Question

Could the respected ‘Ulama kindly indicate to the authenticity of the following du’a along with the meaning.

اللهم احرسني بعينك التي لا تنام، واكنفني بركنك الذي لا يرام، وارحمني بقدرتك على فلا أهلك وأنت رجائي، رب كم من نعمة أنعمت بها عليّ قل لك بها شكري وكم من بلية ابتليتني بها قل لك بها صبري، فيا من قل عند نعمته شكري فلم يحرمني، ويا من قل عند بليته صبري فلم يخذلني، ويا من رآني على الخطايا فلم يفضحني، يا ذا المعروف الذي لا ينقضي أبدا ويا ذا النعم التي لا تحصى أبدا، أسألك أن تصلي على محمد، وعلى آل محمد، وبك أدرأ في نحور الأعداء والجبابرة

اللهم أعني على ديني بالدنيا، و أعني على آخرتي بتقوي، واحفظني فيما غبت عنه، ولا تكلني إلى نفسي فيما حضرته، يا من لا تضره الذنوب، و لا تنقصه المغفرة، هب لي ما لا ينقصك واغفر لي ما لا يضرك، إنك أنت الوهاب، أسألك فرجا قريبا، و صبرا جميلا، ورزقا واسعا، والعاقبة من جميع البلاء، وأسألك تمام العافية، وأسألك دوام العافية، وأسألك شكر العافية، وأسألك الغنى عن الناس، ولا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم، اللهم إنا نجعلك في نحورهم ونعوذ بك من شرورهم

Asma bintu Kharijah al Fazari said to her daughter when she was getting married:

Become for him a place of rest, and he will become for you a pillar of [support]. Become for him a bondmaid, and he will become for you a servant. Do not make excessive demands from him, for he will then loathe you. Do not distance yourself from him, for he will then forget you. Should he draw near to you, then draw close to him. Should he keep his distance, then stay away from him. Be mindful of his nose, his hearing and his eyes such that he smells nothing from you but that which is fragrant, hears nothing but that which is good, and looks at nothing but that which is beautiful.”
