Question

Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullaah ... Dear Shaikh, Please advice if we can recite the Azkaar-as-Sabaah before offering the Fajr prayer at the mosque? Jazaak Allah Khairan

 

Answer

 All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The mention of Allah said in the morning is among the mention which is restricted by time, and its time starts from the beginning of the morning; the evidence about this is the saying of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) "when he has reached the morning", meaning when the morning starts, and the time of the morning extends until sunrise as established by the scholars  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  them. Therefore, the time of any mention of Allah which is mentioned in a Prophetic narration restricted by being said in the morning starts at the beginning of the morning.

Therefore, it is permissible to say the morning mention of Allah after the beginning of the time of Fajr and before the Fajr prayer, but its best time is after the Fajr prayer. An-Nawawi  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him said: "The best time for the mention of Allah during the day is the mention after the Fajr prayer."

Allah Knows best.
