Sleeping after fajr

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Sleeping in the morning negatively affects ones Rizq. Does morning refer to the time between subah saadiq and zawaal?


A: It is makrooh for one to sleep after fajr till sunrise unless one has an excuse. It is not makrooh for one to sleep after sunrise.

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

ويكره النوم قبل العشاء والكلام المباح بعدها وبعد طلوع الفجر إلى أدائه ثم لا بأس بمشيه لحاجته وقيل يكره إلى طلوع ذكاء وقيل إلى ارتفاعها فيض (الدر المختار 1/ 381)

ويكره النوم في أول النهار وفيما بين المغرب والعشاء (هندية 376/5)
