  Before dawn
by DunaKal

Unlike the Grand mosque in Makkah where it`s open 24 hours around the clock,the prophet`s mosque closes it`s gates after the (isha) night prayers,then re-open about half an hour before the (fajr)dawn prayers.
If you wish to do additional night prayers(Kiyam al layl)then try to go to bed as early as possible then wake up at 3:00am,head to the mosque for reading Quran and praying until the Azan (prayer calls)is announced.
