I often hear people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I agree because if I personally get that wrong, the knock-on effect can affect my whole day. If I start feeling tired and grumpy from poor food choices it can be hard to rescue it (my days activities) half-way through!
This is the same for our hifdh. One of the best times to read is after or even from before fajr. By the permission of Allaah we will see an amazing difference to our day if we start it with something for His sake. That peaceful feeling can sometimes stay with you for the remaining 12 or so hours , renewed after every salaat. Starting like this also makes us want to do more later on during any other pockets of time we have.
When we start our days thinking about work, money,games, tv, music or some stressful issue or some kind of sin, it can be difficult to find a point in that day to sit and move our focus away from that and towards the Qur’aan. The shaytaan will also aid us in this distraction as it is in his favour (I seek refuge in Allaah from him).
Allaah mentions in suratul Israa ayah 78 : and recite the Quran in the early dawn (i.e. the morning prayer). Verily, the recitation of the Quran in the early dawn is ever witnessed (attended by the angels in charge of mankind of the day and the night).
May Allaah put blessings in our time and enable us to make the most of every second and not waste it without feeling remorse, and may He protect us from being amongst those who feel remorse in the afterlife.
