The time for the Qayloolah


Question: According to the Sunnah, is the time for the qayloolah (siesta) before or after the Zhuhr prayer?

Response: It is before they pray the Zhuhr prayer. (Then), after the (mid-day) heat has lessened, they can pray (the Zhuhr prayer). And the meaning of his (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) saying:

«Perform the Zhuhr (prayer) when it is cool», [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree, No.538] is that you should do the qayloolah before (the Zhuhr prayer).

And if he were to sleep after the Zhuhr prayer, then it is not considered as the qayloolah.

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
