Preferred vs. Required in Islam

----
I just received a phone call from a Christian friend of mine inquiring about the reason that Islam prohibits sleeping on your stomach. I explained to him (as per my limited knowledge and please excuse me if I am wrong) that the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) stated that it is preferred if you sleep on your right side.

The medical rationale (and this is only conjecture as I am a layman) is that sleeping on your left side places too much pressure and stress on your heart. Sleeping on your back causes you to snore and I do not know what sleeping on your stomach does (as I am not a doctor) :-) Thus, it is preferred to sleep on your right side but it is not prohibited to sleep on another side.

He stated what is the difference. The Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) was a role model for Muslims and we aim in our quest to become better people by emulating him and his actions. Thus, there are things that are directly prohibited in our religion (ex. drinking alcohol, cursing, etc...) where if we do them, we acquire sins. Meanwhile, there are other things that are preferred to be done and if we do them, then we acquire good deeds in our book, but if we do not do them, then we do not acquire sins. An example that is relevant during Ramadan is the Taraweeh prayers.

Hope that the above explanation will suffice to those of us that aim to educate non-Muslims about our religion.

Hi there,

Sorry to write you in your blog comments, but I didnt know how else to reach you.

I’m writing you on behalf of Watani, the UAE’s national identity program.

As you know, we are lucky to live in a country where hundreds of people from all over the world, of different cultures and nationalities, live together peacefully.

To celebrate just that, we have launched an initiative called “Al Mutahida” which is Arabic for being united, or togetherness. Under this initiative, that will build up to National Day celebrations on December 2, we have a few activities for which we want to encourage participation of people who love living in the UAE. To inform them about the initiatives and motivate participation, we’d like your help.

You can see updates from the program here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/WATANI/171834654444?ref=nf

We selected you because you live in the UAE, and have an interesting blog. We’d love you to write a post about our initiative and its purpose on your blog. Would you be willing to support us by doing so? If so, please let us know and we will send you all the relevant information. Also, let us know if you have any questions.

Please help us celebrate the amazing spirit of the country we all live in!

Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks and regards,

Abha Malpani
