Blessings Of Fajar Prayer

Recommended Posts

Salah is the foremost pillar of Islam, the observance of which delineates belief from disbelief. The mighty lord has enjoined prayers upon Muslims, which provides the means of fortification with continual reinforcement of faith and belief. Offering and taking care of obligatory prayers provides permanent abode in paradise, which awards countless blessings. Out of all the five compulsory prayers, the Salah of Fajar is undoubtedly, the most valuable one, towards which the divine verse of Quran attests as:

“The two Sunnah cycles of prayer preceding Fajar prayer are better than this world and all that it contains.” [Tirmidhi]


Preeminence of Fajar Prayer:


The significance of pre dawn prayers can be gauged from the narration entailing that those who will offer the prayers before sunrise and after sunset will not be among the dwellers of naar (hell).

It is said that there are two shifts of the angles that ascends to the lord and present the deeds of the people on earth one is before sunrise during Fajar prayers and one after when it sets in Asar.


Untie three knots:


Whilst sleeping Satan ties three knots at the back of head and lull the person to sleep. These three knots are the reason for the despondent and gloomy behavior that one witness frequently during daytime. The remedy for these three knots is Fajar prayers as one knot unties when a believer wakes up, glorifies lord, and makes intention for the dawn Salah. The other unties with ablution and the third knots restore to its original state when one offers Fajar prayers.


Reciting Quran After Fajar Prayer:


The Fajar time is the best time to sneak some spare moments from hectic schedule and be alone with the Quran as the most serene and calm time is the Fajar time where one in literal can supplicate to lord with devotion and recite Quran with utter concentration. One alphabet of Quran encompasses ten virtues then imagine the virtues intertwined with the recitation of one chapter.










Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur'an of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.” [17:78]


In the remembrance of Allah hearts find solace, hence Quran recitation and Dhikar reinvigorates the connection with Allah almighty and fills heart with contentment. Regarding Allah’s Dhikar and tasbeeh Hadith quoted:


“The angels keep on asking Allah’s forgiveness for anyone of you, as long as he is at his Musalla (praying place) and he does not pass wind (Hadath). They say, ‘O Allah! Forgive him, O Allah! be Merciful to him.” [bukhari]


Time of Fajar Prayer:


The time of Fajar prayer lasts precisely for half an hour and is of paramount importance as the soul awakens from its divine presence and returns back to consciousness. Linguistically Fajar means dawn but the root word from which it is derived meaning “burst forth” as the dawn is revealed from the utter darkness. It is the time when the warmth of sun instills new life in living beings hence beginning the day with mediation and prayers awakens positive energy.

Humans ought to be thankful for all the blessings Allah has bestowed upon His worshippers. At the day of resurrection, Muslims will be accountable for their Salah and marks distinction among the worshippers that who remembers Allah in the start of their day by relinquishing all their comfort and sleep. Those who are in habit of offering all five compulsory prayers remain in less calamities and stay enliven in comparison to those who have forgotten Allah for the worldly luxuries and remember Him only in time of need.
