Q. Is there any basis to keep one’s children indoors at Maghrib time?


A. There are numerous Ahadith which state that children should not be kept outside at/around nightfall/sunset time.

Sayyiduna Jaabir Bin Abdullah Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “When night falls or it is evening, keep your children close to you for the devils spread out at that time. After a period of the night elapses, you can let them free. Close the doors and mention the Name of Allah, for the devil does not open a closed door.” (Bukhari)
