[113:1] Say, "I seek refuge with the Lord of the daybreak [113:2] from the evil of everything He has created, [113:3] and from the evil of the dark night when it penetrates, [113;4]and from the evil of the women who blow on the knots, [113:5] and from the evil of an envier when he envies.
Is there a cure for Jinn, Evil eye & Black Magic?
We say Insha’Allah it has a cure with the Will of Allah (SWT). Our treatment is based on the Qur’aan and we say the treatment because of the noble words of Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam):
حَدَّثَنَا هَارُونُ بْنُ مَعْرُوفٍ وَأَبُو الطَّاهِرِ وَأَحْمَدُ بْنُ عِيسَى قَالُوا حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ أَخْبَرَنِي عَمْرٌو وَهُوَ ابْنُ الْحَارِثِ عَنْ عَبْدِ رَبِّهِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ أَبِي الزُّبَيْرِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ لِكُلِّ دَاءٍ دَوَاءٌ فَإِذَا أُصِيبَ دَوَاءُ الدَّاءِ بَرَأَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ
Sayyidina Jabir (RA) reported Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) as saying:There is a remedy for every malady, and when the remedy is applied to the disease it is cured with the permission of Allah, the Exalted and Glorious. [Muslim]
Are the Jinns not superior to Humans?
No because Allah (SWT) made humans His Vicegerent on Earth and made them (Angels & Jinns) submit to Sayyidina Adam (AS) including Iblees (Shaytaan) who was the most powerful of the Jinns, we know he was Jinn because it is mentioned in the Qur’aan:
وَإِذۡ قُلۡنَا لِلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةِ ٱسۡجُدُواْ لِأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُوٓاْ إِلَّآ إِبۡلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنۡ أَمۡرِ رَبِّهِۦۤۗ أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ ۥ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ ۥۤ أَوۡلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِى وَهُمۡ لَكُمۡ عَدُوُّۢۚ بِئۡسَ لِلظَّـٰلِمِينَ بَدَلاً۬
[18:50] (Recall) when We said to the angels, .Prostrate yourselves before ‘Adam.. So, they prostrated themselves, all of them but Iblis (Satan). He was of the Jinn, so he rebelled against the command of your Lord. Do you still take him and his progeny as friends instead of Me, while they are enemy to you? Evil is he as substitute (of obedience to Allah) for wrongdoers.
Is it possible for a Human to catch a Jinn?
This is one of the methods we use and not the only and exclusive method. This is evidence from the Sunnah of catching a Jinn as follows:
حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنَا رَوْحٌ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، عَنْ شُعْبَةَ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ " إِنَّ عِفْرِيتًا مِنَ الْجِنِّ تَفَلَّتَ عَلَىَّ الْبَارِحَةَ ـ أَوْ كَلِمَةً نَحْوَهَا ـ لِيَقْطَعَ عَلَىَّ الصَّلاَةَ، فَأَمْكَنَنِي اللَّهُ مِنْهُ، فَأَرَدْتُ أَنْ أَرْبِطَهُ إِلَى سَارِيَةٍ مِنْ سَوَارِي الْمَسْجِدِ، حَتَّى تُصْبِحُوا وَتَنْظُرُوا إِلَيْهِ كُلُّكُمْ، فَذَكَرْتُ قَوْلَ أَخِي سُلَيْمَانَ رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مُلْكًا لاَ يَنْبَغِي لأَحَدٍ مِنْ بَعْدِي ". قَالَ رَوْحٌ فَرَدَّهُ خَاسِئًا.
Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) reported Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) as saying:, "Last night a big demon (afreet) from the Jinns came to me and wanted to interrupt my prayers (or said something similar) but Allah enabled me to overpower him. I wanted to fasten him to one of the pillars of the mosque so that all of you could See him in the morning but I remembered the statement of my brother Solomon (as stated in Quran): My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to anybody after me (38.35)." The sub narrator Rauh said, "He (the demon) was dismissed humiliated."" [Bukhari]
The noble companion Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) also had a similar experience:
وَقَالَ عُثْمَانُ بْنُ الْهَيْثَمِ حَدَّثَنَا عَوْفٌ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِيرِينَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ وَكَّلَنِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِحِفْظِ زَكَاةِ رَمَضَانَ، فَأَتَانِي آتٍ، فَجَعَلَ يَحْثُو مِنَ الطَّعَامِ، فَأَخَذْتُهُ فَقُلْتُ لأَرْفَعَنَّكَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم. فَذَكَرَ الْحَدِيثَ فَقَالَ إِذَا أَوَيْتَ إِلَى فِرَاشِكَ فَاقْرَأْ آيَةَ الْكُرْسِيِّ لَنْ يَزَالَ عَلَيْكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ حَافِظٌ، وَلاَ يَقْرَبُكَ شَيْطَانٌ حَتَّى تُصْبِحَ. فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم " صَدَقَكَ وَهْوَ كَذُوبٌ، ذَاكَ شَيْطَانٌ ".
Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) said, "Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) put me in charge of the Zakat of Ramadan (i.e. Zakat-ul-Fitr). Someone came to me and started scooping some of the foodstuff of (Zakat) with both hands. I caught him and told him that I would take him to Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam)." Then Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) told the whole narration and added "He (i.e. the thief) said, 'Whenever you go to your bed, recite the Verse of "Al-Kursi" (2.255) for then a guardian from Allah will be guarding you, and Satan will not approach you till dawn.' " On that the Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said, "He told you the truth, though he is a liar, and he (the thief) himself was the Satan." [Bukhari]
Abstain from Shirk & Ta'weez:
These are generally prohibited in Islamic Shariah but some Shaf'ae & Hanafee Ulamah have made the Ta'weez permissable which have dua & Qur'aan in them e.g. if they can be read then they can be put in the Ta'weez but no one has authorised anything else e.g. Ta'weez containing funny names or funny signs or squares, numbers etc and these are unanimously impermissable.
What are some basic means of protection against these matters?
They following should be a good way of protecting oneself from these evil matters, Insha’Allah:
1 Recite Surah Al-Ikhlas (chapter 112), verses 1 to 4, Surah Al-Falaq (chapter 113), verses 1 to 5 and Surah Al-Naas (chapter 114): verses 1 to 6 3 times daily after Faj’r Salah, Maghrib Salah and before sleeping.

9 Blow on the water water, oil (olive oil etc), Incense
a Drink the Water
b Sprinkle the water all over the house on all apparent surfaces and even on the bed
c Bath in the water
d Massage with the Oil and rub it on areas which are affected specially eczema etc where the Doctors are unable to explain the reasons for the disease.
e Fumigate the House with the Incense
10 Perform this for 12 days.
You can read the Qur'aanic verses on anything in house e.g. Bleach or cleaning materials or cooking materials or soap and shampoos and use it for specially form someone who doesn’t Ruqya done on them so you can read it on their things.
Types of Black Magic:
Magic is basically words and they use (knots) etc to make it stronger but the treatment is in the Qur’aan and we use water, oil and other materials to make it more powerful. There are four ways to make magic and they are:
1 Eaten: When magic is done on edible or drinkable substances it will stick inside your stomach like glue, this has no medical explaination but it may cause unexplained swelling and varying digestive problems in a person. It is treated with 1 tablespoon of Senna leaves boiled in 500ml of Qur’aanic water (see above) for 10 minutes and then drunk on empty stomach. Please note that this may cause serious diarrhoea and pain (may feel like removing glue from your skin) in a patient. Drink it repeatedly until it doesn’t cause pain any longer. When a woman has magic very often it will go to her child and it can cause children to be bad tempered or disobedient and also physically weak and such children should be treated with Senna leaves for four (4) days and a pregnant and breastfeeding woman will pass this to the child and that’s fine, otherwise (small doses) of Senna can be given directly to the child.
2 Placed in the body: When magic is placed in the body by a Jinn and this causes dysfunctioning of various parts of the body e.g. you can’t understand things at School or you forget things what you have previously understood or to stop a woman from becoming pregnant and it is removed by cupping (Hijamah) as stated in the Hadeeth of Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) that cupping (Hijamah) is cure for forty (40) diseases and Magic but you must perform the cupping (Hijamah) where there is the problem and then read the Ruqyah on the patient. The Qur’aan will burn the Jinn or the Magic and the cupping (Hijamah) will remove it but please note that the procedure is different from normal cupping (Hijamah) because we are not trying to cure a disease but remove the Jinn or Magic and the cuts are very small and not a lot of blood needs to be taken.and this can be done at anytime and any day.If you go to a normal cupping (Hijamah) then recite the Qur'aan or listen to it during the procedure and Insha'Allah it will have an effect.
