Is working at night not contrary to the verse of the Quran as well as to human nature?

Details of the Question

Since Allah created the night for resting and the daytime for working, is working on a night shift at a hospital not contrary to the verse of the Quran as well as to human nature?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is a general rule or state for daytime to be arranged as working and night to be arranged as resting and sleeping time; one can work at night if it is necessary for individuals or a community; it is permissible to sleep and rest during daytime; there is no verse or hadith which forbids it.
