«إذا أتيت مضجعك فتوضأ وضوئك للصلاة ثم اضطجع على شقك الأيمن ثم قل: اللهم أسلمت وجهي إليك وفوضت أمري إليك وألجأت ظهري إليك رغبة ورهبة إليك لا ملجأ ولا منجا منك إلا إليك آمنت بكتابك الذي أنزلت وبنبيك الذي أرسلت فإن مت من ليلتك فأنت على الفطرة واجعلهن آخر ما تتكلم به» .
(صحيح) … [حم ق 3] عن البراء. رياض الصالحين 1470)

Narrated Al-Bara ‘bin `Azib: The Prophet said to me, Whenever you go to bed perform ablution like that for the prayer, lie or your right side and say,

Allahumma aslamtu wajhi ilaika, wa fauwadtu `Amri ilaika, wa alja’tu Zahri ilaika raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika. La Malja’a wa la manja minka illa ilaika. Allahumma amantu bikitabika-l-ladhi anzalta wa bina-biyika-l ladhi arsalta

(O Allah! I surrender to You and entrust all my affairs to You and depend upon You for Your Blessings both with hope and fear of You. There is no fleeing from You, and there is no place of protection and safety except with You O Allah! I believe in Your Book (the Qur’an) which You have revealed and in Your Prophet (Muhammad) whom You have sent).

Then if you die on that very night, you will die with faith (i.e. or the religion of Islam). Let the aforesaid words be your last utterance (before sleep).

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 4/285, 290, 300, al-Bukhari 247 and 7488, Muslim 2710, Abu Dawud 5046, at-Tirmidhi 3394, al-Nasai in Sunan al-Kubra 10613.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-saghir 276.
