At Sleeping Time (31)
Upon retiring to his bed(52) the Prophet would say: Al-hamdu lil-lãhi 'allathee 'at`amanã wa saqãnã, wa kafãnã, wa ãwãnã, fakam miman lã kãfiya lahu wa lã mu'wee(53)

(52) Although the word bed is used it is not meant to convey the meaning of a mattress. The Prophet used to sleep on a simple mat, not a mattress.

(53) All praise be to Allah Who has fed us, offered us drink, sufficed us, and sheltered us, for how many are there that have no one to suffice them, nor to shelter them. [38]


Reported by Muslim, and Al-Albãni included it in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #31.
