Maliks Muwatta Book 51, Hadith Number 12.

Section : Taking Refuge.

Yahya related to me from Malik from Summayy, the mawla of Abu Bakr from al-Qa’qa ibn Hakim that Kab al-Ahbar said, “Had it not been for some words which I said, the jews would have made me into a donkey.” Someone asked him what they were. He said, “I seek refuge with the immense Face of Allah – there is nothing greater than it – and with the complete words of Allah which neither the good person nor the corrupt can exceed and with all the most beautiful names of Allah, what I know of them and what I do not know, from the evil of what He has created and originated and multiplied.”

Audhu bi wajhi’llahi l-adheem aladhee laysa shay’un adham minh, wa bi kalimati’llahi’t-tammati, alatee la yujawizu hunna barra wa la fajir, wa bi asma’illahi’l-husna kulliha ma alamtu minha wa ma lam alam, min sharri ma khalaqa wa bara’a wa dhara’a.
