BUILD YOUR HOME THE RIGHT WAY
Reciting adhkaar and du’as meant for the home
There are certain adhkars that when recited regularly in the home protect against evil and help to entrench the foundation for a beautiful home.
RasululLah SallalLahu alaihi wa sallam said: “When any one of you enters his home and mentions the Name of Allah and sits to eat, the Shaytaan says to himself: ‘You have no place to stay and nothing to eat here.’ If he enters and does not mention the name of Allah when he enters, [the Shaytaan] says, ‘You have a place to stay.’ If he does not mention the name of Allah when he eats, [the Shaytaan says], ‘You have a place to stay and something to eat.’”
(Ahmad, al-Musnad, 3/346; Muslim, 1599).
RasululLah SallalLahu alaihi wa sallam said: “If a man goes out of his house and says, ‘BismilLah, tawakkaltu ‘alalLah, Wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa BilLah (In the name of Allah, I put my trust in Allah, there is no help and no strength except in Allah),’ it will be said to him, ‘This will take care of you, you are guided, you have what you need and you are protected.’ The Shaytaan will stay away from him, and another shaytaan will say to him, ‘What can you do with a man who is guided, provided for and protected?’” (Abu Dawoud and al-Tirmidhi; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 499).
