Virtue of reciting Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas before sleeping

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is there any Hadith stating the virtue of reciting Surah Fatihah before going to bed?

Answer

I have come across the following narration which mentions the virtue of reciting Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas before going to bed:

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “When you lay down on your bed and recite Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas, you will certainly be protected from everything except death”

(Bazzar; Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 121)

The above Hadith is suitable to quote.

(See Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 416 & Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 121)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
