If a woman purified herself in Ramadhaan before the adhaan of Fajr, is she required to fast?
Ayyoob as-Sikhtiyaanee would secretly stand the night in prayer, and when dawn came he would raise his voice as if [to suggest to his family] he had just awoken.
Sa’eed ibn ‘Abdul-‘Azeez used to stand the night in prayer, and when the time of Fajr entered he would renew his wudhoo and leave [home] for the masjid.
Every night, Wakee’ ibn al-Jarraah would not sleep until he had read a third of the Qur.aan. Then, during the last [third] of the night he would stand in prayer and recite the al-Mufassal. He would then sit and engage in seeking forgiveness (al-istighfaar) until the arrival of Fajr.
