Answered by: Maulana Mohammed Haroon Hussain
I am having difficulty with waking up for the Fajr prayer. How do I combat this? May ALLAH (SWT) unite us in Jannah.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
May Allah reward you for your good intentions. Try the following steps:
- Make dua to Allah to give you the ability.
- Sleep early after Isha and do not spend nighttime on devices.
- Set an alarm (or several alarms).
- Get someone to wake you up or call you at Fajr time.
- Avoid committing sins.
Remember that when something is important to someone (like an appointment, a job or an interview), he will wake up for it no matter how early it is. The reason why we struggle with Fajr is that its importance of it has not settled into our hearts and minds. May Allah give us all the ability to act upon the deen and please Him.
Only Allah knows best
