The Azan never wakes me up and I've lived in places with roosters but it wasn't enough to wake me up either. I do tend to just wake up around 6am every day regardless, unless I was drinking heavily the night before. I seldom actually get out of bed until later, except to pee.

Anyway, I think it was probably rare to live alone in those days so people probably had someone to wake them if it was important that they got up early.

The majority of them eventually figured out that, if you drink a lot of water before you go to sleep, you'll eventually wake up to pee. You drink more or less, depending on how early or late you wanted to wake up.

Actually if you start sleeping early and wake up at the same hour for a few days you automatically start to wake up at that time and sleep early. It becomes a system.

It would be interesting to know how animals perceive time.

Before precise measured time, people were probably more flexible about daily schedules, so in that way life was less stressful.
