Hazrat Ibn Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) relates: Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Verily Allah and His Malaa’ikah send Mercy upon those who eat Sehri (Suhoor).” (Tabrani)

“The difference between our fasting and that of the Ahlul-Kitaab (Jews and Christians) lies in our partaking of food at Sehri which they do not.”

“Eat Sehri, because in it lie great blessings.”

“Eat Sehri and strengthen yourself for the fast. And sleep in the afternoon (siesta), so as to gain assistance in waking up in the latter portion of the night (for Ibaadah).”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) in urging us repeatedly for Sehri has said: “Even though there be no food, then one date should be eaten or a drink of water taken.”
