96. In al-Faqih: The Noble Prophet XE "Holy Prophet"  9 used to say after the Fajr prayer:

أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحُزَنِ، وَالعَجْزِ وَالْكَسْلِ، وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ، وَضَلْعِ الدِّينِ وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ، وَبَوَارِ الأَيَّمِ وَالْغَفْلَةِ، وَالذِّلَّةِ وَالْقَسْوَةِ، وَالْعَيْلَةِ وَالْمَسْكَنَةِ. وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ نَفْسٍ لاَ تَشْـبَعُ وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لاَ يَخْشَعُ، وَمِنْ عَيْنٍ لاَ تَدْمَعُ، وَمِنْ دُعَاءٍ لاَ يُسْمَعُ، وَمِنْ صَلاَةٍ لاَ تَنْفَعُ (تُرْفَعُ)، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مَنْ إِمْرَأةٍ تُشَيِّبُنِي قَبْلَ أَوَانَ مَشِيبِي، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ وَلَدٍ يَكُونُ عَلَيَّ رَباًّ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ مَالٍ يَكُونُ عَلَيَّ عَذَاباً، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ صَاحِبِ خَدِيعَةٍ، إِنْ رَأى حَسَنَةً دَفَنَهَا، وَإِنْ رَأى سَيِّئَةً أَفْشَاهَا. أَللّٰهُمَّ لاَ تَجْعَلْ لِفَاجِرٍ عَلَيَّ (عِنْدِي) يَدْاً وَلاَ مِنَّةً.

O Allh XE "Allh" ! I seek protection with You from grief and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, turning away from the truth and idle talk of men, wasting time and negligence, vileness and cruelty, destitution and poverty. And I seek protection with You from the self that never gets satisfied, the heart that does not humble itself, the eye that does not shed tears, the supplication that is not heard, the prayer that does not benefit. And I seek protection with You from a woman who makes me old before my time, and I seek protection with You from a son who subjugates me, and I seek protection with You from wealth that is a torment for me, and I seek protection from the deceiver who conceals any good that he sees and propagates any evil that he sees. O Allh! Do not let an insolent one ever do me a favor and do not make him expect anything from me.[i]


[i] al-Faqih 1:335, Bir al-Anwr 86:186
