Tahajjud prayer

Sometimes you just need a little time to yourself, head in sujjod, tears in eyes, and all duas on your lips. Allah knows what is in your heart and on your lips.

I always wonder how people get closer to Allah. Then I read about Tahajjud prayer, which is the solution to every problem. If you also want to get closer to Allah, then I will tell you what you should do.

Optional or Nafil prayers

Nafli prayer plays an important role in Islam. While obligatory prayer is compulsory for all Muslims, these Nafli prayers are optional. If a Muslim offers Nafli prayer, then they’ll be closer to Allah.

There is a lot of virtue and reward in reading the Nafila prayers after the obligatory prayers. We should offer daily prayer on time. We provide you with accurate Obligatory Prayer time but through Nawafil, we also get closer to Allah. Allah Talah showers his special favor on this servant.

There are so many Nafli prayers in Islam. What I’m discussing in this article is Tahajjud prayer.

Tahajjud prayer

The Arabic root word “hajada,” which means to “stay awake or wake up,” is where the phase “Tahajjud” originates. The optional nighttime prayer is known as Tahajjud. It is very important in Islam. It is offered prior to the Fajr prayer and following the Isha prayer.

Tahajjud is a prayer of love. A prayer that a person performs not for his own sake but for the love of Allah. The sky is full of stars, and there is silence everywhere. Then man has a long talk with Allah in solitude.

That sujjod of Tahajjud is so calm that it seems as if our hearts will leave the body. Then everything that has been incomplete is completed.

Pair this up with Tahajjud and Wallahi, and you’ll get addicted to waking up for Tahajjud and having that special connection with Allah. I’m not trying to blow my trumpet, but I say this from experience, and if a sinner like me can experience it, everyone can, insha’Allah.

A time between you and Allah, pray as much as you can, ask for forgiveness, and pray that Allah grants you your very desires and wishes. Tahajjud is a time when Allah comes down to the lowest of heavens and grants those who are sincerely asking for forgiveness, mercy, and those who are sincerely asking for something, ease.

Tahajjud is life-changing. We need to break this negative stereotype surrounding Tahajjud and show how difficult it is. Tahajjud and sincerity in your duas are the keys to your dreams becoming reality.

When should I pray the Tahajjud prayer?

The optimal time is the last part of the night, which might be anywhere between midnight and morning. This time period is seen to be very fortunate and peaceful, making it ideal for concentrated prayer. 
Many Muslims opt to recite Tahajjud just before Fajr (dawn prayer). It’s an effective method to request forgiveness and direction as the new day starts.

There is no clear beginning or finish point in the final portion of the night. It’s all about finding a time that works for you, whether it’s around midnight or immediately before Fajr. 

Tahajjud is a personal journey. Find a moment when you can be focused and present in your prayer, even if just for a little while.
