Whoever awakes at night and then says

The Prophet r said : ‘Whoever awakes at night and then says:

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحْـدَهُ لا شَـريكَ له، لهُ المُلـكُ ولهُ الحَمـد، وهوَ على كلّ شيءٍ قدير، سُـبْحانَ اللهِ، والحمْـدُ لله ، ولا إلهَ إلاّ اللهُ واللهُ أكبَر، وَلا حَولَ وَلا قوّة إلاّ باللّهِ العليّ العظيم.

La ilaha illal-lahu wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul-hamd, wahuwa AAala kulli shay-in qadeer, subhanal-lah, walhamdu lillah, wala  ilaha illal-lah wallahu akbar, wala hawla wala quwwata illa billahil-AAaliyyil AAatheem.

‘None has the right to be worshiped except Allah, alone without associate, to Him belongs sovereignty and praise and He is over all things wholly capable.  How perfect Allah is, and all praise is for Allah, and none has the right to be worshiped except Allah, Allah is the greatest and there is no power nor might except with Allah, The Most High, The Supreme.

…and then supplicates:

رَبِّ اغْفرْ لي.

Rabbigh-fir lee

‘O my Lord forgive me.’

…will be forgiven’

Al-Waleed said, “or he r said:

‘and then asks, he will be answered.If he then performs ablution and prays, his prayer will be accepted’.

الحمدُ للهِ الذي عافاني في جَسَدي وَرَدّ عَليّ روحي وَأَذِنَ لي بِذِكْرِه .

 Alhamdu lillahil-lathee AAafanee fee jasadee waradda AAalayya roohee wa-athina lee bithikrih.

‘All praise is for Allah who restored to me my health and returned my soul and  has allowed me to remember Him.’

) إِنّ فِي خَلْقِ السّمَوَ اتِ وَالأرْضِ واخْتِـلافِ اللّيلِ والنّهارِ لآياتٍ لأُولي الألباب (…

(سورة آل عمران 190-200)

)Inna fee khalqi alssamawati waal-ardi wa-ikhtilafi allayli wa-alnnahari la-ayatin li-olee al-albab(

(From Verse 3:190 till the end of the chapter Ali AAimran)

Asking for Forgiveness

Narrated Shaddad bin Aus:

The Prophet said “The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is:
“Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana ‘ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, A’udhu bika min Sharri ma sana’tu, abu’u Laka bini’matika ‘alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta.”
The Prophet PBUH added. “If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise.”[Bukhari Vol 8 Book 75, Hadith 318]
