Bedtime Sunnahs or Prophetic actions continues

12. Reading (reciting) the last two verses of Surat Al-Baqarah, starting with His words (Exalted be He): The Messenger has believed in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and the believers believe, for the hadith: this who recites them at night, they suffice him, narrated by Al Bukhari and Muslim.Scholars disagreed about the meaning of “they suffice him”: it has been said: they are sufficient for him /her as he needn’t perform the Qiyam of his night. Also, it has been said that they protect him against every evil and vise versa. I have said: it may mean both things… the end of An-Nawawi’s words (Al-Adhkar).13.One should be pure, for the hadith if you go to bed, have an ablution that is to perform an ablution.14. Sleeping on the right side… (…then lie on your right side …). Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.15. One should put the right hand under his cheek when he lay down, the Prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him use to put his right hand under his cheek. Narrated by Abu-Dawoud.16. Dusting the bed off when anyone of you goes to his bed, he should dust it off… as he does not know what he has left behind him…. Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.17. Reciting Surat, Say, “O you disbelievers”, one of its benefits : it is an acquittal of polytheism, narrated by Abu-Dawoud, At-Temidhi and Ahmad, and was proved to be authentic by Ibn-Hibban, Al-Hakim and Adh-Dhahabi agreed with him. Also, it was proved to be good by Al-Hafedh and authentic by Al-Albani.· An-Nawawi said: one should give priority to doing everything stated in this chapter, but, if he could not, he might be confined to doing what he can do of its most important items.· By observation, we find that most people sleep twice in their day and night, as then, they would have applied these Prophetic actions (Sunnah) , or some of them twice, because these Sunnahs are not restricted to night’s sleep, rather they include even sleeping during the day as the hadith are general.The benefits of applying these Sunnahs at bedtime:1. Hundred 100 sadaqa (charitable deeds) is written for the Muslim when he keeps these glorifications constantly before sleeping, for the hadith: “every glorification is sadaqa, every time one says: Allah is The Greater is sadaqa, every praise to Allah subhanahu wataalah is a sadaqa and every time one says: there is no worthy of worshipbut Allah is sadaqa…”. narrated by Muslim. An-Nawawi said: has the same reward. 2. If the Muslim preserves these glorifications before sleeping, hundred 100 trees will be planted for him in paradise, for the previous hadith narrated by Ibn-Majah, about the benefits of post-prayer adhkar.3. Allah protects the slave from the devil, keeps away from him in that night and he remains safe from evils and lesions.4. The slave ends his day with remembering Allah, obeying Him, putting trust on Him, asking Him for help and declaring His oneness (there is no god except Allah).
