Dua : Last words to say before going to sleep

اللَّهُمَّ أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ،
وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ،
وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ، رَهْبَةً وَرَغْبَةً إِلَيْكَ،
لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ،
آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ،
وَبِنَبِيِّكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ

O Allah! I surrender to You and entrust all my affairs to You and depend upon You for Your Blessings both with hope and fear of You. There is no fleeing from You, and there is no place of protection and safety except with You O Allah! I believe in Your Book (the Qur’an) which You have revealed and in Your Prophet (Muhammad salalahu alehi wasalam) whom You have sent.

Narrated Al-Bara bin Azib: That the Prophet (ﷺ) advised a man, saying, “If you intend to lie down (i.e. go to bed), say,
‘Allahumma aslamtu nafsi ilaika wa fauwadtuAmri ilaika, wa wajjahtu wajhi ilaika wa alja’tu zahri ilaika, reghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika. La malja’a wa la manja minka illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabikal-ladhi anzalta; wa nabiyyikalladhi arsalta.’
And if you should die then (after reciting this before going to bed) you will die on the religion of Islam”
