Supplications of the Prophet
At Sleeping Time (26)
It is reported by way of Abi Hurayrata ,
that someone used to come upon him and take from the
charity - which the Prophet
had made him guardian over - night after night, so on
the third night, he said: I will report you to the Messenger
of Allah ,
the man said: Let me teach you some phrases with which
Allah will cause you benefit - they were very eager
for good - so he said: When you go to bed, read 'Aayaht
for there is still upon you from Allah a guardian, and
no shaytan can get close to you until you enter upon
morning. Then he said: "He told you the truth and he
is a liar, ([that was a shaytan])".
