Sleep is one of the basic needs of human and any disorder in its natural flow in addition to creating psychological problems can reduce the individual performance. There are descriptions and references about sleep and its features in Quran. In Naba Surش sleep has been referred to as a weakness that indicates a disease state. However, the conditions for the occurrence of sleep can be inferred from Kahf Sura, verse 11, which states: “a major quality of sleep is that one cannot estimate its duration”. In several other verses, sleep is said to be similar to temporary death. Substances such as endorphins, cortisol, and encephalin cause euphoria and have direct impacts on different parts of the body including skeletal muscles that lead to muscle comfort during the day. The amount of secretion of these materials into the body in the morning hours significantly increases. Therefore, waking up early in the morning can bring about euphoria and can have positive impacts which last till the end of the day. According to the findings released by the International Agency for Research on Cancer World Health Organization, men and women who work night shifts are at a greater risk of developing breast cancer and prostate cancer, respectively.
