Du’aa Before Sleeping – 7

sweet dreamsOne should recite the following duaa before going to sleep:

اللهُمَّ خَلَقْتَ نَفْسِي وَأَنْتَ تَوَفَّاهَا، لَكَ مَمَاتُهَا وَمَحْيَاهَا، إِنْ أَحْيَيْتَهَا فَاحْفَظْهَا، وَإِنْ أَمَتَّهَا فَاغْفِرْ لَهَا، اللهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ

O Allah, You are the One who has created my soul and You are the One who will give it death. Its death and its life is solely in Your control. If You allow it to live, then I ask You to protect it, and if You grant it death, then I beg of You to forgive it. O Allah, I beg of You to grant me Aafiyah.

عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنه أنه أمر رجلا إذا أخذ مضجعه قال اللهم خلقت نفسي وأنت توفاها لك مماتها ومحياها إن أحييتها فاحفظها وإن أمتها فاغفر لها اللهم إني أسألك العافية فقال له رجل أسمعت هذا من عمر فقال من خير من عمر من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم (مسلم رقم 2712)

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) once instructed a person to recite the following duaa upon retiring to bed. The person asked (after hearing the duaa), “Did you hear this from Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhu)?” He replied: “Rather from someone greater than Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhu), I heard it directly from Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).”
