Virtues of Fajr Prayer
The Muslim should know the great status of salaat al-fajr in the sight of Allah SWT.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“Whoever prays the dawn prayer in congregation, it is as if he had prayed the whole night long.”
(Muslim, p. 454, no. 656; al-Tirmidhi, 221).
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) also said:
“The most burdensome prayers for the hypocrites are salaat al-’isha’ andsalaat al-fajr, but if they only knew what they contain, they would come even if they had to crawl.”
(Reported by Imaam Ahmad, al-Musnad, 2/424;Saheeh al-Jaami’, 133).
“Whoever prays fajr is under the protection of Allah. Do not put yourselves in a situation where Allah has to call you to account for your negligence.”
(Reported by al-Tabaraani, 7/267; Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 6344).
