Mosquito Repellant through Duaa!

Now that spring is here I’ve noticed something. Every spring and summer I would find myself being stung by mosquitoes over and over again. But I started saying these two and I’ve noticed that although there may be loads of mosquitoes around–they don’t sting me. It could of course be another duaa or I simply haven’t noticed the insects at all but I think it’s these duaas. Now keep in mind, that Allah wills as He wills which goes for all things. 🙂

I would post the Arabic for these but I am having a hard time finding them since the book I used is no longer in my possession.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “If a person says, every day in the morning and every night in the evening, ‘Bismillaah alladhi laa yadurru ma’a ismihi shay’un fi’l-ardi wa laa fi’l-sama’ wa Huwa al-Samee’ al-‘Aleem (In the name of Allah with Whose name nothing can cause harm on earth or in heaven, and He is the All-Seeing, the All-Knowing)’, three times, nothing will harm him.”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, al-Da’waat, 3388, Al-Albaani said in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi, it is hasan saheeh. No. 2689)

Yahya related to me from Malik from Suhayl ibn Abi Salih from his father from Abu Hurayra that a man of the Aslam tribe said, “I did not sleep last night.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said to him, “For what reason?” He replied, “A scorpion stung me.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Had you said in the evening, ‘I seek refuge with the complete words of Allah from the evil of what He has created,’ it would not have happened.”

“A’udhu bi kalimati’llahi’t-tammati min sharri ma khalaq.”

(Muwatta, 51/4/11)

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, Ameen.
