Hadith on Witr: Supplication for performing witr prayer

Hasan ibn Ali reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, taught me some words to say in the witr prayer, “O Allah, guide me among those you have guided, secure me among those you have secured, protect me among those you have protected, bless me in what you have given me, and save me from the evil you have decreed. Verily, you alone decree and none can issue decree over you. Verily, he cannot be humiliated whoever is protected by you. Blessed are you, our Lord, the Almighty.”

عن الحسن بن علي رضي الله عنهما عَلَّمَنِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَلِمَاتٍ أَقُولُهُنَّ فِي الْوِتْرِ اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِنِي فِيمَنْ هَدَيْتَ وَعَافِنِي فِيمَنْ عَافَيْتَ وَتَوَلَّنِي فِيمَنْ تَوَلَّيْتَ وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا أَعْطَيْتَ وَقِنِي شَرَّ مَا قَضَيْتَ فَإِنَّكَ تَقْضِي وَلَا يُقْضَى عَلَيْكَ وَإِنَّهُ لَا يَذِلُّ مَنْ وَالَيْتَ تَبَارَكْتَ رَبَّنَا وَتَعَالَيْتَ
