Sunnats and Aadaab of Sleeping – Part Two

Written by

11. Do not sleep unnecessarily after Maghrib. If you have a need to sleep (e.g. due to illness or extreme tiredness) then get someone to wake up you up for Esha or set an alarm. [1]

Hazrat Abu Barzah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) disliked that a person sleep before Esha (i.e. after Maghrib), and engage in discussions after Esha (in the case where there is no need). [2]

Sunnats and Aadaab of Sleeping – Part One

Written by

1. After the Esha Salaah, do not while away your time in idle conversation. Instead, try to sleep as early as possible so that you may be able to wake up for Tahajjud Salaah and perform your Fajr Salaah on time. However, if there is a valid need to remain awake e.g. participating in a Deeni program, discussing Deeni masaa’il, an important mashwarah, etc. then it will be permissible for you to engage in such discussions after Esha. [1]

Hazrat Abu Barzah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) disliked that a person sleep before Esha, and engage in discussions after Esha (in the case where there is no need). [2]

Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) engaged in discussions after Esha with Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) regarding a matter concerning the Muslims while I was also present.” [3]

Hazrat Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that she had never seen Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sleep before Esha, nor did she see him engage in idle discussions after Esha. He would either engage in the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala after Esha, thereby reaping the rewards of the Hereafter and becoming successful, or he would go to sleep, thereby saving himself (from being engaged in things of no benefit). Hazrat Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) further says, “Engaging in talks after Esha is permissible for three groups of people; for a married couple, a traveller (to assist him in remaining awake and completing the journey) and one who intends performing salaah during the night.” [4]

Sleep is one of the basic needs of every person, just as eating and drinking are basic needs. Allah Ta‘ala makes mention of the great bounty of sleep in the Qur’aan Majeed saying:

وَّ جَعَلۡنَا نَوۡمَکُمۡ سُبَاتًا ۙ﴿۹﴾

And We made sleep a means of rest for you. [1]

Drinking

Written by

There are many sunnats and aadaab (etiquettes) in regard to drinking. Some sunnats and aadaab pertain to the various duas which have been prescribed to be recited before, during and after drinking. Other sunnats and aadaab relate to the manner in which a person should drink.

Apart from this, there are sunnats and aadaab that teach a person the amount of liquid that he should drink at one time in order for him to avoid damaging his health. Hence, drinking in the correct manner is essential, as this will enable one to maintain good health which will assist him in the worship of Allah Ta‘ala.
