One should recite the following Duaa upon entering the home and thereafter make salaam:

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.

 

عن أبى مالك الأشعرى قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إذا ولج الرجل فى بيته فليقل اللهم إنى أسألك خير المولج وخير المخرج بسم الله ولجنا وبسم الله خرجنا وعلى الله ربنا توكلنا ثم ليسلم على أهله. (ابو داود رقم 5098)

 

Hadhrat Abu Maalik Ashari (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “When one enters his home, he should recite the following duaa and thereafter make salaam to his household

 

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

Dua For Leaving Home

 

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ، لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ
 

 

 

Transliteration: Bismillahi Tawakkaltu Alallah, Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quwwata illa Billah

 

Translation: In the name of Allah, I place my trust in Allah, there is no power and might except with Allah

 

In the Hadith it is mentioned whoever recites this Dua when leaving home, the Mala’ikah make the following Dua: “May you be guided, may Allah be sufficient for you, may you be protected from all harm” and Shaitaan distances himself away from the person.
(Tirmizi).

A Powerful Dua for Protection
 
We are living in a country where hijacking, burglaries and crime are the order of the day. We hear of incidents occurring daily and because of this, we are in a constant state of fear and worry. Every person dreads being held up or harmed. Just the mere thought of a burglary is enough to send shivers down our spines.
 
Our beautiful Deen is perfect and complete. It has taken care of every aspect of our lives and has also taken into consideration our safety and comfort. Our Deen has also taught us methods of gaining the Divine protection of Allah (the Being Whom, there is no Might and Power besides His). If our Loving Allah protects us, what else do we need?
 
Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam has taught us a beautiful Dua to recite when leaving the home. It will take a few seconds to recite, but the benefits are tremendous. Learn the Dua, understand its meaning and recite it when leaving the home with full conviction in the words of Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam. By doing this, our hearts will be at ease and Allah Ta’ala will protect us from all evils and calamities, Insha’Allah. Teach it to our children as well and ensure that they recite it when leaving home. There can be no doubt in the prescription of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
 
Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, “Whoever recites this Dua when leaving home, the Angels say to him, ‘That (Dua) suffices you; you shall be guided, your needs shall be taken care of and you will be protected.’” (Nasaai) In the narration of Abu Dawood an additional benefit is mentioned that shaytaan goes  far away from him.
 
بِسْمِ اللهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ لَاحَوْلَ وَلَاقُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللهِ
   
(I leave) with the name of Allah, I rely on Allah, there is no power to do any good, nor any power to abstain from evil, except with the help of Allah.
