Covering utensils at night

Question

Could you provide the narration on covering or inverting utensils at night?

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says, I heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying,

“Cover the utensils and tie the water skins, for there is a night in a year when a disease descends and it does not pass an uncovered utensil or an untied water skin but that it enters it”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2014)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
