Importance of Fajr prayer

Importance of Fajr prayer

If one were to make a list of the worst expletives in the world, the word ‘hypocrite’ would surely be at the top. If I close my eyes and imagine, if someone says to me ‘where is the hypocrite!’, how would I feel! Or if I address someone as a ‘hypocrite’, will he lash out at me with great fury and fury? What is the reason for this? Because hypocrisy is an abominable character, nothing to be proud of.
But… if I myself don’t wear this ‘hypocrite’ Abhidhar tilak on my forehead, then who can? I went to Abu Huraira again. He narrates to us a saying of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ):
ﻟﻴﺲ ﺻﻼﺓ ﺃﺛﻘﻞ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻤﻨﺎﻓﻖ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﻔﺠﺮ ﻭﺍﻟﻌﺸﺎﺀ

“There is no more difficult prayer for a hypocrite than Fajr and Isha”
[Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]

I am not a hypocrite, but I acted like a hypocrite by leaving Fajr.
Alas, day by day going down!
How low are you going!
I tell myself,
So I am a sinner to be thrown into hell?
Am I so low as to be a place for the discharge of Satan?
Am I so vile as to be called a hateful term like a hypocrite?
Was I supposed to be so miserable as to be condemned by God?
was not
I want to get rid of this lowliness.
I want to free myself from this depravity.
I want to be freed from the curse of being a follower of Satan.
I want to be praised by my beloved Lord.

Importance of Fajr prayer

No decision, I will never leave Fajr Salat. fall asleep But after the call to prayer, I became drowsy again. I saw Samurah Ibn Jundub (RA) a companion of the Prophet (ﷺ) in a dream. He came and sat beside me. He put his hand on his head. Then he said, “Let me tell you a dream story in a dream.” I like stories very much. Sotsah said, ‘Please don’t say!’ Before starting the story, he said, ‘This is a dream, but it is not a dream. The Prophet (ﷺ) saw the dream I am telling you about!’ I became more eager. He began to tell the story. Whenever he said:
ﺃﻣﺎ ﺍﻟﺬﻱ ﻳﺜﻠﻎ ﺭﺃﺳﺎﺎﺎﺤﺠﺮ ﻓﺍﻧﻳﺄﺧﺬ ﺍﻟﻘﺮﺮﺍﺎﺎﻓﻀﻪ ﻭﻳﻨﻎﻡ ﻋﻦ ﺍﻟﺼﻼﺓ ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺎ
“The person whose head was being crushed with a stone is the one who takes the Qur’an and rejects it and sleeps after the obligatory prayer.”
[Sahih Bukhari]

I was sweating profusely. I jumped out of bed. By that time it was almost time for Fajr. I hastily performed two rakats. But how the mind was bored. I could not settle on anything. A sense of emptiness was engulfing me. I did not read it with the Jama’at; I also omitted two rakat sunnah. Our Prophet (ﷺ) said about these two Rakat Sunnah:

ﺭﻛﻌﺘﺎ ﺍﻟﻔﺠﺮ ﺧﻴﺮ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﺪﻧﻴﺎ ﻭﻣﺎ ﻓﻴﻬﺎ

“The two rakat (Sunnah) prayer of Fajr is better than anything between the earth and the earth.”
[Muslim, Tirmidhi, Nasa’i, Ahmad]

Another thought was created while sitting on the exam. Well, if the value of the two rakat sunnah of Fajr is so high, then how much more the value and status of the obligatory two rakats can be!

I am missing such a great honor and prestigious occasion every day for half an hour more sleep! What a fool I am! Shall I curse me? No, that’s no use. Instead, without further delay, I decided to join the ranks of the lucky ones.
Since then I try to concentrate on Fajr prayer. Bed linen can’t put me in the same old hole anymore. ‘Assalatu Khairum Minan Naom’ brings a swoon of otherworldly tones to my ears. What a whirlwind of excitement to get me!

I slowly walked towards the Masjid. The night has not yet completely fallen from the lap of the earth. My steps advanced through the darkness. How a ray of satisfaction awakens my ‘Supti-Magan’ with a gentle touch. Where is the source of this satisfaction? Many sources! Tell you which one? A source may be this hadith:

ﻣﻦ ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻌﺸﺎﺀ ﻓﻲ ﺟﻤﺎﻋﺔ ﻓﻜﺄﻧﻤﺎ ﻗﺎﻡ ﻧﺼﻒ ﺍﻟﻠﻴﻞ ﻭﻣﻦ ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﺼﺒﺢ ﻓﻲ ﺟﻤﺎﻋﺔ ﻓﻜﺄﻧﻤﺎ ﻗﺎﻡ ﺍﻟﻠﻴﻞ ﻛﻠﻪ

“He who prays “Isha” with the congregation is as if he prayed (Nafal) for half the night; And whoever prayed Fajr with the congregation, it was as if he had prayed the whole night (Nafal).”
[Sahih Muslim, Musnad Ahmad]
