How to Be Productive Without Getting Stressed Out

We all try to avoid the dreaded “S” word, but sometimes it just creeps up on us and our loved ones.

Here are some thoughts on how to reclaim our lives from all the hidden stress and become more productive.

Tahajjud and Qiyam ul layl

One of the meanings of the word Tahajjud is to give up sleep. In the religious sense it means to wake up in the later part of night to pray Nafal prayers. Tahajjud was prescribed in the initial period of Islam which is also known as Meccan Period.

Most people confuse Qiyam ul Layl and Tahajjud. Qiyam ul layl is more general of the two and can include praying salah as well as other zikr. It can also be before sleeping or after it. However tahajjud is exclusively praying. There is difference of opinion regarding tahajjud. Some fuqaha are of the view that tahajjud only applies to praying after sleeping. However most fuqaha believe that it means praying at any time regardless of sleeping or not.

Huge Reward for Small Acts: Why?

A good number of the Prophet's hadiths promises huge rewards for seemingly small acts of worship. For example, in one hadith the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) tells us that reciting surat Al-Ikhlas is equal to reciting one third of the Qur'an, that is, you can earn the reward of reciting the whole Qur'an in just 5 minutes.

Amazing, isn't it?

Some people think that these "offers" are too good to be true. They are skeptic about the authenticity of these hadiths and believe that such "disproportion" of reward to acts cannot be stated by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

It is true that some reports about the advantages of certain acts is discredited by hadith scholars as unauthentic hadiths, yet many other hadiths are authentic. The above hadith about surat Al-Ikhlas is reported by Al-Bukhari. So, how do you explain such highly-rewarding "special offers"?
