Duas for Bedtime & Waking Up
God takes the souls at the time of their death, and those that do not die during their sleep; then He withholds those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends the others back till an appointed term; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect. Sura az-Zumar, 39:42
We can convert the hours we sleep, into time spent in HIS 'Obedience & Worship', by being attentive to these matters.....
1: It is highly emphasized to do Ablutions /wudhoo before going to sleep.A person sleeping in the state of having performed Wudhoo gets the reward of having done worship for the whole night.
2: The Prophet (saws) informed his daughter Fatima (sa) that before going to bed she should do 4 things(i-iv)
i)Recite Sura Ikhlass 3 times.This is like Reciting full Quran
ii)Recite Salwaat 10 times This will get intercession from Prophets
اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
Allahumma Salle Ala Muhammadin Wa Aale Muhammad"
O Allah send blessings on Muhammad & his family
iii)Seek Forgiveness for all believers This is equal to making all believers happy
اَللَّهُمَّ مغفرلى مؤمنين و مؤمنات
Allahuma maghfir le momineen wal moninaat "
O Allah Please forgive all the believing men & women
iv) Recite this which is equal to doing Haj & Umra
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلهِ وَ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ وَ اللهُ اَكْبَر
"Subhaanallaahi wa’l hamdu lillaahi wa laa ilaaha illallaahu wallaahu Akbar ".
Glory be to God, and praise be to God; there is no god but Allah, and Allah is Greater
3: Imam Ali(as) recommends Recite 4 times Sura Al Hamd ' for sawab of giving 4000 dirhams sadqa & recite Astaghfirullah' 10 times to sawab of resolving disputes between momins
Recite the Tasbeeh e Fatima (sa)before going to bed.
Recite this 3 times equals to reciting 1000 rakat.Imam Ali(as) reports from the Prophet(saws)
يفْعَلُ اللهُ مَا يَشَاءُ بِقُدْرَتِهِ وَيَحْكُمُ مَا يُرِيدُ بِعِزَّتِهِ
"Yafalollaho Mashao be qudrati wa yahkomo ma yurido be izzate"
He does what HE wills and rule what HE wills by HIS power
Prophets (saws) dua
بِاسْمِكَ اَللّهُمَّ أَحْيا وبِاسْمِكَ أَمُوتُ
Bismeka Allhumma Ahyaa wa bismeka amooto
With Your name do I live and with Your name I die
4: Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said: Whoever repeats the following three times before going to bed, will be released of his sins as a New Born:
