Hudhaifah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) lay down for sleep at
night, he would place his (right) hand under his (right) cheek and supplicate:
"Bismika Allahumma amutu wa ahya
[O Allah, with Your Name will I die and live (wake up)].''
And when he woke up, he would supplicate: "
lillahil-ladhi ahyana ba`da ma amatana, wa ilaihin-nushur (All praise is due to Allah, Who has brought us back to
life after He has caused us to die, and to Him is the return).''
In this prayer of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) the state of sleep is associated with death, while the
state of being awake is associated with life. Furthermore, it conjures up the vision of Doomsday. However, to recite
these prayers prior to going to sleep and on getting up was the practice of Messenger of Allah (PBUH).

Ya`ish bin Tikhfah Al-Ghifari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: My father said: I was lying down on
my belly in the mosque when someone shook me with his foot and said,
"Lying down this way is disapproved by

[Abu Dawud].
To sleep in prone position is extremely repugnant and Messenger of Allah (PBUH) has forbidden it.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Whoever sits in a
place where he does not remember Allah (SWT), he will suffer loss and incur displeasure of Allah; and whoever lies
down (to sleep) in a place where he does not remember Allah, he will suffer sorrow and incur displeasure of Allah.''
[Abu Dawud].
In the light of this Hadith, remembrance of Allah is commendable everywhere. Indifference to it
doubtless incurs Divine wrath.
