Prayers Before Retiring to Bed

It is reported in sahïh Bukhãri that God’s Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم said to al-Barã’ bin ‘Ãzib: “Before you retire to bed, take your ablution as if you were going to perform your regular prayers, lie down on your right side and say: ‘Lord, I submit myself to You, put my soul in Your hand, turn my face to You, trust my destiny to You, put my trust in Your protection, soliciting You, and fearing You. I have no escape from You but to seek refuge in You. I believe in Your revealed Book and the Prophet You sent.’ Make these the last words you say for that night. Should it be your destiny to die that night, you would have died as a believer.”
