Q: The question surrounding Magrieb and staying indoors for women and children, closing doors, pots, etc. Are these substantiated from Hadith?
A: Yes, these points are mentioned in a few Hadeeth; in Muslim, Bukhaari, Musnad Ahmad. The reason is that at the time of Magrib the Shayateen emerge.
The doors, utensils, etc. should be closed and covered at night.
