slept little yeah,but they got better quality of sleep.What time do you sleep? do you sleep immediately after isha?.In germany for example,if you sleep immediately after isha,youd get supreme sleep quality,with 6 hours of sleep its like you slept 12 hours.I saw a video at mercifulservant where the guy said sleep before midnight is as if you sleep double.1 hour is like 2 hours.Lets say max you sleep at 7 at wake up at 2.Fajr is at 6:30.You have 4 hours and a half time for worship.
Ofc there are many others reasons,including all what you said,they were with the prophet saws so thats enough for everything.
But they lived in diff times,they didnt live in post industrial revolution time,where you have to work 8 hours a day min,where you need 2-3 hours for commute,then you need at least another hour at home to prepare for it.11-12 hours of your life are wasted working,and we cant wait for the leave once a year,to feel that sense of freedom.Shaytan is making us trade our time and energy for the minimal wage.We are all slaves of the system of dajjal,we are touched by the dust of ribah,we go out of home and immediately are met with women dressed with provocating clothes,theres big fitnah everywhere.Its like we live in two diff planets,not even the air is the same.
We can never be in the level of sahaba,but we can try our best to be the best of our time.Someone from another period may say the same for us,where did we find all the strengh.
