Al-‘Abbās, the uncle of the Prophet , came to the Prophet (peace be pon him) and said:
“Ya Rasūlullāh, teach me a du'ā’.”
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“O my uncle, say:
Allāhumma inni asaluka al-'āfiyah
(O Allāh, I ask you for 'āfiyah).”
What is 'āfiyah?
'Āfiyah means “to save me from any afflictions.
To be healthy, you are in 'āfiyah.
To have enough money
To live, you are in 'āfiyah.
To have your children protected,
you are in 'āfiyah.
And if you are forgiven and not punished, you are in 'āfiyah".
“O Allāh, protect me from any pain and suffering.”
This includes dunya and ākhirah.
Al-'Abbās thought about this for a while, and then he came back after a few days and said (paraphrased):
“Ya Rasūlullāh, this du'ā’ seems a little short. I want something big.”
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “My dear uncle, ask Allāh for 'āfiyah for wallāhi, you cannot be given anything better than 'āfiyah.”
It is a simple du'ā’.
Sincerely mean what you say.
“O Allāh, I ask You to be saved from any distress, grief, hardship, harm. Don’t test me.”
All of this is included in
“Allāhumma inni asaluka al-'āfiyah”

As part of an ongoing effort to explore the visual effects of iridescence, artist Fabian Oefner(previously) created a new photographic series titled Oil Spill.
To create the images he used a syringe to drip small drops of oil into a
black reservoir containing water. As the oil expanded into plumes he
captured the images you see here reminiscent of giant fires, irises, or
exploding stars. You can see more from the series on Behance.
