Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Recite this dua frequently.
It is in Arabic:
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم وبه نستعين،
اللّهم انه ليس في السماوات دورات ولا في الارض غمرات
ولا في الشجر ورقات ولا في الاجسام حركات
ولا في العيون لحظات ولا في النفوس خطرات
ولا في البحار قطرات الا وهي بك عارفات
ولك مشاهدات وعليك دالات وبك والهات وفي ملكك متحيرات،
فبالقدرة التي سخرت بها اهل السماوت والارض
سخر لي قلوب المخلوقات وقلب فلان ابن فلانة (وتذكرين اسم زوجك)، و اجعله يغض بصره عن النساء،
… إنك على كل شيء قدير وبالاجابة جدير
وصلى الله على محمد وآله اجمعين.
