Duas to Attain Peaceful Sleep
  • Question:

    One night I couldn’t sleep because I felt that I am dying. I panicked and was very scared. Since then every night I find it difficult to sleep. I get scared and have scary dreams. Please give me a solution based on Islam and what should I do to get rid of this and go to sleep peacefully every night.


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    We pray for your ease and comfort.

    Our suggestions are the following:
    • Supplicate to Allah to grant you peaceful sleep and protect you from the fears
    • Sleep with wudhu
    • Recite the verse of the throne (ayat al kursi), the Quls and other prophetic supplications prior to sleeping.
    • Do not follow up the evil thoughts. Busy your mind with positive and better thoughts.
    • Recite أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ excessively.
    • Be punctual in doing dhikr, performing prayers and reciting Qur’ān.

    And Allah knows best.
