Sleeping position hated a lot by Allah! We have already discussed it on our previous blog. But today we will shed more light on this topic.
This is an incident from the Prophet’s (SAW) life, in which he said. On one occasion, when he saw an individual lying on his stomach on the ground, he came and nudged him with his foot, and when he woke up and looked at the Prophet (SAW), he said this is the method of lying which God Hates.
I know common people who love to sleep on their stomachs, and I remember when I was teaching Islamic Etiquettes in Panama. After the class was completed, the people asked me why it is disliked to sleep on your stomach, and to be honest, I really didn’t have the answer, so I told them, hey, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said Allah hates it, so you better not do it.
Once I was on a flight towards Guyana, and I was reading time magazine. The magazine’s issue was on the lasted development in spinal surgery. The causes of the spinal problems and the number one didn’t sleep on your stomach because when you sleep on your stomach the spin relay on your internal organic the stomach and lungs which are soft which cause the spine to curve and cause the problem so from then, I started to mention this on all of my courses and lectures, see from 1400 years the Muslim who followed the guidance of Islam and The Prophet (SAW) has benefited themselves and those who don’t have harmed them for 1400 years we all Muslim should listen to the guidance of Islam because if we disobey them is the harm in it.
In 1989 I read in a British newspaper that medical scientists are studying a particular illness which is causing children their lives, small children aged 1 to 3 years that they deny in sleep, so the scientist gathered information from the parents whose children have died, and the came with shocking results that the babies are dying because of Sleeping Position on their stomach, so they print the news on the front page about not letting your babies sleep on their stomach.
