Dua against evil manners, actions, desires, diseases

عن قطبة بْنِ مَالِك رضي الله عنه قال كان رسول الله صل الله عليه و سلم يَقُوْل

اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنِي مُنْكَرَاتِ الأَخْلاَقِ وَ الأَعْمَالِ وَالأَهْوَاءِ و الأدْوَاءِ

أَخْرَجَهُ الترمذي و صححه الحاكم و اللفظ له

From Qutbah ibn Maalik may Allah be pleased with him he said the messenger of Allah () may Allah send peace and blessings upon him used to say “O Allah protect me from evil manners, evil actions, evil desires and evil diseases”

Extracted by Tirmidhi and Al Hakim authenticated it and this is the wording (of Al Hakim) for it

Tirmidhi (3591), AL Hakim (532/1), Shaykh Albani authenticated it (Saheeh Tirmidhi: 3591)


Shaykh Abdullah bin abdurrahman al bassam:

Evil Manners: it is despised characteristics, like stinginess, arrogance, envy, hatred and things towards that. Evil Desires: it is what the soul desires and inclines towards. As for Evil Actions: then it is major sins, and persistent on minor sins. As for Diseases: then it is illnesses, and it could be for the body like sicknesses horrible sicknesses from leprosy, cancer and pleurisy, and it could be illnesses of the hearts  with desires like sins and with doubts such as innovations.
