With the Name of Allah,
the Most Gracious, the
Most Merciful . Say : He
is Allah (the) One . The
Self-Sufficient Master,
Whom all creatures
need, He begets not nor

With the Name of Allah,
the Most Gracious, the
Most Merciful. Say: I
seek refuge with
(Allah) the Lord of the
daybreak, from the evil
of what He has
created, and from the
evil of the darkening
(night) as it comes with
its darkness, and from
the evil of those who
practice witchcraft
when they blow in the
knots, and from the evil
of the envier when he
envies.

(Allah) the Lord of
mankind, the King of
mankind , the God of
mankind , from the evil
of the whisperer who
withdraws , who
whispers in the breasts
of mankind, of jinns and
men .

Allah! There is no God
but He, the Ever Living,
the One Who sustains
and protects all that
exists. Neither slumber
nor sleep overtakes
Him. To Him belongs
whatever is in the
heavens and whatever
is on the earth. Who is
he that can intercede
with Him except with
His Permission? He
knows what happens
to them in this world,
and what will happen to
them in the Hereafter.
And they will never
encompass anything of
His Knowledge except
that which He wills. His
Throne extends over
the heavens and the
earth, and He feels no
fatigue in guarding and
preserving them. And
He is the Most High, the
Most Great.
Reference: Al-Baqarah 2:255.
Whoever reads this when he
lies down to sleep will have
a guardian from Allah remain
with him and Satan will not be
able to come near him until
he rises in the morning. See
Al-Bukhari, cf. Al-Asqalani,
Fathul-Bari 4/487.

The Messenger believes
in what has been send
down to him from his
Lord, and so do the
believers. Each one
believes in Allah, His
Angels, His Books, and
His Messengers. They
say: "We make no
distinction between any
of His Messengers," and
they say: "We hear, and
we obey. (We seek)
Your Forgiveness, our
Lord, and to You is the
return." Allah burdens
not a person beyond
what he can bear. He
gets reward for that
(good) which he has
earned, and he is
punished for that (evil)
which he has earned.
Our Lord! Punish us not
if we forget or fall into
error. Our Lord! Lay not
on us a burden like that
which You did lay on
those before us. Our
Lord! Put not on us a
burden greater than we
have strength to bear.
Pardon us and grant us
forgiveness. Have
mercy on us. You are
our Protector, and help
us against the
disbelieving people.
Reference: Al-Baqarah
2:285-6. These two Verses
will be sufficient for anyone
who recites them at night
before sleeping. Al-Bukhari,
cf. Al-Asqalani, Fathul-
Bari.9/94, Muslim 1/554.

With Your Name1 my
Lord, I lay myself down
; and with Your Name I
rise . And if my soul You
take , have mercy on it
, and if You send it back
then protect it as You
protect Your righteous
slaves.2
Reference:
1 "If any of you rises from
his bed and later returns to
it, let him dust off his bed
with his waist garment three
times and mention the Name
of Allah, for he does not
know what may have
entered the bed after him,
and when he lies down he
should say. . . ".

Muslim 4/2084.

O Allah, You have
created my soul and
You take it back. Unto
You is its death and its
life . If You give it life
then protect it , and if
You cause it to die then
forgive it. O Allah, I ask
You for strength.

and Ahmad 2/79.

104. Allaahumma qinee

O Allah,1 save me from
Your punishment on the
Day that You resurrect
Your slaves. (Recite
three times in Arabic .)2
Reference:
1 "When the Prophet (SAW)
wanted to lie down to sleep,
he used to place his right
hand under his cheek and
say…"
2 Abu Dawud 4/311. See also
Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmithi
3/143.
"ﺑِﺎﺳْﻤِﻚَ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻬُﻢَّ ﺃَﻣُﻮﺕُ
ﻭَﺃَﺣْﻴَﺎ."
105. Bismika
Allaahumma 'amootu
wa 'ahyaa.
In Your Name , O Allah ,
I die and I live.
Reference: Here, dying and
living are metaphors for
sleep and wakefulness. This
explains why the normal
order of these words has
been reversed in this Hadith.
In other contexts the living
is mentioned before dying.
See Qur'an Al-Baqarah
2:258, Aal-'Imrdn 3:156, Al-
A'raf 7:158 among many
other examples, (trans.). See
also Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari
11/113, Muslim 4/ 2083.
"ﺳُﺒْﺤَﺎﻥَ ﺍﻟﻠﻪِ، ﻭﺍﻟْﺤَﻤْﺪُ ﻟﻠﻪِ،
ﻭَﺍﻟﻠﻪُ ﺃَﻛْﺒَﺮُ."
106: Subhaanallaahi, –
Walhamdu lillaahi, –
Wallaahu 'Akbar.
Glory is to Allah (thirty-
three times in Arabic) ,
praise is to Allah
(thirty-three times) ,
Allah is the Most Great
(thirty-four times)
