Qiyaam ul Layl – The Night Prayer

Bismillah

A man said to Ibraaheem ibn Adham, “I cannot pray qiyaam al-layl, so tell me the cure for this.” He said, “Do not commit sin during the day, and He will help you to stand before Him at night, for your standing before Him at night is one of the greatest honours, and the sinner does not deserve that honour.”

Muhammad ibn al-Munkadir said:There is nothing left of the joys of this life except three: qiyaam al-layl, meeting one’s brothers in faith, and praying in congregation.”

Thaabit al-Banaani said: There is nothing I enjoy more than qiyaam al-layl.”

Yazeed al-Riqaashi said: “A lot of tahajjud brings delight to the worshippers, and a lot of thirst (i.e., fasting), brings joy when they meet Allaah.”

‘Abd-Allaah ibn Wahb said: “Every type of pleasure is enjoyed only once, except for acts of worship, which are enjoyed three times: when you do it, when you remember it, and when you are given the reward for it.”

Al-Hasan said: “We do not know of any deed more difficult than the struggle to stay up at night or to spend money.” It was said to him, “Why do the mutahajjadeen (those who pray Tahajjud at night) have the most beautiful faces? He said, “Because they spend time alone with the Most Merciful, so He adorns them with some of His light.”

waAllahu ta’aala a’alem

Allahumma-j’alna min al-mutahajjideen, waj’alna min as-saaleheen, wa taqabbal salaatana wa salaati al muslimeen ajma’een.  Yaa muqaleeb-al-quloob, thabbit quloobunaa ‘ala deenik.  Ameen!

O Allah make us of those who pray tahajjud, and make us of the righteous, and accept our prayers and the prayers of all the Muslims.  O Turner of hearts, fasten our hearts on Your Deen.  Ameen!
