Abbas bin Abdul Mmuttalib (ra) said that he requested the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) to teach him a supplication whereby he May request Allah for his needs. The Prophet (ﷺ) said,"0 Abbas, ask Allah for aafiyah (security). After some days, he again met the Prophet (ﷺ) and asked," Teach me a supplication to beseech Allah for my want." He said, "O Abbas! O uncle of the messenger of Allah! Ask Allah for aafiyah (security) in this world and the next."

حَدَّثَنَا فَرْوَةُ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا عَبِيدَةُ، عَنْ يَزِيدَ بْنِ أَبِي زِيَادٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ الْحَارِثِ، عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْمُطَّلِبِ، قُلْتُ‏:‏ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، عَلِّمْنِي شَيْئًا أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ بِهِ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ يَا عَبَّاسُ، سَلِ اللَّهَ الْعَافِيَةَ، ثُمَّ مَكَثْتُ ثَلاَثًا، ثُمَّ جِئْتُ فَقُلْتُ‏:‏ عَلِّمْنِي شَيْئًا أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ بِهِ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ يَا عَبَّاسُ، يَا عَمَّ رَسُولِ اللهِ، سَلِ اللَّهَ الْعَافِيَةَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ‏.‏
