Question # : 7671


Every night I attempt to sleep according to the Sunnah. However, being a restless sleeper, I can never sleep in one position for too long so I always end up sleeping in a different position. What do you recommend I do at this point?

(Fatwa: 1546/1464=D/1429)


It is sufficient to go to bed according to the Sunnah way and lie down as per the Sunnah. A person is neither answerable for what he does in the state of sleeping nor is it mandatory for him to keep his body only in one position or on one side. Therefore, it is not wrong if one ends up his sleeping in different positions.
