View Full Version : Five benefits from Tahajjud

04-12-2009, 10:41 AM

Based on Chapter 7 in Du’a; The Weapon of the Believer by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi

1) Allah describes the true believers as those who:

‘…and, in the hours of dawn, they seek forgiveness from their Lord…’ Surah Al-Dhariyat, Ayah 18

The distinction between a believer and one who is just a Muslim is further defined by this act

2) The doors of Mercy and Forgiveness are open during the last 1/3 of night:

Proof: Hadeeth

Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

Our Lord descends every night, during the last third of it, to the skies of this world, and asks: ‘Who is making du’aa to me, so that I can respond to him? Who is asking Me, so that I can give him? Who is asking for My forgiveness, so that I can forgive him?’

Reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim from Abu Hurayrah

3) If a person wishes his/her Du’aa to be accepted this is the best time to ask as shown in hadeeth above

4) Huge incentive for the believer to wake up when everyone else is asleep and remember Allah (Subbhana Wa Ta’ala) privately
5) Allah favored this time over other times and Allah distinguised this timing so that the worshipper can eagerly anticipate this time and pray earnestly and sincerely; The worshipper should ensure his/her du’aa is more frequent and sincere during these times.
