Importance of Sehri in Ramadan – The word ‘’Sehri’’ comes from Persian and is also known as Sahur or Suhoor in Arabic word. It is the meal taken by Muslims early in the morning before fasting is known as Sehri. This meal is taken before Fajr (Morning) prayer and is the last meal before fasting. Sehri offers strength for worship of Allah and causes greater sincerity in the worship (ibadat) of Allah.
Sehri is very important because it avoids weakness caused by the fast. In the past, people were awakened by beating drums while roaring on the roads and streets. The man is known as ‘’Musahrati’’ must have good health and voice. Now, the modern method is setting off an alarm in mobile phones. Generally, people get up at 3:30 A.M in sehri.
