Sunnah 76: Tahajjud/Qiyaam prayer

July 5, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Pray during the night while the others sleep and you will enter Paradise in peace.” [Hakim]

Tahajjud prayers are one of the most important voluntary prayers. Once the Prophet (pbuh) was asked: “What prayer is most virtuous, after the obligatory prayers? He said, “Prayer in the depths of the night.” [Muslim & others]  In a hadith qudsi, it is reported that Allah descends to the lowest heaven during the last third of the night, inquiring: ‘Who will call on Me so that I may respond to him? Who is asking something of Me so I may give it to him? Who is asking for My forgiveness so I may forgive him?’ [Bukhari]

It’s a great way to prepare for Ramadan! Read more about the tahajjud prayers here.
