Narrated `Aisha:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to offer eleven rak`at and that was his prayer. He used to prolong the prostration to such an extent that one could recite fifty verses (of the Qur’an) before he would lift his head. He used to pray two rak`at (Sunna) before the Fajr prayer and then used to lie down on his right side till the call-maker came and informed him about the prayer.

[Sahih Al Bukhari Vol 19 Hadith 3]

  1. If there is something you want in life and you are not praying tahajjud for it you don’t really want it.” — Shaykh Yasir Qadhi

    ”The Dua made at tahajjud is like an arrow that does not miss its target.” — Imaam Ash Shafi (ra)

    Get up to pray in the dark when all are asleep and see how your path is lit and your life begins to shine. #Tahajjud

    Many people talk about Allah but very few talk to Allah. Bring Tahajjud and Du’a into your life and talk to Him.

    If there is something you want to ask Allah, start praying tahajjud.

    Tahajjud time is on even 15 mins before fajr so if you are a heavy sleeper you should try waking up atleast 20 mins before fajr and offer tahajjud.

    Raise your hands in dua in tahajjud + be consistent, Allah loves hearing our duas.

    Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) said,

    “The best prayer after the obligatory prayers is the night prayer.” [Sahih Muslim]

    Benefits of Tahajjud (The Night Prayer):

    1 – Implementing the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi was sallam) which he never use to miss

    2 – A way of getting your Dua’s accepted

    3 – A way of getting your sins forgiven

    4 – By performing it, it will bring light to your face and soul

    5 – It helps you fight your desires

    6 – It makes you closer to Allah

    7 – It builds the love of the Hereafter in your heart

    8 – It softens the heart and humbles you in front of Allah

    9 – It strengthens the Qur’an that you have memorised

    Narrated Abu Huraira (Radiallahu anhu): Allah’s Apostle (Peace be upon him) said, “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?” [Bukhari]

    Spread the knowledge so it will be Sadqa-e-Jaaria (everlasting charity) for you In’Shaa’Allah.

    The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action.” [Muslim 1893]
