By praying Surah Kafirun at night time one is protected from shrik?
This is the first time I heard about it. Is it true?
Sayyiduna Nawfal Al-Ashja’i (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:
Recite Surah Kafirun before sleeping, for it is a protection from Shirk (polytheism)
(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 5016, Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3403)
Declared authentic (sahih) by Imams Ibn Hibban, Hakim & Dhahabi (rahimahumullah)
Refer to Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 789, Mustadrak Hakim, vol.2 pg.538 & also see: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.10 pg. 121 & Al-Futuhatur Rabbaniyyah, vol.3 pg.156.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
