that even eating before dawn for fasting is so greatly rewarded.
There are many Ahadith in which the virtues of Sahoor are explained
and the rewards promised. Allama al-Ainee-the commentator
Saheeh of Bukhari has quoted the virtues of Sahoor from seventeen
different Sahabah and all the Ulama are agreed on its being referred.
Many people are deprived of this great reward because of their own
laziness. Some even go so far as to finish Taraweeh,
eat some food in lieu of Sahoor and go to bed.
What great blessing do they lose! Because Sahoor actually means
food eaten shortly before dawn.
