وَمِنَ ٱلَّيْلِ فَسَبِّحْهُ وَإِدْبَٰرَ ٱلنُّجُومِ

And for part of the night also praise thou Him, – and at the retreat of the stars! At-Tur (52:49)

2 SUNNAT-E-MUA’KADDAH OF FAJR SALAAH :

• It is extremely virtuous to pray the two rakaats Sunnah- e-Mua’kaddah ie. before the two Fard rakaats of Fajr Salaat

• Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam would pray them lightly (meaning he would not lengthen them)

• It is Sunnah to recite Surah al-Kafiroon in the first rakaah and Surah al-Ikhlaas in the second rakaah of the Fajr Sunnah prayers

HADITH PERTAINING TO THE SUNNAH OF FAJR SALAAH :

Hazrat A’isha RA relates that the Rasulullaah Sallallaahu alyhi Wasallam said, “The two Rakaats of (the Sunnah of) Fajr are better than the world and all it contains.” [Muslim]

Hazrat  Abu Hurairah RA reported: Rasulullaah Sallallaahu alyhi Wasallam recited in the two Sunnah Rakaah of the Fajr prayer, Surah Al-Kafirun (in the first Rakaah), and Surah Al-Ikhlas (in the second Rakaah) ~Muslim

Hazrat Abu Hurayra RA narrates that Rasulullaah Sallallaahu alyhi Wasallam said, “Do not abandon the sunnah rakaats of Fajr, even if horses trample over you.” (Sunan Abu Dawud 1:186, Athar al-Sunan 1:224)
