- Qul HuwALLAHu A’had,
- Qul A’oozu bi Rabbil Falaq and
- Qul A’oozu bi Rabbilnnaas [i.e., the last three surahs of the Qur’an),
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.
The last two verses of Surah Al-Baqarah
It was narrated that Abu Mas‘ood R.A. said: The Prophet ﷺ
“Whoever recites the last two verses of Surah Al-Baqarah every night, they will suffice him.”
Al-Bukhaari (5009) and Muslim (808)
The scholars differed here on the word ‘suffice’. As to what is meant by “they will suffice him.”
It was said that it means they will protect him from harm during the whole night. Or they will take the place of praying qiyaam on that night.
Or maybe the reciter will be rewarded Jannah. And ALLAH knows best.

The Messenger of ALLAH ﷺ said to me: “Recite ‘Say: O disbelievers’ [al-Kaafiroon 109], then go to sleep at the end of it, for it is a disavowal of shirk.”

O ALLAH, Knower of the seen and the unseen, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Lord and Sovereign of all things I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except YOU. I take refuge in YOU from the evil of my soul and from the evil and shirk of the devil, and from committing wrong against my soul or bringing such upon another Muslim.

Narrated Al-Bara bin `Azib:
That the Prophet (ﷺ) advised a man, saying, “If you intend to lie down (i.e. go to bed), say,
اللَّهُمَّ أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ، وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ، وَوَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَيْكَ، وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ، رَغْبَةً وَرَهْبَةً إِلَيْكَ، لَا مَلْجَأَ وَلّا مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلَّا إِلَيْكَ، آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أنْزَلْتَ وَبِنَبِيِّكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ
(ALLAHUMMA aslamtu nafsee ilayka, wafawwadtu amree ilayk, wawajjahtu waj-hee ilayka, wa-aljaatu zahree ilayka, ragh-batan warahbatan ilayka, la maljaa walaa manjaa minka illa ilayka, aamantu bikitabikallazi anzalta, wabinabiyyikallazee arsalta.
O ALLAH, I submit my soul unto You, and I entrust my affair unto You, and I turn my face towards You, and I totally rely on You, in hope and fear of You. Verily there is no refuge nor safe haven from You except with You. I believe in Your Book which You have revealed and in Your Prophet whom You have sent).
And if you should die then (after reciting this before going to bed) you will die on the religion of Islam”
Sahih al-Bukhari 6313
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah R.A. said:
The Messenger of ALLAH R.A. put me in charge of guarding the collected zakaah of Ramadaan. 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 Aayat-al-Kursi 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.”
