  • Art of Sleeping in Islam(helping you to wake up in time for Fajr,energizing the day)

    You all have probably heard the old adage : 'Sleep early to wakeup early'. Well, that's not necessarily true. You can even sleep late and wake up early in the morning in time for Fajr if you follow these steps. Sleeping Posture,reciting the ordained Dua & Zikr before sleeping.

    1.do Ablutions /Wudhoo before going to sleep

    2.lie down on the right side


    3.recite the ordained dua' and zikr before going to sleep.

    Basically, the art to better sleep, the Islamic Way, is to perfect your Islamic Sleeping habits that includes sleeping posture and the mental&spiritual preparation for sleep through zikr & dua' .

    Besides that there are ahadith that encourages one to have short naps or siestas esp. in the afternoons. More on that later.

        Salaams. Yes , the Nabi(salallahu alayhiwasalam ) was reported to have slept after Isha but we need to remember he never slept continously till Fajar. Infact there are reports that he used to sleep in intervals during the night , wake up for Tahajud and short nap again. Let me see if i can get ahadith that describe the exact sleeping patterns of the Nabi (salahualayhi wasalam).

            I struggle memorizing the duas. All I do is do wudhu (sometimes) say "In Allah's name I live and die" and then the Kalima. And then 33 times subhanallah, 33 times alhamdulillah, and then 34 times Allahu akhbar. :)
            La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'ala kulli sha'in Qadir
            (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent),'
            Do not say about Allah but Truth.

              ^.Masha'allah. Atleast you do that. There are people who don't even recite half of what you do, before bed.


              Still, it's better to try to do read the complete Surahs and dua' listed in the links, as much as one is able . Compete with yourself. I estimate, it takes about 25 minutes to read all the dua's, zikr and surah , related to sleep. Imagine the rewards, if you can make this a daily routine & habit.

                A short mid-day nap (Qailulah) is a Sunnah.

                The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “Take a short nap, for Devils do not take naps” [Sahih Aljamie. Alalbani 1647].

                So Why Nap? 1.Reduce stress! Siesta-loving persons are more relaxed. They usually score better on stress tests than others who don’t take a shortnap during the day.

                2.The risk of heart disease is shown to be greatly reduced by regular 30 minute naps.

                3.Naps taken about eight hours after you wake have been proved to do much more for you than if you added those twenty minutes onto already adequate nocturnal sleep.

                4.Previous research has shown that short daytime naps improve vigilance and cognitive functions, and are beneficial for memory consolidation.

                5.In particular, a nap as short as 10 min can improve alertness and performance for 2.5-4 hours. (ref: Sleep Med Review,2010,US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, myummah.co.za)

                  The most beneficial of sleep is that which comes when the need for it is greatest. Sleeping at the beginning of the night is better than at the end, and sleeping in the middle of the day is better than sleeping at the beginning or end of the day.

                    Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Safaareeni (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: It is not right to resist sleep a great deal and stay up late often. Resisting and avoiding sleep will lead to other problems such as bad moods, muddled thinking, and exhaustion that prevents one from understanding and working properly, and it can lead to many fatal illnesses.


                    Creation is based on balance and whoever adheres to moderation has achieved all goodness.


                    In al-Adaab al-Kubra, one of the wise men said: Drowsiness takes away reason, but sleep increases it.

                      And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record�
