Sleep nude naked
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.
Question: pls clear my doubt about the sleep naked.
Al-Muwatta Hadith 47.9
Yahya related from Malik from Salama ibn
Safwan ibn Salama az-Zuraqi that Zayd ibn Talha ibn Rukana that the Messenger
of Allah (saws) said: 'Every ‘deen’ has an innate character; and the
(innate) character of Islam is modesty.'
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4006 Narrated by Mu'awiyah ibn Haydah
I asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws), from
whom should we conceal our private parts and to whom can we show?’ The Prophet
(saws) replied: ‘Conceal your private parts from all except from your wife and
from whom your right hands possess.’ I
then asked: ‘O Messenger Allah (saws), (what should we do), if the people are
assembled together?’ He (saws) replied: ‘If it is within your power that no one
looks at it (your private parts), then no one should look at it.’ I then asked:
‘O Messenger of Allah (saws), if one of us is alone, (what should he do)?’ He
(saws) replied: ‘Allah is more entitled than people that bashfulness
should be shown to Him!’
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3115 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: "Avoid
being naked, for with you are those who never leave you (the Angels) except
when you are relieving yourselves and when a man has intercourse with his wife;
so observe modesty before them and honor them."
In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the
Messenger of Allah (saws) it would not be considered permissible and
appropriate for a believer who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day to sleep
or walk about in the nude, except when one goes to the privy or when one
intends to enjoy sexual intercourse with their wife.
Question: …if aperson remove his cloth while sleeping but covering his complete
body either with bedsheet or blanket so that no one can see his body the is it
ok or not?
Beloved brother, because in the state of sleep one has
absolutely no control over their movements, and it is very possible that during
one of their inevitable turns during sleep one may uncover or expose one’s ‘satr’…..thus
it would be best, purest and akin to piety and righteousness if one did not
sleep in the state of nakedness.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only
due to Allah’s 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,
