After a while practising it before sleep, I think its worth to share with other readers…(InsyaAllah for good,..InsyaAllah)
1. Recite three times al-ikhlas (which is as equal as reciting the holy Qur’an, i mean whole)
2. Recite three times salawat (which is to gain for syafaat from Prophet Muhammad pbuh)
3. Recite three times istigfar (which is to purify yourself from all sins you’ve comitted everyday)
4. Recite three times dzikir of subhanAllah, walhamdulillah, wala-ilaha illallah wallahu akbar (which means; Glory be to Allah, All praise is to Allah, there is no god but Allah; Allah loves his servant whom recite this dzikir)
Instead of listening to music even nasyeed, it’s better we recite something more beneficial (i didnt mean that hearing nasyeed is not good, but we may never know that Allah may put our lives to an end while we are sleeping). Encouraging for good, spread the sunnah. =)
p/s : Prophet Muhammad pbuh encouraged Aisyah ra to recite the followings before sleep, and Prophet Muhammad pbuh also recite As-Sajadah or Al-Mulk before sleeping as these two surah will brighten our grave, Allah’s will.
