Dua for Insomnia

Recommended Posts

Question and Answer:
Q. It is difficult for me to sleep early at night. It takes around 2-3 hours for me to fall asleep. Kindly suggest a dua so Allah can make it easy for me
A. Sayyiduna Zayd Bin Thaabit Radhiyallahu Anhu narrates that he experienced sleepless nights and hence he complained to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam advised him to recite the following Dua:
اَللَّهُمَّ غَارَتِ النُّجُوْمُ ، وَهَدَأَتِ الْعُيُوْنُ ، وَأَنْتَ حَيٌّ قَيُّومٌ ، يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّوْمُ أَنِمْ عَيْنِيْ وأَهْدِئْ لَيْلِيْ
Transliteration: Allahumma Ghaaratin Nujoom, Wa Hada’atil `Uyoon, Wa Anta Hayyun Qayyum. Yaa Hayyu Yaa Qayyum Anim `Ayni, Wa Ah’di` Layli
Translation: “O Allah the stars have gone far away and the eyes are rested. You are living and Infinite, O Ever-living and Everlasting Allah, let my eyes sleep and grant me rest tonight.


After practicing upon this advice, Sayyiduna Zayd Radhiyallahu Anhu said: “I read the Dua and I did not experience the sleepless nights again”. (Mu’jamul kabeer #4817)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
