Kindly provide the reference for the Hadith which states that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would make the following du’a after Salah ‘O Allah, I seek Your protection from disbelief, poverty and the punishment of the grave’

اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الكفر ، والفقر ، وعذاب القبر

Allahumma inni a’udhubika minal kufri wal faqri wa ‘adhabil qabr



Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Bakrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 1347. Also see Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 1028. See another version of the du’a here)


The narrator says he would recite the above du’a after salah because he heard his father doing so. His father once asked him as to where he had learnt this from. The son replied ‘I heard you reciting it’. The father said, ‘Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would utter these words after Salah.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
