SHORTEST & MOST POWERFUL "DUA" & ONLY 'ONE WORD' (?) "Allahuma inni as'aluka al Afiyah" * اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ Al-Abbas, radiallahuanhu, Uncle of Prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him ﷺ, asked him ﷺ, "O, Messenger of Allah, teach me a prayer.”
Prophet Muhammed ﷺ answered, saying: “O, Uncle, say:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَة
"Allahumma, inni as' aluka al 'Afiyah" Meaning: "Ya Allah, I ask you for Al Afiyah"
["Afiyah": wellness, healthy, good condition, without difficulties, no pain, no suffering in this world and the Next]
Uncle Abbas, radiallahu anhu, came back after some days, asking; “Ya Rasulullah ﷺ, this Dua is short. I want a bigger dua.”
Prophet, ﷺ replied to his uncle, "Dear uncle, ask Allah for Afiyah, I swear you cannot be given anything better than Afiyah.”
This is a very short and simple dua. Just sincerely mean it, when you pray it.
“Ya Allah, I ask You for Al Afiyah (to protect me and us from distress, sicknesses, poverty and hardships). There is much more included with:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ
"Allahumma, inni as aluka al'afiyah" (Sunan Tirmidhi and Riyadh As Saliheen) Rasoolulah, ﷺ said: “Convey from me, even if it is one verse.”
May Allah accept! If you SHARE others benefit and you get Rewards from Allah.
