What is the reference for this du’a?

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ سَمْعِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ بَصَرِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ لِسَانِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ قَلْبِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَنِيِّي



Imam Tirmidhi, Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahumallah) and others have recorded this du’a which Nabi  (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) taught to a Sahabi.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3492 and Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1546)



Allahumma inni a’udhu bika min sharri sam’i wa min sharri basari wa min sharri lisani wa min sharri qalbi wa min sharri maniyyi



O Allah!  I seek refuge in You from the evil of my hearing, the evil of my sight, the evil of my tongue, the evil of my heart, and the evil of my [private part].


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
