Seeking protection from Dajjal and debt

Question

Could you reference the narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to invoke Allah in Salah, “O Allah, I seek refuge in you from the punishment of the grave, and from the trial of Dajjal, and from the trial of life and death. O Allah, I seek refuge in you from sin and debt.” One person said: [O Messenger of Allah!] Very often you seek refuge in Allah from being in debt? He replied: “When a person is in debt, he tells lies when he speaks, and breaks his promises when he promises.”

 

Answer

Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 832 and 2397, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 589)

 

Arabic text

اللهم إني أعوذ بك من عذاب القبر، وأعوذ بك من فتنة المسيح الدجال، وأعوذ بك من فتنة المحيا، وفتنة الممات، اللهم إني أعوذ بك من المأثم والمغرم

Allahumma inni a’udhu bika min ‘adhabil qabri, wa a’udhu bika min fitnatil masihid Dajjal, wa a’udhu bika min fitnatil mahya wa fitnatil mamati. Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minal ma-thami wal maghrami
