Sleep between asr magrib.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Asalaam Alaikum Brother,
a student asked me the ruling about sleeping after asr prayers. She had asked that if I`m very tiered and I`m on duty the rest of the day,can I sleep during asr and maghrib. What are the authentic ahadith ragarding this mattter?

Sleep between asr magrib
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Abu Barza related that the Prophet (saws) loved to delay the night (Isha) prayer, and he (saws) hated sleeping before it and talking or discussions after it."
Related by Bukhari and Muslim.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) discouraged and forbade the believers to choose to sleep between the magrib and isha prayers; but to the best of our knowledge there is no restriction in Shariah if one wishes to sleep between asr and magrib times, if one wishes to do so.
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,
