Listen & Learn this Dua:

Narrated Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه  : The Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم said,

“When anyone of you go to bed, he should shake out his bed with the inside of his waist sheet, for he does not know what has come on to it after him, and then he should say:

بِاسْمِكَ رَبِّي وَضَعْتُ جَنْبِي، وَبِكَ أَرْفَعُهُ، َإِنْ أَمْسَكْتَ نَفْسِي
فَارْحَمْهَا، وَإِنْ أَرْسَلْتَهَا فَاحْفَظْهَا، بِمَا تَحْفَظُ بِهِ عِبَادَكَ الصَّالِحِينَ

Bismika Rabbî wada’tu janbîwa bika arfa’uhu, in amsakta nafî farhamhawa in arsaltaha fahfazha bima tahfazu bihi ibâdakas-sâlihîn.”

O my Lord! In Your Name I put my side over this bed and with Your Name I will lift it up therefrom. If You take my soul, bestow mercy on it, and if You release it, protect it as You protect Your righteous slaves.
