Virtue of reciting Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas before sleeping

Question

Is there any Hadith stating the virtue of reciting Surah Fatihah before going to bed?

Answer

I have come across the following narration which mentions the virtue of reciting Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas before going to bed:

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “When you lay down on your bed and recite Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas, you will certainly be protected from everything except death”

(Bazzar; Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 121)

The above Hadith is suitable to quote.

(See Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 416 & Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 121)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
