Dua for protection from Fire
Dua that Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam taught Abu Darda r.a. for absolute security of the house (including fire, theft, etc):
To be read after Fajr and after Maghrib:
Allahoumma anta rabbi laa ilaaha illaa anta, ‘alaika tawakkaltou wa anta rabboul’arshil kareem, maa shaa Allahou kaan wa maa lam yasha’ lam yakoun, wa laa Hawla wa laa qouwwata illaa billaahil ‘aliyyil ‘azweem, a’alamou annal laaha ‘alaa koulli shai in qadeer, wa annal laaha qad aHaatwa bi koulli shai in ‘ilman. Allahoumma inni a’ouzou bika min sharri nafsi wa min sharri koulli daab batin anta aakhizoun binaaswiyatihaa, inna rabbi ‘alaa swiraatim moustaqeem. (Baihaqui)
O Allah ! You are my Rabb, there is no deity besides You. I put my trust in You and You are the Rabb of the noble Throne. Whatever Allah wishes, happens. And whatever He does not wish, will not happen. And there is no power or defense except Allah`s, the most High, the Greatest of all. I know that definitely Allah has power over everything and that Allah has encompassed everything in knowledge. O Allah, I ask You protection against the evils of my nafs, and against the evils of all living things, that You only have complete power over them. Definitely my Rabb is on the right path.
(Baihaqi ;Hayatus Sahabah)
