Waking Up Early According To Quran And Sunnah


Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Allah made the early hours blessed for my Ummah.”(Ahmed)
Such gems of productivity are the sources of blessings which we should seek to make our life productive. Waking up early is such an important step to being blessed and feeling good throughout your day.
Try to wake up for Tahajjud, and then work during the hours before Fajr Salah. If you cannot, then at least wake up for Fajr and stay up till sunrise before you return to sleep. Those hours are filled with Barakah. If you’re able to go to work in those hours, do so, you’ll get much more work done than the whole day put together!

Action Items for the Posted Imageuttaqun:

The Sunnah in Waking up

1- Bleaching the face with the hand from the effect of sleeping: An Nawawi and Ibn Hajar recommended this act referring to a Hadith narrated
by Imam Muslim « .. then the Prophet (PBUH) woke up and sat bleaching
his face with his hands»
2-  Saying this Du’aa: «Thanks to Allah Who gave us life after death ,
and all resurrection will be to Him.» Narrated by Al Bukhari
3-  Using «Sewak» (1): «Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) woke up, even
at night; he used the sewak to brush his teeth» (agreed upon)
The wisdom behind that is that the sewak flourishes and activates the
body  and eliminates bad odors.
