Prayer is the second pillar of Islam. Offering prayer five times a day is obligatory on every Muslim. Prayer provides focus, clarity, direction, and vision reminds the believer that life on earth is temporary. Fajr is the first call of prayer of the day. If you want success in your life, you must offer fajr prayer. In Holy Quran, Allah Almighty says: “Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give Zakah will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.” (Quran, 2:277)
Benefits of Fajr Prayer
There are a lot of Fajr prayer benefits. Some of major are following;
Protection from Shaitaan:
Namaz e Fajr is the best way to protect from shaitan. Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever offers the Morning Prayer, he is under the protection of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime” (Ibn Majah).
Beginning the Day with Energy and Positivity
If you want energy, you must offer fajr prayer. Fajr prayer is the best way to relax the mind and positivity. You will be fresh and do hard work the whole day with the help of fajr prayer. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran: “Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Quran of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed” (Quran, 17:78).
Rescuing from Hell
Muslims who offer the Fajr and Maghrib prayer will not enter Hell. There is hadith related to this: “Whoever performs the Prayer before the rising of the sun and the Prayer before its setting will not enter Hell.”(Book: Muslim).
Prayer is a means of invoking Allah Almighty. Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever prays the Fajr prayer, he or she is then under Allah’s protection. So beware, O son or daughter of Adam, that Allah does not call you to account for being absent from His protection for any reason.” (Muslim). We can conclude from this hadith, that the one who offers Fajr prayer is directly under the protection of Allah Almighty.
Cleansing of Soul
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Know that among your duties, prayer is foremost”. Fajr Prayer really is one of the most beautiful acts and cleanses the soul.
