His Guidance in Glorifying Allah in the Morning and Evening
When morning came he would say: “We are this morning in the natural state of Islam on the word of sincerity, in the religion offather, Abraham, a Muslim inclining toward truth; and he was not of those who associate partners with Allah."
And he said: “O Allah, by You we come to the morning and by You we come to the evening. By You we live and by You we die, and to You is the resurrection."
He also said: “When morning comes for one of you, say: "Morning has come to us and dominion belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
Allah, I ask of You the good of this day, its success, its victory, its light, its blessing and its right guidance. And I seek refuge in You from the evil it contains and the evil that follows it." Then when evening came he would say something similar.
He said "The best supplication for forgiveness is to say: "O Allah, You are my Lord - there is no god but You. You created me and I am Your servant; and I uphold Your covenant and [my] promise to You as much as I am able. I seek refuge in You from the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You my sin, so forgive me. Indeed, there is none who can forgive sins except You."
He added, "Whoever recites it at morning with firm faith in it and dies the same day will enter Paradise. And whoever recites it in the evening with firm faith in it and dies the same day will enter Paradise.
And he said:
“Whoever recites every morning: "La ilaaha'ill- Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahulmulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa `ala kulli shay'in qadeer" (There is no god but Allah alone, having no partner. His is sovereignty and to Him is all praise and He is over all things competent) a hundred times daily, will be rewarded the equivalent of freeing ten slaves and one hundred good deeds will be registered for him and one hundred bad deeds will be erased. That day he will be protected from Satan until evening, and no one will come with something better than that [on the Day of Judgment] except one who has done more.
He used to supplicate in the morning and the evening with these supplications:
"O Allah, I ask You for soundness in this world and the Hereafter. O Allah, I ask You for pardon and soundness in my religion and my world, my family and my property. O Allah, cover my faults and calm my fears. O Allah protect me from before me, from behind me, on my right, on my left and above me. And I seek refuge in your grandeur from being seized from below.
And he said: ''There is not a servant [of Allah] who recites every morning and every evening: 'In the name of Allah with whose name nothing in the earth or the heavens can cause harm, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing' three times but that
nothing will harm him.''
Abu Bakr as-Siddiq asked him: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me what to say when morning comes and evening comes." So he replied, "Say: ''O Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth, Knower of the unseen and the visible, Lord, sovereign and owner of all things, I testify that there is no god but You. I seek refuge in You from the evil of myself and the evil of Satan and his partnership, or that I bring harm upon myself, or bring it to any Muslim'." He added: "Say it in the morning, in the evening and when you go to bed.
