What are the verses of protection against the false messiah

Q. What are the verses of protection against the false messiah, Al messehah ad dajjal, because I have heard much conflicting advice regarding what verses, and how many ayats. Also did the scholars have any opinions on weather to protect oneself from the dajjal was a fard ayan action, and if so by whom. Are there any other types of ibadah that one can do in order to protect oneself from the fitna of the dajjal.

A. What I have heard on the matter is the Sunna of a du`a of seeking protection after the 2nd tashahhud and before taslim:

allahumma inni a`udhu bika min `adhab al-qabr

O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the punishment of the grave

wa min `adhab al-nar

and from the punishment of the Fire

wa min al-fitani ma taqaddama minha wa ma ta’akhkhar

and from tests and trials past and present

wa min fitnat al-masih al-dajjal

and from the confusion of the anti-Christ

wa min fitnat al-mahya wa al-mamat

and from the trial of life and death

and Allah knows best.

Peace and Blessings upon the Prophet, his Family, and his Companions
