SLEEPING IN THE MORNINGS IS A CAUSE OF LOSING SUSTENANCE OR A LACK OF BLESSINGS IN IT
Translation: It is reported from Hadhrat Uthman رضي الله عنه that Nabi-e-Kareem صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَم said, “Sleeping in the morning is a source of being deprived of sustenance.”
BENEFIT: Consider the fact that Nabi-e-Kareem has established sleeping in the morning to be the source of deprivation from sustenance. A portion of the Ummah today passes their mornings in the sleep of heedlessness. For the sake of this same sleep, they leave out performing their Fajr Salaah. Some perform it later in the day but most do not read it at all.
What a fearful situation this is. A believer can never be successful in the world while giving up the Faraaidh and commands of Allaah تعالى. Yes, non Muslims will be successful in all respects in this world. The morning is the time for serving Allaah تعالى, for worshiping Allaah تعالى, for Zikr and Tilaawat. Therefore, to sleep at this time is a source of being greatly deprived. This is the time when sustenance is being allocated. A portion of the Ummah is stressed out with respect to sustenance and earning. Either they do not have some appropriate source of income or if they do have a source of income, there is no Barkat in it. They do not consider sleeping in the mornings to be a cause of this. They are destroying the way of life prescribed by Allaah and His Rasool صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَم in which there is only goodness.
O Ummat-e-Muslimah, O youth come to your senses. Perform your Fajr Salaah on time. Instead of passing this valuable time in sleep and heedlessness, engage in the remembrance of Allah تعالى and thereafter engage yourselves in seeking Halaal sustenance and observe how the assistance of Allaah تعالى comes your way.
