Sunnah of the Week #1: Dua Before Sleeping

In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Especially Compassionate

This week we will begin to implement the sunnan of the blessed Messenger, inshaAllah. Each week, we will add another sunnah to our daily routines. You can see the full story behind this idea in the post A Sunnah a Day Keeps the Devil Away.

Here is a simple dua to recite before you go to sleep, while you are lying in bed. Try to do it with as much sincerity in your heart as possible. Note, you must have this dua memorized by the end of Friday in order to implement it everyday for the next week. If you do not understand Arabic, make sure to have a rough translation memorized as well, inshaAllah.

اللَّهُمَّ قِنِي عَذَابَكَ يَوْمَ تَبْعَثُ عِبَادَكَ

 Allaahumma qinee ‘athaabaka yawma tab’athu ‘ibaadaka.

O Allah, save me from Your punishment on the Day that You resurrect Your slaves.

Make a commitment with yourself to implement this sunnah. Below is a poll in which you can affirm your commitment to, inshaAllah, a growing community here on the Muslim Theist. This will act as positive peer pressure as well as an accountability mechanism. Next Friday, I will take another poll whereby you will have a chance to hold yourself accountable regarding the commitment you made this week, and to grade yourself on how well you did, inshaAllah. May Allah grant us all tawfeeq on this journey!

Are you committed to getting closer to Allah and His Messenger by implementing the above Sunnah this week?
