A Sunnah du’a to read before sleeping and upon awakening

Question

What is the reference for this Sunnah du’a upon awakening?

“All praise is due to Allah who has granted us life after death and to Him is the resurrection”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this du’a on the authority of Sayyiduna Hudhayfah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The full narration is as follows:

When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) retired to bed, he would say, ‘O Allah, in your name do I sleep and wake up’ (اللهم باسمك أموت وأحيا) and upon awakening, he would say said, ‘Praise be to Allah who gave us life after death, and to Him is the resurrection (الحمد لله الذي أحيانا بعد ما أماتنا وإليه النشور)

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6312)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
