    ALLAHUMMA INNI AS' ALUKA AL'AFIYAH
    The SHORTEST BUT POWERFUL PRAYER*
    Do you know it ???..
    Al-Abbas (R.A.), the uncle of the Prophet ( ﷺ ), came to the Prophet ( ﷺ ) and said:
    “Ya Rasulullah, teach me a du'a.”
    The Prophet ( ﷺ) said:
    “O my uncle, say:
    ALLAHUMMA INNI AS' ALUKA AL'AFIYAH
    (O Allah, I ask you for afiyah).
    Now what is Afiyah?
    Afiyah means -
    ● To be saved from any afflictions, you are in afiyah.
    ● To be healthy, you are in afiyah.
    ● To have enough money, you are in afiyah.
    ● To live, you are in afiyah.
    ● To have your children protected, you are in afiyah.
    ●And if you are forgiven and not punished, you are in afiyah.
    So basically, Afiyah means:
    “O Allah, protect me from any pain and sufferings.”
    This includes both dun'ya and akhirah.
    Al-Abbas (R.A.) thought about this for a while, and then he came back after a few days and said (paraphrased):
    “Ya Rasulullah, this du'a seems a little short. I want something big.”
    The Prophet ( ﷺ ) said:
    “My dear uncle, ask Allah for Afiyah for Wallahi, you cannot be given anything better than afiyah.”
    It is a simple du'a.
    Sincerely mean what you say while praying.
    “O Allah, I ask You to be saved from any:
    distress,
    grief,
    hardship,
    harm, and
    don't test me, etc.”
    All of this is included in
    “Allahumma inni as'aluka al'afiyah”
    (Riyadh As Saliheen, Sunan At-Tirmidhi).
    Make sure to share this to others and tell your friends:
    Prophet Muhammed ( ﷺ ) said :
    “Convey from me, even if it is one verse.”
    May ALLAH accept all our prayers. Amin
