Sakhr al-Ghamidi narrates that the Prophet said: “O Allah, bless my Ummah in their early mornings.” And when he would dispatch an army, he would send them at the beginning of the day. Sakhr was a merchant, and he would send off his caravans at the beginning of the day; due to which he became rich and affluent. (Abu Da’ūd)
One of the things we all struggle with is trying to get more out of our busy schedules to fit in all the important things we want to do in the day. But sometimes it seems like there’s just not enough time in the day. It feels that the day is flying by and you are in a race to the finish to try to get things done. In this prophetic life hack, our Beloved Messenger informs us of an amazing tip that if implemented, would get us more out of our day than we could ever imagine. And that tip is: to take benefit from the mornings.
Try and prioritize your most important works in the morning –after fajr, if possible. Morning time seems like pretty much any other time of the day, but it is actually a special time. It is blessed with the du’a and special prayer of the Messenger of Allah . Like a rubber band that can stretch three times its limit even though its actual size is far less, time also stretches in the morning, due to the blessed du’a of the Prophet. And in this way, we can do more in a shorter period of time. May Allah enable us to implement this beneficial prophetic advice.
