Following the Sunnah
Following one sunnah action is better than praying lots of wazaaif (extra prayers)
Recite this dua (above) daily after Maghrib
Recite Surah Ikhlas, Surah Falaq and Surah Nas before sleeping and pass your hand over your body.
Recite Ayat al-Kursi before sleeping and Tasbeeh Fatimi.
Face the Qiblah when you sleep and sleep on your right. Put your right hand under your right cheek.
At least sleep like this from the beginning, then after five to ten minutes if you need to move then it is fine.
Pray: اللهم باسمك اموت واحي
Allahumma bismika amootu wa ahya
اللهم قني عذابك يوم ببعث عبادك
Allahumma qini athabaka yawma tab'athu ibadak
You never know when you are going to die. To sleep this way even for five minutes will be sign of khatima bil khair (a good death).
Take heed from the recent earthquakes. How many people who died who had plans for the next day. Someone may have got married yesterday, or was going to get married tomorrow.
If you sleep this way and have a bad dream, then this will not affect you in anyway.
If you have a bad dream, then pray ta'awwath and spit on the left.
It is a sign of qiyamah that there will be many earthquakes. Take heed from this. The people that passed away, they didn't even know five minutes before that they were going to die!
We should take the effort out to go to the masjid. Some people don't have legs and still come to the masjid, whereas we have cars, but still don't come.
Shaikh Saadi RA once saw people walking with good shoes to the masjid and started wishing he had good shoes to go to the masjid. Soon after he saw someone coming to the masjid with no feet. Straight away, the Shaikh feel into sajdah, thanking Allah for his feet, and asking for forgiveness that he wasn't grateful before.
May Allah give us the tawfiq
Some of the duas Hadhrat made today
O Allah give us tawfiq to thank You,
O Allah make us remember our death,
O Allah cure those who are ill
