Do'a Before Going to Bed

Narrated by Al-Bara’ bin ‘Azib

Whenever Allah’s Messenger went to bed, he would lie down on his right side and recite:

“Allahumma aslamtu nafsi ilaika, wa wajjahtu wajhi ilaika, wa fawwadtu amri ilaika, wa’alija’tu zahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika, la malja’a wa la manja illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabikalladhi anzalta, wa nabiyyikal-ladhi arsalta” (O Allah! I have submitted my soul to You, I have turned myself to You, entrusted my affairs to You and sought Your refuge for protection out of desire for You and out of fear of You ( expecting Your reward and fearing Your punishment). There is no refuge and no place of safety from You but with You. I believed in the Book You have revealed, and in the Prophet You have sent (i.e., Muhammad). (Al-Bukhari)

Narrated by Abu Hurairah

Allah’s Messenger said:

“Whoever sits in a gathering which indulges in useless talk and before getting up supplicates:

‘Subhanaka Allahumma wa bihamdika, ash-hadu an la ilaha illa Anta, astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaika
( Glory be to You, O Allah; praise be to You. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but You; I ask Your Pardon and turn to You in repentance),’

He will be forgiven for (the sins he may have intentionally or unintentionally committed) in that assembly.” (At-Tirmidzi)
