Question

As-salamualaikum Is the following dua authentic: Allahumma innee a’udhu bika min Jaaris Suu, wa min zawjin tusheebuni qablal masheeb, wa min waladin yakoonu alaiyya rabban, wa min maalin yakoonu alaiyya ‘adhaaban, wa min khaleelin maakirin, ‘ainuhu taraanee, wa qalbuhu yar’aanee, in yaraa hasanatan dafanahaa, wa in yaraa sayyi’a’tan adhaa’ahaa“ At Tabaraani in ‘Ad Dua’ (3/1425/1339)

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

The English translation of this Hadeeth is: "O Allaah! I seek refuge in you from an evil neighbour; and from a wife that causes me to grow old before old age; and from a son who will become a master over me; and from wealth that becomes a punishment for me; and from a cunning friend whose gaze is upon me and whose heart is plotting and planning against me, such that if he sees something good, he buries it, and if he sees something bad he spreads it."

Shaykh Al-Albaani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him classified this Hadeeth as Saheeh (sound) in Silsilatul-Ahaadeeth As-Saheehah under number 3137.

Allaah Knows best.
