Protection With You From You

ʻĀishah (RA) narrates, “One night I woke up and didn’t find the Prophet (S) in bed. So I prodded and searched for him until my hand fell upon his upright feet while he (SAWS) was in sajdah in the masjid (literally the next room). He was saying

اللَّهُمَّ أَعُوذُ بِرِضَاكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَبِمُعَافَاتِكَ مِنْ عُقُوبَتِكَ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْكَ لَا أُحْصِي ثَنَاءً عَلَيْكَ أَنْتَ كَمَا أَثْنَيْتَ عَلَى نَفْسِكَ

Allāhumma ʼaʻūḏu bi-riḍāka min saḵatika, wa bi-muʻāfātika min ʻuqūbatika, wa ʼaʻūḏu bi-ka min-ka, lā ʼuḥṣī ṯanāʼan ʻalay-ka, anta kamā ʼaṯnayta ʻalā nafsika

O Allah, I seek refuge in Your pleasure from Your anger/displeasure and in Your reprieve from Your punishment. I seek refuge with You from You. I cannot count praise for You, You are just as You have praised Yourself.

Recorded in Ṣaḥiḥ Muslim.
