  • when you can't sleep what do you do??

    :salams:

    Okay, right now it is 12:46 am and i am not even tired ! I don't want bags under my eyes but then i will still be awake in bed :(

    What do you do when you feel so awake? I heard something about drinking milk but i don't feel like that now :P

    The Prophet (saw) said, Verily, the knots of Islam will be undone one by one. Whenever one knot is lost, then the people grabbed onto the one which came after it. The first of these knots will be ruling and the last will be the salah.[1]

    The author of Sitoon as-Sultaniyah says about this Hadith: “It was the Prophet who tied together the knots of Islam, including the uppermost knot of ruling after he established the Islamic state…As mentioned by Imam Mawardi the leadership has been proscribed as the succession of the Prophet in protecting the deen and governing the societal affairs. In this respect – Imam Baidawi mentioned that the Imama/Khalifah is the succession from the Prophet in the establishment of the laws of the Shari’ah. So without the Imam the laws lie unapplied and the territory is not protected effectively. The hadith indicates that it is the uppermost knot that keeps the subsequent knots safe from being untied. This is since it is the ruler that is responsible to apply Islam in its entirety, to implement the limits proscribed by Allah and to protect the society. Imam Ahmed mentioned without an Imam (for the Muslims as their leader) there would be fitna, and the destruction of the symbols of Islam ending with the Prayer is a great fitna.[2]

    assalamu alaykum

    i count sheep lol just joking, sometimes i cant get to sleep till 4am, best thing, do lots of dhikr, remember Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala and insha Allah you'll be able to go to sleep.

    i never go to sleep until i actually feel tired (usually drags on till about 3/4/5 am) because i hate lying in bed thinking why cant i sleep! worse feeling ever!

                    it is 2:30 am !!! counting sheep is boring , it involves maths.

                    Eating, no way, i will keep the fat stored in me during the night and i am not moving then!

                    Reading i could do ... hmmm

                      Read this beautiful du'aa . Insha Allah, you will be able to fall asleep.

                      " Allahumma gaaratin najoomu wa hada'atil uyoonu wa anta hayyun qayyoomu laa ta' khuzuka sinathunv walaa naum Ya hayyu Ya Qayyoomu Ahdii layli wa anim ayni "

                      (Oh Allah ! The stars have disappeared and the eyes (of people) have sunken (into deep slumber), but You are the Everlasting and Self-Subsisting Eternal One. No sleep nor slumber can seize You. O Everlasting and Eternal ! Bless my night with peace and my eyes with sleep)

                            I pray 2 rakah until I get tired. Unfortunately, I fall asleep very easily for the most part.