3 Symbolic: This means that they take your hair or your photo or your clothes and they make knots or slaughter animals (on it) and bury it in graveyards or well and this is problematic to remove for the practitioner. Recite [6:122] 11 times and add it to the water by either reading (and blowing) or diluting the water (with its writing) with it and let the patient wash themselves with it and the Magic will go away and there is no reason to go to graveyard and dig it out etc. There are 45 verses for 45 different kinds of Magic and ways to recognise the specific kind of Magic.
أَوَمَن كَانَ مَيْتًا فَأَحْيَيْنَاهُ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُ نُورًا يَمْشِي بِهِ فِي النَّاسِ كَمَن مَّثَلُهُ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ لَيْسَ بِخَارِجٍ مِّنْهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِلْكَافِرِينَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ
4 Contact: The fourth way is by contact is many times its by walking and it could be accidental or deliberately placed in your way or could be done on objects e.g. we have seen Magic done on the lipsticks or a scarf of a woman etc. For the treatment whichever part of the body has problems needs to be done and the patient is given the (Qur'aan) treated water to use.
Summary of Prescription Shaykh Abderraouf Ben Halima (HA) for treating Jinn:
Man is stronger then Jinn and Allah (SWT) has also preferred men to Jinn by making humand His (SWT)'s his Khaleefa so we should not be under the protection of Jinn and don't need them. When you see Jinns in your dreams it is your dream but their reality and most often they come in your dreams as things, demons, military, dogs chasing you etc and you simply recite Bimillah, Allahu-Akbar and seek AllaH (SWT)'s protection and it will stop them and they will run away.
1 Nightmares & Dream World: When you catch him read Ayatul-Kursi and the Qur'aan and when he is dead in the dreams he is really dead. If you have nightmares etc then prepare yourself before sleeping by reading Adhkaar, Ayatul-Kursi , Sunnah duas and you make dua to Allah (SWT) to bring this Jinn in you dream and for you to overpower him and then you recite the verse [2:148] in your dream when you catch him and repeat this verse until he is dead. Don't worry and don't get scared about Jinn's family etc. If its your child or your mother or your wife affected then you can make dua to Allah (SWT) to make their Jinn appear in your dream and the person will Insha'Allah be cured. If you encounter a Jinn or a person who has done Magic on you in the dream then the damage which you inflict upon him (or her) in the dream actaully happens.
اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ ۚ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ ۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ ۚ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ ۖ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
وَلِكُلٍّ وِجْهَةٌ هُوَ مُوَلِّيهَا ۖ فَاسْتَبِقُوا الْخَيْرَاتِ ۚ أَيْنَ مَا تَكُونُوا يَأْتِ بِكُمُ اللَّهُ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
2 Blame Game & Root Cause Analysis: Please understand that many people go a Shaykh and ask him to make Istikhara or someone says that a Jinn told them about who did Magic etc and all of this is Islamically inadmissable and useless! Deal with the problem according to Shariah and don't delve into who did what or who etc.
3 Five ways of defeating Jinns: Following are five (5) ways of defeatting Jinns:
a Dreams: Make sinecer dua for the Jinn to come into your dreams and you defeat them in the dreamworld.
b Paralysis: In some situation when you are lying down you feel a heavy burden upon you and you feel paralysed and in this case turn to close your hands (clench fists) and recite Qur'aan in your head until the burden is relieved and you are able to catch the Jinn and recite Qur'aan on it.
c Appearing in Life: They don't appear as normal but sometimes (as Hadeeth indicates) that they do appear in our normal lives and if you see something weird and you don't know how it got there and it is frightening you then firstly understand that you can't make a Jinn disappear by looking away so fix your gaze on the object and then recite Ayatul-Kursi on the object.
