Which is better, to spend Qiyam Al-Layl praying sitting, with khushoo and overall feeling comfortable, or to pray standing, tolerating pain because you've standing for some hours, with less or slightly less khushoo than sitting?

  • Questions asking about "better/worse, more/less" are often subjective and therefore hardly on-topic. – Medi1Saif May 30 '19 at 0:51

Narrated by Ayesha(Ra.),“Do not ever stop praying Qiyaam. The Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) never ceased praying it. When he sallallaahualayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) was sick or weak, he prayed sitting.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]


Pray standing as much you can comfortably and then pray sitting is better if tired and can't focus.
