    Thumbs up Salah

    Report bad ads?



    Brothers and sisters i am looking for advice with regard to the salah. I live in the UK where the day now is extremly large and the night small.

    I am having problems keeping my religious commitment in regards to Fajr and Isha. After a long and hard day the only thing i can think about is resting. Isha is now at 11:00pm and Fajr at 3:00am.

    What are you brothers and sisters doing in regards to getting up in the morning and staying up at night?

    I am not a coffee drinker but i find if i drink tea late it keeps me up all night and then the following day suffers. Any practical tips?

    Re: Salah

    MashaAllah for asking. You can read 4 rakah fardh, 2 sunnah and 3 witr to shorten your Isha prayer bro. If you wake up at the beginning time of fajr then there are enough hours left to sleep afterwards. I hope that helps.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but can witr can be shortened to one rakah also? Anyone?

    ^Yeh

    Nowadays I usually wake up at the beggining of fajr time and go back to sleep- also if you have time during the day you can take a nap at Dhuhr time as is also sunnah

    Re: Salah



    To answer your question, if you drink coffee or tea at late of the night, then the problem is that you will miss the Fajr prayer and you need to pray that as part of the late prayer that you miss. Also if you do not pray Isha on time or later before midnight, then you probably were going out with your friends or something that is not relative to Islam. That way it is better to drink coffee or tea during the day and going out with your friends at the right time if no prayer is occur during the day.

    Jazak'Allah Khair,

    Sincerely,


    Farzan Khan

    Re: Salah



    Try using a thinner duvet/ blanket for sleeping. If you really are that tired, you will probably fall asleep anyway and the thinner blanket makes it a little easier to get out of bed... because the bed's not as cosy.

    Eat earlier in the evening, makes it easier to sleep almost straight after Isha.

    Most importantly: ask Allah sincerely to make it easier for you.


    May Allah make it easy for me to act on my own advise. ameen

    I can totally understand what you mean. Analysis your personal life if for example you work try and do work which is less strenuous so that you’re able to turn to your lord with an attentive heart. For fajr get the family yo wake you up, set many Alarms and put your trust in Allah. For both of the salaah fight and struggle with your nafs Insha Allah.

    May Allah make it easy for us all to pray on time.

    Re: Salah

    Maybe if you really don't have enough hours of sleep because of this (like If you have to get up early after fadjr for work), then perhaps you can get some sleep during the day? Preferably after zohar, but if that's to hard then maybe after asr or after maghrib. Althoug someone once told me it's bad to sleep between magrib and esha. I don't know and Allah subhana wa ta'ala knows best.

    B.t.w, over here Esha's already at 23:46 :s
