Sunnah 124: Don’t sleep on your stomach

October 4, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) saw one the companions asleep on his stomach and nudged him with his foot saying “Sit up. This is the position of the people of hell” [Nisa’i]

Please note that it is not haraam (forbidden) to sleep on one’s stomach, but is considered improper. [Source: Sunnipath]

However, if one has to sleep on his stomach due to an illness, then it is ok to do so. [Source: islamqa]
