«إذا أخذت مضجعك من الليل فاقرأ {قل يا أيها الكافرون} ثم نم على خاتمتها فإنها براءة من الشرك» .
(حسن) … [حم د ت ك هب] عن نوفل بن معاوية [ن البغوي ابن قانع الضياء] عن جبلة بن حارثة. المشكاة 2161)

It is reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“When you go to bed at night, read (Surah)“ Say: “O you unbelievers…” [1] , and then fall asleep after its completion, for, indeed, it is a defense against polytheism! ” 

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 5/456, Abu Daud 5055, at-Tirmidhi 3403, al-Hakim 3982 and al-Bayhaq’i in Shu’ab al-iman 2520 from the words of Nawfal ibn Mu’awiyah; al-Nasai in Sunan al-Kubra 10636, al-Baghawi, Ibn Kani ‘and ad-Dyya from the words of Jabal ibn Haris.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith good. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-saghir 292.
