The Shaykh mentioned, meaning that the author mentioned the ḥadīth, ‘The Pen has been lifted for three’, authentic narration that the pens have been lifted for three. And the one that we didn’t mention is the one who sleeps until he wakes up, of course, he doesn’t make it a habit, he puts his alarm on for the morning prayer, and he does his best to get up in the morning prayer, he doesn’t make it a habit to sleep through the prayers, because I remember there is a narration, Allaah protect us and forgive us, the narration is where the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saw in the Night Journey Jibreel (‘alayhis ṣalātu wa salām), when the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was taken up in the Night Journey, the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saw in the hellfire, a person was hit on his head with a rock, and it would roll and it would be picked up and he was hit on the head again with the rock, and it would be picked up again, and would be hit on his head with the rock again, and that will be his punishment.
The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), said ‘O Jibreel, who are they?’ He said, ‘They are the ones who sleep during their prayers.’ Ya’ani they miss their ṣalāh, through sleep; may Allaah protect us.
The matter is serious, the matter is not a light matter, may Allaah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala) forgive us and make us better, make our ṣalāh that which inshaAllaah the best actions which we bring forward, first and foremost, after kalimat-ut-tawḥīd.
So the one who sleeps. But generally, a person sleeps he wakes up, then his prayer has been extended until the time he wakes up; that is out of Allaah’s Mercy, that if you are a person who genuinely tried to get up, and you slept right until you woke up, you just realised, what do you do? First and foremost, the first thing you do, let him blow his nose, after he says his adhkaar of getting up, he blows his nose, because ‘Shaytaan sleeps in the nostrils of one of you, so blow your nose three times when you wake up in the morning.’
Blow your nose three times, because, Shaytaan sleeps in the nostrils. The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said it, we don’t know how, but we believe in it.
Then they differed whether it means just the night time, or also because he may have a nap in the day time, so does it mean day time as well; there is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars, what does ‘yabeet’ mean. Shaykh ‘Ubaid (hafiẓahullāh), his position is that even in the day time, even though, baata, yabeetu, bayaatan, even though it means in the night, but also the same ruling is taken for the day time because sleep is sleep, and so….ya’ani, I can’t remember the exact proof he used but I remember he said that it is also for the daytime. so waking up from a nap or sleep, blowing your nose three times and then going for the wudoo’, and then praying.
Which one do you pray first? The Sunnah or the Fard? When you’re just about to pray now, you’ve missed sunrise, Allaah forbid, so you’re going to pray your ṣalāh, do you pray your sunnah first, or the fard? The tarteeb is the sunnah first and then fard, that’s the tarteeb. But say you have a few minutes left before the sun is about to rise, do you pray your sunnah first or the fard? You pray your fard now, because now you can catch it, because the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) mentioned ‘Whoever catches the Rak’ah before the sunrise, he has caught the prayer.’
What about if you go to the masjid and they are praying the fard and you didn’t pray the sunnah? Some of the Hanafee’s we see them they pray the sunnah while the fard; they miss the rukoo’ and they miss even the prayer, or even they hurry their sunnah. No. ‘There is no prayer except the prayer that is established.’ If there is the fard, the fard.
Ok, now you have prayed your fard with the Imām, but you haven’t prayed your sunnah, when do you pray your sunnah, straight after your fard or after sunrise?
Difference of opinion amongst the Scholars, some of the Scholars say, pray it straight away because Allaah (‘azza wa jal) doesn’t like you to delay your actions, pray your actions, you might die. So pray your actions, bring the actions that are upon you, you might die.
But the best position is what Shaykh Muhammad Bāzmool mentions, that actually after the sunrise, you pray your sunnah’s. Why? Because he said that at the time of the Rasoolullaah (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), first all we have a narration, the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said ‘If you missed your prayer, the sunnah of fajr, pray after sunrise.’ There is a narration where he commanded. But is that a command which is obligatory, which you have to do? Istihbaab. How do we know it is istihbaab? Because another narration came to us where the Prophet (ṣallallāhu alayhi wa sallam), in his presence prayed his sunnah prayer before sunrise, and the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stayed quiet. Showing the sunnah takreeriyyah, the sunnah of acceptance of this action to be allowed, but still the preference stays because of the command, the preference stays.
