Fajr Time

There are numerous deeds that form part of the Sunnah of the Prophet   at Fajr Time. 
Section A of Sunan of Fajr Time: Sunan of Adthān.
Number 1 of ‘Sunan of Adthān’

1- Repeating after the Mu’adthin.

It is Sunnah for one who hears the Adthān to repeat the same words of the Adthān except when the Mu’adthin says { حي على الصلاة } and { حي على الفلاح } where one should say, "لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله" ‘There is neither power nor strength except with Allāh.’ 

‘Umar Ubn Ul-Khattab (ABPWH) narrated that Allāh’s Messenger (PBUH) said,

“If the Mu’adthin says, ‘Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar (Allāh is most Great, Allāh is most Great),’ and one of you says, ‘Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar,’ then he says, ‘Ash-hadu An Lā Ilāha Illa Allāh (I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship except Allāh),’ and one of you says, ‘Ash-hadu An Lā Ilāha Illa Allāh,’ then he says, ‘Ashhadu Anna Muhammadan Rasoolullāh (I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allāh),’ and one of you says, ‘Ashhadu Anna Muhammadan Rasoolullāh,’ then he says, ‘Hayya ‘Ala As-Salāh (Come to prayer),’ and one of says, ‘Lā Hawla wa Lā Quwwata Illā Billāh (There is no power nor strength except with Allāh),’ then he says, ‘Hayya ‘Ala Al-Falāh (Come to success),’ and one of says, ‘Lā Hawla wa Lā Quwwata Illā Billāh,’ then he says, ‘Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar,’ and one of you says, ‘Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar,’ then he says, ‘Lā Ilāha Illa Allāh,’ and one of you says, ‘Lā Ilāha Illa Allāh,’ from the heart, he will enter Paradise.”

(Muslim no. 385) 

Note: When the Mu’adthin says, “As-Salātu Khayrun Min An-Nawm (Prayer is better than sleep),” one who is performing the Sunnah of repeating after the Mu’adthin should say “As-Salātu Khayrun Min An-Nawm,” and this is called At-Tathweeb. 

Number 2 of ‘Sunan of Adthān’

2- Saying the narrated Dthikr after hearing the two testimonies performed by the Mu’adthin.

It is Sunnah to say the following Dthikr after the Mu’adthin says,

“I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allāh,” for the second time. Sa‘d Ubn Abi Waqqāss (ABPWH) narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whoever hears the Mu’adthin and says, ‘Ash-hadu an Lā Ilāha Illa Allāhu Wahdahu Lā Shareeka Lah wa Anna Muhammadan ‘Abduhoo wa Rasooluh. Radheetu Billāhi Rabban wa Bi Muhammadin Rasoolan wa Bil Islāmi Deenā (I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allāh alone, with no partner or associate, and that Muhammad is the His slave and Messenger. I am content with Allāh as my Lord, Muhammad as my Messenger, and Islam as my religion),’ whoever says this on hearing the Adthān, his sins will be forgiven.”

(Muslim no. 386) 

Number 3 of ‘Sunan of Adthān’

3- Sending peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) after the Adthān.

‘Abdullāh Ibn ‘Amr (ABPWH) reported that Allāh’s Messenger (PBUH) said,

“When you hear the Mu’adthin, repeat what he says, then send peace and blessings upon me, for whoever sends peace and blessings upon me once, Allāh will send peace and blessings upon him ten times. Then ask Allāh to grant me Al-Waseelah, for it is a rank in Jannah fitting for only one of Allāh’s servants, and I hope that I may be that one, and whoever asks Allāh Al-Waseelah for me, my Shafā‘ah (Intercession) becomes due to him.”

(Muslim no. 384) 

The best formula of sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the Abrahamic supplication which is,
« ... اللهم صلِّ على محمد وعلى آل محمد ,كما صليت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم »
“O Allāh, send prayers upon Muhammad and his family like You sent prayers upon Ibrāheem and his family ...”, to the end of the Abrahamic supplication.

Number 4 of ‘Sunan of Adthān’

4- Saying the specific Dthikr of Sunnah After the Adthān.

Jābir (ABPWH) narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whoever says the following after hearing the Adthān, deserves my Shafā‘ah (Intercession) on the day of judgment:

« اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ، وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ، آتِ مُحَمَّدًا الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ، وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ » ‘O Allāh, Lord of this perfect call and established prayer, grant Muhammad Al-Waseelah and Al-Fadheelah, and resurrect him in the praiseworthy position you have promised him.’.”

(Al-Bukhāriy no. 614)


Al-Waseelah is a rank in Jannah (Paradise) fitting for only one of Allāh’s servants. Al-Fadheelah means virtue.

Number 5 of ‘Sunan of Adthān’

5- Making Du‘ā’ (Supplication) after the Adthān.

Abdullāh Ibn ‘Amr (ABPWH) narrated,

“A man said to Allāh’s Messenger (PBUH), ‘O Messenger of Allāh. The Mu’adthins are more privileged than us!’ He replied, ‘Say as they say and when you finish ask Allāh and He will respond to your request.’.”

(Abū Dāwood no. 524) 

Moreover, it is narrated by Anass (ABPWH) that the Prophet (PBUH) said,

“Du‘ā’ made between the Adthān and Iqāmah is not rejected.”

(An-Nasā’iy no. 9895)
