According to a hadith narrated by Prophet Muhammad PBUH, when a person recites the dua for leaving home upon stepping out of their house, they are granted protection from any harm by the power of Allah. This act causes the devil to distance themselves from the person, and they are constantly guided and safeguarded.

The remembrance of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) holds immense significance for us Muslims. It is crucial to keep His name on our lips, even during the most routine and mundane activities of our daily lives. This practice not only enhances our consciousness of Allah but also reinforces our faith, ultimately contributing to our growth as devout Muslims.


It’s important to keep these essential duas with you at all times, so you don’t forget to recite them. You can carry them in your pocket or save them on your smartphone, making it easy to recite them when leaving or entering your home.
