The Fajr prayer (Arabic: صلاة الفجرṣalāt al-faǧr,  “dawn prayer”)

is the first of the five daily prayers offered by practising Muslims.

(Fajr means dawn in the Arabic language.)

The five daily prayers collectively form one pillar

of the Five Pillars of Islam, in Sunni Islam,

and one of the ten Practices of the Religion (Furū al-Dīn) according to Shia Islam.
