Have you ever felt that you had a non-productive and lazy day, when you missed waking up for Fajr Salah and slept late till morning? There is a feeling of sadness, unproductivity, procrastination and somewhat loss of Barakah in the day, when you start your day late in the morning.
Who doesn’t want to spend a productive day, in which all the tasks are completed with ease? A day, in which you can feel Allah’s (swt) blessings, help and mercy are with you. You do not feel lazy and do not procrastinate. Well, the good news is – such a day is not a dream anymore!
Here are some tips to help make your dream day become a reality, Insha’Allah! The more regularly and completely you follow these, the more blessed day it will be.
- Wake up for Tahajjud
Set your alarm 20 to 25 minutes before Fajr, so you get hold of the most precious time of the night– the Tahajjud time! Preferably, offer Tahajjud prayer. If you are unable, then at least pour your heart out in making lots of Duas knowing that:
“The Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the night remains and says: ‘Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?’” (Bukhari and Muslim)
Seek forgiveness for your sins, make sincere and heartfelt repentance with a belief that Allah (swt) will forgive you and know that seeking forgiveness opens unimaginable ways for Barakah in life as well. Pour your heart out in Dua. Do not hold back –make Dua for all that is bothering you, for all that you wish in life. Pray for a blessed day ahead and be ready to have a blessed day, because you know that Allah (swt) always responds to what you ask for, especially in Tahajjud!
