Khalifahklothing - Importance of Salatul Fajr - Sh. Abu Usamah at-Thahabi


When the people of paradise ask the people of hellfire as to why they have entered the Fire, they will respond by saying that "we were not of those who used to pray." People who pray salaatul Fajr will get the greatest blessing on the Day of Judgment, that is, to see Allah (swt).Angels of the night time and angels of the day time meet at the time of Fajr and witness salaatul Fajr in congregation. Fajr in the Masjid is more beloved to Umar (r) than qiyamul-lail all night long. Rasoolullaah (saws) and the Sahabah would check up upon those who missed the Fajr in congregation. If you knew the rewards of praying Fajr in congregation in the Masjid, you'd come even if you had to crowl. Whoever is consistent in praying the two prayers of the cold (Fajr&Asr) will enter Jannah.*********************************************************************************************************Abu Usamah was born in New Jersey in 1964.
