Answer

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Brother in Islaam,

We advise you to perform wudhu before retiring to bed. Once in bed, recite the sunnah du’aas and surahs. Continue to recite azkaar until you fall asleep. If any evil thoughts come to your mind, recite the following:

لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله

There is no might or power except with Allaah.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
