Remembrance of Allah at Both Ends of the Day (18)
Abdullah bin Khubayb said: we went out on a rainy and very dark night, seeking the Prophet to pray for us, then we found him, and he said: "Qul (say)". So I said nothing, then he said: So I said nothing, then he said: "Qul." I said: O' Messenger of Allah! What should I say? He said "Qul huwal-lãhu 'ahad" and the Mu`awwathatayn(34) when you enter upon evening time and when you enter upon morning time, three times, He [Allah] will protect you from everything".

(34) Qul huwal-lãhu 'ahad and the Mu`aw-wathatayn are the last three suwar (plural for surah) of the Qur'ãn. Refer to a translation of the meaning of the Qur'ãn for an explanation of these suwar.


Reported by Abu Dawood, An-Nisã'ee, and At-Tirmithi who said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni agreed with him, said it was of good ascription and included it in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #18.
