Partaking of sehri is a sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and a means of attaining great barakah and rewards. Hazrath Anas (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Partake of sehri for verily in sehri is much barakah (blessings)” (Sahih Bukhari. In another narration Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has stressed the partaking of sehri by proclaiming: “Sehri is entirely barakah. Hence do not omit it even if you just take a sip of water, for verily Allah Ta’ala and His angels send blessings upon those who partake of sehri” (Targheeb).