d Physical Possession: This is when people are possessed with Jinn and they scream and act strangely and strange voices come out of the person. The treatment is to hold the patient and recite Ayatul-Kursi and you gently tap the neck but like you are chopping the neck of the person and Insha'Allah the Jinn will feel that the person is getting their head cut off and will run away and when the patient revives you make dua for Allah (SWT) to bring the Jinn back and recite verse [2:148] so you don't let him get away with these games and when the Jinn is back it means that the situation is now reversed that it is the power of Allah (SWT) which has caused the Jinn to be possessed and you continue to gently tap the neck and recite Ayatul-Kursi until the Jinn becomes Muslim or it dies. If its a pack of Jinns then you continue to recite verse [2:148] until they all come and you discuss the matter of them accepting Islam.
وَلِكُلٍّ وِجْهَةٌ هُوَ مُوَلِّيهَا ۖ فَاسْتَبِقُوا الْخَيْرَاتِ ۚ أَيْنَ مَا تَكُونُوا يَأْتِ بِكُمُ اللَّهُ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
e Mental Possession, Weird Thoughts & Inclinations: You need to capture the attention of the Jinn and this is done by talking i.e. when you are talking to someone they have no choice but to pay attention to you so you engage the Jinn in conversation and then you recite verse [30:21] and this emphasises to the Jinn that they cannot mate or build relationship with human and this verse needs to be recited about 30 times. Remember that Jinns are not very intelligent so don't carry long conversation, rather recite the verses of the Qur'aan.
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

It was narrated from Sayyidina Ma’qil ibn Yasaar (RA) that the Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said: “Whoever says three times each morning, ‘A’oodhu Billaah il-samee’ il-‘aleem min al-shaytaan il-rajeem (I seek refuge with Allaah the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the accursed Shaytaan), and recites the last three verses of Soorat al-Hashr, Allaah will send seventy thousand angels to send blessings upon him until evening comes, and if he dies on that day he will die a martyr. And whoever says that in the evening, will be given a similar status.[Tirmidhi]

[59:23] He is Allah, besides whom there is no god, the Sovereign, the Supreme-In-Holiness, the Safe (from all defects), the Giver-Of-Peace, the Guardian, the All-Mighty, the All-Repairer, the Sublime. Pure is Allah from what they associate with Him. [59:24] He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Shaper. His are the Most Beautiful Names. His purity is proclaimed by all that is in the heavens and the earth, and He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
Surah Al-Ikhlaas (Chapter 112), Surah Al-Falaq (Chapter 113) and Surah An-Naas (Chapter 114), morning and evening(after Fajar & Maghrib):
عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ خُبَيْبٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: خَرَجْنَا فِي لَيْلَةٍ مَطِيرَةٍ وَظُلْمَةٍ شَدِيدَةٍ نَطْلُبُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُصَلِّي لَنَا، قَالَ فَأَدْرَكْتُهُ فَقَالَ:"قُلْ" فَلَمْ أَقُلْ شَيْئًا ثُمَّ قَالَ:"قُلْ" فَلَمْ أَقُلْ شَيْئًا قَالَ: "قُلْ" فَقُلْتُ: مَا أَقُولُ قَالَ": "قُلْ: قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ وَالْمُعَوِّذَتَيْنِ حِينَ تُمْسِي وَتُصْبِحُ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ تَكْفِيكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ".
It is reported from Sayyidina Abdullah Ibn Khubaib (RA) that once on a dark rainy night, we went out in search of Rasoolullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and we found him. Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: "Say." I enquired, "What should I say?" He said: "Read Surah Al-Ikhlaas (Chapter 112) Surah Al-Falaq (Chapter 113) and Surah An-Naas (Chapter 114) thrice every morning and evening, it will suffice (as protection) from everything." [Tirmidhi]
Ayatul-Kursi (2:255) should be recited after every Fardh prayer:
ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡحَىُّ ٱلۡقَيُّومُۚ لَا تَأۡخُذُهُ ۥ سِنَةٌ۬ وَلَا نَوۡمٌ۬ۚ لَّهُ ۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِۗ مَن ذَا ٱلَّذِى يَشۡفَعُ عِندَهُ ۥۤ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِهِۦۚ يَعۡلَمُ مَا بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَىۡءٍ۬ مِّنۡ عِلۡمِهِۦۤ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَۚ وَسِعَ كُرۡسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَۖ وَلَا يَـُٔودُهُ ۥ حِفۡظُهُمَاۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَلِىُّ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ
[2:255] Allah: There is no god but He, the Living, the All-Sustaining. Neither dozing overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth. Who can intercede with Him without His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them; while they encompass nothing of His knowledge, except what He wills. His Kursiyy (Chair) extends to the Heavens and to the Earth, and it does not weary Him to look after them. He is the All High, the Supreme.

