Hadith Shayatin: Devils come out to roam when darkness settles

Jabir ibn Abdullah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When the night lowers its wings or you enter evening, hold back your children, for the devils spread out at that time. When a while has passed, you may let them go. Lock your doors and mention the name of Allah, for Satan cannot open a locked door. Tie your water-skins and mention the name of Allah, cover your vessels with whatever you have and mention the name of Allah, and put out your lamps.

عَنْ جَابِر بْن عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا كَانَ جُنْحُ اللَّيْلِ أَوْ أَمْسَيْتُمْ فَكُفُّوا صِبْيَانَكُمْ فَإِنَّ الشَّيَاطِينَ تَنْتَشِرُ حِينَئِذٍ فَإِذَا ذَهَبَ سَاعَةٌ مِنْ اللَّيْلِ فَحُلُّوهُمْ فَأَغْلِقُوا الْأَبْوَابَ وَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَا يَفْتَحُ بَابًا مُغْلَقًا وَأَوْكُوا قِرَبَكُمْ وَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ وَخَمِّرُوا آنِيَتَكُمْ وَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ وَلَوْ أَنْ تَعْرُضُوا عَلَيْهَا شَيْئًا وَأَطْفِئُوا مَصَابِيحَكُمْ
