I have a problem of over eating, oversleeping even during salah, and not feeling the sweetness of eeman no mater d act of ibadah!



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


Your concern of not feeling the sweetness of iman is in fact a sign of your iman. Over eating and sleeping is an illnesses. The prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: 


«إِوَجَعَلَ لِكُلِّ دَاءٍ دَوَاءً فَتَدَاوَوْا »

سنن أبي داود (4/ 7)


Allah has appointed a cure for every disease, so treat yourselves medically (Sunan Abu Dawood, v4, pg7).

You should consult an appropriate medical expert to regulate your eating and sleeping habits. You may also set yourself a time table where you allocate your sleeping hours and eating times/portions. This may help to regulate your problem. 



And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
