  • Wisdom Of Fajr Prayer

    Posted by Shehar Bano on June 16, 2021 at 1:18 am

    I regularly pray Fajr salat Alhamdulillah. I try do it with Khushoo and Khuzoo but I feel so tired and sleepy during Fajr time that my salat is mostly mechanical and I just want to finish and sleep again. What is the hikmat behind Fajr salat and what attitude should I have during Fajr prayer so I feel connected and not just go through the motions.

    Wisdom is simple: Early to Rise. Rise & Shine. First thing in the Morning: Pay homage & Gratitude to your Creator. This will give you a Pure Heart in character(makes it easier to give you calm and composed attitude & Mindset) and a Fresh start for the Morning. A New Day, A New Beginning, New Possibilities, Opportunities as we try to forget and amend our past mistakes from yesterday and the past. That’s why its called a “Present” because its a “Gift” from God. Gets you ready to plan for the future and work in the present while keeping an eye on the past.

    Sun is the biggest Gift from God. As it provides life and warmth. Without Sun there is no life on earth. Fajar is a Message that even before the Sun rises to obey its creator, We Humans should rise before it to make our Creator Happy and be at peace in the process.

    Fajr is not ‘rise & shine’ time everywhere. For example, in the UK during summer Isha is quite late and Fajr is quite early, so there is not enough time between the two and one has to sleep for a few hours after Fajr.

    You can motivate yourself for fajar by reading verse 17:78. The quran recitation in fajar prayer is specially witnessed. Hence, It is reported that Prophet Mohammad saw used to recite quran for longer time then any other prayer.

    As mentioned above in the uk fajr is at about 2 am nowadays and ends at about 4 am. How is this not an evidence of some sort of أعوذ بالله من الشيىطان الرجيم unwise decision.

    This is not, as Ghamidi sahab said, a namaz in extreme business or something. I am sleeping. It is the middle of the night. It is when people sleep. Sleep is very very important

      For Salah and its timings to be understood, first one must have a basis for relationship with God with a conscious realization of that relationship, otherwise all religious requirements can sound baseless to the one not have any such basis whatsoever. The sequence must always be clear as to how relationship with God develops, progresses and manifests itself into performance of rituals and obedience in all the spheres of life, wherever commanded.

      Yes and for Arabs salah being at 6 an fits in perfectly. You start your day off with worship. No one normal starts their day off at 2 am

      You can offer Salah and sleep again, no one is stopping you from thatWink

      When your mother calls you, you don’t look at the watch to determine whether it’s an inappropraite time or not and whether it’s sleep time or not, provided one has solid foundation of relationship with mother with full consciousness.

      My mother doesn’t call me at 2 am

      But I see the point. It can be regarded as a test I guess. The ultimate cop out answer but a valid one

      If it’s a cop out answer, then it’s not an answer. But I think not every question has a straightaway or a superficial answer, sometimes we need to take a look back and see the origin or the foundation from where all the concepts are stemming.

    • Ahmad Shoaib

      Contributor June 17, 2021 at 7:50 am

      Then if we go deeper why is the Arab being called by Allah at 6 am and me at 2 am for the same salah? What’s the deeper origin of this issue and what does it stem from?

    • Umer

      Moderator June 17, 2021 at 7:53 am

      I was referring to the same origin/foundation from where ibadah is stemming.

      Let’s hope she never does and may Allah grant her all the heath. But when parents get old, these things become very normal.

    Namaz is to discipline yourself. Be present on time. Khushu will come, if it doesn’t I don’t think there is need to worry afterall We are humans and our minds can distract.
