi who was a jew before, most probably Abdullah ibn Salaam or Kaab Ahbar (ra), who said if I did not read this particular dua, the jews would turn me into a donkey. Which dua is it?

Q: There was one sahabi who was a jew before, most probably Abdullah ibn Salaam or Kaab Ahbar (ra), who said if I did not read this particular dua, the jews would turn me into a donkey. Which dua is it?

Bismillaah

A: The dua your are referring to is the Dua of Ka’b Ahbaar. He was not a Sahaabi, instead he was a Tabi’ee. Below is the dua.

أعُوْذُ بِوَجْهِ اللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ الَّذِيْ لَيْسَ شَيْءٌ أعْظَمَ مِنْهُ وَبِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّاتِ الَّتِيْ لَا يُجَاوِزُهُنَّ بَرٌّ وَلَا فَاجِرٌ وَبِأسْمَاءِ اللهِ الْحُسْنَى مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهَا وَمَا لَمْ أعْلَم مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ وَذَرَأ وَبَرَأ

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن القعقاع : أن كعب الأحبار قال : لولا كلمات أقولهن لجعلتني يهود حمارا فقيل له : ما هن ؟ قال : أعوذ بوجه الله العظيم الذي ليس شيء أعظم منه وبكلمات الله التامات التي لا يجاوزهن بر ولا فاجر وبأسماء الله الحسنى ما علمت منها وما لم أعلم من شر ما خلق وذرأ وبرأ . رواه مالك (مشكاة 2479)
