Enliven Your Nights with Recitation of the Qur’an

Quran 28 b

ibn Abū Dunyā related that one of the memorisers of the Qur’ān once fell asleep at night without reciting his daily portion of recitation of the Qur’ān. He then saw someone in a dream reproaching him, saying:

“I am astounded at a body enjoying full health –

            In the prime of youth – sleeping until the break of dawn

While no one is safe from being snatched away by death

            In the darknesses of the night when it spreads.”

(at-Tibyaan fee Aadaab Hamalah al-Qur’aan – Imam an-Nawawi)
