Supplications of the Prophet
At Sleeping Time (25)
Upon going to his bed each night, the Messenger of Allah
would bring his palms together. Then he would spittle(45)
in them, then he would recite into them Qul huwal
'allãhu 'ahad, Qul 'a`outhu birabbil falaqi,
and Qul 'a`outhu birabbin-nãsi(46)
he would wipe with them whatever he is able to of his
body, he would begin with his head and face, and the
foreside of his body. He would do this three times".
Spittle is being used for the Arabic word nafth. Nafth
is to put the tip of your tongue between your lips
and to blow lightly as you pull your tongue back which
in this case causes a misty spray onto your hands.
Meaning the last three suwar of the Qur'an.
