18. How to wake up for Fajar Namaaz

Do you offer the Fajr salah every day? You don’t? Because no matter how hard you try, you can’t wake up? This is one of the most common problems with Muslims today.

Here are a few ways to get your self out of this trouble.

* Sleep early! - Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to discourage sleep before performing Ishaa prayer and especially engaging in conversation after it.

* Recite the dua’as before going to sleep. Also, ask Allah to wake you up for the Fajr prayer. (This helps tremendously. Try it!)

* Ask your wife, parents, relatives, friends or neighbors to wake you up. And once you do wake up, do not linger in the bed lazily. This is what hypocrites do!

* Fill your heart with faith and good deeds. The heart responds to the brain’s perceptions of external stimuli. So keep yourself in control regarding what you see, hear, and eat.

* Keep away from sins. Protect your eyes, tongue, and ears; and restrict the use of all your senses to only what is halal.

* Realize the rewards! Uthmaan ibn 'Affaan related: I heard Allah's Messenger (SalAllahu A’lyhe Wasallam) say: "He who prays Ishaa in Jamaa'ah [congregation] is as if he has prayed for half the night. As to him who (also) prays Fajr in congregation, it is as if he has prayed all night." [Narrated by Maalik and the wording is that of Muslim who also reported it]

* Realize the bad effects of missing the Fajr prayer. The Prophet (SalAllahu A’lyhe Wasallam) said: "Shaytaan ties three knots on the crown of any one of you in your sleep. He says upon each knot that he ties: "You have a long night before you, therefore sleep". But if you wake up and mention Allah, Most Exalted in remembrance one knot will be untied. If you then make ablution another knot will be undone. If you then proceed to pray the last knot will be disentangled. Thus, you will feel in the morning energetic and in good spirits. Otherwise you will feel in a despicable state, lazy". [Narrated by Maalik, Bukhaaree, Muslim and Abu Dawood]

• Don’t be a hypocrite! It is recorded in Bukhaaree and Muslim that the Prophet (SalAllahu A’lyhe Wasallam) said: "Indeed, the most difficult of prayers to bear, for the hypocrites, are Ishaa [night] and Fajr prayers. If only they knew what they are missing, they would sooner come, even if crawling on their knees". The most worthy companion, Abdullaah and Ibn Mas'ood (radiallaahu-anhu) asserts "The only one indeed who misses them [i.e. Ishaa and Fajr prayers] is a confirmed hypocrite" [Reported by Muslim, Aboo Daawood, Ibn Maajah and Nasaa'ee] Taken from: Mending the Rift: Guidelines to Help You Observe the Fajr Prayer
