Salaam, I would like to know if waking up for sehri is a sunnah or mustahab?

Also, is it true that you must eat something at sehri or is it ok if one only has a cup of tea at sehri?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

1) To partake in Suhur and to delay it until Subah Sadiq (break of dawn) is Mustahab (peferable). (Nurul Idhah Pg. 148)

2) To partake in a pre-dawn meal is called Suhur. It is recommended to eat etc, during this time.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
