Is there any way duas, actions etc. which will make me stronger so I don’t need so much sleep?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Question

I Usually find i need about 8-10 hours sleep a day, maybe this is through years of being lazy. But now I have a job, I go to madrassah and am trying to pray tahajudd. Is there any way duas, actions etc. which will make me stronger so I don’t need so much sleep? I don’t see how I will be able to get married in this situation

Answer

Six hours is enough for a grown up. Whatever more is due to laziness. Read the last few verses of Surah Kahf before you go to sleep and make intention of rising at a particular time and inshallah Allah will wake you up.

The verses to read are as follows:
(107-110 – Surah Kahf)

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ كَانَتْ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتُ الْفِرْدَوْسِ نُزُلًا
خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا لَا يَبْغُونَ عَنْهَا حِوَلًا
قُل لَّوْ كَانَ الْبَحْرُ مِدَادًا لِّكَلِمَاتِ رَبِّي لَنَفِدَ الْبَحْرُ قَبْلَ أَن تَنفَدَ كَلِمَاتُ رَبِّي وَلَوْ جِئْنَا بِمِثْلِهِ مَدَدًا
قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُكُمْ يُوحَىٰ إِلَيَّ أَنَّمَا إِلَـٰهُكُمْ إِلَـٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۖ فَمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو لِقَاءَ رَبِّهِ فَلْيَعْمَلْ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا وَلَا يُشْرِكْ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِ أَحَدًا
