Revive A Sunnah

In the name of Allah
Revive a Sunnah: Starting Your Day with Four Rak'at

Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) narrated:

The Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) narrated that Allah the Most High said: “Son of Adam perform four Rak’at for Me in the beginning of the day; they will suffice you for the latter part of the day.”

Collected by At-Tirmidhi, 475; Abu Dawud, 1291; and Ahmad, 2/235 - Tirmidhi classed it as Hasan.

1. Al-Mubarakfuri (rahimahullah) said: “Rak’at for Me in the beginning of the day… Means: Salatul Duha, Salatul Ishraq, and Sunnatus Subh. These are the names for this prayer.

2. At-Taybee said, “These four Rak’at are enough for your affairs and needs throughout the day [to be made easy]. These four Rak’at repel from you whatever you dislike right through the day. [Tuhfatul Ahwadhee]

3. Ibn Al-Arabee (rahimahullah) said, “Salatul Duha is the prayer of the Prophets before Muhammad (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam). Allah says, 'Our Praises with him [Dawud] in the Ashi [after the midday until sunset] and Ishraq [sunrise till mid-day]“ (38:18) - [Shark al Jam’i At-Tirmidhi]

And Allah knows best.
