How do you wake up for Fajr? Do you have a Fajr buddy? Does your mum wake you up? Do you get water chucked into your face? HAve you ever been woken with a slap? So yeah, share ideas people...

Sleeping on something like the floor usually helps btw, because you arnt as comfortable, you arnt in as deep a sleep, so yeah, try that...

well, there's always one thing that wakes me up, the anticipation of listening/reading Quraan after waking, just feels as tho you gain something more than sleep...

Also, I play this call loud as I switch on my PC, although it isn't 'Salaatul Qiyaam' at that time, but I love that call to prayer they do in Makkah just before Taraweeh starts...:wub: :'(

I could upload it somewhere....but where?

All tested...I used to miss Eshas and fajrs, until recently, I got into the habit of reading on time (I love my grand dad :wub:)...And today, was one of those days where Esha and fajr was completed.....Zuhr was such a peace of mind...

Cos I make up during Zuhr time! :(

DUA TO ASSIST ONE IN AWAKENING FOR TAHAJJUD /Fajr

A person remarked to
Abdullah bin Abbas [radhiyallahu anhu],
"I always intend awakening in the last portion of the night to perform Salaat but
sleep overpowers me."
Ibne Abbas [radhiyallahu anhu] replied,
"Before sleeping recite from "QUL LAW KANAL BAHRU MIDADAL..." to the end of Surah
Kahf.
Allah Ta'ala will waken you at whatever time you intend rising."
[Tha'labi-Ma'ariful Quraan vol 51 ]


One could also use this method to wake up for Fajr Salaah)


Verse 109 / 110 Surah 18 – Surah Kahf should be recited before sleeping intending in your mind what time you wish to wake up, having full trust on Allah. It has been the experience of our pious predecessors that this was very effective in awakening a person who read it at the actual time desired.
If u make it ur intention before u go bed to wake up for fajr then u wake up, supplicate to Allah before u sleep that he helps u n he will.

It was narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever forgets a prayer or sleeps and misses it, the expiation for that is to pray it when he remembers it.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (572) and Muslim (684).

This hadeeth indicates that the one who sleeps is not accountable during the time of his sleep, and there is consensus on this point.

The apparent meaning of the hadeeth is that there is no negligence in sleep if a person sleeps before the time for prayer begins or after that but before the time becomes too short. And it was said that if a person deliberately goes to sleep before the time becomes too short and he takes that as a means of not praying because he thinks it most likely that he will not wake up until the time for the prayer is over, then he is sinning. But the apparent meaning is that there is no sin on him because of sleeping, because he did that at a time when it was permissible to do it, so he is included in this hadeeth. But if he did it deliberately in order to miss the prayer, then there is no doubt that he is sinning thereby.
my husband wakes me up for fajr or sometimes i wake him up n we both try n set our alarms but sometimes i dnt because my alarm is annoying n my husbands aint so i leave it to him to set which is bad really cuz i shud take my own measures n not rely on him. its harder for married couples to get up for fajr cuz u have to have a bath n the thought of havin a bath at 3 am is a bit off putting n its easy to think forgetttt it n fall back to sleep astagfirullah may Allah swt forgive us, and giv us the abillity to wake up ameen.

Just drink - lots of water. You'll get up in the middle of the night - it'll be fajr time!

alarm clock. I'm easy to wake up because my ear is too sensitive. When I was in campus years, if I slept at 10.00 PM and at 3.00 AM my roomate ask where did I put my notes etc, I can hear it and answer back while closing my eyes. I can listen everything while sleeping - frogs, dogs and of course those mysterious sounds too.

Put your alarm clock or whatever you use at the other side of the room and in order to switch it off you'll have to get up & insha' Allah you should be awake then

I know! I remember how the azan would wake me up in the morning and i'd just sit their listening to it.... I'ts so beautiful hearing the azan in the morning, especially the part that means 'prayer is better that sleep'.

or u can strap 2 phones around your head preferably next to your ears and wait for the alarms to come on, may be a touch uncomfortable, but hey you'll get used 2 it...erm ok maybe not lol
but if all else fails, just place 2 or even 3 phones next to your bed and by the time you press 'snooze' or 'stop' on each phone you'll be in total outrage, y? because somehow the alarms comes on again!!! ( i think i may have pressed the snooze there LOL)
OR drink plenty of red bull and coffee and just dont sleeep!!!:happy: i'm a bright spark arnt i :rollseyes
peace out

I usually set my alarm on this vibrate tone thingy, and it gives you such a fright that you wake up!

But now its summer, Fajr starts really early wher i live- around 1.18am so I just stay up and pray and then sleep.

put your alarm on, try get people to wake you up via physically or on your phone insha Allah. fajr salah is a big test for us, will we wake up and fulfil Allahs obligation of will we fail and obey shaytaan? be strong insha Allah. once you wake up for fajr, you will fing it easier to wake up afterwards once you have put in into a routine. eveyhardship follows wit ease so Allah will make things aesy for us all.
