Switching Off Lights During Night - Prevents Satan?

Recommended Posts

As salam alaikum,

 

Need to know any authentic sources that by switching off lights during night, satan can be prevented from enter home? Anything like that? 

Jazakallah Khair.

wa alykom assalam wa rahmat Allah, brother

 

I believe, it's not about light nor Satan but fire (as far as i know lighting was not so common at these times but through fire). i found many Hadeeths about putting of the fire before sleeping to prevent accedent fires, 

 

(حديث مرفوع) حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ بْنُ عُيَيْنَةَ ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ ، عَنْ سَالِمٍ ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، أَنّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ، قَالَ : " لا تَتْرُكُوا النَّارَ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ حِينَ تَنَامُونَ " .
it tells " don't leave "fire" at homes while you are sleeping"

(حديث مرفوع) حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ نُمَيْرٍ ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ ، عَنْ أَبِي الزُّبَيْرِ ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ ، قَالَ : " أَمَرَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَنَهَانَا ، فَأَمَرَنَا أَنْ نُطْفِئَ سُرُجَنَا " .
".......the prophet (pbuh) ordered us to put off our light (candle like) .....
