Sunnats and Aadaab of Sleeping – Part 7

sweet dreams1. 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 (البخاري رقم 568)

Hadhrat Abu Barzah (Radhiallahu 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).

2. 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 (و في رواية وإذا عرستم فاجتنبوا الطريق فإنها طرق الدواب ومأوى الهوام بالليل) (مسلم رقم 1926)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu 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).
