DAY 24: Soorah Ikhlaas & Kafiroon

Soorah Ikhlaas & Kafiroon

Ibn al-Qayyim -Rahimahullaah- said:

‘I heard Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah saying:
‘The Sunnah of Fajr follows the path of the first of the actions [of the day] and the Witr prayer is the seal.

This is why the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- used to pray the Sunnah of Fajr and the Witr with the Two Soorahs of Ikhlaas [Soorah Ikhlaas and Kafiroon]

These two Soorahs are comprehensive of Tawheed of knowledge and action, and Tawheed of knowing about Allaah [Rooboobeeyah & Asmaa wa Sifaat] and intention [worship] and Tawheed of Belief and intent of worship for Allaah [Eelaheeyah].
