Sakhr bin Wada'ah Al-Ghamidi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "O Allah! Bless my people in the early part of the day (morning). Whenever he dispatched a detachment or an army-unit, he would dispatch it at the beginning of the day (soon after dawn). The narrator, Sakhr (May Allah be pleased with him) was a merchant, and he used to send off his merchandise at the beginning of the day. So his trade flourished and he made a good fortune.

[At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud].

وعن صخر بن وداعة الغامدي الصحابي رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله ﷺ قال: “اللهم بارك لأمتي في بكورها" وكان إذا بعث سرية أو جيشاً بعثهم من أول النهار. وكان صخر تاجراً فكان يبعث تجارته أول النهار، فأثري وكثر ماله” ((رواه أبو داود والترمذي وقال: حديث حسن)).

Ibn 'Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Were people to know of what I know about the dangers of travelling alone, no rider would travel alone at night."


عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال: قال رسول الله ﷺ : "لو أن الناس يعلمون من الوحدة ما أعلم ما سار راكب بليل وحده” ((رواه البخاري)).
