Dua when entering and leaving the home

The number of times we go in and out of the house, we will easily lose count. But are we safe and protected?

By reading two very simple du’as we will gain protection from Allah Ta’ala! 

Dua when leaving the home

By reading this dua Allah Ta’ala grants:

1) Safety from shaytaan.

2) Sends the angels to protect from harm.

Dua when leaving the home

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللّٰهِ، لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللّٰهِ

Bismillaahi tawakkaltu ‘alallaah, laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah

Translation: “In the Name of Allah, I rely on Allah; There is no might and no power except from Allah.” [Abu Dawud]

When a person reads this dua: A caller will call out: ‘Indeed you have been guided, Allah will be enough for you and you have been saved’. The shaytaan moves away from him and says “how will you misguide one that has been guided and saved?”

Dua when entering the home

Even reading just bismillah when entering results in shaytaan staying away. And by reading the full dua, you gain other blessings contained in the meaning of the dua and also the blessings of following a Sunnah.

Dua when entering the home

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الْمَوْلِجِ وَخَيْرَ الْمَخْرَجِ؛ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ وَلَجْنَا وَ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ خَرَجْنَا وَعَلَى اللَّهِ رَبِّنَا تَوَكَّلْنَا

Allahumma in asaluka khayral molaji wa khayal makhraji bismillahi walajna wa bismillahi kharajna wa alallahi rabbi a tawakkalna.

Translation: “O Allah, I ask of you a good entry and a good exit. In the name of Allah, we enter and in the name of Allah we and upon Allah, our sustainer do we keep our trust.” [Abu Dawud]

Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah رضي الله عنه has narrated that he heard the Prophet ﷺ say:

“When a man enters his house and mentions Allah when he enters and when he eats, the Shaytaan says (to other shayateen): 

‘You have no place to stay and no dinner.’ 

But if he enters and does not mention Allah when he enters, the Shaytaan says, ‘You have found a place to stay.’ 

And if he does not mention Allah when he eats, he says: ‘You have found a place to stay and dinner.’” (Muslim)

Benefits of reading the Dua when entering and leaving the home:

1) We are under Allah’s protection.

2) We are safeguarded from shaytaan

3) We are placing our trust in Allah Ta’ala

4) We are asking of Allah Ta’ala and showing humility

5) Allah Ta’ala becomes happy with us.

6) We are practicing on a sunnah

7) We will be rewarded for our action.
