Abu Daawood, may Allaah have mercy on him, reported in his Sunan that the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: “If a man goes out of his house and says: ‘Bismillaah, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allaah, la hawla wa la quwwata illa Billaah [In the name of Allaah, I put my trust in Allaah, there is no help and no strength except in Allaah],’ 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?’” (REPORTED BY ABU DAAWOOD AND AT-TIRMITHI. SAHEEH AL-JAAMI’, NO. 499)
Siwaak : Imaam Muslim reported in his Saheeh that ‘Aa’ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, said: “When the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, entered his house, the first thing he would do was use Siwaak.” (REPORTED BY MUSLIM, KITAAB AT-TAHAARAH, CHAPTER 15, NO. 44).
(7) Continuously reciting Chapter Al-Baqarah in the house to ward off the Shaytaan
There are a number of narrations concerning this, such as:
The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: “Do not make your houses into graves. The Shaytaan flees from a house in which Soorat Al-Baqarah is recited.” (REPORTED BY MUSLIM, 1/539)
The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: “Recite Soorat Al-Baqarah in your houses, for the Shaytaan does not enter a house in which Soorat al-Baqarah is recited.” (REPORTED BY AL-HAAKIM IN AL-MUSTADRAK. 1/561; SAHEEH AL-JAAMI’, 1170).
Concerning the virtues of the last two Aayaat of this Chapter, and the effect of reciting them in one’s house, he, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: “Allaah wrote a document two thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, which is kept near the Throne, and He revealed two Aayaat of it with which He concluded Soorat al-Baqarah. If they are recited in a house for three consecutive nights, the Shaytaan will not approach it.” (REPORTED BY IMAAM AHMAD IN AL-MUSNAD, 4/274, AND OTHERS. SAHEEH AL-JAAMI’, 1799).
