March 25, 2013




وَمِنَ ٱلَّيْلِ فَسَبِّحْهُ وَإِدْبَٰرَ ٱلنُّجُومِ
And for part of the night also praise thou Him, – and at the retreat of the stars! ~ Surah 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 Salaah

 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


Ahadeeth Pertaining To The Sunnah Of Fajr Salaah 

Hazrat A’isha RA relates that the  Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi 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: Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi 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 Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi 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)
