Hudhaifah and Abu Dharr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to supplicate when he went to bed at night: “Bismik-Allahumma ahya wa amut (With Your Name, O Allah, I expire and return to life).” [Al-Bukhari]

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “When any of you goes to bed, he should shake off (or dust off) his bedsheet because he does not know what might have fallen on it after he had left it. Then he should recite: ‘Bismika Rabbi wada’tu janbi, wa bika arfa’uhu, in amsakta nafsi farhamha, wa in arsaltaha fahfazha bima tahfazu bihi ‘ibadakas-salihin [With Your Name, my Rubb, I place my side (upon the bed) and with Your Grace I will raise it up. If You withhold my soul (cause me to die), have mercy on it but if You let it go (let me live), guard it against which You guarded Your pious slaves].” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

‘A ishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: Whenever the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) went to bed, he would blow upon his hands recite Al-Mu’awwidhat; and pass his hands over his body. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) went to his bed, he would say: “Al-hamdu lillah-illadhi at’amana wa saqana, wa kafana wa awana, fakam mimman la kafiya lahu wa la mu’wiya (Praise is due to Allah Who has fed us, provided us drink, satisfied us and gave us protection. Many are those who have no one to provide for them, or give them shelter).” [Muslim]

Hudhaifah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Whenever the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) intended to go to sleep, he would place his right hand under his (right) cheek and supplicate: “Allahumma qini ‘adhabaka yauma tab’athu ‘ibadaka (O Allah! Guard me against Your punishment on the Day when You will resurrect Your slaves).” [At-Tirmidhi]
