Sunnah 59: Have a nap after Jumu’ah

June 18, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Sahl (ra) narrated: We used to offer the Jumua prayer with the Prophet and then take the afternoon nap. [Bukhari]

The afternoon nap is called “qaylulah”- linguists have said that it means a “short afternoon rest”. It should last between 15 and 40 minutes, as more than 40 minutes will make the body go into deep sleep mode and thus make the person tired as opposed to energized. Even if a person cannot sleep for 30 minutes, he can still lie down and rest.
