What to do upon awakening?


Can you confirm what is the sunnah after waking up.

Should we wash our hand – is this the first thing to do or should we wash it before touching any ustensil.



Upon awakening one should rub his eyes – to remove the effects of sleep and also recite the relevant du’as.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 183)


One is advised to wash the hands only before immersing it into any utensil after awakening.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 162 & Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 641)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
