عن ابن مسعود -رضي الله عنه- أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- كان يقول: «اللهم إني أَسْأَلُكَ الهُدى، وَالتُّقَى، والعفاف، والغنى».
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]
المزيــد ...

Ibn Mas‘ūd (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) used to say: "O Allah, I ask You for guidance, piety, abstinence, and sufficiency."

Explanation

This is one of the most comprehensive and useful invocations. It includes asking for religious and worldly benefits. 'Guidance' means beneficial knowledge; 'piety' means righteous deeds and avoiding divine and prophetic prohibitions; 'abstinence' means not harming people, and avoiding immoralities; 'sufficiency' means being satisfied with Allah and with divine provisions, and developing content in the heart.
