Another Important Supplication

يا حَـيُّ يا قَيّـومُ بِـرَحْمَـتِكِ أَسْتَـغـيث ، أَصْلِـحْ لي شَـأْنـي كُلَّـه ، وَلا تَكِلـني إِلى نَفْـسي طَـرْفَةَ عَـين

”O The Ever-Living! O The One Who sustains and protects all that exists! By Your mercy I seek aid and deliverance, rectify all my affairs for me and do not leave me to myself, even for the blink of an eye.” [ صحيح الترغيب والترهيب 1/273]-[Number 654]

Shaikh Muhammad Bin Ibraaheem Aala Shaikh (rahimahullaah) said: It is neither obligated nor permissible to depend on oneself, as reported in the hadeeth (i.e. the supplication a believer makes): [فَلاَ تَكِلْنِى إِلَى نَفْسِى طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ ] ”Do not leave me to myself even for the blink of an eye.” [Majmoo al-Fataawaa of Shaikh Muhammad Bin Ibraaheem 1/70]
