How long Do you Sleep..........

Every living thing, whether it is human or animal. It needs time to sleep and rest. I didn't intend to use scholar or point from science and physical view, I'm just want to remind myself and others what is the purpose of your life.

It is He who doth take your souls by night, and hath knowledge of all that ye have done by day: by day doth He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled; In the end unto Him will be your return; then will He show you the truth of all that ye did. 06:60

" Dan dialah yang menidurkan kamu pada waktu malam, dan mengetahui apa yang kamu kerjakan di siang hari; kemudian ia bangunkan kamu dari tidur  padanya untuk disempurnakan ajal ( masa kamu ) yang telah ditetapkan) Kemudian kepadanya lah tempat kamu kembali, kemudian ia menanyakan kepada kamu apa yang kamu lakukan"  Al- Anaam ,60

Below are the point from the productive muslim that I copy.

Those who love their sleep argue that it’s important to sleep at least 6-8 hours each night for a long healthy life, whilst those on the other side believe that sleep is a waste of time and we should sleep the bare minimum to keep us going.
Recently I’ve started thinking about sleep in a different way which helped me resolve this dilemma; the answer seems to be the intention of sleep; if you’re sleeping for dunya (that is to be completely relaxed at work, home, family and to have a long healthy life), then sleeping would be very important to you and you would ensure that you sleep a minimum of 6-8 hours each night. Sleep will become sacred and the overruling factor in most of your decisions, e.g. Should I wake up for tahajjud or sleep? Sleep! Should I wake up early to work on this important piece of work or sleep? Sleep!
However, if you’re sleeping for akhirah, or sleeping for the sake of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), you’ll be sleeping just enough to give your due right to your body whilst not neglecting the fact that you’re here in this world for a temporary period and you’ll soon return to your Lord. You would try to minimize your sleep so that it doesn’t affect your worship – i.e. if you’re asking yourself whether you should sleep or wake up for tahajjud, you would choose to sleep less, you would choose the akhirah, where you would enjoy eternal rest. And this is the description that Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) gives about His slaves:
They used to sleep but little by night [invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope]. (Adh-Dhariyat, Chapter #51, Verse #17)
Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend (in charity in Allah’s Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them. (As-Sajdah, Chapter #32, Verse #16)
Having said that, I would like to emphasize that giving due right to your body is partof the concept of sleeping for akhirah. This is evident in the hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him): (39) Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-’As: Allah’s Apostle said, “O ‘Abdullah! Have I not been informed that you fast all the day and stand in prayer all night?” I said, “Yes, O Allah’s Apostle!” He said, “Do not do that! Observe the fast sometimes and also leave them (the fast) at other times; stand up for the prayer at night and also sleep at night. Your body has a right over you, your eyes have a right over you and your wife has a right over you.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book #62, Hadith #127)
Subhan Allah, how balanced and practical is a true Muslim’s way of life! So you should “listen” to your body; some days you may feel energetic and happy to sleep 3-4 hours, and you’ll be fine. However, some days your body will want you to sleep for 6-8 hours whilst not neglecting your obligatory duties such as salah or tending to your parent’s and family’s needs and that’s fine.

Finally , lets calculate in term of year
If you sleep, 6 hours
6 x 30 = 180 hours =1 month
180 x 12= 2160 hours
if you live to 25 years =  54000 hours

Lets calculate how long do you spend in the praying for 25 years
lets say you pray 5 times a day in 5 minutes in the pray
1 day = 5  x 5 = 25 min 
25min / 60 = 0.416 hours / day
0.416 x 30 = 12.5 hours in 1 month
12.5 x 12= 150 hours only
if you live till 25 years = 3750 hours only......
In conclusion lets found the percentage 0.069 only......
So brother and sister lets think a little and more and more....what did you do in Allah sake......
