Answer:

 

Is it forbidden in Islam to sleep after Asr?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 


Your question: Is it true that it is forbidden in Islam to sleep after Asr prayers?

The Messenger of Allah (saws) advised the believers not to sleep before the Isha prayers. There is absolutely no mention in the authentic narrations of the Messenger of Allah (saws) whereby he guided the believers not to sleep after the Asr prayers. Thus, if one wishes to sleep after his Asr prayers, there is no harm.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.543 Narrated by Abu Barza

Allah's Apostle disliked to sleep before the 'Isha' prayer and to talk after it.

 

It was the Sunnah of the The Messenger of Allah (saws) to take a mid-day nap, especially after the Jumua prayers.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.63 Narrated by Sahl

We used to offer the Jumua prayer with the Prophet (saws) and then take the afternoon nap.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.298 Narrated by Thumama

Anas said, "Um Sulaim used to spread a leather sheet for the Prophet (saws) and he used to take a midday nap on that leather sheet at her home."

 

Your question: Is it true that the angels curses a person on not organizing his/her bed after getting up in the morning? 

There is absolutely no mention in the authentic narrations of the Messenger of Allah (saws) about the angels invoking the curse on a person who does not organize his/her bed in the morning!

 

This curse of the Angels for not making ones bed sounds more like the words of caution from an over-anxious and loving mother, teaching her children their responsibilities or chores!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
