Sleeping on the floor

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: A Hindu worker had come into my room. He then asked why I sleep on the floor despite having a normal bed. I was unsure how to explain, so I just replied that ‘I find it more comfortable’. Was this the right thing to say? I sleep on the floor so that I can face the Qiblah whilst sleeping.


A: Yes.

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