|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
Upon Going Out of the Home (54)
| The Messenger of Allah
said: Whoever says - upon going out of his home: Bismillãh,
tawakkaltu `alã 'allãh, lã hawla wa lã
quwwata 'illã bil-lãhi ta`ãla(*),
it is said to him: You have been sufficed, protected, and guided,
and the shaytan would move aside from him, then say to another shaytan:
What access do you have to a man that has been guided, sufficed, and
(*) I put my trust in Allah,
there is neither might nor strength, except by Allah, the Most High.
Reported by Abu dawood, An-Nisã'ee , and At-Tirmithi and
he said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni said it is as At-Tirmithi
said; rather, he said, it is sound, and he said that Ibn Hibbãn
also reported it in his Saheeh. Al-Albãni included
this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #44.
