How to perform Tahajjud prayer? Our Master the Prophet performed this prayer, which is also called the night prayer, and recommended it to his ummah to perform it as well.
Tahajjud prayer It is a prayer performed after the night prayer or after sleeping for a while, and it can be performed until the time of imsak. This prayer, which is performed as a sunnah, is a nafilah prayer that is very virtuous.
How to Perform Tahajjud Prayer?
Tahajjud prayer Although it is performed as two, four or eight rak’ahs, it would be more virtuous to salute once in every two rak’ahs. In this case, although it is more virtuous to salute in 2 rak’ahs, it is also possible to greet once in four rak’ahs.
Tahajjud as in every prayer prayer It starts with intention. This intention is as follows: “I intend to perform the tahajjud prayer for the sake of Allah”
If more than 2 rak’ahs are to be prayed, then there is no need to make intention for the prayer again, unless there are acts that are contrary to prayer, such as talking, eating and drinking.
Tahajjud prayer If it is to be performed as four rak’ahs, after the second rak’ah, when sitting for tashahhud, the prayers “Allahumma salli” and “Allahumma barik” are recited after “tahiyyat”. Then, when standing up for the third rakat, “Subhâneke” is read first, then “Eûzü basmala” is drawn and continued with Surah Fatiha.
Virtue of Tahajjud Prayerti
Hz. The Prophet (saas) said in a narration: “Whoever wakes up at night and wakes up his family for prayer and prays two rak’ahs, it will be written among men and women who remember Allah much.” (Abu Dawud, Tatavvu’, 18)
In another hadith, the following is stated, showing us the value of Tahajjud prayer. “The most virtuous prayer after the obligatory prayers is the night prayer” (Muslim, Siyam, 202; Abu Dawud, Siyam, 55)
However, both verbal encouragement and de facto Hz. The effort of our Prophet (saas) to make it continuous shows us that tahajjud prayer is sunnah for us and its importance. (Ibn Abidin, Reddu’l-muhtar, II, 467-468).
It is mentioned in some hadiths that the Prophet (pbuh) performed the night prayer and then went to sleep without performing the witr prayer. Then, after waking up in the middle of the night and performing the night prayer for a while, it is mentioned that he prays the witr prayer and then the morning prayer when the time for the morning prayer comes. (Muslim, Salat al-Musafirin, 182)
The virtues of Tahajjud prayer it is quite a lot. As a matter of fact, our Master the Prophet (saas) advised his ummah to perform the tahajjud prayer and informed both his ummah and his ummah about the benefits of this prayer. Companion-i Kiram He gave advice to our masters. There are hadith-i sharifs that those who continue the Tahajjud prayer will have a different light on their faces and their past sins will be forgiven.
It is obvious how much we will need these rewards at the time of the Day of Judgment and Resurrection, then how happy are those people who become conscious of it and work.
