Day / Night Duas

Dua when waking up

الحَمْدُ لِلهِ الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ

All praise is for Allah who gave us life after causing us to die, and unto Him is the resurrection.
alḥamdu lillaahil-ladhee aḥyaanaa ba‛da maa amaatanaa wa ilayhin-nushoor
Dua and remembrance before sleeping

ٱللهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلْحَيُّ ٱلْقَيُّومُ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ لَّهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ مَن ذَا ٱلَّذِى يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُۥۤ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِۦ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِۦۤ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ وَلَا يَئُودُهُۥ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ ٱلْعَلِيُّ ٱلْعَظِيمُ (٢٥٥)

Abu Huraira said, “The messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) put me in charge of the Zakat of Ramadan (i.e. Zakat-ul-Fitr). Someone came to me and started scooping some of the foodstuff of (Zakat) with both hands. I caught him and told him that I would take him to Allah’s messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).” Then he (Abu Huraira) told the whole narration and added , He (i.e. the thief) said,, “When you are about to sleep recite ayat-al-kursee (The verse of the foot-stool, Surah Baqarah 2:255) till the end of the verse for there will remain over you a protection from Allah and no devil will draw near to you until the morning.”, the messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) (upon hearing this) said: “He (i.e. the theif) told the truth even though he is a habitual liar, he was a shaytan”

Allâh! Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth.

Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission. He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills.

His Kursee extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

N.B. This verse is famously known as “Ayat Alkursee/Alkursi” or “the Verse of The Footstool”
