Assalammualaikum and Hi everyone...:D what a blessing day, hope everyone in a great health and wellness...ameen...:)
okay, let me start with the problem that we all have in common which is, lateness/missed in performing fajr prayer. maybe only some of us have this difficulty right? that is totally good, praise to Allah for those who are able to pray on time...:) But, for those who are still strive for it, don't worry let us fix that problem!!! This entry is focused on how to perform solah on time (especially fajr) so that we can further inspiring ourselves to perform Qiam/Tahajud as well, insyaAllah...:)
1st: let us reawaken ourselves about the benefits or rewards of performing prayer on time or performing fajr prayer. from what i have learned, those who are able to do so, seems to perform solah for the entire night
this s supported with the hadith narrated from:
At-Tirmidhi says: `Uthman bin Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that he had heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: "He who attends `Isha' in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat for half of the night; and he who attends `Isha' and Fajr prayers in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat for the whole night.''
MasyaAllah, the analogy given by Uthman Bin Affan is more than enough to inspired us!!! and it's not simply and analogy, indeed its true!!!
2nd: performing fajr prayer is to differentiate between the true believer and those who are pretend to be so;
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: ''The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "No Salat is more burdensome to the hypocrites than the Fajr (dawn) prayer and the `Isha' (night) prayer; and if they knew their merits, they would come to them even if they had to crawl to do so.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
indeed, none of us want to be claimed as hypocrites right??
3rd: do u crave for more love??? especially from the 'one'?? what is more worth it than that??
'A'isha (radiallahu anha) reports that the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said regarding the two (sunnah) rak'ats at the break of dawn, "They are more beloved to me than the enitre world." (Sahih Muslim 1:251)
4th: hey, health conscious!!! u might x want to miss this opportunity right??
"And He it is Who made the night a covering for you, and the sleep a rest, and He made the day to rise up again"
[Surah al-Furqan; 25:47]
study shows that those who are sleep less than 7 hours is more healthier as compared to those who sleep more than 8 hours!!! wooo....this means that healthy people usually need only 5-7 hours of sleep a night!!! (john mcdougal) so, how to be part of healthy person?? we just have wake up earlier and perform our fajr prayer on time, easy right?? :)
5th: sleep early, tell your mind that you are going to wake up soon, if possible wake up early than farj time and use that moment to seek for Allah blessing by performing TAHAJUD....;)
So guys, if we can inspiring ourselves to be on time for fajr prayer, let us boost our iman by motivating ourselves to perform tahajud as well. start with fixing fajr prayer...
love and hugs; MQ...:D
Allah’s Apostle said, “Satan puts three knots at the back of the head of any of you if he is asleep. On every knot he reads and exhales the following words, ‘The night is long, so stay asleep.’ When one wakes up and remembers Allah, one knot is undone; and when one performs ablution, the second knot is undone, and when one prays the third knot is undone and one gets up energetic with a good heart in the morning; otherwise one gets up lazy and with a mischievous heart''. Narrated: Abu Huraira
NOTE: SOLAH IS A PILLAR OF OUR FAITH,SO, PLEASE LOOK AFTER IT...LET US REMIND EACH OTHER...:)
