An Invocation for Wealth and Children

Salih b. Ahmad narrated from ‘Abd Allah b. Jabala from al-‘Ala’ b. Razzin from Muhammad b. Muslim, who said: Abu ‘Abd Allah, peace be upon him, said: ‘Protect your wealth and your family, and guard them with these words to recite over them after the final evening prayer (salat al-'isha'): “I seek refuge for myself, my offspring, my family, and my wealth, by the Perfect Words of Allah, from every demon and reptile, and from every evil eye.” This is the invocation by which Jibra’il, peace be upon him, sought protection for al-Hasan and al-Husayn, blessings of Allah on them.’
