Hadith Explanation

Livelihood Distributed from Fajr to Sunrise

Fatima bint Muhammad (radi Allahu anha) narrated: “Allah’s Messenger passed by me and I was lying down. He stirred me with his foot and said, ‘O my daughter! Get up and behold the gift of your Lord and do not be neglectful, for Allah distributes livelihood from the appearance of Fajr (dawn) to sunrise.’” [Baihaqi]

This hadith informs us that the time from dawn to sunrise is special and should not be spent sleeping. The day for a Muslim begins at dawn and he/she is required to be fully awake before sunrise.

Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) woke his beloved daughter Fatima (radi Allahu anha) up so she does not miss receiving the gifts of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). We should also ensure that our children are awake at this time and don’t turn a sleeping back to Allah’s distribution of favours.
