One of the most heartfelt and fervent prayers of a parent is to make dua for seeking Allah’s protection for their children.
Such supplications reflect the love and care parents have for their offspring, as they turn to Allah, the Most Merciful and All-Powerful to shield their children from harm, guide them towards righteousness, and bestow upon them His blessings.
This dua for seeking Allah’s protection for children was narrated in an authentic hadith in which the Prophet Muhammed used to make this dua for his two grandsons al-Hasan and al-husain.
Ibn ‘abbas said :
The Prophet (ﷺ) used to seek refuge in Allah for al-Hasan and al-husain, saying; I seek refuge for both of you in the perfect words of Allah from every devil and every poisonous thing and from the evil eye which influences. He would then say; your father sought refuge in Allah by them for Ismail and Ishaq.
Abu Dawud said; this is a proof of the fact that the Quran is not created.Sunan Abi Dawud 4737
