Q: How much sleep should a 8 year old child becoming hafiz have? Even in general if a child is not becoming hafiz how much sleep should they have? Does Islam say anything into how many hours we should sleep also as adults?
Adults require between 7 to 8 hours.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
