    Isha Prayers

    Help me out!

    I can't pray Isha on time. I am such a looser... What do I do? What do you guys do? I end up offering my Isha at 2:00-3:00am... before going to bed. I know one can offer the prayers until Azaan-e Fajar but that does not mean one should take undue advantage of everything.

    I have been feeling bad about it for a long time. However, lately I have started feeling sleepy/drowsy at 10:00 and as a consequence, I get to pray early sometimes otherwise as usual, I delay it and so I fall asleep when I am saying my Dua's or during sajda. I feel guilty about it.

    Now, now this isn't an attempt to gain cheap attention but I really need to mend my ways now, otherwise it will be too late. Actually, what has happened quite a few times that my mom got up to drink water and so on finding that the light in my room was n't switched off until 3:00 am... she came over, knocked at my door and found me fast asleep on the prayer mat and at times in halat-e sajda. Obviously she freaked out (must have thought her daughter is dead for God knows how long) and she also thinks that I am doing some wazifa or something....

        ^ wah wah

        mout ka aik di moayan hai
        neend keyoon raat bhar nahi aati

        Aagey aati thi haal-dil pe hansi
        ab kisi baat par nahi aaatii

        Janta hoon sawab taa at-o-zahad
        par tabeyat idhar nahi aaaati

        Kaa bey kis mounh se jaoo gay Ghalib
        Sharam tum ko magar nahi aaati


        Ye main ne nahi kaha Chicha Ghalib keh gai hain

        ohh yeh poetry phorum tu hai nahi.

        Seriously ! there is not much harm in praying Isha prayer late. but not too much late. So try to mend your habit slowly and gradually but dont feel guilty as you are praying

            For me Isha is the most spiritualy rewarding.

            I have Question, is it true, one is not allowed to sleep before Isha?


            Minerva: I too used to find it difficult especially during summer, when the day is so long and the times where stretched so what I used to do is take a nap in the afternoon after zuhr.

              first find out what leads you to do this, eveyday!
              Then find the salution will be easy
              Ask Allah to help u, make a lot of dua.
              Maka a time table & stick with it, praying with Jamah might help.
              Think if I pray late the rewad will be less!


              & further moe this might help u to understand



              Question :


              I am a young Muslim man who believes in Allaah and His Messengers and His Books, praise be to Allaah. But sometimes I feel too lazy to pray. I am looking for a solution and a way to make me not be so lazy. Please note that this is what I want but the tricks of the Shaytaan are too strong.




              Answer :

              Praise be to Allaah.

              If a person truly believes in Allaah, His Messengers and His Books, and believes that prayer is obligatory and is the greatest pillar of Islam after the Shahaadatayn, we cannot imagine that he would neglect to pray or be careless in performing the prayers. Rather he would never feel at ease unless he performs this important ritual regularly.

              The more a person’s faith increases, the more he will be concerned to do that which Allaah has enjoined upon him, and this is also because of his strong faith. Hence the way to make you pray more regularly may be summed up as follows:

              1 – You should believe firmly that prayer is obligatory and that it is the greatest pillar of Islam. You should realize that a stern warning is issued to the one who neglects prayer, and he is a kaafir who is beyond the pale of Islam according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions, based on a great deal of evidence, such as the hadeeth in which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Between a man and shirk and kufr there stands his giving up prayer.” Narrated by Muslim, 82.

              And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The covenant that stands between us and them is prayer; whoever gives it up is a kaafir.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2621; al-Nasaa’i, 463; Ibn Maajah, 1079; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

              2 – You should understand that delaying prayer beyond the time when it is due is a major sin, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
              Then, there has succeeded them a posterity who have given up As‑Salaah (the prayers) [i.e. made their Salaah (prayers) to be lost, either by not offering them or by not offering them perfectly or by not offering them in their proper fixed times] and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell”

              [Maryam 19:59]

              Ibn Mas’ood said concerning al-Ghayy [translated in the verse quoted above as Hell): This is a valley in Hell which is very deep and foul.

              And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

              “So woe unto those performers of Salaah (prayers) (hypocrites),

              5. Those who delay their Salaah (prayer from their stated fixed times)”

              [al-Maa’oon :4,5]


              3 – You should strive to offer the prayers in congregation in the mosque, and not neglect any of them, knowing that praying in congregation in the mosque is obligatory according to the more sound of the two scholarly opinions, based on a great deal of evidence, such as the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Whoever hears the call to prayer and does not respond, his prayer is not valid unless he has an excuse.” Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 793; also by al-Daaraqutni and al-Haakim, who classed it as saheeh; also classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah.

              Muslim (653) narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: A blind man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said: “O Messenger of Allaah, I do not have anyone to guide me to the mosque,” and he asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to give him a dispensation allowing him to pray in his home and he allowed him that, then when he turned away he called him back and said: “Can you hear the call to prayer?’ He said, “Yes.” He said: “Then answer it.”


