Wearing socks while sleeping...

Recommended Posts

Salam Alaikoum...

I know you may think i'm crazy by just reading the title, but seriously speaking, has anyone heard of this? They say that if you were socks while sleeping it could affect your eye vision, as in decreasing it, or something of that sort. How can socks possibly be related to the vision? :blink:

wa/salam

FINALLy someone else heard it besides me..yeah ive heard that too, and i told it to my math class once and they laughed at me :( but anyhew! its true ive even heard a doctor on tv say it, and every person in my class who said "i wear socks when i sleep" wore either contacts or glasses..apparently, while you sleep your body gets heavier or something and the socks tend to put pressure and the pressure goes up and eventually it affects your eye vision. :o crazy talk, i know

ok let me start by laughing my guts out:

:!!!: :!!!: :!!!: :!!!: :!!!: :!!!: :!!!: :!!!:

ok, now that that's done we can get back to the point.

just kidding. ;)

well, thing is that applying pressure on the feet while sleeping could (i don't know for sure) cause eye damage, but nevertheless it has very little to do with wearing socks. i know people who sleep with socks frequently and still have perfect vision.

i myself wrap my balnket around my feet always before sleeping and my eyesight is still fine. i don't know anyone who applies extra pressure to his/her feet before sleeping though, so cant say for sure. however, my point was that socks barely increase the pressure on the feet so i don't really think wearing socks would be too bad.

Okay I have to laugh!!

:!!!: :!!!: :!!!:

Never heard of it.. is it a cultural thing?

I am always told to take my socks off while sleeping b/c it will make my head warm or something like that.

So yeah, i am told to take them off but I am not 100% sure of the reasoning.

Selam alaycom,

I have heard the same thing, but I don't know if it's a cultural thing or it's medically proven. There are some weird beliefs floating around the ME: one that immediately comes to mind is that a baby born in the 8th month will have something wrong with it, that it is better to be born in the end of the 7th. Go figure. Some women here who deliver at the end of the 8th month will lie and say: I've entered the 9th month, just so that nobody will be suspicious about the child's health.

Peace,

Um Ali

Apparantly some people don't agree with this. Some people actually recommend wearing socks to bed. :D

Here is a Chinese Medicine tip:

How to "sock it" to Insomnia

You can get a better night's sleep, by donning a pair of warm socks before slipping into bed for the night. Good circulation, which regulates body temperature and has been linked to falling asleep, is compromised when your feet are cold. If you are uncomfortable wearing socks, cuddle your feet up to a hot water bottle and see how fast you fall asleep!

Here a tip to keep your fingers and toes toasty.

Bump up the bedroom temperature. Metabolism slows during sleep, so it's important to keep your body temperature high, says Dr. Abruzzo. Wearing socks and even mittens to bed will add extra warmth on cold nights.

Leg Pains and Cramps

Wear support hose during the day, and elevate your feet when resting, if possible. Use a heating pad or gentle massage on the back of your thigh to ease sciatica. When a leg cramp hits, straighten your leg and slowly flex your ankle and toes, massage your calf, or soak your leg in hot water. You may be able to prevent night cramps by wearing socks to bed or by pressing your foot against the bed board. If painful cramps persist, ask your doctor about calcium or magnesium supplements.

WaSalaam, Hajar

    • Just because they both have a noha called Badshah Hussain, the nohas are not similar to each other and the reciters cannot be compared. Both have their own style and people like them. 
    • Feel kindness toward your neighbors and friends, and make dua for them. When you see them, smile and be friendly. InShaAllah they will change their attitude toward you. 4th Imam AS - Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends (Supplication - 26) http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s26.htm
    • I don't disagree with anything you're saying, i'm just saying every place has its good and bad, and people often refer to the west as evil all the time, it is not in many ways, like the ways I pointed out. Things like socialist policies in education, health and social security/pensions are very islamic principles. A lot of the West's policies come from judeo-christian values, which aren't very different from Islam. Yes, it is true they have dropped a lot of religious laws now, like allowing abortions and lgbt marriages, but some laws have still stuck around that have roots in abrahamic tradition. No society can claim to be perfect. Iran is an islamic country, but I'm sure a lot of stuff happens underground too, and I'm sure there is still corruption within the government. Ultimately, bro, there is no perfect society, what's important is that you can practice islam freely and to the best of your ability and I think it is possible in many of the western countries, not possible in many of the sunni majority nations. 
    • well, for me personally right now...  I don't know how to prove hadith.  I sincerely honestly dont. Just because a hadith doesn't contradict the Quran doesnt mean its not fabricated.  People intending to twist and corrupt need merit or truths to spin a lie.  One can use something true in the quran like say Umar,   who says I believe in this verse " [verse]" and a good follower of it, but you don't know if he did, for example. It's difficult, and dang near impossible to "follow" and prove those hadiths are true (well, really impossible). I'm just thinking here and presenting my ideas. I would think A hadith that doesn't comtradict the Quran is off to a good start in terms of authenticity.  Reading hadith to understand historical context even if its not authentic actually may be beneficial.  It may explain and connect dots, for understanding why things happened the way they did. Though I've proven (in my personal perspective my long essay of a post) that Muhammad SAW did not err in delivering the message, but may have very well have subjectively  "err'd" in other matters (like when Allah indicates directly that the prophet may be disobeyed by women if they determine his command was not good) (60:12) And then you have 9:50 above, do you think its a good idea to follow any hadiths?  Maybe read them to gain historical understanding but follow them? Eh, its up to you or anyone to make that determination for themselves. I can't judge.   
    • A westernized version of islam? What does that actually mean?  The only interpretation/things I can think of are negative.  Does it mean a version of islam where western culture and values are integrated into it? I do not see the need for that. In the middle east, where you see muslims lacking in any area it is not because they do not apply "good" western values, its because they are applying the bad things of their own culture, meanwhile not caring about what Islam says. Dishonesty, cheating, poor work morale, back talking, not caring for the poor, being unfair, corruption in politics, these are things you might find in the middle east, but they are not because islam is lacking anything, it is because people are not adhering to it, why? Because that would take effort and sincerity. I do not think islam per say is lacking anything and that it needs to change a single inch in any direction. Times change, that is true, but humans does not.
