One of the distinct memories I have growing up is, at the time of suhoor, my mom coming into my bedroom and stuffing apples and dates and water into my mouth before the time for Fajr would come in.

The first is that you’re listening to an advice of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him); you are expressing your love for him by waking up early to listen to him instead of just sleeping away.
