WHEN ONE WAKES UP

اَلْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِيْ عَافَانِيْ فِيْ جَسَدِيْ ، وَرَدَّ عَليَّ رُوْحِيْ ، وَأَذِنَ لِيْ بِذِكْرِهِ

All praise is for Allah Who granted me well-being in my body, and returned my soul to me and has allowed me to remember Him.

Alḥamdu li-llāhi-l-ladhī ʿāfānī fī jasadī, wa radda ʿalayya rūḥī, wa adhina lī bi dhikrih.

Abu Hurayrah (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “When one of you leaves his bed then returns to it, then let him brush it off with the edge of his garment three times, for indeed, he does not know what came upon it after him. When he lies down, let him say: ‘In Your Name my Lord, I lie down, and in Your Name, I rise. If You take my soul away then have mercy upon it, and if You return my soul then protect it with what you protect Your righteous servants with.’ And when he awakens, let him say [the above]. (Tirmidhī 3401)

اَلْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِيْ أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُوْرُ

All praise is for Allah Who gave us life after having taken it from us and unto Him is the resurrection.

Alḥamdu li-llāhi-l-ladhī aḥyānā baʿda mā amātanā wa ilayhi-n-nushūr.

Abu Dhar (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhu) narrates that whenever the Prophet ﷺ lay on his bed, he used to say: ‘O Allah, solely in Your Name I die and I live.’, and when he woke up he would say: [the above].’ (Bukhārī 6325)
