Seeking Refuge from 4 Things After Tashahhud Lesson

“The Prophet (sal-Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to say:
‘When one of you has finished the [last] Tashahhud, he should seek refuge with Allah from four things; [saying]:
1. Allah! I truly seek refuge with You from the punishment of Hellfire,
2. and from the punishment of the grave,
3. and from the trials of living and dying,
4. and from the evil [trials] of the False Christ.
[Then he should supplicate for himself with what occurs to him.]
"He (sal-Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would supplicate with it in his own Tashahhud." 1

(Prophet's Prayer Described)

Seeking Refuge from 4 Things Lesson - 27 page lesson

The majority of scholars held the view that this Du`a’ (supplication) falls under the category of stressed Sunnah. It was been reported on the authority of Tawus, one of the great Tabi`un (Followers, the generation after the Companions of the Prophet) that this Du`a’ is obligatory. Tawus is also reported to have ordered his son to repeat his Salah when he knew that he did not recite this Du`a’. This indicates that such Du`a’ is a stressed Sunnah, which the Mu’min should not miss in obligatory or voluntary Salah.
