A du’a for sharpening the eyesight


Somebody shared the following with me:

To increase light or vision (noor) in the eyes, recite Surah Fatihah once, then Ayatul Kursi and then once the following dua:- ‘A’udhu nura basari binuril lahil ladhi la yutfa’

The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

Meaning of being protected from ‘destruction by sin’


Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Whoever says the following ten times, at the end of every Fajr prayer, while his feet are still folded, before speaking:

La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadir

(Translation: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone without partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is powerful over all things.)

Ten good deeds shall be written for him, ten sins will be wiped away from him, ten degrees shall be raised up for him, and he shall be in security all that day from every disliked thing, and he shall be in protection from Shaytan, and no sin will meet him or destroy him that day, except for associating partners with Allah.

My question is: 

Does this mean that it is impossible for a person to commit a sin on that day and does this include all major and minor sins?
