Duas for protection from kufr, shirk, hypocrisy

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Question: Can you provide Arabic du’aas for protection from committing, or forgiveness if we have (unintentionally) committed 1) bid’ah 2) Kufr 3) Shirk 4) becoming a Munaafiq

Answer: There are many du’aas that have been mentioned in the Qur’aan and Hadeeth, here are a few

• For Kufr
اللهم إني أعوذبك من الكفر و الفقر و عذاب القبر (سنن أبو داؤود , سنن نسائي)

‘O Allah I take your refuge from kufr, poverty and punishment in grave’

• For Shirk – pray Surah Kaafiroon before going to sleep
إذا أخذت مضجغك فاقرآ قل يا أيها الكافرون حتى تختمها فإنها براءة من الشرك
This hadith has been narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud, Nasai, Tirmidhi and Musnad Ahmed (with similar wording)

• For Nifaq
اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الشقاق و النفاق و سوء الأخلاق
This hadith can be found in Sunan Abu Dawud and Nasai. It means;

‘O Allah! I take your refuge from quarrelling, hypocrisy and bad manners’

• For Bid’ah
اللهم إني أعوذ بك أن أضل أو أضل او أزل او أزل او أظلم او أظلم او أجهل او أجهل علي
Narrated in Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah. It means;

‘O Allah! I take your refuge from going astray or being led astray, from slipping or someone causing me to slip, from oppressing or being oppressed, from being ignorant or ignorance being shown to me’

However, all these duas can be summarized into one dua, found in Ta’leemul Haq, page 7, which is as follows
أللهم إني أعوذ بك من أن أشرك بك شيئا و أنا أعلم به و أستغفرك لما لا أعلم به تبت عنه و تبرأت من الكفر و الشرك و الكذب والمعاصي كلها أسلمت و آمنت و أقول لا إله إلا ألله محمد رسول الله
