As-Salaam alaikum,
The Holy Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once advised his beloved wife, Sayyada A'isha, may Allah be pleased with her, saying:--

''O A'isha, Before you sleep you should perform 4 deeds:--
(1) You should complete the recital of the Holy Qur'an.
(2) You should make sure that the Prophets intercede for you on the Day of Judgement
(3) You should make sure that the entire Muslim Ummah is happy, and
(4) You should perform the Hajj and Umrah.''

She asked him as to how it was possible to complete all these deeds before going to sleep. The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, smiled and replied:--

''O A'isha, when you read Surah Ikhlas 3 times, then it is as if you have read the entire Qur'an.
When you read the prayer for blessings and peace upon me and all the preceding Prophets [Salaat ala Nabiy wa ala Nabi'eena wal-Mursaleen],
then we will certainly intercede for you on the Day of Judgement.

When you make Du'a for all the Muslims, they will be happy with you.
When you read the following: SUBHANALLAHI WAL HAMDULILLAHI, WALA ILAHA ILLALLAHU WALLAHU AKBAR, then it is as if you have
performed Hajj and Umrah.'' (Durratun Naasiheen, page 89).

We should all adopt this advise of the Holy Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, and be reciting these every night before sleeping.
Best Regards.
