Hadith on Dua: Seek refuge from vices, trials, and oppression

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, would say, “O Allah, I seek refuge in you from disability, sloth, cowardice, senility, and miserliness. I seek refuge in you from the torment of the grave and from the trials of life and death.

In another narration, the Prophet said, “And from the burden of debt and the repression of men.”
