Great Blessings in Rising Early Tuesday, February 19, 2013

“It is undesirable to engage in non-dīni activities after ‘Ishā Salāh. This was the practice of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam and he advised others to do the same. Hence, all should endeavour to practice upon this. It is best to go to sleep early and rise early, if possible for Tahajjud, and if not, then at least for Fajr.

There is great blessing in the early hours of the morning. One will notice that during the early hours a person is able to complete many tasks. On the contrary, a person who endeavours to carry out these after the morning has passed finds difficulty in them.

This is why our akābir (pious elders) would make it a habit to rise for Tahajjud and thereafter complete their ma‘mūlāt before Fajr. A person is able accomplish more work in the morning then at other times. This is because the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam made du‘ā:

“O Allāh, grant my Ummah blessing in the morning.” (Abū Dawūd)

One other important point to remember is not to sleep in the morning after Fajr without necessity. The Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam said,

“Sleeping in the morning is a means of deprivation from sustenance.” (Ahmad)
