One of the challenges that a Muslim faces when trying to wake up for Fajr every day is the constant shifting of the Fajr prayer. Depending on the season you’re in, it constantly shifts either few minutes forward each day or a few minutes back each day. Thus, it can be difficult to keep up with a varied Fajr schedule throughout the year. So how does one overcome this challenge?

Planning is a major part of our conscious or subconscious preparation for any trip. It doesn’t matter whether this trip is our daily commute to work or school (in this case most likely we will be on “auto pilot” mode and won’t think much about the map), or it may be a road trip to visit our grandparents’ house in another city or state. Even though planning is something highly disliked, and we naturally prefer to allow randomness to take us wherever the flow dictates, there is some element of curiosity in us that invites us to check the major milestones in any journey we take.
