Strategies to Help You Wake Up for Tahajjud.

All praise be to Allah.

In this article we will try to figure out some strategies that may help anyone who is struggling to wake up for Tahajjud or Fajr. For some waking up early is the most difficult task of the day and they do not wake up untill the crack of the dawn. This happens when a person feels deprived from the lack of sleep or enveloped in the fear of missing out on something from the night before.

Here are some strategies or tips that we hope can help you In sha Allah

1. Drink lot of water before bed. Why? Because drinking a lot of water will cause you to wake up for pee in the earliest time thus waking you up and making you get out of the bed. In such a case your body doesnt slip in the sleep from which it becomes difficult to wake up. Also, when you are up you move out of your bed and thus it will be much easier to get ready for the prayer.

2. Get rid of all distractions at least 1 hour before sleeping. Put your phone to sleep and prevent all calls or notification until the next morning. There is an app i use for that. Reading has a way of cleansing the mind, inspiring, and entertaining. But it also has a way of making you feel sleepy as long as it’s not done with a screen. Find a good physical book that you can read before bedtime. What other book is better than reading the Qur'an.

3. Avoid foods that are known to keep you awake like caffeine.

4. Use puzzle alarms. Yes, download and install the puzzle alarm that will only stop blaring when you have solved the puzzle. Having an alarm clock is a vital part of waking up early. In fact, most of us can’t seem to wake up without an alarm clock, especially those of us who simply aren’t morning persons. But, an alarm clock is only so useful when it can be quickly turned off.It’s easy to reach for that snooze button and drift right back off to sleep. But how do we avoid doing that?

Use your Puzzle alarm clock. Use the Rooster Alarm as the default sound .It wokes magic. After setting the time for tahajjud, place it a good distance away from the bed. This means when it keeps ringing you have to wake up , stand up, walk up to the alarm clock and solve a complex mathemactics puzzle.

There are numerous Puzzle apps that can help you wake up in the morning.

May Allaah make it easy for us to wake up for tahajjud and fajr.

And Allah is the source of strength.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer.

An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it.
