Sleepless nights…

If you toss and turn during the night without being able to fall asleep, do the following:

1. Remember Allah with Prophetic supplications or supplications taken from the Qur’an:

 Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.  (Qur’an 13: 28)

2. Avoid sleeping during the day, except when you have no other choice:

And have made the day for livelihood.   (Qur’an 78: 11)

3. Read or write until sleep comes:

And say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge. ‘(Qur’an 20: 114)

4. Work hard during the day:

And [it is He no] makes the day Nushur [i.e. getting up and going about here and there for daily work, etc., after one’s sleep at night or like resurrection after one’s death]. (Qur’an 25: 47)

5. Consume stimulants such as coffee and tea in moderation.
