Dua's for a child experiencing bad dreams

Recommended Posts

Q. Please advise on some duas to be read for a child experiencing bad dreams while sleeping and sometimes waking up crying, or any extra bedtime duas or things one can do for the child before sleeping. 
(Question published as received)
A. We advise you to adhere to the following:
  • Ensure that there are no animate objects, toys, dolls or pictures displayed in the house, especially in the children’s bedroom. Such objects are a cause for the angels of mercy not to enter the home.
  • Recite Surah Faatihah, Aayatul Kursi, and the four Quls and blow on your child before sleeping.
  • Additionally, recite the following Du’aa and blow on your child:
أُعِيْذُكَ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّةِ ، مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ وَهَامَّةٍ ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لَّامَّةٍ
Transliteration: U’ee-zhu-ka Bi Kalimaa-tillaa-hit Tammah Min Kulli Shay-taanin Wa Hammah Wa Min Kulli ‘Aynil Lammah

Translation: I seek refuge for you in the perfect words of Allah from every devil and poisonous creature, and from every harmful evil eye. (Bukhari #3371)
