Remembrance of Allah at Both Ends of the Day (19)
The Prophet used to teach his companions, saying: "As anyone of you enters upon morning let him say: 'Allãhumma bika 'asbahnã, wa bika 'amsaynã, wa bika nahyã, wa bika namuto, wa 'ilayka 'an-nushooru(35)
; and when he enters upon evening let him say: 'Allãhumma bika 'amsaynã,wabika 'asbahna wa bika nahyã, wa bika namuto, wa 'ilayka 'al maseeru(36)

Reporters

Reported by At-Tirmithi and he said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni agreed but he said that the addition of what to say at night was sound, yet reported by Ibn Mãjah not At-Tirmithi. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #19.
