Question & Answer
Can we sleep by keeping our legs towards the Qibla?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

There is absolutely no restriction in the Shariah which states that one cannot sit with their legs towards the direction of the Kaaba. If one in a normal sitting position faces his legs towards the Kaaba, without any intention of disrespect; there is absolutely no harm and no sin.

One may sleep in any direction one wishes, even if one's feet if facing towards the Qibla; as there is absolutely no restriction prescribed against it in the Quran or the Sunnah. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
