Overcom tiredness and sleeping less

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi


How do you overcome tiredness?

How did saintly people, buzruks and  scholars of the past spend most their time in ibaadat etc. and sleep so few hours in the day, how did they manage?


  1. Get some sleep, but don’t sleep too much.  Don’t do such work which exhausts you.  Work in moderation.
  2. By seeking Allah’s help. He is al-Hayy-ul-Qayyoom – he doesn’t sleep; His angels don’t sleep.  He has the power to give someone the ability to stay awake and do His ibaadat.

This answer was collected from the official website of Sheikh Abdul Raheem Limbada (Hafizahullah) of UK.
