    There's an ingenious method that was developed to this end by Buddish monks high in the Tibetan mountains hundreds of years ago. It consists of drinking an obscene amount of alcohol.

    It works for me. It is just like waves etc. Type it in on youtube and check out a few if you want. It may still take you a while to get used to it at first, but it does work.

    Had the same problem for ages.
    Drink chamomile tea, listen to podcasts or try to reinact a well known route in your mind with all the small details along the way for example from home to school (weird, but works) .

    Avoid using technology (phones, TV, computer) from about 30 minutes before you want to get to sleep.

    I start counting. It displaces whatever you're thinking about, and eventually I usually go to sleep.

    Then I would suggest the additional step of abandoning your Muslim faith.

    Don't watch tele or do things on your phone- the brightness and concentration required is only gonna keep you alert.

    Yoga/stretching.

    Hot chocolate :P might relax you..?

    As far as my suggestion for sleeping goes it sounds as if it would be a prerequisite.

    I know it sounds crazy, but try reverse psychology, and try to stay awake as long as possible. Always works for me.

    Also, stop looking at the clock and working out exactly how much sleep you'll get if you fall asleep this minute. We all do it. Not productive.

    Just focus on your breathing. Or picture a colour in your head. There are loads of things people do.

    This is quite weird, but the best thing to do is not to think about not sleeping. This stresses you out and makes it worse.
