Book Twenty One–Prayer at Night (Tahajjud)


Hadith Number 221.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): When the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) got up at night to offer the Tahajjud prayer, he used to say: Allahumma lakal-hamd. Anta qaiyimus-samawati wal-ard wa man fihinna. Walakal-hamd, Laka mulkus-samawati wal-ard wa man fihinna. Walakal-hamd, anta nurus-samawati wal-ard. Walakalhamd, anta-l-haq wa wa'duka-l-haq, wa liqa'uka Haq, wa qualuka Haq, wal-jannatu Han wan-naru Haq wannabiyuna Haq. Wa Muhammadun, sallal-lahu'alaihi wasallam, Haq, was-sa'atu Haq. Allahumma aslamtu Laka wabika amantu, wa 'Alaika tawakkaltu, wa ilaika anabtu wa bika khasamtu, wa ilaika hakamtu faghfir li ma qaddamtu wama akh-khartu wama as-rartu wama'a lantu, anta-l-muqaddim wa anta-l-mu akh-khir, la ilaha illa anta (or la ilaha ghairuka). (O Allah! All the praises are for you, You are the Holder of the Heavens and the Earth, And whatever is in them. All the praises are for You; You have the possession of the Heavens and the Earth And whatever is in them. All the praises are for You; You are the Light of the Heavens and the Earth And all the praises are for You; You are the King of the Heavens and the Earth; And all the praises are for You; You are the Truth and Your Promise is the truth, And to meet You is true, Your Word is the truth And Paradise is true And Hell is true And all the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam)s (Peace be upon them) are true; And Muhammad is true, And the Day of Resurrection is true. O Allah ! I surrender (my will) to You; I believe in You and depend on You. And repent to You, And with Your help I argue (with my opponents, the non-believers) And I take You as a judge (to judge between us). Please forgive me my previous And future sins; And whatever I concealed or revealed And You are the One who make (some people) forward And (some) backward. There is none to be worshipped but you. Sufyan said that 'Abdul Karim Abu Umaiya added to the above, 'Wala haula Wala quwata illa billah' (There is neither might nor power except with Allah).


Hadith Number 222.

Narrated by Salim's father (Radhi Allahu Anhu): In the life-time of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) whosoever saw a dream would narrate it to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam). I had a wish of seeing a dream to narrate it to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam), I was a grown up boy and used to sleep in the Masjid in the life-time of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam). I saw in the dream that two angels caught hold of me and took me to the Fire which was built all round like a built well and had two poles in it and the people in it were known to me. I started saying, "I seek refuge with Allah from the Fire." Then I met another angel who told me not to be afraid. I narrated the dream to Hafsa (Radhi Allahu Anha) who told it to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam). The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Abdullah is a good man. I wish he prayed Tahajjud." After that 'Abdullah (i.e. Salim's father) used to sleep but a little at night.


Hadith Number 223.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) used to offer eleven Rakat 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 Rakat (Sunnah) 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.


Hadith Number 224.

Narrated by Jundab (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) became sick and did not get up (for Tahajjud prayer) for a night or two.


Hadith Number 225.

Narrated by Jundab bin 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Jibril did not come to the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) (for some time) and so one of the Quraish women said, "His Satan has deserted him." So came the Divine Revelation: "By the forenoon and by the night When it is still! Your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither Forsaken you Nor hated you." (Surah 93.1-3)


Hadith Number 226.

Narrated by Um Salama (Radhi Allahu Anha): One night the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) got up and said, "Subhan Allah! How many afflictions Allah has revealed tonight and how many treasures have been sent down (disclosed). Go and wake the sleeping lady occupants of these dwellings up (for prayers), perhaps a well-dressed in this world may be naked in the Hereafter."


Hadith Number 227.

Narrated by 'Ali bin Abi Talib : One night Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) came to me and Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and asked, "Won't you pray (at night)?" I said, "O Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam)! Our souls are in the hands of Allah and if He wants us to get up He will make us get up." When I said that, he left us without saying anything and I heard that he was hitting his thigh and saying, "But man is more quarrelsome than anything." (Surah Al-Kahf 18:54)


Hadith Number 228.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) used to give up a good deed, although he loved to do it, for fear that people might act on it and it might be made compulsory for them. The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) never prayed the Duha prayer, but I offer it.


Hadith Number 229.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): (The mother of the faithful believers) One night Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) offered the prayer in the Masjid and the people followed him. The next night he also offered the prayer and too many people gathered. On the third and the fourth nights more people gathered, but Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) did not come out to them. In the morning he said, "I saw what you were doing and nothing but the fear that it (i.e. the prayer) might be enjoined on you, stopped me from coming to you." And that happened in the month of Ramadan.


