Answer:

 

Sleepy attacks of shaytaan recite quran

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.

 

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

Sahih Muslim Hadith 144 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

When the son of Adam recites the Ayah of Sajdah (from the Glorious Quran) and then falls down in prostration, the Shaytaan goes into seclusion and weeps and says: Alas! Woe unto me! The son of Adam was commanded to prostrate, and he prostrated and Paradise was entitled to him; and I was commanded to prostrate, but I refused and am doomed to Hell.

 

Respected sister in Islam, nothing hurts the accursed enemy of mankind, the evil and rejected Shaytaan, than when a believer does any act or deed which finds acceptance and favor with Allah Subhanah.and it is only expected that the accursed Shaytaan will do whatever is in his power to stop the believer from fulfilling their noble intention in worshipping or obeying the Commands of their Lord Creator. Thus my beloved sister, your reaction that you feel sleepy whenever you intend to recite the Glorious Words of Allah Subhanah are not without reason..for it hurts and pains the accursed and rejected Shaytaan no end when one amongst the believers intends to worship their Lord Creator! The one and only mission and ambition of this accursed enemy of ours, the Shaytaan, is to take as many of the children of Adam as he can into the Hell Fire!

 

Isnt is surprising sister, that one can sit for hours on end and watch a boring movie, or read an uninteresting book, or talk casual or vain talk with friends all night, or play sport, or games, or cards, etc. for hours and hours .. and the thought of sleep does not even enter their mind!....but as soon as one makes intention to recite the Glorious Quran, or pray a few rakahs of nafl prayers, or do a deed or an act which finds favor with Allah Subhanah..boom! . the attack of the Shaytaan appears from nowhere and one gets a feeling of tiredness, laziness, drowsiness, sleep, etc.!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 6:

6 Verily the Shaytaan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents that they may become companions of the Blazing Fire.

 




Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 208:

208 O ye who believe! Enter into Islam whole-heartedly; and follow not the footsteps of The Shaytaan; for he is to you an avowed enemy.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 12-18:

12 (Allah) said: "what prevented thee (O Iblees) from bowing down (to Adam (a.s.)) when I commanded thee?" He (Iblees) said: "I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire and him from clay."

13 (Allah) said: "Get thee down from this: it is not for thee to be arrogant here: get out for thou art of the meanest (of creatures)."

14 He (Iblees) said: "give me respite till the Day they are raised up."

15 (Allah) said: "be thou among those who have respite."

16 He said: "because Thou hast thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them (mankind) on Thy Straight Way.

17 Then will I assault them from before them, and behind them, from their right, and their left: nor wilt Thou find in most of them gratitude (for Thy Favors).

18 (Allah) said: "Get out from this disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee, Hell will I fill with you all!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verses 61-65:

61 Behold! We said to the Angels: "Bow down unto Adam": they bowed down except Iblees: he (Iblees) said "Shall I bow down to one whom Thou didst create from clay?"

62 He (Iblees) said "Seest Thou? This is the one whom Thou hast honored above me! If Thou wilt but respite me to the Day of Judgment I will surely bring his descendants under my sway, all but a few!"

63 Allah said: "Go thy way; if any of them follow thee, verily Hell will be the recompense of you (all); an ample recompense.

64 Lead to destruction those whom thou canst among them with thy (seductive) voice; make assaults on them with thy cavalry and thy infantry; mutually share with them wealth and children; and make promises to them. But the Shaytaan promises them nothing but deceit.

65 As for My servants no authority shalt thou have over them." Enough is thy Lord for a Disposer of affairs.

 

Your Question: what is the best way to recite for greater durations without feeling sleepy.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 98-100:

98 When thou dost read the Qur'an seek Allah's protection from Shaytaan, the rejected one.

99 No authority has he over those who believe and put their trust in their Lord.

100 His authority is over those only who take him as patron and who join partners with Allah.

 

First and foremost sister, whenever you intend to do a good deed and the Shaytaan starts his mischief to stop you from doing what you know is acceptable and meritorious in the Sight of Allah your Lord, immediately seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Shaytaan.that is precisely why, The All-Wise, All-Knowing Lord has Commanded the believers that whenever they intend to recite the Glorious Quran, they should first seek Allahs Protection from the accursed enemy of man, the Shaytaan.for once one has taken refuge in Allah Subhanah, it is expected that their Lord Most Gracious will protect them from the constant attacks of the evil and accursed Shaytaan.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 15 Surah Hijr verses 42-44:

42 (Allah tells the Shaytaan): "For over My servants no authority shalt thou have, except such as put themselves in the wrong and follow thee."

43 And verily Hell is the promised abode for them all!

44 To it are seven Gates: for each of those Gates is (special) class (of sinners assigned).

 

Respected Sister, once you take refuge in Allah from the accursed Shaytaan, make a solemn intention to stand firm and steadfast on fulfilling the noble deed you intend to do for the Pleasure of Allah, and keep your full trust and belief in the Power and the Strength of your Lord Most High, Most Supreme.it is expected that the Shaytaan will be compelled to stop his mischief and his evil whispering and leave you alone for sometime, and search for another person with weak faith who would fall for his charming deceit!

 

We assure you of one thing sister, the evil and accursed enemy of man, the Shaytaan, will neither ever rest nor stop his attacks and evil whisperings to take a believer away from the obedience and worship of their Lord Most High, unless and until the last breath has left our lungs..thus we remind you sister, as we remind ourselves, make absolutely sure you take constant precautions against the Shaytaans evil plots, remain absolutely constant in always seeking refuge in Allah Subhanah, and remain firm and steadfast in the conviction that it is the unconditional obedience and the worship of the Lord Most Supreme Alone which will lead us to the Path of His Mercy and His Grace.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 6:

6 Verily the Shaytaan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents that they may become companions of the Blazing Fire.

 

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
