The Fajr of all fajrs

It’s sad but it is nice.
Sad coz I don’t get to do it often.
Nice coz it is something to behold and take in.
The time of fajr.
Walking to our nearby masjid and seeing three to four rows filled with ‘fasted’ people, is a sure sight to behold and take in. Enjoyable and ‘peaceful’ almost.
At least, most of us get the ‘training’ aspect of Ramdhaan right.
The early morning has more than just the morning prayer attached to it, by the way.
It is an excellent time to practice photography and how light plays up your subject with every passing minute. Also the perfect time to visit capri or inner Lahore for that hot halwa pori and that cold glass of lassi. Also the perfect time to start that freakin cricket match on a Sunday!
It is also the time when almost 90 percent of all successful people start their day.(success, understandably a relative terms, in either financially, physically, spiritually or variation thereof – and these are published research figures, not just armchair research).
It is also the time Nature ‘restarts’, in its monotonous-but-never-the-same way. And the Quran is quite clear that in the ‘hide and seek’ of the Sun and the Moon, and the rising of the day and the blanket of the night, therein is one of the biggest signs of God. As far as I am concerned, the sign is routine. Why? Refer to successful people starting their day with the Sun itself.
So, when do you start your day?

    you can call it routine, yes. but it’s more than just a routine. routine is what you see at a first glance.

    Sometimes there are clouds in the sky and you don’t get to see the sun until later in the day. Well, you can say my start of the day is something like that!
