The importance of having a nap

Sleeping is one of God's Miracles, but why did our Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) tell us to take a nap during day? Is there any scientific reason for that?….

Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) told us to take a midday nap as he Said: "Nap as Satans do not nap." Narrated by El-Tabarany.

A new scientific research has proved that napping during work reduces the possibilities of having serious heart problems that may be deadly.

Midday napping in office benefits heart and reduces exhaustion and stress since working is the main cause of exhaustion, researchers said.

Sleeping during day is necessary for man as sleeping at night isn't enough. Not only that, but it may be harmful if it continued for a long period of time, researchers said in an other research.

That's why doctors advise people to wake up at night and do some activities and not to sleep for along time as it harms the heart.

Therefore, let's contemplate the holy Verse that tells us about the miracle of sleeping at day and night. Allah says in the Quran: 

And of HIS Signs is your sleep by night, and by day, your seeking of HIS bounty. In that, surely, are Signs for a people who would listen."(Quran 30:23).
