Sleeping on the stomach

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is it true that when one sleeps on one’s stomach then shaytan has coitus with him from behind?

Answer

I have not seen this in a Hadith.

However there are other Hadiths that prohibit sleeping in that posture and actually label it as:

a) Disliked by Allah.

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 5001, Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2768 & Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3723)

b) The posture of the inmates of Jahannam.

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3724-3725)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
