Unable to sleep, Recite this Dua
Sleep is an essential component of life. As the human body needs food and water to survive and function properly, the human body also needs proper sleep to survive. Proper sleep allows our body and mind to recharge, leaving us refreshed when we wake. Proper sleep keeps us healthy and protects us from diseases. If the body cannot get proper sleep, it cannot function properly.
In the modern-day world, life is facing a lot of stresses which causes sleepless nights for many people. People lay on the bed waiting to sleep, but they can’t be able to sleep. Islam has a solution for it.
As we know, Islam is a complete code of life. Islam provides a solution to every problem. The last Prophet of Allah taught the sleeping protocols throughout his life.
If one follows these protocols, he can sleep peacefully.
- Go to bed early after offering the evening prayers as soon as possible.
- Do Zikr (Remember Allah) for 5 minutes while lying on the bed.
- Recite Surah Al Mulk if easy.
- Forgive everyone who misbehaved with you in the day.
- Remember your sins, regret them and seek Allah’s protection from them.
- Make your mind to wake up early in the morning for morning prayer.
Dua for the cure of sleep Disturbance
Zayd ibn Thabit (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
I complained to the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) about insomnia that I was suffering from. He said: Recite this
اللَّهُمَّغَارَتِالنُّجُومُوَهَدَأَتِالْعُيُونُوَأَنْتَحَيٌّقَيُّومٌ * لَاتَأْخُذُكَسِنَةٌوَلَانَوْمٌيَاحَيُّيَاقَيُّومُأَهْدِئْلَيْلِيوَأَنِمْعَيْنِي
Say: O Allah, the stars have come out, and eyes have closed, and You are the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists; neither slumber nor sleep overtakes You. O Ever-Living, O Sustainer, bring calm to my night and let my eyes sleep. O Allah, take away from me what I am suffering.
Once Hazrat Khalid bin Walid complained to the prophet, O Messenger of Allah, I cannot sleep at night. The Prophet of Allah said,
When you go to your bed, say:
O Allah, Lord of the seven heavens and what they shade, Lord of the seven earths and what they contain, Lord of the devils and what they misguide, be a protection for me from the evil of all Your creation, lest any of them wrong me or transgress against me. The One who is under Your protection is honoured; may You be glorified and praised, there is no god beside You, there is no god but You.”
If you sleep at night with the recitation of a dua for good sleep, then all your night comes under the safety of the Angels (Farishtas). But before that, you also have to do wudu, and with this help, all your sleep comes under the rewards of the Almighty Allah.
