Bismillah Walhamdulillah As Salaatu Was Salaam O ‘Ala Rasulillah
As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu
Prayer at Night- 17th Rajab 1433 (7th June 2012)
Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Satan puts three
knots at the back of the head of any of you if he is asleep. On every knot
he reads and exhales the following words, ‘The night is long, so stay
asleep.’ When one wakes up and remembers Allah, one knot is undone; and
when one performs ablution, the second knot is undone, and when one prays
the third knot is undone and one gets up energetic with a good heart in the
morning; otherwise one gets up lazy and with a mischievous heart.”
Bukhari Vol. 2 : No. 243
So before going to bed, we should recite Ayat.Ul.Kursi, Surah Fatiha and Bismillah shreef to keep Satan away and have a blessed sleep.As a Muslim we should read Dua before sleeping and also emphasize on our younger to memorize it.Dua is as follows:
Du’a before sleeping:
Alllahuma bismika amuutu wa ahyaa.
Oh Allah! With your name I die and I live.
Similarly after getting up, we should read Kalma and dua to have an energetic morning starting with the name of Allah (S.W.T).Dua is as follows:
Du’a after waking up:
Alhamdulillahillazi ahyaanaa ba’da maa amaata-naa wa ilaihinnushuur.
All praise to Allah, who revived us to life after given us death, and to him we shall have to return.
May Allah (S.W.T) make us so pertinacious about our creed that we able to nullify Satan’s provoke.Ameen!!
