✦ REVIVE A SUNNAH ⇨ "THINGS TO DO AFTER WAKING UP FROM SLEEP" ✦


1 ➲ Wiping the face with the hand from the effect of sleeping

An Nawawi and Ibn Hajar recommended this act referring to a Hadith narrated by Imam Muslim " .. then the Prophet (PBUH) woke up and sat wiping his face with his hands" [Al Bukharee, The Book of Ablution, Hadith No. 183]

2 ➲ Saying this Du'aa:

الحَمْدُ لله الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ

Alhamdulillahi lazee ahyaanaa b'ada amaatanaa wa ilaihil nushoor ~ "Thanks to Allah Who gave us life after death , and all resurrection will be to Him." [Al Bukharee, The Book of Invocation, Hadith No. 6312]

3 ➲ Using "Siwaak" (a stick taken of the Araak tree (Salvadona Pensica) for the sake of cleaning teeth)

"Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) woke up, even at night; he used the siwaak to brush his teeth" [ Al Bukharee, The Book of Ablution, Hadith No. 245; Muslim, The Book of Purification, Hadith No. 255]

The wisdom behind that is that the sewak flourishes and activates the body and eliminates bad odors.

4 ➲ Snuff Water

When one of you wakes up from sleep, then snuff water three times. For indeed, shaytaan spend the night in the upper part of nose. [ Al Bukharee, The Book of The Beginning of The Creation, Hadith 3295; Muslim, The Book of Purification, Hadith No. 245; The wording is according to Muslim]

5 ➲ Wash both hands three times

When one of you wakes up from sleep, he must not deep his hand into a utensil until he washes it three times. [Muslim, The Book of Purification, Hadith No. 278]
