Sleeping Position According To Islam by Mockaroo: 1:21pm On Nov 07, 2017
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) ordered us not to sleep on our bellies (face down).

Abu Dawood reported from Yaesh that Takhfa al-Ghafari said:

“My father said ‘while I was lying on my belly in the mosque I felt a person moving me with his foot saying: “Allah hates this way of lying down” I looked up to find out that (the man who was speaking) was the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)”.

Al-Tirmizi also reported from Abu Hurairah that he said:

“The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) saw a man lying on his belly he said to him: Allah does not like this form of lying down” . Ibn Majah reported from Abu Zar : “This is the way in which the dwellers of Hell-fire lie down”.

Ibn al-Qayyim said while talking about the medicine of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.): ‘The best is to lie on the right side as this makes the food rest more comfortably in the stomach because the latter is inclined to the left. Then it is better to change to the left side as this makes the food get digested more quickly. But most sleeping should be on the right side… And it is bad to sleep on the back. But it is worse to sleep face down on the belly’.

SCIENTIFIC FACTS:

Today medical science tells us that it is healthy sleeping position to sleep on your back or on your right side which is the Islamic way of sleeping and we (Muslims) were told this 1400yrs ago by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw). Sleeping on the right side does not let the weight of stomach & intestine to suppress heart, hence blood circulation is not affected. It’s best to sleep on your right side, because your liver is your heaviest organ and if you sleep on your left then it will cause you discomfort, because it’s squishing your stomach.


Researchers now know that sleeping on the stomach raises the risk of SIDS (sudden Infant death syndrome) sevenfold. That realization led to “Back to Sleep” campaigns in Britain in 1991 and in the United States in 1994. Between 1970 and the unveiling of that advice, 11,000 British infants — who might have survived if sleeping on the back had been the norm — died of SIDS. In the United States, Europe and Australia, “at least 50,000 excess deaths were attributable to harmful health advice,” Gilbert and her colleagues wrote.

It has been experienced that , vagal maneuvers ((neurology) of or sleep-3relating to the vagus nerve ) have worked sometimes to terminate the AF (The nerve system which could damage the heart beat rhythm) but usually not on the first try. Light exercise can also terminate AF, particularly when it has lasted into the morning or early afternoon. Several posts to the atrial fibrillation message board have also reported that sleeping on the left side can trigger The nerve system which could damage the heart beat rhythm during the night and it has been found that situation can be avoided by sleeping on the right side. It can also help to elevate the head and upper part of the body when sleeping, either by using several pillows or a bed that can be adjusted to do this.

Sleeping on the right/left side with the hand under the cheek:
1. organizes the heart pulses.
2. permits the sleeper/asleep person to breath in very natural, perfect way.

But who sleeps on his tummy, suffers the following:
1. temporal dyspepsia
2. his neck’s vertebra get harmed and will have pains on the long term.

Today science tells us that it is best to sleep on the right side or back and not on the left side and stomach. Glory be to Allah, how did the glorious Prophet Muhammad know this back in his time? Truly he is a great example for us all to follow (Surah 33:21) for all time.

Arab God, Allah must be a very controlling God to be in the every business of Muslims - how to sleep, how to shat, how to fooook, how to menstruate, how to fight others in his name. If s/he’s so much into controlling what he created then why did he give them intelligence & free will?


Thankfully, there are so many other philosophical & spiritual belief systems spread all over the world, else we would all be trapped in the ropes of Islam where we have to function according to how the God of Arabs want us to live.


FYI: there are a whole lot of humans whose only way of finding any sleep is to lay on their stomach and nothing has happened to them.

I believe that there no God but Jehovah.
I believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and he died and resurrected to cleanse me from sins
I believe that Christianity is not a religion, it is the pulsating life of Christ in a human body
Yes, I'm Christian and believe all of the above

Since I cant comment without being forced to declare that I'm a muslim, I'll set the record straight instead.

Back to the topic, it's interesting. I never knew the cons of sleeping face down. Time to do some research

Quite informative. Jazzakallah.

After all these sleeping positions them go wake up still go BOMB people undecided

I dont understand what you mean tho. Do people not sing and dance in churches and still go and commit heinous crimes. The message is for us to learn. Its not every muslim who sleeps according to the sunnah, then wakes to go off and bomp people.

And there are tons and tons of xtians who go against the teachings of christianity yet nothing has happened to them. This is the reason why there is a judgement day for all.

For the records "I'm not a Moslem and would never be"

I think Mohammed have a chronic control syndrome

And most Islam Followers are more like Zombies.

Why quote shabby scientific works to back up a malicious lie when if otherwise, Moslems would quickly reject other scientific works that does not aligned With their delusions. That's hypocritical to say the least.

Finally Think all religious folks needs to be rehabilitated because religion in itself is a mentally dysfunctional practice..

An order from a Sheepfool religion

1. And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the Lord thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.
Deuteronomy 17:12 KJV
http://bible.com/1/deu.17.12.KJV
(Did God ask anyone to kill them?)

2. Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
Exodus 22:18 KJV
http://bible.com/1/exo.22.18.KJV
(Maybe you're a witch)

3. Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known;
Deuteronomy 13:13 KJV
http://bible.com/1/deu.13.13.KJV
(Where did you see kill?)

4.If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.
Exodus 22:17 KJV
http://bible.com/1/exo.22.17.KJV
(Where did you see kill?)

5. If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

(Death too right?)


Conclusion: Be confusing yourself OK? Religion of piss

Endnote: Those rules where before the coming of Jesus Christ, the New Testament describe the true Christianity.

I laugh when I read this nonsense.

Don't pastors use Malachi to collect tithe?
Don't pastors tell their memebers to use Pslam to pray?
Don't pastors quote Proverbs?
Didn't Jesus in Mathew 5:18 talk about about nothing on Earth passing away until the law is accomplished.
Didnt God in Exodus 20:4-5 warn people not to make any carved image of anything on Earth or in heaven and worship it as it's related to idolatry? Don't Christians carve the image of Jesus and it's worshipped.

And more and more

Look in the miror my friend, most Christians are hell bound.
