Dua – supplication of Prophet Dawood (pbuh)

Abu Ad-Darda’ narrated that :

the Messenger of Allah (saws ) said: “It used to be from the supplication of (Prophet) Dawud (pbuh) that he would say:
 ‘O Allah, indeed, I ask You for Your love and the love of those who love You, and for the action that will cause me to attain Your love, O Allah, make Your love more beloved to me than myself, my family and cold water
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ وَحُبَّ مَنْ يُحِبُّكَ وَالْعَمَلَ الَّذِي يُبَلِّغُنِي حُبَّكَ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ حُبَّكَ أَحَبَّ إِلَىَّ مِنْ نَفْسِي وَأَهْلِي وَمِنَ الْمَاءِ الْبَارِدِ ‏”‏ ‏
(Allāhumma innī as’aluka ḥubbaka wa ḥubba man yuḥibbuka wal-`amalalladhī yuballighunī ḥubbak. Allāhummaj`al ḥubbaka aḥabba ilaiyya min nafsī, wa ahlī wa minal-mā’il-bārid)
He said: “And when the Prophet (saws ) would mention Dawud, he would narrate about him, saying: “He (Prophet Dawood as) was the best in worship out of all men.”
