What a Muslim should do before sleeping

The Prophet (SAW) one day said to Ali (RA): Ya Ali! Do these five things before going to bed at night:

1. Give 4000 Dinars in Sadaqah and then sleep
2. Read one complete Quran and then sleep
3. Pay the price for Jannah and then sleep
4. Make two people happy with each other when they are upset and then sleep
5. Do one hajj and then sleep

Hazrat Ali (RA) said, Ya Rasulullah! This looks impossible, How will I be able to do it?

Then the prophet (SAWS) replied:
Reading the Surah Fatiha 4 times is equal to giving four thousand Dinars in Sadaqah.

Reading Surah Ikhlas 3 times (Qul-huwal – lahu Ahad) is equal to one complete Quran.

Reading any salat Alan nabiy (SAW) 3 times is the price of jannat.

10 times Astagfirullah (or any Istigfari) is equals to making two unhappy people happy with each other.

4 times third Kalima is equal to one hajj {Subhāna-llāhi, wa-l-hamdu li-llāhi, wa lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa-llāhu akbar, Wa lā hawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāhi-l-ʿaliyyi-l-ʿazīm} .
One Ayat al Qursi. (Allah will keep an angel to protect you in your sleep)

After this Ali (RA) said, ya Rasulullah (SAWS)! Now I will do all these before going to bed.

It takes less than 5 minutes for all the above zikr and look at the virtues for it…..who would not want to have all these virtues to be in their book of good deeds?

To remind oneself of it, the easiest way is to write down on a piece of paper all the above zikr to be done before going to sleep and stick that piece of paper just next to your  bed….and of course Allah is the one to remind..
