The morning atkhar are a must even for lay Muslims let alone students!
Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer. Especially this one 100 times.
When does the morning time for the athkar begin? It starts at the beginning time of Fajr and ends at a preferred time of sunrise. However, if one forgets and so on, it can be done after that.
