Upon Entering the Masjid and Leaving it (70)
The Prophet was such that if he entered the Masjid he would say: A`outhu bil-lãhi `atheemi, wa bi-wajhihil-kareemi, wa bi-sultãnihil-qadeemi min 'ash-shaytãnir rajeemi(85).
He said: "For when he would say that, the shaytãn would say: He has been protected from me for the remainder of his day".

(85) I seek protection or refuge in Allah The Magnificent, in his Noble Face, and in his ancient dominion, from the despicable shaytãn".


Reported by Abu Dawood. Al-Albãni said that its ascription was sound, that it was in his Saheeh 'Abi Dãwood as #485, and that An-Nawawi, and Ibn Hajar thought it to be comely. It is #50 in The Authentic of Good Sayings.
