It gives the fasting person strength to effectively perform the fast.



عن أنس، رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول ﷺ : "تسحروا فان في السحور بركة" ((متفق عليه))

Anas (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhu) reported that the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) said: "Take the pre-dawn meal for verily in  that meal (al-Ṣuḥūr) are blessings" (Agreed upon: al-Bukhārī and Muslim)

 

  1. In it is the blessing of obeying the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ). 
  2. It gives the fasting person strength to effectively perform the fast. This is especially important for the fasting child or young adult.
  3. The worshipper has another opportunity to give charity and feed those that will need food at that time. This is an opportunity to get reward in giving the pre dawn meal to the poor and destitute.
  4. It is a means to be awake in that blessed period when the supplications are accepted. Some of the people of knowledge have mentioned that the middle of  the night comes under pre-dawn.
  5. It can be a means of maintaining good conduct. If the fasting person is extremely hungry, he or she might show some bad manners due to hunger pangs (It helps the fasting person exercise patience and not be agitated throughout the day by the permission of Allāh).
  6. By default, one's intention for the coming fasting day is renewed. This allows him or her to escape the difference of opinion regarding whether one has to have an intention for every single fasting day or not. Eating the pre-dawn meal keeps the fasting person on the safe side of caution.
  7. It helps give the fasting person more enthusiasm for the fasting day.
  8. A single pre-dawn meal can keep the fasting person going until sunset. Whereas on a normal day, he or she would usually have had three or four meals during the course of the day.
