A follow up query regarding the translation of a narration on the virtue of Surah Ikhlas

Question

Regarding my question on the translation of this:

من قرأ قل هو الله أحد عشر مرات في دبر كل صلاة الغداة لم يلحق به ذلك اليوم ذنب، وإن جهد الشيطان

You have translated it as:

“Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu’anhu) said: ‘Whoever recites Surah ikhlas ten times daily after Fajr, will not fall into sin on that day, even if Shaytan tries his utmost [to lure him to do so].

But my question is why isn’t the word “Fajr”  mentioned in the orginal Arabic text because I don’t see this word mentioned in it.

Kindly see the previous question here.
