A forgotten Sunnah

Lying down on one’s right side after the two voluntary units before Fajr

On the authority of Abū Hurairah -may Allāh be pleased with him-:

The Prophet ﷺ said:

((إذا صلى أحدكم ركعتي الفجر فليضطجع على شقه الأيمن))

“When one of you offers the two voluntary units before Fajr, let him lie on his right side.”

[Reported by Abu Dāwūd (1261) & Tirmithi (420)]

Graded Ṣaḥīḥ by Sheikh Albāni in Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Jāmi’

On the authority of our mother, Ā’ishah -may Allāh be pleased with her-:

“Whenever the Prophet ﷺ offered the two voluntary units of Fajr, he would converse with me if I was awake, otherwise he would lie down on his right side.”

[Reported by Bukhāri 1161]

NOTE:

If you’re going to implement this Sunnah, be careful not to doze off and miss Ṣalātul Fajr – especially if you’ve been up all night praying Tarāwīḥ.
