Protection when leaving the house

It was narrated from Anas ibn Maalik that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When a man leaves his house and says, ‘Bismillaah, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allaah wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah (In the name of Allaah, I put my trust in Allaah, and there is no power and not strength except with Allaah), it is said: ‘You have been guided, taken care of and protected,’ and the devils turn away from him. And another devil says to him: ‘What you can do with a man who has been guided, taken care of and protected?’”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3423; Abu Dawood, 5095; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.)
