Ramadan 6: Stay up at night

September 2, 2010

A’isha (ra) said: The Prophet (pbuh) would pray and sleep during the 20 days [of Ramadan], then during the ten [last nights] he would stay awake and tighten his belt. [Ahmad]

What is understood from staying awake at night is staying up for most of it, as A’isha also said, “I did not know of Allah’s Messenger praying the whole night until morning.” [Muslim]
