Opening Supplications in Salat (74)
It is reported by way of Jubair bin Mut'im that he saw the Messenger of Allah praying a prayer, he said: 'Allãhu 'akbaru kabeeran, wal-hamdu lil-lãhi katheeran, wa subhãna 'allãhi bukratan-wa 'aseelan (thrice)
'A `outhu bil-lãhi min 'ash-shaytãnir-rajeemi, min naphkhihi, wa nafthihi, wa hamzihi

(89) Allah is greater very great, all praise be to Allah many times, subhdna 'allãh early in the morning and of an evening ['Asr to Maghrib time]. I seek protection in Allah from the despicable Shaytãn, from his instigation of pride, his erotic verses [poetry], and from his diabolical possession [madness].


Reported by Abu Dawood, and Al-Albani said it was sound, and that it had many testimonials (supporting ahadeeth) whose reporters he traced in his Al-Manãr (#335). This hadeeth is #62 in The Authentic of Good Sayings
