✨ Sleep with Adkar ✨
📋 Lesson – 12
💚 1 time – sleep
🌹 (باسمك ربي وضعت جنبي، وبك أرفعه؛ إن أمسكت نفسي فارحمها، وإن أرسلتها، فاحفظها بما تحفظ به عبادك الصالحين�)
With Your Name, my Rabb, I place my side (upon the bed) and with Your Grace I will raise it up. If You withhold my soul (cause me to die), have mercy on it but if You let it go (let me live), guard it against which You guarded Your pious slaves.
🎀 Al Bukhari, Muslim 🎀
🔷 (باسمك ربي)
(With Your Name, my Rabb)
🍓 You are starting in the name of your Rabb, because you need your Rabb to reform you before you sleep. And sleep is a blessing from Allah (swt), and anything that is a blessing is a nurturing, meaning you need it in order to be perfected, subhan Allah.
💝 The best of the sleep is to sleep early, may Allah (swt) make it easy for us. Ameen.
🔶 (وضعت جنبي)
(I place my side (upon the bed))
🎾 Though Allah (swt) sees you, you are saying I am putting my side, why are we saying this? Because it is saying that I am starting in your name and placing my side with your help – this is istia’ana. You are saying that by Your nurturing I am putting myself. There are people who cannot even sleep or place themselves on their sides.
🔷 (وبك أرفعه)
(and with Your Grace I will raise it up)
🍯 And with Your help, I will lift myself, and this is a great blessing that I can place myself and lift myself without someone else doing it for me. There are some people who cannot even do this, subhan Allah. So alhamdullaih that we are able to do this.
🔶 (إن أمسكت نفسي فارحمها)
(If You withhold my soul (cause me to die), have mercy on it)
💊 If You hold my soul, then be merciful on it because my soul might not come back, subhan Allah. You are asking Allah (swt) that if I do not come back, then be merciful on me. Being merciful on me is to be admitted to paradise, we ask Allah of His favor. Ameen.
🔷 (وإن أرسلتها، فاحفظها بما تحفظ به عبادك الصالحين)
(but if You let it go (let me live), guard it against which You guarded Your pious slaves)
🌺 If you bring it back, meaning I didn’t die and I woke up, then protect my soul. And you are saying this before even sleeping. So this means I need mercy when dead and need protection while alive. What kind of protection? As you protect your righteous servants, so you are asking for special protection, not general, subhan Allah.
🔮 Just as you protect the righteous people, protect me like them – this is tawassul. How does Allah (swt) protect them? Protecting their mind, health, wealth, children, life, protecting them in the grave, Day of Judgement, every detail in their life and hereafter, subhan Allah. These adhkaar increase you so much in faith when you see their depth, subhan Allah.
