Reciting the kalimahs before sleeping

Q: What is the حیثیت of reading kalimas before sleeping?


A: The exact wording of many of these kalimahs appear in the Hadith and some of them their meaning and essence is found in the Hadith. Hence there is no haraam if one recites it before going to sleep or at any other time with reflecting over its meaning in order to strengthen one’s Imaan.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
