Ruling on Sleeping Without Wearing Cloth.


Is it permissible to sleep in my room while I am naked?

Praise be to Allah. May Allah peace and blessings be upon the noble Messenger and his family and his companions. After that:


There is nothing wrong with a Muslim in putting his clothes aside and sleeping naked if he is in his own bedroom, and he is not afraid of other from seeing his private part, which is not permissible for him to see.

It is not permissible to look at one's private part except for his wife, and whoever his right hand possesses, for the saying of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him):

[احْفَظْ عَوْرَتَكَ إِلاَّ مِنْ زَوْجَتِكَ أَوْ مِمَّا مَلَكَتْ يَمِينُكَ].

[Protect your 'Awrah except from your wife or what your right hand possesses]. (Recorded by At-tirmidhi,5/41, and others).

Allah has enjoined the children and the servants to seek permission in times of sleep and rest, which is a state for putting clothes aside. Allah says:

{وَحِينَ تَضَعُونَ ثِيَابَكُم مِّنَ الظَّهِيرَةِ}.

{And when you put aside your clothing [for rest] at noon}.(Suratu An-nur:58).

The scholars of interpretation of the Qur'an said: At the time of siesta, because a person may put his clothes asided in that case with his family .. "And after night prayer because it is time for sleeping.

With that, the best for a Muslim is to cover his awrah(private part) in any case.

Allah knows best.

هل يجوز النوم في غرفتي  وأنا عاري؟.


الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وعلى آله وصحبه، أما بعـد:

فلا حرج على المسلم في وضع ثيابه ونومه عاريا إذا كان في غرفة نومه الخاصة ولا يخشى اطلاع غيره على عورته ممن لا يحل له النظر إليه، ولا يجوز النظر إلى العورة إلا لزوجته، ومن هي في ملك يمينه لقول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: احفظ عورتك إلا من زوجتك أو ما ملكت يمينك. الحديث رواه أحمد والترمذي وغيرهما ...
