What to Say when the Evening Approaches

This booklet is about “What to Say when the Evening Approaches or when one Stops at a Place on his Journey” by Imam Nawawee.

From Abu Hurairah -Radi Allaahu anhu- who said: ‘That a man came to the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- and said: O Messenger of Allaah! It was so bad I was bitten by a scorpion last night! The Messenger of Allaah said:
‘If only you had said when the evening approached: –
I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of what He has created – Nothing would have harmed you.’

Imam Nawawee (d.676 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said: ‘As regards his saying: ‘I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah’: it has been said the meaning of ‘perfect’ here is, those complete things where deficiency and defects cannot enter.
