An Abandoned Sunnah which is a Protection from Harm


أبي هُرَيرة ، عَن النَّبِيّ صَلَّى الله عَلَيه وَسَلَّم قال : إذا خَرَجْتَ مِنْ مَنزِلِكَ فَصَلِّ رَكْعَتَين تَمْنَعَانِكَ مَخْرَجَ السُّوءِ ، ِوَإِذا دَخَلْتَ مَنْزَلَكَ فَصَلِّ رَكْعَتَين تَمْنَعَانِكَ مَدْخَلَ السُّوء

Abu Hurayrah (May Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet(peace and blessings be upon him)said

Whenever you intend to leave your house you should pray two rakah  right before you leave. These rakah will protect you from harm while outside. And when you come back home you should pray another two rakah. They will safeguard you from harm in your house.

Al-Albani (We ask Allaah to have mercy on him) said in his Silsilah Saheehah 3/315


This isnad of this hadeeth is acceptable and the narrators are trustworthy men used by Bukhari. This hadeeth is mentioned in Al- Muntaqah (12/69/1), Al-Bazaar in his Musnad(81), Ad-Daylamee in his Musnad (1/1/108), and Abdul-Ghani in Akbar-As-Salaah(1/67 and 2/68)

Al-Alaamah Muhammad Adbur-Rau’f Al-Munaawee said in Faydul Qadir : If a person intends leave his home it is recommended that he prays two rak’ah which are considered sunnah. These rak’ah should be short.i.e recite a small Surah after Fateehah…

And Allaah the Most High knows best
