The Fajr prayer (Arabic: صلاة الفجر‎‎ ṣalāt al-faǧr, "dawn prayer") is the 2 raka'at obligatory prayer ('Subuh' prayer) of the five daily prayers offered by practising Muslims. (Fajr means dawn in the Arabic language.)
The Fajr prayer is mentioned by name in the Qur'an at sura 24 (An-Nur) ayah.[1] Inspired by the tafsir of the two hadiths that were transmitted on behalf of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, the worth of the Fajr daily prayer is explained as being God's most-favoured prayer since others are asleep
In Quran, Allah Almighty says:
“Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give zakah will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.” (2:277)
Another major reason why a Muslim must strictly observe offering of Fajr prayer is the fact that angels sent down by Allah Almighty witness the Fajr prayer offered by a Muslim. About this witnessing, firstly Allah Almighty says in Quran:
“Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur’an of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.” (17:78)
In short, other than the obvious rewards and benefits of offering Fajr prayer as discussed above, the offering of Fajr starts the day of a Muslim with the name of Allah and gives him or her the right foundation to have a righteous day that is spent under the blessings of Allah Almighty.
