Answered by Sidi Abdullah Anik Misra

Question: Assalamualaikum.  I keep missing my Fajir prayer all the time. After I wake up I feel so bad that I have missed it but it keeps happening . Please tell  me the importance of fajir prayer and how I can wake up.

Answer: Wa alaikum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Thank you for your question.

Firstly, I’d like to commend you for your concern and worry regarding your obligatory prayers.  The fajr prayer (before dawn) is a time when many people are heedless and sleeping.  The fact that your heart wants to wake up, yet your body keeps sleeping, and thus you feel regret later that morning, is a gift from Allah Ta’ala.

Allah is keeping you connected to Him through your desire to worship Him and your regret when you falter, but showing you that this connection doesn’t come without effort and yearning on your part.  In the end, every step we are enabled to take towards Him is really only because of His divinely-gifted ability (tawfiq) that He blessed us with.

50 Loving Sentiments We Should All Say More Often

info-pictogram1 All too often, we take the people we love the most for granted: our lovers, family members, friends, and even our children. We forget the enormous power of our words, as we carelessly lash out when under stress. We stick our noses in our laptops and smartphones, assuming our loved ones know what we are failing to verbalize, sometimes until the relationships are disconnected or damaged beyond repair.

Make a choice to consciously nurture your relationships with verbal communications of love. Be kind and sincere. Ask open-ended questions with an open heart. Listen empathically and non-defensively. Remember, there are no conditions, no strings, no expectations, and no manipulations. Simply, love to love.

“True Love of Allah (Swt) and His Messenger Muhammad (pbuh) is love for all of Humanity” : Let this love enable Muslims to pray for all Human Beings to come out of this world hatred and strife into a world connected to a Hereafter of Peace. The Light of Allah is capable of reaching anyone, even the rich and famous. Look at the light in the faces of these men (on a recent trip to the Emirates: May Allah guide them to Islam). Maxwell (Musician, Will Smith (actor) and Tyrese Gibson (“Fast and Furious”) Allah is the Greatest!!!
