Prophet Muhammad SAW said: “O Allah, in Your Name I die and I live (Allāhumma bismika amūtu wa aḥyā).” And when he would wake, he would say: “Allah praise is due to Allah who revived my soul after causing its death and to Him is the resurrection (Al-ḥamdulillāh, alladhī aḥyā nafsī ba`da mā amātahā wa ilaihin-nushūr).” [Tirmidhi]

O people who gather (Prophet Muhammad), wake up (for prayer) at night, except for a small part, (ie) half of it, less than that, or more than (half) of it. Read the Qur’an slowly.” (QS 73:1-4)

5. Pray Fajr Salah

Fajr salah is the obligatory morning prayer made up of 2 rakat fard along with 2 rakat sunnah, which spiritually connects the believer to God at the start of each day.

Muslim (657) narrated that Jundub ibn ‘Abd-Allaah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever prays Fajr is under the protection of Allaah, so do not fall short with regard to the rights of Allaah, for anyone who does that, Allaah will seize him and will throw him on his face into the Fire of Hell.”

It is already mentioned in the Quran surah Al A’raf verse 31 below.

 يٰبَنِيْٓ اٰدَمَ خُذُوْا زِيْنَتَكُمْ عِنْدَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وَّكُلُوْا وَاشْرَبُوْا وَلَا تُسْرِفُوْاۚ اِنَّهٗ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِيْنَ ࣖ ٣١

Ishraq prayer is an optional or nafl prayer that Muslims can offer in the late morning hours. It consists of 2 or 4 rakat prayers which are performed sometime after the sunrise once it has risen considerably high.

I (Imam al-Tirmidhi) asked Muhammad bin Ismaeel (Imam al-Bukhari) about Abi Dhilal. He said, his narrations are reasonable. (Tirmidhi, 586).

10. Make a Plan

Making a plan for a day that you will be getting through is one of the morning habits in the Islamic way that you can apply. This routine will make your day easier with a great plan behind it.

You may already have in mind a thing to do towards the day onward. If you start with a plan then you will be facing your work more than ready without planning it at all. Moreover, Allah has already mentioned it in the Quran surah Al Anfal verse 60 below.

وَاَعِدُّوْا لَهُمْ مَّا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِّنْ قُوَّةٍ وَّمِنْ رِّبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُوْنَ بِهٖ عَدُوَّ اللّٰهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَاٰخَرِيْنَ مِنْ دُوْنِهِمْۚ لَا تَعْلَمُوْنَهُمْۚ اَللّٰهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْۗ وَمَا تُنْفِقُوْا مِنْ شَيْءٍ فِيْ سَبِيْلِ اللّٰهِ يُوَفَّ اِلَيْكُمْ وَاَنْتُمْ لَا تُظْلَمُوْنَ ٦٠

“Prepare for (face) them what you can, in the form of strength (which you have) and cavalry. With it (the preparation) you make fear of Allah’s enemies, your enemies, and those beside them whom you do not know, (but) Allah knows. Whatever you spend in the way of Allah will surely be repaid to you in full, while you will not be wronged.” (QS 8:60)

So, there are some of the morning habits in the Islamic way that you can apply to your daily routine in the morning. Most of them are based on the Quran, which is useful for you. May Allah give you His blessing and mercy.
