Do you take Suhoor?

The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) commanded that whoever wants to fast must take the Sahoor (pre-dawn meal).

He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

مَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَصُومَ فَلْيَتَسَحَّرْ بِشَيْءٍ

“Whoever wishes to fast, then let him eat something for Sahoor.” [Ibn Abi Shaibah, Ahmad and others]

And he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) also said:

تسحروا فإن في السحور بركة

“Take the Sahoor because in the Sahoor is Barakah (blessings).”[Bukhaaree and Muslim]

Then he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) also prohibited the Muslims from neglecting it. 

He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

فهو الغداء المبارك ، وفيه مخالفة لأهل الكتاب

“What differentiates our fast from the fast of the People of the Book is the Sahoor meal.” [Ibn Abi Shaibah, Ahmad]
