Hmmmmmm....

I sleep long hours :D

It depends though :) . Sometimes I hit the sack at 9pm and then wake up at 4:30am.

Or sometimes , usually when i'm studying or doing research etc. I sleep at 12 or 1 am and then wake up at 4:30 also :)

And I dont take naps duringst the day........How many take naps? Because it's sunnah to take a nap after Dhuhr time.

Dear brother,
Sleeping long hours is not good for good people. About 8 hours' time is wasted during our sleep. Avarage man lives about 70 years. It means that we waste 20-25 years for nothing. We should sleep shorter and work longer. Fi amanillah.

No the sunnah is to sleep after Dhuhr Salaat. And it's called Qayloolah.Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Take a nap, for the shayaateen do not take naps.”Reported by al-Tabaraani.

I agree with the other brother that sleeping long hours is just a waste of time. We should try to spend more of that time in Qiyaam and such Ibaadah dont you think :)

I don't sleep long hours. First of all, I just can't.:) I tried when I was younger, but I always wake up automatically after 5 hours and most of the times it's impossible to get back to sleep.

I do not regret this fact, because as earlier said, sleep is a waste of time. Those are all hours that we could also gather knowledge... Insha'Allah I can continue doing this forever...

Average 8 hrs. But it happens a lot that it becomes just 6 hrs.
On weekends though 10 hrs or more. :D
But this is something I'm used to do, so if you try to sleep like 11 hrs on the weekends, when your normal is just 8, you'll probably feel very tired. Yes, tired.

Wow we have some heavy sleepers here!! :eek:

I see lots of you peoples sleep laaaate on weekends.....For me it's just the opposite :-\
But alhamdulillah it's all good. I think it's good that my father trained us kids not to sleep after fajr. Instead we just do our Qur'an,islamic studies etc.

And then if we can, we take a little nap after Dhuhr, but since i'm working I obviously can't do that at my office now can I :D

But lastly, you shouldn't waste so much time sleeping!!

But if I dont sleep enough then I'm less productive during the anyway (I'm one of those people who really needs to have her sleep). So whats the point of waking up early then spending like a few hours trying to wake up? :?

I always feel sleepy whenever I face some problem...I hope this is somekind of help from my Rabb to make me calmer :D .
Ooh I think I sleep too many :cry: especially when Im busy whole days...the tiredness just...exhausted I think.
I remember our scholar syaikh Muhammad bin Sholeh Al Uthaymeen rahimahullah :cry: . It has been narrated by Muhammad ibn ‘Abdil-Jawwaad as-Saawee:

“Once the Shaykh was invited by one of the charity organisations in Jeddah, and the meeting prolonged into the night, close to one o’clock in the morning; and it was not the habit of the Shaykh to remain awake like this. It was noticeable that he was overcome with exhaustion and tiredness and it was evident he needed sleep, so we returned to the house where the Shaykh was staying, and we entered and fell asleep right away.

In the middle of the night, at about 3:30(am), after we had been sleeping for about only two hours – since we fell asleep at about 1:30 – I noticed the sound of the Shaykh reciting in prayer; and this at a time when he was desperately in need of sleep and rest, (yet) he was standing before his Lord praying.”

Subhanallah, where are we compared by shalihin? :cry:

I think thats why my ustadh ever told us that he once had a dream. He said in his dream he met syaikh Al Allamah Abdul aziz bin BAzz and syaikh Uthaymeen rahimahumullah, and then theyre in jannah. And then my ustadh asked them "where is syaikh Albani?" and then one of them said "still in 'iliyyin".

:cry: Surely lot of sleep will give us a great lost, cause in akheerah we will just stun seeing all the muslims who pray qiyam at night accept lot of rewards from Allah and enter jannah from the door of qiyamul lail

Not long enough! But then I have 2 severely hyperactive kids who dont sleep well. If they are awake then I have to be awake to prevent chaos! I dont think I have had an undisturbed nights sleep in 11 years, but if I am really tired I will try and have a nap in the afternoon when they are at school. School holidays at the moment though.......... :exhausted

However hard I try to get to sleep I always fall asleep in tghe hours from 11 - 1.. I dunno why. Today I'll try to get to sleep as soon as possible, after Taraweeh. I have school tomorrow:(. Make Dua for me.. that I get through the boring hours of school. And InshAllah I will be fasting!(Last year my parents said I was to small to fast so I onley kept about 15, this year InshAllah I'll be keeping All of them.) I'm really looking forward to Ramadhan.

To feel good I need atleast 8 hours of sleep, if I sleep more than 13 hours then it will make me tired for the rest of the day.

If i sleep 5 hours or less, I will be very moody and slow to react all day.
