This is also one of Satan's weaknesses, he cannot enter a house whose door is closed by mentioning the name of Allah.

Dari Jabir bin ‘Abdillah, Rasulullahshallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersabda,

When it is the cover of the night - or in the evening - restrain your children, for the devils spread out at that time, so when an hour of the night has passed, loosen them, and Close the doors, and mention the name of God, for Satan does not open a closed door.

“If the day begins to get dark, hold your children (to leave the house) because at that time the devil is wandering around. If part of the night has passed, let them. Close the doors and say bismillah, because indeed Satan will not be able to open a closed door." (HR. Bukhari no. 5623 and Muslim no. 2012).

In Fathul Bari it is mentioned,

This is an indication that the order to close is for the benefit of keeping Satan away from mingling with humans.

"The order to close the door is because there is a benefit so that the devil stays away from the house and does not mix with humans."

Imam Nawawi in Sharh Sahih Muslimexplains, "The Prophet sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam has ordered to be safe from the devil's interference. This is why God has determined that a person will be free from such disturbances. Satan cannot open a closed container, neither can a closed teapot. Even the devil cannot open a pint, disturb small children and others if the above reasons are done."

Therefore, in another hadith of Jabir, it is mentioned the benefit of saying the name of Allah when entering the house. From Jabir bin 'Abdillah, he once heard the Prophetsallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam say,

If a man enters his house and mentions God when he enters and when he eats food, Satan says, “There is no place for you to sleep or have dinner.” And when he entered and did not mention God when he entered, Satan said, “Have you spent the night?” And when he does not mention God while eating, he says: Have you spent the night and dinner?

“If someone enters his house and he mentions the name of Allah as he enters it, as well as when he eats, then Satan will say (to his friends), “You have no place to spend the night and there is no food."When he entered his house without mentioning the name of Allah when entering, Satan said (to his friends), "Now you have found a place to spend the night." When he forgot to say the name of Allah while eating, Satan said, "You have a place to stay and a portion of dinner." (HR. Muslim no. 2018).

In essence, Imam Nawawi said that the early hadith we studied showed encouragement to remember Allah in the places mentioned, including other places that have the same meaning. Shafi'iyah scholars even said that it is recommended to mention the name of Allah in every important matter. Likewise, you should praise Allah at the beginning of every important matter based on the famous Hasan hadith.

Only God gives taufik.
