Wa alaykum salaam warahmatullaah wabarakaatuh


For the first question, we answered a very similar question to this very recently on the one who passes wind, please refer to it.

Secondly, excessive thinking is not a reason to terminate the Salaat, rather, a reason to concentrate more and abandon anything that is a cause for such distractions. Baarakallaahu feekum.
Lastly, though it is permissible and recommended to delay the Ishaa, it is disliked to sleep before Ishaa.

In the Hadith, the illustrous Companion Abu Barzata Al-Aslami – radiyallaahu anhu – said of the Rasul – salallaahu alayhi wasallam:

{ كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يصلي العصر ، ثم يرجع أحدنا إلى رحله في أقصى المدينة والشمس حية ، وكان يستحب أن يؤخر من العشاء ، وكان يكره النوم قبلها والحديث بعدها ،
وكان ينفتل من صلاة الغداة حين يعرف الرجل جليسه ،
وكان يقرأ بالستين إلى المائة }

“The Messenger of Allah – salallaahu alayhi wasallam – would observe Salaatu Al-Asr and one of us would would be able to return to his hut at the end of the city while the sun is still in the sky. And he used to prefer that he delays the Ishaa. And he used to dislike sleeping before it and discussing after it.
He used to finish the dawn Salaat when a man could identify his sitting Companion while he would have recited between 60 to 100 aayaat.”

*Transmitted and recorded by both Imaam Al-Bukhaari and Imaam Muslim*

Imaam As-San’aani – rahimahullaah – said:

“That the one who sleep at that time may not sleep deep and miss the best time it is to be performed.”

*Subulu As-Salaam*

Imaam Ar-Ramli – rahimahullaah – said:

“And it is disliked to sleep before it, meaning Salaatu Al-Ishaa, due to what is feared of the possibility of sleeping into the passing away of its time frame, and because the Rasul – salallaahu alayhi wasallam – used to dislike sleeping before it and discussing after it.”

The Shafi’is in their dominant canon hold that it is disliked to sleep before Ishaa only if one sleeps when its time has set in.

The Maalikis and the Hanafis hold that it is disliked unrestrictedly. Whether the time of Ishaa has set in or not. As long as it is between Maghrib and Ishaa. Also, whether the is someone to wake him up or not.

The Kuffan School (Hanafis) hold that it is only disliked if there is no one to wake him up.

What is Sunnah and closest to the truth is the position held by Maalik and Ibn Hanbal, that *it is disliked unrestrictedly to sleep between Maghrib and Ishaa* unless when there is a pressing necessity for that.
Based on that, it is better for you not to delay your Salaat to the extent that you feel sleepy.
