What is Quran Al-Fajr?

Nots

What is the importance of not getting angry?”Free Quran Education“on Youtube.

Script

in a couple of minutes, I wanted to share with you a small reflection

from one of the very beautiful passages of Surah Isra

Surah Isra being surah # 17 of the Quran

so Allah says
أَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِدُلُوكِ الشَّمْسِ إِلَىٰ غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ وَقُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ ۖ
إِنَّ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُودًا

establish the salah
أَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ

لِدُلُوكِ الشَّمْسِ إِلَىٰ غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ
it actually means

from the time the sun starts getting loose, and it starts sinking meaning around Maghrib time

you know – make sure you make the maghrib salah exactly on time – إِلَىٰ غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ

all the way at the end towards – you know – when the sun is completely gone and it’s the depth of the night

وَقُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ

He didn’t call it “Salah al-Fajr”

like establish the prayer at Maghrib –
establish the prayer at Isha

when it’s really dark at night

but when it came to Fajr,
He didn’t even call it “Salah al-Fajr”,
He says “Quran al-Fajr”

the Quran of Fajr

well, the benefits of that is, of course, that we should recite extra Quran at Fajr

but there’s something special about me as a person – me as a Muslim

developing a relationship with the Quran especially at Fajr

and so the advice I give myself and the advice I’m sharing with all of you

is that if you can make Fajr an institution in your life

set time aside for making good Fajr salah – young men that are listening to this…

go make salat at the Masjid

and the days that you do and you sit there and you recite Quran a little bit

if you can dedicate that time and make that a time in your life

then you will notice the spiritual benefits

and the worldly benefits of doing that immediately

إِنَّ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُودًا

Allah says that the Quran of Fajr- in the same ayah – no doubt about it

it is witnessed – it’s such a beautiful thing to say

because the word مَشْهُودً means “that which is witnessed”

so the Fajr of Quran – the recitation of Quran – the prayer that you attended

is witnessed – the question is witnessed by who?

you know – that’s an hour of the day when most people are asleep

so even if somebody’s walking to the prayer, driving to the prayer – nobody sees them

But Allah says that’s the time that is مَشْهُودً

usually things that are مَشْهُودً – things that are witnessed – are in the middle of the day

popular times – popular places

but the Masjid is not a popular place at Fajr time – not for most of us

the Salat is not a popular time for most of us

it’s not when you see a lot of people around you

but Allah says.. no doubt about it, it is witnessed

the question is then – witnessed by who?

not by other people that are sleeping –
not by the people of غفله – the people of heedlessness

the people of sleep

but rather by the angels that are recording our deeds

rather by Allah عزوجل himself

Who’s making making note of these slaves that are coming in

you know – leaving their sleep for Himself and His Word

so this is a very powerful thing

and so tied to this are – you know – this advice

for myself again – for all of you

is if we can make a really good habit of going to sleep early

this is easy to say – so hard to do – I know

I know

we always have things to do and they pile up

and we start getting around to them in the evening

of course, Shaitan gets a little extra active in the evening too

so our distractions come and

you know – you’re sitting there watching videos – hopefully not this one at 2 in the morning – you know

and you’re doing all of this late late at night, and then your Fajr is basically

you know

it’s kind of just getting it out of the way – you’re half asleep – and you pray a couple of rakahs

you don’t even know what you prayed

you know – your wudu was when you were half asleep
your prayer was when you were half asleep

and you go about your day

you know – if you wake up – if you’re among those who wake up

so if we can make a

real habit in our lives of going to sleep early

and as a result waking up early

and really having the Quran of Fajr being given its right – Quran al-Fajr

is one of the few اضافه – I don’t know of any other اضافه in the Quran

except قرآنه – it’s recital

that the word Quran is associated with something else directly like this with this kind of construction

except with Fajr

so I pray that I’m able to take advantage of that and all of you are

and I can guarantee you – I know I’ve experienced this personally in my life

and I can guarantee you experiences for yourselves

once you make a habit out of this

or you try to implement it even a little bit

you will start seeing its benefits immediately

you know – if not almost immediately

you’re going to start seeing your day’s different – your mood is different

what you can accomplish is different

the barakah in your time is different

So I pray that Allah makes us a people of Quran

and a people that are really able to take advantages of the times
that Allah offers His special assistance to us and special lessons to us
