    Yawning

    Report bad ads?

    I prayed Fajr salah on time last night. Now I have been yawning a few times during the day. Is this common ? Would I gradually get used to waking up for fajr salah and my yawning during the day would decrease ? Please advise. Thankyou.

    Re: Yawning



    Did you feel sleepy when you were yawning?

    In Ramadan our sleeping time at night usually reduced because we must wake up earlier to prepare food and suhoor. Of course it can make us feel sleepy at the day.

    Re: Yawning

    I did not feel sleepy when yawning. However I have yawned several times throughout the day. Hence I am considering performing fajr salah qaza after sunrise so I will not feel tired during the day. Any thoughts ?

    Re: Yawning

    From wikipedia:

    Yawning is commonly associated with tiredness, stress, overwork, lack of stimulation and boredom, though recent studies show it may be linked to the cooling of the brain.
    No problems brother. You just cool your brain.

    Re: Yawning

    Remind me, have you only recently become a Muslim, Alex?

    When I fasted and prayed during Ramadan a couple of years back, I remember feeling terribly tired. The killer for me was getting up before sunrise to have breakfast and then trying to go back to sleep for a couple of hours before work ... and I just couldn't get back to sleep.
    In fact, I found the lack of sleep much harder than the fasting itself.

    But it occurred to me that 'seasoned' Muslims go through the annual cycle of praying and therefore become gradually used to the earlier mornings.

    Stick with it and your body will hopefully adjust.

    Re: Yawning




    If you feel tired after praying Fajr, then you can go back to sleep after praying. But it is better to stay awake and remain in Zikr at least until sunrise after praying Fajr.

    You will feel tired and sleepy for a few days then you will get used to it . Some of the scientific studies suggest that sleeping 8 hours continuously is not natural and it is better to have a break in between.

    Re: Yawning

    Yes I can. Although to be honest I would find it difficult to sleep during the day.

    Re: Yawning





    just got an article by mail .





    Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

    As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu

    {In the name of Allah, praise be to Allah, and may His peace and blessings be upon His messenger

    { Peace be upon you, and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings}



    Who is Behind all this Yawning ...


    By Asma bint Shameem



    Have you ever noticed that as soon we stand up for prayer, want to read the Quraan, or some other act of worship, we suddenly get this irrepressible urge to start yawning? And it’s not like it is our bedtime either! It’s the middle of the day, we were fine a few minutes ago and now, all of a sudden, we get this irresistible desire to yawn. Why is that?

    That is because yawning comes from the Shaytaan.

    The Prophet (pbuh) said:
    "Yawning is from Shaytaan, so if any of you feels the urge to yawn, let him resist it as much as he can." (Muslim)

    In another hadeeth he (pbuh) said:
    Yawning comes from the Shaytaan, so if one of you feels the urge to yawn, let him suppress it as much as he can, for if one of you says ‘haa’ (the sound made when yawning), the Shaytaan laughs.” (Bukhaari, Muslim).


    The Ulama said, explaining the concept of yawning: “Yawning is attributed to the Shaytaan in the sense that he approves of it and wants it to happen, i.e., the Shaytaan likes to see a man yawning. Also, every makrooh action is attributed to the Shaytaan in Islam because he is the means behind it. Yawning is caused by a full stomach and leads to laziness, and that is by the means of the Shaytaan.”

    In other words, the Shaytaan wants to make us lazy, especially when it comes to worshipping Allaah, and so he distracts us from prayer, worship, etc. by making us yawn. And, of course, that pleases him.


    The Prophet (pbuh) also said:
    "Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning….." (Bukhaari)


    "If any of you yawns, let him cover his mouth lest the Shaytaan enter." (Abu Dawud)

    "When one of you yawns, he should keep his mouth shut with the help of his hand, for it is the devil that enters therein.” (Muslim)


    Now, I know some of us ‘educated’ ones out there will argue…. “But, yawning is due to lack of oxygen in the brain” or something like that.
    To them I say….“It doesn’t matter whether there is lack of oxygen or surplus of oxygen or whatever. There is one thing that has to be CRYSTAL CLEAR in the mind of the Muslim and that is…. If the Prophet (pbuh) said that yawning is from the Shaytaan, then yawning is from the Shaytaan and that is the end of the matter, no matter what science or anyone else says!



    To minimize yawning during prayer or other worship

    1. Start your prayer when you are energetic and active

    2. Don’t delay Isha prayer too late when you know you will tend to be lazy and sleepy

    3. Remember that the Shaytaan is your enemy so regard him as such, and try to resist him as much as you can

    4. Ask Allaah to protect you against yawning and distraction in your prayer or worship

    5. Focus on the meanings of what you are reciting or saying

    6. Renew your wudu to help you ‘wake up’ before every Salaah or act of worship

    7. Also, stop reciting until the yawning has ended, or else you may distort the recitation with the yawning. (Fath al-Baari)

    8. And, don’t eat too much, since overfilling the stomach leads to heaviness and lethargy

    Al-Nawawi said: “Yawning is attributed to the Shaytaan because it calls to desires, as it is caused by heaviness of the body and lassitude and fullness. What it means is: beware of the causes that lead to that, which is…eating too much.”


    9. If you DO end up yawning, make sure to cover your mouth and, DON’T make the ‘haa’ sound associated with yawning. Surely, you dont want the Shaytaan laughing at you!

    Remember, don’t disregard yawning as a trivial matter as there are no trivial matters when it comes to our deen and following the instructions of the Prophet


    Yawning
