أَمْسَيْنَا وَأَمْسَى الْمُلْكُ لِلهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلهِ ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ ولَهُ الْحَمْدُ ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ،

رَبِّ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا فِي هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ وَخَيْرَ مَا بَعْدَهَا ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ وَشَرِّ مَا بَعْدَهَا ،

رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْكَسَلِ وَسُوءِ الْكِبَرِ ، رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذَابٍ فِي النَّارِ وَعَذَابٍ فِي الْقَبْرِ
Translation
We have reached the evening and at this very time unto Allah belongs all sovereignty, and all praise is for Allah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is capable of all things.

My Lord, I ask You for the good of this night and the good of what follows it and I seek refuge with You from the evil of this night and the evil of what follows it.

My Lord, I seek refuge with You from laziness and senility. My Lord, I seek refuge with You from torment in the Fire and the torment in the grave.

Note: (al-masa-a) translated as evening refers to the time after the Asr prayer until the sun sets, however some scholars say that it refers to the time after the sun sets and onwards.

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ ، خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ ، أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ بِذَنْبِي ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ
Translation
The Prophet said "The master supplication (most superior way) to ask for forgiveness from Allah is:

"O Allah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You, You created me and I am Your slave and I abide to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge with You from the evil of which I have committed. I acknowledge Your favour upon me and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me, for verily none can forgive sin except You."

(The prophet then) said: "If somebody says it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody says it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise."

بِسْمِ اللهِ
Translation
“In the name of Allah.”

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: When night falls (i.e. Al-Maghrib);

1. Restrain your children (from going out) because at such time the devils spread about. After a period of time has passed, let them be.
2. Shut your doors and mention Allah’s name, for verily the devil does not open a shut door.
3. Tie up your water-skins and mention Allah’s name.
4. Cover your vessels (food) with anything and mention Allah’s name.
5. And put out your lamps.
