How to perform Tahajjud – The Night Vigil Prayer



Imagine yourself standing in front of Supreme Deity for the answerability of the conferred deeds among the pool of individuals, imploring for the forgiveness and mercy. All are on the same scale, yet few get preeminence upon their immeasurable extra deeds that they have accomplished for seeking Allah’s pleasure. That penitence time would be past the point where it is possible to request that your Lord allows additional time for supplication and to offer his assessed customs.

Likewise, Allah SWT has entitled some prayers with the distinctive peculiarity that will build the status and stature of a Muslim at Judgment Day. One of the prayers is Tahajjud about which the Allah Almighty said:

وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِ نَافِلَةً لَكَ عَسَىٰ أَنْ يَبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا

And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional [worship] for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station. (Quran: 17: 79)
