Dua Before Sleeping By Mufti Menk
Wallahi Sleep is a great neyma (blessing) and gift of allah and Allah says, do you know we take your soul when you are asleep?
We take your soul!
If death is written for you in your sleep we keep that soul. so you die. and if death is not written, soon as someone wakes you up we send or soon as you wake up, we send the soul back and you out again this is the explanation in the Quran Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala says this in verse number 42 of Surah Az-zumur if you read it you get a shock it means sleep
اَللّٰهُ يَتَوَفَّى الۡاَنۡفُسَ حِيۡنَ مَوۡتِهَا وَالَّتِىۡ لَمۡ تَمُتۡ فِىۡ مَنَامِهَا ۚ فَيُمۡسِكُ الَّتِىۡ قَضٰى عَلَيۡهَا

no Subhan Allah this is Allah`s gift. Allah says they won’t know.
Amazing so Allah says that verse number 42 it is Allah who takes the souls away at the time of the death Allah takes them away and he takes the souls away of those who have not died whilst they are asleep so he keeps the souls of those whom death has been written in their sleep and the others he sends them back for a fixed portion of time this is a power this is why before you sleep, this is the point I want to raise we want peace in the akhirah (hereafter) don’t we?
sort your matter out between you and Allah before you rest at night before you close your eyes ask allah‘s forgiveness say Ya Allah
this was the dua of Muhammad (sallallaahu Salam) if you take my soul away forgive it. before he slept he said if you have taken my soul away in my
