“The Prophet (sal-Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to say:
‘When one of you has finished the [last] Tashahhud, he should seek refuge with Allah from four things; [saying]:
1. Allah! I truly seek refuge with You from the punishment of Hellfire,
2. and from the punishment of the grave,
3. and from the trials of living and dying,
4. and from the evil [trials] of the False Christ.
[Then he should supplicate for himself with what occurs to him.]
"He (sal-Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would supplicate with it in his own Tashahhud." 1
I’ve created a unit to help in the study and memorization of this Istiadhah.
I hope you enjoy it. I used it for my 10 and 12 year olds (and it went over well, ma sha Allah), but I think it is adaptable for younger and older ages. Ayaah from the Quraan and ahadith are given to explain each line of the istiadhah.
