Supplications of the Prophet
Remembrance of Allah at Both Ends
of the Day (18)
Abdullah bin Khubayb said: we went out on a rainy and
very dark night, seeking the Prophet
to pray for us, then we found him, and he said: "Qul
(say)". So I said nothing, then he said: So I said nothing,
then he said: "Qul." I said: O' Messenger of
Allah! What should I say? He said "Qul huwal-lãhu
'ahad" and the Mu`awwathatayn(34)
when you enter upon evening time and when you enter
upon morning time, three times, He [Allah] will
protect you from everything".
Qul huwal-lãhu 'ahad and the Mu`aw-wathatayn
are the last three suwar (plural for surah) of the
Qur'ãn. Refer to a translation of the meaning
of the Qur'ãn for an explanation of these suwar.
Reported by Abu Dawood, An-Nisã'ee, and At-Tirmithi
who said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni agreed
with him, said it was of good ascription and included
it in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #18.
