Answer:


 

Sleeping on stomach

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.

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4718 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

When Allah's Messenger (saws) saw a man lying on his stomach he said, "This is a method of lying down which Allah does not like."

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4731 Narrated by Abu Dharr

The Prophet (saws) came upon him when he was lying on his stomach, jerked him with his foot and said, "Jundub, only those who go to Hell (the Shayateen) lie like this!"

Sleeping or lieing on the stomach is a detestable act in the sight of Allah, for it is the position in which the Shaytaan lies and sleeps; and Allah and His Messenger (saws) have prohibited the believers to do anything which would emulate the Shaytaan.

 

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

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