Hadith Number 230.

Narrated by Al-Mughira (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) used to stand (in the prayer) or pray till both his feet or legs swelled. He was asked why (he offered such an unbearable prayer) and he (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Should I not be a thankful slave."

'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) further said, "I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Do you sleep before offering the Witr prayer?' He (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) replied, 'O 'Aishah! My eyes sleep but my heart remains awake!'"

Alhamdu lil-lahi wa subhanal-lahi wa la-ilaha il-lal-lah wa-l-lahu akbar wa la hawla Wala Quwata il-la-bil-lah.' (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah. He is the Only One and has no partners. For Him is the Kingdom and all the praises are due for Him. He is Omnipotent. All the praises are for Allah. All the glories are for Allah. And none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, And Allah is Great And there is neither Might nor Power Except with Allah). And then says: Allahumma, Ighfir li(O Allah! Forgive me).

I also saw as if two persons (i.e. angels) came to me and wanted to take me to Hell. Then an angel met us and told me not to be afraid. He then told them to leave me. Hafsa (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) narrated one of my dreams to the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Abdullah is a good man. Would that he offer the night prayer (Tahajjud)!" So after that day 'Abdullah (bin 'Umar) started offering Tahajjud. The companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) used to tell him their dreams that (Laila-tul-Qadr) was on the 27th of the month of Ramadan.

You know and I do not and You know the unseen. O Allah! If You know that this job is good for my religion and my subsistence and in my Hereafter... (or said: If it is better for my present and later needs). Then You ordain it for me and make it easy for me to get, And then bless me in it, and if You know that this job is harmful to me In my religion and subsistence and in the Hereafter... (or said: If it is worse for my present and later needs). Then keep it away from me and let me be away from it. And ordain for me whatever is good for me, And make me satisfied with it).

Hadith Number 279.

Narrated by Mahmud bin Ar-rabi' Al-Ansari (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he remembered Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and he also remembered a mouthful of water which he had thrown on his face, after taking it from a well that was in their house. Mahmud said that he had heard Itban bin Malik, who was present with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) in the battle of Badr saying, "I used to lead my people at Bani Salim in the prayer and there was a valley between me and those people. Whenever it rained it used to be difficult for me to cross it to go to their Masjid. So I went to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, 'I have weak eye-sight and the valley between me and my people flows during the rainy season and it becomes difficult for me to cross it; I wish you would come to my house and pray at a place so that I could take that place as a praying place.' Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'I will do so.' So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and Abu Bakr came to my house in the (next) morning after the sun had risen high. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) asked my permission to let him in and I admitted him. He did not sit before saying, 'Where do you want us to offer the prayer in your house?' I pointed to the place where I wanted him to pray. So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) stood up for the prayer and started the prayer with Takbir and we aligned in rows behind him; and he offered two Rakat, and finished them with Taslim, and we also performed Taslim with him. I detained him for a meal called "Khazir" which I had prepared for him. ("Khazir" is a special type of dish prepared from barley flour and meat soup).

When the neighbors got the news that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) was in my house, they poured it till there were a great number of men in the house. One of them said, 'What is wrong with Malik, for I do not see him?' One of them replied, 'He is a hypocrite and does not love Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam).' On that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'Don't say this. Haven't you seen that he said, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah for Allah's sake only.' The man replied, 'Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) know better; but by Allah, we never saw him but helping and talking with the hypocrites.' Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) replied, 'No doubt, whoever says. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and by that he wants the pleasures of Allah, then Allah will save him from Hell." Mahmud added, "I told the above narration to some people, one of whom was Ab-u Aiyub, the companion of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) in the battle in which he (Abu Aiyub) died and Yazid bin Mu'awiya was their leader in Roman Territory. Abu Aiyub denounced the narration and said, 'I doubt that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) ever said what you have said.' I felt that too much, and I vowed to Allah that if I remained alive in that holy battle, I would (go to Al-Madinah and) ask Itban bin Malik if he was still living in the Masjid of his people. So when he returned, I assumed Ihram for Hajj or 'Umrah and then I proceeded on till I reached Al-Madinah. I went to Bani Salim and Itban bin Malik, who was by then an old blind man, was leading his people in the prayer. When he finished the prayer, I greeted him and introduced myself to him and then asked him about that narration. He told that narration again in the same manner as he had narrated it the first time."
