Tahajjud Prayer

Daily Tahajud Prayer (The night after sleep prayer)

Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala (SWT) mention in the Surah Al Muzammil in verse 1-4.

Meaning from the Quran English Translation:
1. O you who wraps himself [in blanket],
2. Arise the night [to pray], except for a little -
3. Half of it  - or subtract from it a little
4. Or add to it , and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation.  
(Al Muzammil (73) verse 1-4.)


Abu Hurairah RA narrates that Rasulullah SAW said:
The best month for fasting, after the month of Ramadhan, is Allah month of Al-Muharram; and the best Solah after obligatory Solah is Tahajjud Solah. (Muslim)

Abu Umamah Bahili RA narrates that Rasulullah SAW said:
Make it a practice of offering Tahajjud, for undoubtly it was the tradition of the righteous (Solihin) before you. It is a means of bringing you near to your Rabb and atonement of evil deeds and a prevention against sins. (Mustadrak Hakim)

Abu Hurairah RA narrates that Rasulullah SAW said:
May Allah have mercy on the man who gets up during the night and offers Tahajjud, and awakens his wife so that she  may also offer Solah. If she does not get up (remains in the bed due to deep sleep), he lightly sprinkles water on her face to help awaken her. And may Allah show Mercy on the woman who gets up at night and offer solah and awaken her husband for Tahajjud, and if he does not awaken, she slightly springkles water on his face to awaken him. (Nasa'i)
note: This Hadith refers relates to such a couple who are fond of Tahajjud and to awake each other in this manner does cause any displeasure between them. (Ma'ariful Hadith)
