Narrated An-Nu’man bin Bashir:
that the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Indeed Allah wrote in a book two thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, and He sent down two Ayat from it to end Surat Al-Baqarah with. If they are recited for three nights in a home, no Shaitan shall come near it.”.

Surah Al-Baqarah 285-286 :
āmana l-rasūlu bimā unzila ilayhi min rabbihi wal-mu’minūna kullun āmana bil-lahi wamalāikatihi wakutubihi warusulihi lā nufarriqu bayna aḥadin min rusulihi waqālū samiʿ’nā wa-aṭaʿnā ghuf’rānaka rabbanā wa-ilayka l-maṣīru
The Messenger (Muhammad SAW) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and so do the believers. Each one believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. They say, “We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers” and they say, “We hear, and we obey. We seek Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all).”
lā yukallifu l-lahu nafsan illā wus’ʿahā lahā mā kasabat wa ʿalayhā mā ik’tasabat
rabbanā lā tuākhidh’nā in nasīnā aw akhṭanā
rabbanā walā taḥmil ʿalaynā is’ran kamā hamaltahu ʿalā alladhīna min qablinā

Allah does not charge a soul beyond its capacity, he will get reward for the good which he has earned, and he will be punished for the evil he has earned.
“Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred.
Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us.
Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.”
