All praise be to Allaah. The solution to this problem, like others, has two aspects:theoretical and practical.The theoretical aspect may be further broken down into two points:(1) The Muslim should know the great status of salaat al-fajr in the sight of Allaah, may He be glorified. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be uponhim) said: “Whoever prays the dawn prayer in congregation, it is as if he hadprayed the whole night long.” (Muslim, p. 454, no. 656; al-Tirmidhi, 221).The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also said:“The most burdensome prayers for the hypocrites are salaat al-’isha’ and salaatal-fajr, but if they only knew what they contain, they would come even if they hadto crawl.” (Reported by Imaam Ahmad, al-Musnad, 2/424; Saheeh al-Jaami’,133).“Whoever prays fajr is under the protection of Allaah. Do not put yourselves in asituation where Allaah has to call you to account for your negligence.” (Reportedby al-Tabaraani, 7/267; Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 6344).“Angels come to you in shifts by night and by day. They meet at salaat al-fajr andsalaat al-‘asr, then those who had stayed with you at night ascend, and areasked by the One Who knows better than they: ‘How did you find My servants?’They say, ‘We left them when they were praying, and we came to them whenthey were praying.’” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2/33).“The best of prayers in the sight of Allaah is the dawn prayer on Friday, incongregation.” (Reported by Abu Na’eem in al-Hilyah, 7/207, and in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 1566).According to a saheeh hadeeth: “Whoever prays al-Bardayn will enter Paradise.”(Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2/52). Al-Bardayn are fajr and ‘asr.
