Praying against oneself?

Muslim (3014) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not pray against yourselves, do not pray against your children, do not pray against your wealth, lest that coincide with a time when Allaah is asked and He answers your prayer.”

And Muslim (920) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not pray against yourselves, except for good things, for the angels say Ameen to whatever you say.”

And Muslim (6288) narrated from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) visited a Muslim man who had grown weak like a chicken. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to him: “Did you pray for anything or ask Him for anything?” He said: Yes, I used to say: O Allaah, whatever punishment You are going to give me in the Hereafter, give it to me in this world. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Subhaan Allaah! You cannot bear it. Why didn’t you say: O Allaah, give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and protect us from the torment of the Fire?” Then he prayed to Allaah for him, and He healed him.
