1 Answer 1


Tahajjud (Night prayer)

It is a voluntary prayer and a best way to purify the soul. Tahajjud Prayer does not entail a specific number of rak`ahs that must be performed.

Moreover, performing Tahajjud prayers regularly qualifies one as one of the righteous and helps one earn God's bounty and mercy.

God says :

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.(isra,79)

see 3:17, 25:64, 32:16, 33:35, 39:9, 51:17-18, 73:1-4, 73:20

Number of rakaats and time

I practice tahajjud prayer starting with two rakat followed by two rakat and (so on) and finish with one rakat. I usually recite the surahs, the one i know its translation too (yusuf,isra,yunus..etc). The time i pray usually between (3:30-fajr).
