According to Imam al-Sadiq (a.s): “ Stated in Imam Ali’s book (or letter) that praising comes before asking. So, when you pray to Allah, glorify Him first.” “How is that done?” I asked.

O You who like Him there is naught”. [Reference: Makarim al-Akhlaq]

Imam al-Baqir (a.s) said: “ From among His faithful servants, Almighty Allah favors most the one who prays frequently; then, seize the opportunity to invoke Allah just before daybreak till sunrise, for at this time the heaven’s gates are opened, the livelihoods are apportioned and the great wishes are fulfilled.” [Reference: Makarim al-Akhlaq]
