Reciting the duas before sleeping when sleeping during the day

Q: If a person is sleeping during the day, like after Zohr for example, should one recite Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi, Aayatul Qursi, Surah Iklaas, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas before this sleep and upon waking up? In other words, should sleeping during the day be treated as though one is sleeping at night?


A: Yes. However Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi and Aayatul Kursi should be recited before sleeping at night.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
