Worst Behavior

Anas Ibn Mālik (RA) narrates, “The Prophet (S) used to say

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ الْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَالْجُبْنِ وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْهَرَمِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الْمَحْيَا وَالْمَمَاتِ

Allāhumma ʼinnī ʼaʻūḏu bi-ka min al-ʼajzi wal-kasali wal-jubni wal-buḵli wal-harami, wa ʼaʻūḏu bi-ka min ʻaḏābil-qabri, wa ʼaʻūḏu bi-ka min fitnatil maḥyā wal mamāti

O Allah, indeed I seek refuge with You from weakness/powerlessness, laziness, cowardice, greed and extreme old age. I seek refuge in You from the punishment of the grave. I seek refuge in You from the trials of life and death.

Recorded in Ṣaḥiḥ Al-Buḵhāri and Muslim.
