Invocations for the beginning of the prayer

“اللَّهُمَّ بَاعِدْ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ خَطَايَايَ كَمَا بَاعَدْتَ بَيْنَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ، اللَّهُمَّ نَقِّنِي مِنْ خَطَايَايَ، كَمَا يُنَقَّى الثَّوْبُ الْأَ بْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ، اللَّهُمَّ اغْسِلْنِي مِنْ خَطَايَايَ بِالثَّلْجِ وّالْمَاءِ وَالْبَرَدِ”.

O Allah , separate me from my sins as You have separated the East from the West. O Allah, cleanse me of my transgressions as the white garment is cleansed of stains . O Allah , wash away my sins with ice and water and frost.

If only we the parents and future parents could teach our children from the young age the importance of waking up for solatul fajr, by means that we need to train our ownselves by waking up early for fajr and make sure that we don’t miss any by overslept. Hence we are the perfect role models for these children.

Fajr is a blessings, that is when the rizqi, the nikmah, the sustenance from Allah coming in into our homes. Let us make the next generation the better generation! Insya Allah. Ameen.
