Getting Forgiveness at Bed Time

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said:

Whoever says, when he gets to bed:

لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، وَحْدَهُ لَا شَريكَ لَهُ، لَهُ المُلْكُ، وَلَهُ الحَمْدُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْئٍ قَدِيرُ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوُةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ، سُبْحَانَ اللهِ، وَالحَمْدُ لِله، وَلَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَاللهُ أَكْبَرُ.

There is nothing to be worshiped in truth except Allāh alone; He has no one sharing [anything] with Him; to Him alone do all things belong and the decision over all things, and to Him alone is due all praise and gratitude, and He is, over everything, All-Able and All-Powerful; there is no changing any situation and no ability to do so except as Allāh wills and ordains. Far is Allāh above any imperfection, and to Him is due all praise and thanks; there is nothing to be worshiped in truth except Allāh alone, Allāh is greater [than everything].

will have his sins forgiven–or he said, “his mistakes [forgiven],” [the narrator], Misʿar [ibn Kidām] having been unsure–even if they were like froth on the sea.
