From Anas bin Malik who said that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Whosoever said when he goes to his bed to sleep:


الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي كَفَانِي وَآوَانِي

Praise be to Allaah Who has sufficed me and given me shelter,


Alhamdulillaah allathi kaffaani wa Awaani


الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَطْعَمَنِي وَسَقَانِي

Praise be to Allaah Who has fed me and given me drink,

Alhamdulillaah allathi Atta’amani wa Saqqani


الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي مَنَّ عَلَيَّ فَأَفْضَلَ

Praise be to Allaah Who has blessed me and increased blessings upon me,


Alhamdulillaah allathi Manna alayee fa Afdaala


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أَنْ تُنَجِّيَنِي مِنْ النَّارِ’

O Allaah indeed I ask of You, by Your Honour to save me from the Hellfire.’


Allaahumma inni assaluka bi ‘Izza’atak un Tanjeeni min an-Naar.


فقد حمد الله بمحامد الخلق كلهمُ”.

Then he has praised Allaah with all the praises of all creation.’

[Collected by al-Hakim, Ibn Sunni in ‘Amal al-Yawm wa Layla’, al-Bayhaqi in ‘al-Shau’ab’ & graded Saheeh by Al-Albaani in Silsilah as-Saheehah no. 3444]

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي كَفَانِي وَآوَانِي ،
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَطْعِمْنِي وَسَقَانِي ،
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي مَنَّ عَلَيَّ فَأَفْضَلَ ،
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أَنْ تُنَجِّيَنِي مِنَ النَّارِ

‘Praise be to Allaah Who has sufficed me and given me shelter,
Praise be to Allaah Who has fed me and given me drink,
Praise be to Allaah Who has blessed me and increased blessings upon me,
O Allaah indeed I ask of You, by Your Honour to save me from the Hellfire.’

Alhamdulillaah allathi kaffaani wa Awaani
Alhamdulillaah allathi Atta’amani wa Saqqani
Alhamdulillaah allathi Manna alayee fa Afdaala
Allaahumma inni assaluka bi ‘Izza’atak un Tanjeeni min an-Naar.

عن انس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:”من قال حين يأوي الى فراشه:

‘الحمد لله الذي كفاني وآواني،
الحمد لله الذي اطعمني وسقاني،
الحمد لله الذي مَنّ عليّ فأفضل،
اللهم إني اسالك بعزتك ان تنجيني من النار’

فقد حمد الله بمحامد الخلق كلهمُ”.

أخرجه الحاكم (1 /545 – 546) ، وابن السني في “عمل اليوم والليلة ” (229/714) والبيهقي في “الشعب ” اخرجه الالباني في السلسلة الصحيحة [٣٤٤٤].
