As Salamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah,

Its many days you were n't active sis {Infomagination}. Hope all is well at your side

JazakAllah for the sharing. To my knowledge the hadith you shared of doing 5 things before going to sleep, is UNAUTHENTIC.

Generally, we are taught to recite last Khuls, and ayatul Kursi, last verses of surah Baqarah, tasbeeh Fatima, and the dua before going to sleep. It is also advised to clear our heart if we hold grudge, anger or malice towards everyone.

  Asslamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah Star

  May Allah bless your efforts and be pleased on you, sister.
  I just want the source of this Hadith.Embarrassed

      I do need it because believe me sister I do not mean you on  this but they LIE a lot on the net. They make up stories about the prophet peace be upon him and lie a lot about him. And if we just pass everything they send us without being sure of its source then we are helping them to do it.Ouch


 Telling lies about the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is a great evil and a serious sin, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Whoever tells lies about me deliberately, let him take his place in Hell.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1229.

 I believe the safest way is never post any hadith without its source. I am sick of hadiths I receive on email.Angry some of them can never never never be the words of the prophet, peace be upon him and I never pass them. I asked some scholars and many were lies.Confused Although they were telling about good deeds. It is the never ending battle between the Islam and the truth enemies.Confused
 May Allah help us..

As Salamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah,
 
Brother, following hadiths are the sources that i shared of the dhikrs to be made before sleep.
 
When Prophet [Pbuh} went to bed to sleep, he would say: “Allaahumma bismika ahyaa wa amoot (O Allaah, in Your name I live and die).” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 7394).
 
 
Among the adhkaar that may be recited before going to sleep, as referred to in the question, is that reported in the hadeeth of ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said that Faatimah (upon whom be peace) came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and asked him for a servant. He said, “Shall I not tell you of something that is better for you than that? When you go to sleep, say ‘Subhaan Allaah’ thirty-three times, ‘Al-hamdu Lillah’ thirty-three times, and ‘Allaahu akbar’ thirty four times.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4943).
 
A similar hadith is also stated in Tirmidhi.
 
 
‘Aa’ishah reported that when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) went to bed, he would cup his hands together, blow into them and recite into them Qul huwa Allaahu ahad [Soorat al-Ikhlaas], Qul a’oodhu bi Rabbi’l-falaq [Soorat al-Falaq] and Qul a’oodhu bi Rabbi’l-naas [Soorat al-Naas] (these are the last 3 soorahs of the Qur’aan – Translator). Then he would wipe as much of his body as he could with his hands, starting with his head and face, and the front of his body. He would do this three times. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4630)
 
It says in a mu’allaq report narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaari (2311) that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) appointed me to guard the zakaah of Ramadaan, then someone came and started rummaging in the foodstuff … and at the end of the hadeeth he said: “When you go to your bed, recite Aayat al-Kursiy, for there will remain with you a guardian from Allaah, and no devil will approach you, until morning comes.” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “He told you the truth although he is a liar. That was a devil.”
 
It was narrated from Abu Mas’ood al-Ansaari (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever recites the last two verses of Soorat al-Baqarah at night, they will suffice him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5009) and Muslim (2714). Ibn al-Qayyim said in al-Waabil al-Sayyib (132): They will suffice him against any evil that may harm him.
 
It was narrated that ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“I did not think that any sane person could sleep without reciting the last three verses of Soorat al-Baqarah.”
 
In al-Adhkaar (220), al-Nawawi attributed it to the report of Abu Bakr ibn Abi Dawood, then he said: It is saheeh according to the conditions of al-Bukhaari and Muslim.
 
So these were the extracts of sahih hadith from Islam-qa. And the last point you made brother, about what i said ; It is also advised to clear our heart if we hold grudge, anger or malice towards everyone and you said that it seems the same that 10 times Astaghfirullah (or any istighfar) equals making two
 
No, brother. There's an intresting hadith behind my saying. Insha Allah, when i find it shall surely share here.
 
May Allah swt help and guide all of us to adhere to sunnahs. Ameen.

As Salamu Alaikum

Sister {Infomagination}, we are not personally aiming you. I do hold goodness for you. But the saying of Ali RA, which you shared, is unauthentic. I tried to check it, few years ago, when i myselves use to recite such. When i came to know after my research that its no where proved, i stopped it.

Hope you did not get hurt. Am sorry, if we hurted you unintentionally
