Sheikh, I have a serious issue falling asleep, I had it since childhood. Now, I have started to pray 5 times a day, and sometimes I hold myself awake until fajr time, prays and than go to sleep, but I cant fall asleep and quite often I just lie in my bed and try hard to fall asleep, often after 4-5 hours I fall asleep and than if I wake up again for zuhr prayer I cannot fall asleep again. I mean when I fall asleep once than it is not possible for me to fall asleep again, what is the shari ruling on a person who has a such difficulties sleeping. Can I combine two prayers? Like Zuhr and Asr on permanent basis?
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
Many jurists are of the view that it is permissible to combine two prayers due to sickness. Therefore, if you are sick in a way that you are harmed by waking up and cannot return to sleep, then we hope that you have a concession to combine two prayers until Allah Almighty cures you.
Allah Knows best.
