1. Humayd ibn Ziyad has narrated from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad from more than one person from Aban from ibn al-Mundhir who has said the following: “Once I mentioned fear before abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) and he said, ‘I should tell you something that after saying it you will not be frightened during the day or night, say, “In the name of Allah, with (the help of) Allah, I place my trust before Allah; whoever places his trust before Allah, He is suffices him and Allah completes his affairs. Allah has assigned a measure for everything. O Lord, place me under Your protection, in Your neighborhood, include me in Your amnesty and under Your protection.’ I (the narrator) heard the case of a man who had practiced this for thirty years. He did not say it one night and a scorpion bit him.’”

3. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from certain individuals of his people from al-Qaddah from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Amir al-Mu’minin, Ali ibn abu Talib (a.s.) has said, ‘The Holy Prophet read the following for the protection of al-Hassan and al-Husayn, recipients of divine supreme covenant, ‘I seek protection for both of you with the perfect words of Allah, with all of His beautiful, universal names against the evil of the poisonous ones, that which causes worry, all the evil eyes, and the envious ones when they exercise their envy. ’ The Holy Prophet then turned to us saying, ‘This is how Ibrahim sought protection for Isma’il and Ishaq.’”

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Bukayr from Sulayman al-Ja’fari who has said the following: “I heard abu al-Hassan saying, ‘In the evening when you see the sun about to go down and disappear then say, “In the name of Allah, with (the help of) Allah, all praise belongs to Allah, Who has not taken any companion, or children. Who has no partner in His kingdom or a supporter against weakness, and He is greater than can be described, all praise belongs to Allah Who describes (things) and Himself cannot be described. Who knows all things but Himself cannot be known. He knows the stealth glance of the eyes and whatever the chests hide. I seek protection with His honorable face, and with His great names against the evil of whatever He has spread and has populated, the evil of the things beneath the earth, the evil of what is apparent and that which is hidden, the evil of what I mentioned or did not mention, all praise belongs to Allah Lord of the worlds.” “The Imam mentioned that this is protection against all the beasts, and all devils condemned to stoning and all the biting and stinging animals. One who reads this supplication should have no fear from thieves or the devils.’ “I (the narrator) then said to him, T hunt beasts and at night I sleep in ruined places and I feel afraid.’ He said on entering them say, ‘In the name of Allah, I enter and step your right foot first but when coming out step with your left foot first and mention the name of Allah you will not see any frightening thing.”’

6. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Ishaq ibn ‘ Ammar who has said the following: “Once I said to abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) ‘May Allah keep my soul in service for your cause, I am afraid of scorpions. The Imam said, ‘Look at the little bear (Ursa Minor ) and of the three stars next to the middle one of them there is a small star. Arabs call it al-Suha’. We call it Aslama, look at it gazing every night and say, ‘O Lord of Aslama, confer al-Salat (favors) upon Muhammad and his family, hasten their happiness and grant us safety and protection.’ Ishaq has said that he did not miss it except once at which time a scorpion stung bit him.’”

10. Muhammad ibn Ja’far abu al-‘Abbas has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Salih ibn Sa’id from Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Harun who wrote to abu Ja’iar (a.s.) asking for a supplication for protection of children against bothering gasses: “The Imam wrote in his own hand writing the following supplications for protection and Salih thought that the Imam had sent them to Ibrahim: ‘Allah is greater than can be described, Allah is greater than can be described, Allah is greater than can be described. I testify that no one deserves to be worshipped except Allah. I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Allah is greater than can be described. Allah is greater than can be described. No one deserves to be worshipped except Allah. No one is my Lord, except Allah, to Him belongs the kingdom, all praise belongs to Him and He has no partner. Allah is free of all defects. As Allah willed it was, whatever He did not will did not come into being. O Lord, the Possessor of glory and magnanimity. Lord of Moses, Jesus and Ibrahim who fulfilled his duty, Lord of Ibrahim, Isma’il, Ishaq, Ya’qub and the tribes, no one deserves to be worshipped except You. I glorify You by means of Your signs that You have shown, by means of Your greatness, and by means of the facts with which the prophets pleaded before You for help that You are Lord of the people, that You were before everything and that You will be after everything, I plead before You through Your name with which You hold the skies from falling on earth except by Your permission, through Your perfect words with which You bring the dead to life, grant protection to Your servant so and so against the evil of whatever comes down from the sky and whatever goes up into the sky, whatever comes out of the earth and whatever enters into it, peace be with the messengers, all praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds.’ “He also wrote in his own handwriting, ‘In the name of Allah, with (the help of) Allah, to Allah, and as Allah wills, I seek protection (from Allah) for him with the majesty of Allah, with the might of Allah, with the power of Allah, with the possession of Allah, this writing is cure from Allah for so and so, son of male and female, two servants of Allah, O Allah, bestow al- Salat (favors) upon Muhammad and his family.’”
