How to boost energy

Recommended Posts

Assalam aleikum,

For the last few months I've suffered with Insomnia but al hamdulilah recently I have been able to get it under control and am sleeping a lot earlier. The only problem I have is that even if I have a good 8,9 or 10 hours sleep, I really struggle to wake up. Even on days when I can sleep until 9am or 10am, I find it impossible to wake up, and getting up for Fajr at 6am is a real problem. And then for the rest of the day I feel so tired, most days I have to have a nap in the afternoon because I can't stay awake.

Do you any of you have any advice for my situation? Its really affecting not only going to University but my prayers as well.  I need some suggestions of things I can do that can help me to boost my energy and keep me awake during the day.

Thank you in advance. :)

Asalaam O Alaikum dear sister,

Alhamdolilah that your insomnia is now better, however I would recommend for you to think about which changes you incorporated in your routine for this to change. For example, if you are taking some form on medication, could it be side effects from that? Have you been stressed recently? I think maybe if you think about what caused this change, this might help you.

In terms of waking up at particular times, especially for prayers: 

Recitation of Surah al-Kahf [18:110] is good for making a person wake up at a particular time. All that has to be done is to make an intention of the exact time you wish to wake up and then recite this ayah before sleeping.


Surah al-Mursalaat [77]

Keeping this surah, written on deerskin, as a talisman, enables one to reduce the amount of time he sleeps and he will be able to stay awake for a longer time.



Hope that helps! Salaam :)

    • Because your god(self/mind) keeps reminding you of its limits. It keeps you in search of "there is no god, but The God".  
    • As far as I know, in that time Arabs didnt have books similar to the ones we have nowadays. There were not even enough papers so sometimes they wrote on animals' skin and sometimes just used their memory. So kitab can mean something written.
    • Is it true that isis soldiers even killed babies?
    • Remove "knowledge" & "power" from the scene.
    • If you mean about Moses speaking to God (which I probably think this was the story, though never knew the bush was not consumed), then it was a miracle. A miracle is : An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. That is what we call "Tawaqqu' al-mustaqbal" predicting the future, and it is haram/Forbidden to do, and the nice thing is they mostly don't work, unless it was a "wild" guess, as some call it. Though the Prophet (sawa) once predicted future events more than 1 time, and all of them came true, you interested? Again, if the "angels"(which I think you mean) were to appear they wouldn't appear from their own will, God wants them to appear. Again, God is: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. So God can basically break the laws, which he himself created, when he wants, as they don't apply to him.   Though angels in Islam aren't the winged angels, they are some sort of "Spirits" of  unknown nature. The word "Mala'ika" means the "heavenly" ones, or the ones who always obey. So again not the winges creatures like the Christian/Jewish thoughts. Though they could possibly lift themselves through the means/ways of aerodynamics. Only God knows.   This one happened, I think it was by Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a), he basically puts the amputated part, on the other, and joins them together.  I have seen the name "Allah" once through a cloud, not sure if it is going to help though. Well, it is pretty hard to do so.
