Yet, before sleeping it’s also recommended to read some verses in Qur’an, some beneficial duas, or some merciful dhikr that might be beneficial to us. So, in this post, we’re going to find out 20 things to read before sleeping in Islam. Read carefully!

  1. Repeat Isthagafar 3 times before sleeping:

It’s good to perform Wudhu to purify ourselves before going to sleep and repeat Isthagafar 3 times. The main goal is to remind us to always seek for forgiveness from Allah. Then, you may want to read about Benefits of Night Prayers

Asthaghfirullah halladhee laa ilaaha ilallahuwal hayyul qayyumu wa athubu ilay. ” (I seek forgiveness from Allah besides whom there is none worthy of worship, the living, the sustainer of life and to Him I repent – Tirmidhi)

2. After repeating Isthagafar 3 times, try reciting this piece:

Allahumma aslamtu nafsee ilayk, wafawwadtu amree ilayk, wawajjahtu wajhee ilayk, wa-alja’tu thahree ilayk, raghbatan warahbatan ilayk, la maljaa wala manja minka illa ilayk, amantu bikitabikal-lathee anzalt, wabinabiyyikal-lathee arsalt.”

(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 neither 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).

Adding some short Dhikrs to recite before going to sleep is good to find forgiveness from Allah. Our Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah may be upon him) also did short Dhikrs as a form of asking forgiveness from Allah SWT. Read more about Best Way to Seek Forgiveness from Allah

 “Sometimes I perceive a veil over my heart, and I supplicate Allah for forgiveness a hundred times in a day.” (Muslim)

Therefore, it’s good to recite some pieces below and repeat it carefully:

“Glory be to Allah, and Praise, Glory be to Allah, the Supreme.”

Allah, The Merciful One loves the word which is dearest to Him. Our Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah may be upon him) once told in the hadith below:
