In Prophet Muhammad saw daily routine, there are few points to keep in mind:

  1. The Prophet’s ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) day was organised around prayer times. As we say at ProductiveMuslim, plan your life around salah and not the other way round.
  2. Even though the Prophet ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) was busy (he was a husband, father, community person, statesman, general, and most importantly, a Prophet!) you can feel that his routine wasn’t stressful. Everything eased into each other.
  3. It struck me how much time he was spending with his family; I counted at least 4-5 times where he spends quality time with his family in a day despite the demands on his time.
  4. He was also a community person, making an effort to visit people and fulfilling rights, teaching, and looking after those who need help.
  5. You can feel that the secret to the Prophet’s ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) energy and balance in his life, is his long night prayers at night; that barakah from the long night prayer was pouring into the rest of his blessed day and making him lead a successful, productive life.
Practical tips from the Prophet’s ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) routine between Maghrib and Isha
  1. Praying two rak’ahs before Maghrib prayer
  2. Shortening the Maghrib prayer and praying it at the beginning of its time
  3. Not giving a lecture/talk after Maghrib prayer (depending on the situation of the people)
  4. Praying the two rak’ahs of sunnah after Maghrib at home
  5. Having dinner after Maghrib prayer, either with his family or Companions
  6. Speaking during the dinner meal and having a pleasant conversation
  7. Following the Islamic manners of eating: saying Bismillah, eating with the right hand, eating from what’s next to you, and saying Alhamdulillah after eating (try to also follow the sunnah of eating with three fingers and licking your fingers after eating)
Practical tips from the Prophet’s ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) routine after Isha till midnight
  1. Delaying Isha prayer as much as possible (this is dependent on the Imam of course: for those who are being led, they should not go late to the masjid)
  2. Praying the two rak’ahs of sunnah after Isha at home
  3. Spending quality time with the family after Isha or with close friends
  4. Spending quality time with the spouse before sleeping
  5. Remembering Allah sub??nahu wa ta'?la (glorified and exalted be He) before sleeping
Practical tips from the Prophet’s ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) routine from midnight till Fajr
  1. Sleeping after Isha and waking up after midnight for night prayer
  2. Starting by using siwak, remembering Allah sub??nahu wa ta'?la (glorified and exalted be He), making wudhu and getting ready for the night prayer
  3. Starting the night prayer with two light/easy rak’ahs and then getting into longer ones
