Dua Lesson 7: Waking Up in the Morning
All praise is for Allah Who revived us to life after giving us death and to Him we shall have to return.
Abu Hurairah (Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah ( ) said: “Shaytaan ties three knots at the back of the head of any one of you when you go to sleep. On every knot he reads and exhales the following words, “The night is long, so stay asleep.” [i.e. Do not wake up in time for Fajr prayer.] When one awakes and remembers Allah, one knot is undone; and when one does wuduu’, another knot is undone; and when one performs the prayer, the last knot is undone and one gets up energetic with a good heart in the morning; otherwise one gets up lazy and with a mischievous heart.” (Bukhari)
