‘Do not ever stop praying the night prayer (Tahajjud). The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam never ceased praying it. When he was sick or weak, he prayed sitting.’ [Bukhari]

 

Benefits. ‘You should pray the night prayer, for it is the habit of the righteous people who came before you, and it will bring you closer to your Lord, expiate for bad deeds, prevent sin, and expel disease from the body.’ [Tirmidhi]
 
Goodness. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said to Mu'adh Ibn Jabal radhiallahu anhu: ‘May I show you the gates of goodness?' (they are), a) Fasting is screen from Hell, b) Charity extinguishes sins, as water extinguishes fire, c) Standing in prayer by a slave of Allah during the last third part of a night.’ [Abu Dawood]
 
Best Prayer. ‘The best of prayer after those prescribed (i.e. obligatory prayer) is that in the depth of night.’ [Muslim]
 
Mercy. ‘May Allah have mercy on a man who wakes up at night, prays, and wakes his wife to pray; and if she refuses, he sprinkles water on her face. And may Allah have mercy on a woman who wakes up at night, prays, and wakes her husband to pray; and if he refuses, she sprinkles water on his face.’ [Abu Dawood]
 
Good Deeds. ‘Whoever prays the night prayer reciting 10 verses, he will not be recorded among the negligent. Whoever prays the night prayer reciting 100 verses, he will be recorded among the devout. And whoever prays the night prayer reciting 1,000 verses, he will be recorded among those with a multitude of good deeds. [Abu Dawood]
