Duaa When Leaving Home – 1

One should recite the following duaa when leaving the home

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ

In the name of Allah Ta’ala I place my complete reliance and trust upon Allah. There is no ability to do any good and no power to restrain from any harm or evil except through the grace of Allah Ta’ala.

عن أنس بن مالك أن النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إذا خرج الرجل من بيته فقال بسم الله توكلت على الله لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله. قال: يقال حينئذ هديت وكفيت ووقيت فتتنحى له الشياطين فيقول له شيطان آخر كيف لك برجل قد هدى وكفى ووقى (ابو داود رقم 5097)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “When a person leaves his home and recites the following Duaa:

بسم الله توكلت على الله لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله

An angel proclaims, “You have been guided, your needs have been seen to, and you have been protected.” The Shayateen then distance themselves from him, and another shaytaan says: “How can you gain control over a man who has been guided, whose needs have been fulfilled and who has been protected and granted safety?”
