One of the most common and easiest ways to get a good night’s sleep is to recite dua before bed. When we say dua, it means “supplication” in Arabic. It gives you spiritual satisfaction and safe and peaceful sleep from all unseen and harmful creations. There are multiple authentic narrations about dua for going to sleep.

Dua for going to sleep

These are some Authentic supplications that should be read before sleeping:

1. Blowing into cupped arms:

It was narrated from ‘Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) that when the Prophet ﷺ went to his bed every night, he would put his cupped hands together, then blow into them, then recite into them  Qul Huwa Allahu ahad, Qul a’udhu bi Rabb il-Falaq and Qul a’udhu bi Rabb il-Nas [i.e., the last three surahs of the Quran), then he would wipe his hands over as much of his body as he could, starting with his head and face, and the front part of his body. He would do that three times. (Al-Bukhari)

2. Recitation of Ayat al-Kursiy

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) put me in charge of guarding the collected zakah of Ramadan. Someone came and started to rummage in the food. I took hold of him and said, I will surely take you to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ .… He [the one who came and rummaged in the food] said, When you go to your bed, recite Ayat al-Kursiy and you will be protected by Allah, and no devil will come near you until morning. The Prophet ﷺ said, “He told you the truth even though he is a liar. That was a devil. (Al-Bukhari)

3. Recitation of the last two verses for Surah al-Baqarah

 Abu Mas‘ud (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Whoever recites the last two verses of Surah al-Baqarah every night, they will suffice him.” (Al-Bukhari)

4. Specific Dua

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (may Allah be pleased with him) said: When the Prophet ﷺ wanted to sleep , he would say,

بِاسْمِكَ اللَّهُمَّ أَمُوتُ وَأَحْيَا

“Bismika Allahumma amutu wa ahya

(In your name, O Allah, I die and I live)”, and when he woke up he would say “Al-hamdu Lillah alladhi ahyana ba’da ma amatana wa ilayhi al-nushur (Praise be to Allah who has brought us back to life after causing us to die, and to Him is the resurrection). (Al-Bukhari)
