At dawn, when most of the world, is asleep,
An angel of Allah whispered from the 'deep',
"God's loved ones bask in His Light,
That's why 'prayer' is better than 'sleep''.

DAWN PRAYER: The first prayer of the Muslims, before sunrise, at the crack of dawn each day -- they are reminded via the azaan (Call to prayer from mosques) that "Prayer is better than sleep".