2 Recite Ayatul-Kursi [2:255] before sleeping
وأخرج البخاري في صحيحه من حديث أبي هريرة قال : وكلني رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم بحفظ زكاة رمضان ، فأتاني آت فجعل يحثو وذكر قصة ، وفي آخرها أنه قال له : دعني أعلمك كلمات ينفعك الله بها ، قلت : ما هي ؟ قال : إذا أويت إلى فراشك فاقرأ آية الكرسي ، فإنك لن يزال عليك من الله حافظ ، ولا يقربك شيطان حتى تصبح ، فأخبر أبو هريرة بذلك رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم فقال : أما إنه صدقك وهو كذوب ، تعلم من تخاطب يا أبا هريرة ؟ قال : لا ، قال : ذلك شيطان كذا
Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) said, "Allah's Apostle (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) put me in charge of the Zakat of Ramadan (i.e. Zakat-ul-Fitr). Someone came to me and started scooping some of the foodstuff of (Zakat) with both hands. I caught him and told him that I would take him to Allah's Apostle (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam)." Then Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) told the whole narration and added "He (i.e. the thief) said, 'Whenever you go to your bed, recite the Verse of "Al-Kursi" (2.255) for then a guardian from Allah will be guarding you, and Satan will not approach you till dawn.' " On that Allah's Apostle (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said, "He told you the truth, though he is a liar, and he (the thief) himself was the Satan." [Bukhari]
3 Recite 3 Quls, blow on the hands and rub it all over the body.
عن عائشة رضي الله عنها : ( أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَانَ إِذَا أَوَى إِلَى فِرَاشِهِ كُلَّ لَيلَةٍ جَمَعَ كَفَّيهِ ثُمَّ نَفَثَ فِيهِمَا فَقَرَأَ فِيهِمَا ( قُل هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ) و ( قُل أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الفَلَقِ ) و ( قُل أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ ) ، ثُمَّ يَمسَحُ بِهِمَا مَا استَطَاعَ مِن جَسَدِهِ ، يَبدَأُ بِهِمَا عَلَى رَأسِهِ وَوَجهِهِ وَمَا أَقبَلَ مِن جَسَدِهِ ، يَفعَلُُ ذَلكَ ثَلاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ) رواه البخاري )
It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (RA) that when the Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) went to bed every night, he would hold his hands together and blow into them, and recite into them Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad, Qul a’oodhu bi rabb il-falaq and Qul a’oodhu bi rabb il-naas. Then he would wipe them over whatever he could of his body, starting with his head and face and the front of his body, and he would do that three times. [Bukhari]
3 Recite the following duas before sleeping and then after waking up respectively:
a "Allahumma bismika amutu wa ahya," اللهم باسمك أموت وأحيا
b "Al-Hamdu lil-lahi al-ladhi ahyana ba'da ma amatana, wa ilaihi an-nushur," الحمد لله الذي أحيانا بعد ما أماتنا وإليه النشور
حدثني موسى بن إسماعيل حدثنا أبو عوانة عن عبد الملك عن ربعي عن حذيفة رضي الله عنه قال كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا أخذ مضجعه من الليل وضع يده تحت خده ثم يقول اللهم باسمك أموت وأحيا وإذا استيقظ قال الحمد لله الذي أحيانا بعد ما أماتنا وإليه النشور
Narrated Sayyidina hudhaifa (RA) : When the Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) went to bed at night, he would put his hand under his cheek and then say, "Allahumma bismika amutu wa ahya," and when he got up, he would say, "Al-Hamdu lil-lahi al-ladhi ahyana ba'da ma amatana, wa ilaihi an-nushur.""
