Every night before lying down to sleep, the Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, would perform nightly rituals.

We will discuss it in this article to help you be a model for your life after the Prophet, based on what is recorded in the hadith.

The importance of supplication in Islam

The dua is a way of connecting a believer with Allah Almighty. For everything, Muslims pray to Allah Almighty, whom they believe to be the most powerful. 

Here, you will find English translations of the Dua for sleeping or Supplications before sleeping. The following duas can be made before falling asleep. 

It is extremely critical for you to take note of these. You will need to make it your habit to sleep in a state of Wudu before going to sleep, and to recite dua before getting to bed as well.

In terms of duas for sleeping, there are many to choose from

Duas for sleeping

1- O God, I surrender myself to You, and I delegate my command to You. I turn my face to You, and fear for You. There is no refuge or escape from You but to You.

2- In the name of God, I laid down my side, O God, forgive my sin, degrade my demon, and place me in the highest ranks.”

3- “Praise be to God who has sufficed me and my utensils, who fed me and gave me drink, and who has bestowed upon me and is better, and who has given me so that I am more. Praises be to God in all circumstances. God is the Lord and Sovereign of everything, and the God of everything I seek refuge in You from the Fire.”

3- O Allah, you created my soul and you take it away, for you its death and its life, O Allah, if you take it, forgive it, and if you revive it, then protect it, O Allah, I ask you for wellness.”

4- O God, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, Lord and Sovereign of everything, I bear witness that there is no god but You. I seek refuge in You from the evil of myself and the evil of Satan and his company.

5- A prayer from Surah Al-Baqarah


Allah is the greatest! I believe that there can be no god “worthy of worship” other than Him, the Ever-Living, All-Sustaining God. There is neither drowsiness nor sleep that can overtake Him. All that exists in the heavens and all that exists on earth belongs to Him. It is impossible for anyone to be able to intercede for Him without His permission. No one can grasp any part of His knowledge, except for what He intends to reveal to them. This is because He knows what lies ahead of them as well as what lies behind them. It is not exhausting for Him to take care of the heavens and earth since His Seat1 encompasses them both and He does not tire of doing so. It is for this reason that He is the Most High, the Greatest. 

In conclusion,

By dua, the believers are connected to the Almighty Allah. All Muslims believe that Allah Almighty is the most powerful and pray to Him for everything.

These matters are of great importance to you. Start by reciting dua before you go to sleep, and make Wudu your sleeping habit.
