Jazaka'Allahu Khayr for that great idea of going to the masjif for fajr and then staying there until shurook and then praying the 2 rakkah masha'Allah! Both me and my husband plan to do it on Monday 25th December insha'Allah! Lets make dua it will be the first of many!

ARGcomment: Ameen! And of course you don't only have to do it during dhul hijja!

Abu Abdurrahman

Al-Tirmidhi narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever prays Fajr in jamaa’ah, then sits and remembers Allaah until the sun comes up, then prays two rak’ahs, will have a reward like that of Hajj and ‘Umrah.” He said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Complete, complete, complete.” (al-Jumu’ah 535; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 480).

ARGcomment: Jazakallah khair for doing what I was too lazy to do! May Allah make you from the trustworthy narrators and followers of the sunnah. Ameen.

Silly Q: is this the same for a woman? I.e., does the reward only apply for those women who attend the masjid for Fajr in jamaat, or can a woman who normally prays alone at home reap the same reward? If the latter is true, does she have to pray Fajr in the beginning time or can she pray it at any time during the Fajr period and then wait for Shurook?

Jazakallah khair for your help.

Wa'salam

ARGcomment: From what I know the best prayer for the woman is in her home. So inshallah, we hope she will get the same reward, or maybe more, if she does this at home. As for the time, I don't think it has to be from the beginning as this is not stated in the hadith, but Allah know best.
