Etiquettes of the Night

عن جابر رضي الله عنه، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، قال:  إذا استجنح الليل، أو قال: جنح الليل، فكفوا صبيانكم  فإن الشياطين تنتشر حينئذ، فإذا ذهب ساعة من العشاء فخلوهم، وأغلق بابك واذكر اسم الله، وأطفئ مصباحك واذكر اسم الله، وأوك سقاءك واذكر اسم الله، وخمر إناءك واذكر اسم الله، ولو تعرض عليه شيئا (بخاري رقم 3280)

Hazrat Jaabir (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: When evening approaches (i.e. the time before maghrib till the night sets in), keep your children indoors and do not allow them to leave the home, for the Shayaateen roam about at that time. When a portion of the night passes, then you may leave them, and take the name of Allah Ta’ala when closing your door, and take the name of Allah Ta’ala when putting off your lantern, and take the name of Allah Ta’ala when tying your waterbag, and take the name of Allah Ta’ala when covering your utensils (and ensure to cover your utensils) even if it means placing something above it (i.e. placing something across it on the top).”
