Duas when Experiencing Bad Dreams

Written by

If you experience fear during the night due to seeing bad dreams, recite the following duas:

Dua One

أَعُوْذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّاتِ الَّتِيْ لَا يُجَاوِزُهُنَّ بَرٌّ وَلَا فَاجِرٌ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ وَمَا يَعْرُجُ فِيْهَا وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَا ذَرَأَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا يَخْرُجُ مِنْهَا وَمِنْ شَرِّ فِتَنِ اللَّيْلِ وَفِتَنِ النَّهَارِ وَمِنْ شَرِّ طَوَارِقِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ إلَّا طَارِقًا يَطْرُقُ بِخَيْرٍ يَا رَحْمٰنْ

I seek protection in the complete words of Allah Ta‘ala, which neither a pious person nor a sinner can surpass; from the evil of that which descends from the sky and that which ascends in it, and from the evil of that which He created in the earth and that which comes out of it, and from the evil of the trials of the night and the trials of the day, and from the evil of those creations that come out during the night and day, except for those that come with good, O the Most Merciful.

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]
