Two Rak’ahs when Leaving and Entering Your House

April 6, 2020 § Leave a comment


The previous post, now removed, was referring to travelling and not when resident. See Shaikh al-Albaani’s clarification below.

From Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, from the Prophet ﷺ, [who said], “When you leave your house, pray two rak’ahs—they will prevent you from an evil exit. And when you enter your home, pray two rak’ahs—they will prevent you from an evil entrance.”

As-Saheehah, no. 1323.

Al-Albaani: [The questioner says] “I read in As-Saheehah a page where there is a hadith from the Prophet ﷺ where he said, ‘When you leave your house, pray two rak’ahs—they will prevent you from an evil exit. And when you enter your home, pray two rak’ahs—they will prevent you from an evil entrance,” is that when one travels or when resident? And is it to be done constantly?”

The answer is that it seems as though it is when travelling and not when resident and if it is during travelling then naturally it wouldn’t be something that is done constantly.
