Hadith

Excellence of the Fajr and ‘Asr Prayers

Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه reported:

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, There are angels who take turns in visiting you by night and by day, and they all assemble at the dawn (Fajr) and the afternoon (‘Asr) prayers. Those who have spent the night with you, ascend (to the heaven) and Allah, Who knows better about them, asks: “In what condition did you leave My slaves?” They reply: “We left them while they were performing Salat and we went to them while they were performing Salat.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
