بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

In the name of Allah, all praise is for Allah, and may His peace and blessings be upon His final Messenger Muhammad (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam)

The Qur’an of Fajr: In the stillness and serenity before dawn

Early Hours before dawn is the most productive time by all means.  Our glorious Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, his noble companions and the pious predecessors of the Muslim Ummah used to value this time by indulging in great acts of worshiping one’s Creator. 

Allah mentions in the Qur’an that His righteous servants do give up sleep by arising from their beds to make du’aa, offer Qiyamul layl (Night Prayer) and seek forgiveness for their sins, one’s omissions and commissions.  Continue reading

But if this does not help you, you should turn to the Sunnah, because the Sunnah explains and elucidates the Qur’an. Imam Abû ‘Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Idris ash-Shafi’i has said: “All that the Prophet, peace be upon him, has said is what he has derived from the Qur’an.” Allah has said:
