MAKE INTENTION Of PRAYING TAHAJJUD (Neeyah) BEFORE GOING TO SLEEP
It is important that One Should Make the INTENTION of doing the
TAHAJJAUD PRAYERS “BEFORE” Going to Sleep. The reason behind this
Sunnah is that just in case if you donot “getup” then just for having
made the INTENTION before going to Sleep, ALLAH(SWT) will reward you
as if you did the Prayers, and if you did getup and “did” the
TAHAJJUD Prayers then the Rewards are limitless…
Proof of the Above: Abu Darda reprted that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Whoever goes to his bed with the intention of getting up and praying during the night, but, being overcome by sleep, fails to do that, he will have recorded for him what he has intended, and his sleep will be reckoned as a charity (an act of mercy) for him from his Lord.
—Al-Nasa’i and Ibn Maja
Mercy and forgiveness during 1/3 of the night
According to Abu Hurayrah, the Lord will descend every last 1/3 of the night, to the heavenly skies. He wants to know who is preparing dua to Him, so that HE can respond to their requests. Who wants His forgiveness, so that He can forgive them. This was reported by Abu Hurayrah and al-Bukhari.
If you wish your Duaa to be accepted then this is an appropriate time to for you to ask as mentioned above.
Jaabir ( may Allah be pleased with him ) says that he heard Nabi (peace be upon him ) saying, “Certainly in the night, there is a moment in which, if coincided by a submissive person asking Allah of the good of this world and the hereafter, Allah gives him whatever he asks for, and that is the entire night. (Muslim)
A great method of erasing all worldly concerns from your body and calming yourself is through waking up during the night and reciting Tahajjud Namaz. For those with stress and even depression, this prayer might be highly beneficial. It places a person in a state where negative thoughts and feelings are expelled from the body.
Then Which of the BLESSINGS of your LORD will you both deny?
In those moments in the last third of the night, in those two rakahs which you make out of pure frustration of your situation, weeping, asking Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala – exalted is He) to answer you – do you not think Allah the Rabb al-`alameen (Lord of the Worlds) will not respond to you? Allahu Akbar (God is the Greatest), this is Allah! Without doubt Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is going to answer you! Trust Allah, Beg Allah , Nag Allah.. not HIS creations..
