Taking the name of Allah Ta’ala when Entering the Home and Before Eating

welcome homeعن جابر بن عبد الله أنه سمع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول إذا دخل الرجل بيته فذكر الله عند دخوله وعند طعامه قال الشيطان لا مبيت لكم ولا عشاء وإذا دخل فلم يذكر الله عند دخوله قال الشيطان أدركتم المبيت وإذا لم يذكر الله عند طعامه قال أدركتم المبيت والعشاء (مسلم رقم 2018)

Hadhrat Jaabir (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying: “When a person enters his home and takes the name of Allah Ta’ala (through salaam and reciting the duaa) at the time of entering and the time of eating, then Shaytaan says (to the other Shayaateen) ‘There is no place here for you to spend the night, nor any food.’ If he enters and did not take the name of Allah Ta’ala at the time of entering, Shaytaan says, ‘You have found a place to spend the night’, and if he did not take the name of Allah Ta’ala at the time of eating, he says ‘You have found a place to spend the night and a place to eat.’

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الْمَوْلِجِ وَخَيْرَ الْمَخْرَجِ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ وَلَجْنَا وَبِسْمِ اللَّهِ خَرَجْنَا وَعَلَى اللَّهِ رَبِّنَا تَوَكَّلْنَا

O Allah I ask You for the blessings of entering the home and the blessings of leaving the home. In the name of Allah Ta’ala we enter, and in the name of Allah Ta’ala we leave, and upon Allah Ta’ala our Lord we place our trust.
