Dear Brother / Sister,
It is not good to sleep from the time the sun rises to about forty-five minutes after it. What is essential is to go to bed early and to get up early.
It is necessary no to sleep after performing the morning prayer and to start work after reading the Quran, hadith, tafsir and ilm al-hal. Our Prophet (pbuh) said,
"There is blessing and success in the early hours of the morning."
It is necessary to try to get up before the time for the morning prayer starts, that is, at dawn. It is a blessing to get up at dawn. It is harmful in terms of sustenance also to sleep after the time for the morning prayer up to the time when the sun rises. The following is stated in a hadith:
“To sleep after the morning prayer prevents sustenance.” (Bayhaqi, al-Adab, 1/276; Sharani, Lawaqihul-Anwar, p. 295)
The reason for the increasing inefficiency and failure in recent times must be sought in the light of this hadith.
Unfortunately, television faces man as "the enemy of sleeping early". It is necessary to overcome this violent enemy, to go to bed as early as possible, to get up for tahajjud prayer, then to wake up vigorously for the morning prayer before the sunrise, and then to start work without going to bed again. Our grandfathers and grandmothers, whom we know to be fit, vigorous and hardworking, did like this. When this nice custom ceased to exist, health, abundance and peace disappeared.
