Wipe the effects of sleep from the face with your hands:
Imam An-Nawawee and Ibn Hajar stated this wiping to be desirable based on the following narration:
“When the messenger of Allah (pbuh) woke up, he would sit up and rub his face with his hands.”
Say the supplication for waking up:
الحَمْدُ لِلهِ الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ
All praise is for Allah who gave us life after death (sleep) and to him is the resurrection.
When the Prophet (peace be upon him) woke up from the night (sleep), he used to clean his mouth with a siwaak.
When one of you wakes up from sleep, then snuff water three times. For indeed, Satan spends the night in the upper part of his nose.
Wash both hands three times:
When one of you wakes up from sleep, he must not dip his hands into a utensil until he washes it three times.
