|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
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.
