Meaning of being protected from ‘destruction by sin’

Question

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?

Du’as when entering the Masjid

Question

Is the following du’a authentic?

“I seek refuge in the Almighty Allah, by His Noble Self and by His primordial reign, from Shaytan the outcast. O Allah, open for me the doors of Your mercy.”

If this Hadith is authentic, can we use it to establish that the word Qadim can be used to describe Allah Ta’ala?

Has the word ‘Qadim’ been used in any other Hadith to describe Allah Ta’ala?
