When Leaving the Home #1

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللّٰهِ ، لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللّٰهِ
Bismi-llāhi tawakkaltu ʿalal-llāh, lā ḥawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāh.
In the Name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah. There is no power (in averting evil) or strength (in attaining good) except through Allah.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever says [the above] when leaving his house will be told: ‘You have been guided, you have been sufficed and you have been protected.’ Then one devil says to another devil: ‘How can you get to a man who has been guided, sufficed and protected?’” (Abū Dāwūd 5095, Tirmidhī 3426)

When Leaving the Home #2

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَضِلَّ أَوْ أُضَلَّ ، أَوْ أَزِلَّ أَوْ أُزَلَّ ، أَوْ أَظْلِمَ أَوْ أُظْلَمَ ، أَوْ أَجْهَلَ أَوْ يُجْهَلَ عَلَيَّ
Allāhumma innī aʿūdhu bika an aḍilla aw uḍalla, aw azilla aw uzalla, aw aẓlima aw uẓlama, aw ajhala aw yujhala ʿalayy.

O Allah, I seek Your protection from misguiding others or being misguided; from erring or others causing me to err; from oppressing others or being oppressed; and from acting ignorantly or others acting ignorantly towards me.

Umm Salamah (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhā) said: “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ never left my house without raising his eyes to the sky and saying [the above]. (Abū Dāwūd 5094, Tirmidhī 3427)

When Entering the Home

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الْمَوْلَجِ ، وَخَيْرَ الْمَخْرَجِ ، بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَلَجْنَا ، وَبِسْمِ اللّٰهِ خَرَجْنَا ، وَعَلَى اللّٰهِ رَبِّنَا تَوَكَّلْنَا
Allāhumma innī as’aluka khayra-l-mawlaj, wa khayra-l-makhraj, bismi-llāhi walajnā, wa bismi-llāhi kharajnā, wa ʿalā-llāhi rabbinā tawakkalnā.
O Allah, I ask You for the best entrance and the best exit. In the Name of Allah we enter, in the Name of Allah we leave, and in Allah our Lord do we trust.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “When a person enters his home, he should say [the above]. Then he should greet his family.” (Abū Dāwūd 5096)
