With regard to sitting after Fajr prayer until the sun rises then praying two rakaat, it is narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“Whoever prays Fajr in congregation then sits remembering Allah until the sun rises, then prays two rakaat, will have a reward like that of Hajj and ‘Umrah, complete, complete, complete.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (586).
Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy on him) :classed it as hasan in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi.
Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked about it and he said:
This hadeeth has some isnads with which there is nothing wrong, thus it is regarded as hasan li ghayrihi (hasan because of corroborating evidence), and it is mustahabb to offer this prayer after the sun has risen to the height of a spear, i.e., approximately fifteen or twenty minutes after sunrise. End quote from Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz (25/171).
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: It says in the hadeeth,
“The one who sits in the place where he prayed after Fajr prayer until the sun rises, it will be like a complete, complete Hajj and ‘umrah,” or words to that effect. Does this mean that the one who does that will have the reward like that of Hajj and ‘umrah, or what does it mean?
Firstly: this hadeeth is subject to further discussion. Many scholars classed it as daeef (weak).
Secondly: if we assume that it is saheeh, the reward of Allah is not subject to analogy. A person may be rewarded greatly for a small deed, because the reward is a bounty from Allah that He gives to whomsoever He will. End quote from al-Liqa’ al-Shahri (74/22).
Sekadar perkongsian dengan rakan-rakan yang membaca, pelbagai pendapat ulamak berkenaan dengan solat fajr ini. Namun apa yang diharapkan ialah, jadilah kita sebagai ummat yang sentiasa mengingati Allah bermula dari kita bangun pagi-pagi sehinggalah ke tidur malam kita. Kekuatan kita adalah bergantung kepada sekuat mana pegangan kita kepada Allah. Jika pegangan kita rapuh bagai kayu reput yang dimakan anai-anai, maka tandanya hati kita sakit dan penyakitnya adalah anai-anai yang memakannya sedikit demi sedikit, namun jika pegangan kita utuh dan kukuh umpama besian konkrit yang teguh, maka ia akan bertahan hingga tiba masa untuknya runtuh. Fikir-fikirkan.
