Sunnah 103: Stay up after fajr

August 5, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

“The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: ‘O Allah, bless my Ummah in the mornings.’ [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]

A companion said about the Prophet (pbuh): “He would not get up from the place where he had prayed Subh (Morning Prayer) until the sun rose. When the sun rose, he would get up.” [Muslim]

The Prophet (pbuh) asked Allah to bless his Ummah in its mornings- so let us try to stay up after fajr or at least be early risers and get our work done in the morning. We will feel the blessing inshAllah! Another incentive to stay up after fajr is the Prophet’s (pbuh) words:

“He who performs the fajr prayer in congregation and remains seated in the same place while engaging in dhikr (remembrance of God) until after sunrise and thereafter performs 2 raka’s voluntary prayer, he will obtain the rewards of one Hajj and one Umrah” [Tirmidhi]
