However, if he sees a bad dream, then one should regard such a dream to be from the side of Shaytaan, and he should seek the protection of Allah Ta‘ala from its evil and he should not mention such a dream to anyone, the evil of such a dream will not cause him any harm.”

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ قَيِّمُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ لَكَ مُلْكُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ اَنْتَ نُورُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ الْحَقُّ وَوَعْدُكَ الْحَقُّ وَلِقَاؤُكَ حَقٌّ وَقَوْلُكَ حَقٌّ وَالْجَنَّةُ حَقٌّ وَالنَّارُ حَقٌّ وَالنَّبِيُّونَ حَقٌّ وَمُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ حَقٌّ وَالسَّاعَةُ حَقٌّ اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْتُ وَبِكَ خَاصَمْتُ وَإِلَيْكَ حَاكَمْتُ فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

O Allah, all praise belongs to You and You are the sustainer of the heavens and the Earth and whatever is contained within them. All praise belongs to You and to You belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the Earth and whatever is contained within them. All praise belongs to You and You are the noor (i.e. light) of the heavens and the Earth and whatever is contained within them. You are Haqq, Your promises are true and Your meeting is true. Your speech is true, Paradise is true and Hell is true. The messengers are true and Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is true. The last hour is true. O Allah, I have surrendered to You alone. I have Imaan upon You alone. I have placed my trust and reliance upon You alone. It is only towards You that I turn. It is only on account of You (i.e. with Your help) do I dispute (with the kuffaar in proving the truth). It is only towards You do I turn for judgement. Thus forgive my sins, my past sins and my future sins, those sins done in secret and those sins committed openly. You are the first and You are the last. There is none worthy of worship besides You, and there is no power (to do good) nor any ability (to abstain from evil) except with the help of Allah Ta‘ala.

12. Do not sleep unnecessarily after Maghrib.

عن أبي برزة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يكره النوم قبل العشاء والحديث بعدها (صحيح البخاري #568)

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

13. Do not sleep in areas which people use as a walkway as you would cause inconvenience to them and this may become a means of injury being caused to oneself.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا سافرتم في الخصب فأعطوا الإبل حظها من الأرض وإذا سافرتم في السنة فأسرعوا عليها السير وإذا عرستم بالليل فاجتنبوا الطريق فإنها مأوى الهوام بالليل (وفي رواية وإذا عرستم فاجتنبوا الطريق فإنها طرق الدواب ومأوى الهوام بالليل) (صحيح مسلم #1926)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When travelling through green pastures, then give the animal its due right (through stopping at different places in order to allow the animal to graze). When travelling through dry land at the time of drought, then complete the journey quickly (i.e. do not delay your journey by stopping at different places so it does not become difficult upon the animal). During the journey, if you have to stop over to spend the night at a certain place, then ensure that you do not camp in the middle of the road as the road is the right of the animals (of the travellers travelling on the road), and the residing place of insects and poisonous creatures at night (which can cause you harm).”

10. One should not sleep naked, instead one should sleep wearing such clothing that conceals one’s satr.

عن بهز بن حكيم حدثني أبي عن جدي قال : قلت يا رسول الله عوراتنا ما نأتي منها وما نذر قال : احفظ عورتك إلا من زوجتك وما ملكت يمينك قلت : يا رسول الله إذا كان القوم بعضهم في بعض قال : إن استطعت أن لا يرينها أحد فلا يرينها قال : قلت يا رسول الله إذا كان أحدنا خاليا قال : فالله أحق أن يستحى منه من الناس (سنن أبي داود #4019)

Hazrat Bahz bin Hakeem relates from his father, who relates from his grandfather, that he asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), inform us regarding the masaa’il relating to our satr. In which cases we are allowed to expose our satr and in which cases we have to conceal it?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Safeguard your satr, except before your wife and your slave-girl.” I then asked, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), what about in the situation when many people are living together (e.g.in the case where people are living together in a small room and one would need to change one’s clothes etc.)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Ensure that no one ever sees your satr.” I then asked, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), what about the situation when one is in seclusion (i.e. can his satr be exposed e.g. while changing)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Allah Ta‘ala is more worthy that hayaa and modesty be shown before Him than the modesty one exercises before people. ” (i.e. One should have the presence of Allah Ta‘ala all the time in one’s heart and mind and thus feel more ashamed to expose his satr before Allah Ta‘ala (even in seclusion), than the shame one has for people).