              4 – There is the hope that if you adhere to that, you will be included among the seven whom Allaah will shade with His shade (on the Day of Resurrection), among whom is “a young man who grew up worshipping his Lord” and “a man whose heart was attached to the mosque”. Al-Bukhaari, 660; Muslim, 1031.

              5 – You will earn the great reward for prayer, especially prayer in congregation. In al-Saheehayn it is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A man’s prayer in congregation is twenty-five times better than his praying in his house or marketplace, because when he does wudoo’ and does it well, then goes out to the mosque, only going there to pray, he does not take a single step but he is raised in status and a sin is erased thereby. When he prays, the angels continue to send blessings upon him so long as he is still in the place where he prayed, (saying), ‘O Allaah, send blessings on him, O Allaah have mercy on him.’ And one of you is still in a state of prayer so long as he is waiting for the prayer.”

              Al-Bukhaari, 647; Muslim, 649.

              Muslim (232) narrated that ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Whoever does wudoo’ for prayer and does wudoo’ well, then walks to (perform) the prescribed prayer, and offers the prayer with the people or with the congregation or in the mosque, Allaah will forgive him his sins.”

              6 – You should read about the virtue of prayer, and the sin of those who are careless or too lazy to pray. We advise you in particular to read the book Al-Salaah, limadha (Prayer – why?) by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ismaa’eel al-Muqaddim; and listen to the lecture, “Limadha la tusalli (Why don’t you pray?) by Shaykh Muhammad Husayn Ya’qoob, as these will be very beneficial for you in sha Allaah.

              7 – You should choose good friends who are keen to pray and pay attention to that, and keep away from those who are the opposite, because a person is influenced by his friends.

              8 – Keep away from sin in all aspects of your life, and adhere to the rulings of sharee’ah in your dealings with others, especially with women, because sin is one of the things that most distract a person from doing acts of worship and increase the Shaytaan’s influence on him.

              We ask Allaah to make us and you among His righteous slaves and those who are close to Him.

              And Allaah knows best.

                now since u cant take out time to pray early, nor can u go to bed early, i suggest u put up a public protest and have God change the ishaa time to meet ur timetable....

                someone's got to compromise somewhere....
                Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

                    woh ik sajda jisay to giraan samjhta hai
                    hazaar sajdoon say bacha laita hai jaan teri

                    Catto, no nooo not during the prayers. Its after that, done during dua sometimes. Hey, ab itna bhi naheen ....

                    IRMughal-- Abhi tak jawab-e-shikwa that I did earlier with God hasn't come; I can't afford to lauch another protest. :--D
                    But serves me right... I am getting a bit embarrassed...Guess what, someone has to learn the art of time management.

                    Thanks Swera

                    AK47, I have never heard of any such thing, that is whether we can sleep before Isha. As for taking a nap in the afternoon, it is difficult for those who work full-time AK.

                    Rehman, You have a point... if you delay the Isha one or sleep late you will ultimatly delay the Fajar ones too.
                    As for the neend... don't ask me. Its after more than a year that I am feeling sleepy...I guess when you reach the saturation point, when you do not have strength left to fight , even with the sleep itself...this is what hapens.

                      That's exactly what I do, however my mind is not at ease with it...I find that until I have prayed Isha, whatever I do is kind of halfhearted as in the back of my mind is always the nagging feeling that I haven't done something...I can't concentrate...So, InshAllah, I am gonna work on performing my prayers on time...

                      I found this on this subject, hope this helps...:

                      • Prayers: Delaying Isha prayers

                      What do you say about a person who is in the habit of delaying his Isha prayer until midnight or later? What if he sometimes falls asleep and then wakes up at 2 or 3 o'clock, or even just before Fajr to offer Isha?

                      All Muslims are aware that prayer is a time-related duty binding on every Muslim, whether man or woman. It must not be delayed until its time range is over. The time of Isha starts normally when the red twilight has disappeared, which is approximately 1.5 hours after sunset. Its time finishes at midnight. According to Islamic rules, midnight is not at 12 o'clock, but the actual middle point between sunset and sunrise. If a person has not offered Isha with the congregation at the beginning of its time range, he does well to delay it until the end of its time.

                      The Prophet, peace be upon him, has mentioned that it is only out of fear of making things difficult for his community that he stopped short of ordering them to delay Isha. So when a person delays Isha until shortly before he goes to bed, he does well as long as he offers it within its preferred time, which extends until midnight.

                      If in some unusual circumstances one delays Isha further than midnight, he is still praying it at its proper time as long as he offers it before Fajr. Many scholars extend Isha time until Fajr, on the rule that the time range of each prayer extends until the next prayer is due, with the exception of Fajr, the time of which lapses at sunrise. If this person falls asleep and wakes up to pray Isha before Fajr is due, he has not done wrong.
                      Focus not on who you are but what you do...
