IMPORTANCE OF DOING SEHRI IN HOLY RAMADAN

Ramadan

Sehri means eating and drinking directly before fajr azan in order to get ready to fast of the day. Blessing comes from ALLAH Almighty and it can not be attained except by obeying ALLAH. It is observed that some people who fast do not give importance of having the Sehri meal and delaying it; they might take a their meal late night or before sleeping at night, because of the doubt that they may not wake up for sehri or because they desire to sleep much longer, or their ignorance from the blessing of sehri.

This is a big mistake and it must be avoided as it contradicts the Sunnah of Prophet (PBUH) and deprives of the great blessings of Sehri. A Muslim who intends to do fast should have to do Sehri, Suhoor has numerous benefits and great blessings. Among the great blessings of Suhoor is that it gives the power and strength that is required to perform fast, acts of obedience, helps in performing obligatory and voluntree acts of worship and increases person’s stamina and ability to do work. Waking up for Sehri is a reason for obtaining great bounties and attaining the various blessings of ALLAH Almighty and seeking forgiveness from ALLAH.
Furthermore, one of the great blessings of doing Sehri is that it makes it more easy for Muslim to answer the call to Fajr namaz, and it also has great rewards. It helps in performing the Fajr namaz on time with congregation. Besides, a Muslim who intends to fast take Sehri, he will not get tired of doing fast; rather, he will be excited for fasting. On the other hand, those people who do not take Sehri find really hardship during the fast. Among all the blessings and bounties of Sehri is that ALLAH Almighty places goodness and physical benefits in the activities of the one who take Sehri, so the person is guided for doing good deeds throughout the day of fast.

Muslim finds the great energy to perform voluntary and obligatory acts of worship, enjoin good activities and talk and forbid evil deeds and so on. Otherwise, if a person avoid taking sehri and does not take Suhoor, whole day fasting becomes very difficult for him to perform all the worldly and spiritual activities.

In summing up, the blessings of doing Sehri are too many to be counted and every Muslim who intends to do fast should take sehri. In Islamic Shariah, there is a great secret and wisdom that are astounding to the minds, and these are realizes by only few.

Verse 3:17 of Holy Quran,

The patient, the true, the obedient, those who spend [in the way of ALLAH], and those who seek forgiveness before dawn.
