Upon Going Out of the Home (55)
Ummu Salamata said: The Messenger of Allah never ever left my house without raising his gaze to the sky and saying: 'Allahumma innee 'a`outhu bika 'an 'adhilla 'aw 'udhalla, 'aw 'azilla 'aw 'uzalla, 'aw 'athlima 'au 'uthlama, 'aw 'ajhala 'aw yujhala `alayya(78)

(78) O' my 'ilãh I solicit protection in You lest I go astray or that I be led astray, that I drift or that I be caused to drift, that I commit injustice or that I be subject to injustice, that I act in ignorance or that I be acted upon in ignorance.


Reported by At-Tirmithi, Abu dawood, An-Nisã'ee, and Ibn Mãjah. At-Tirmithi said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni said it was as At-Tirmithi said, and included it in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #45.
