When a person desires to sleep, he should clean the dust on his bed using a cloth three times and place his right arm under his cheek, then say “Sub’hanAllah” 33 times, “Al-Hamdolillah” 33 times, and “Allahu Akbar” 34 times. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Thereafter, he should recite any of the following Dua’s (Supplications):
