15 Incredible Benefits Of Tahajjud Prayer You Probably don’t Know

Assalam Alaykum, Brothers and Sisters, I Hope You are Well.

As we have often heard, people achieve success through the Tahajjud Prayer. Why does Allah SWT make this Prayer so powerful, even if it is a Nafl prayer?

Today, through this article, we will tell you the 15 Interesting Benefits of Tahajjud Prayer, and we hope you will like it very much.

Every night, Allah Swt descends to the lowest heavens and calls out, saying, what does he say?

Who is there seeking forgiveness when the 3rd of the night remains? Who is there seeking forgiveness so I can give? Who is there, repenting so I can accept? Who is there, asking me any of their needs?

Imagine you get and look at the time and say, wow, Allah is calling, Allah is calling me, Oh Allah, I am the one, I am seeking, Oh Allah me, I want forgiveness, Oh Allah forgive me.

I have a need and am calling out to you; I know you’re here to answer me. Call out to Allah, and he will give you what you want.

If it is Toubah and Istighfar, he will forgive you; if it is anything else, he will grant it to you; when he knows it’s the right time, he will give you what he knows is better for you.

Subhanallah, so this is the time of Tahajudd. That is the most blessed time of the night, and we call it the early hours of the morning. The last part of the night is the part of Tahajjud.

Narrated by Uqba ibn Amir (R.A):

“When one out of two persons of my Ummah gets up at night and motivates himself for Wudhu despite not feeling to do so since Shaytaan had tied knots on him. When he washes his two hands in Wudhu, one knot is loosened. When he washes his face, another knot is loosened when he wipes his head with wet hands, and another knot is loosened; when he washes his feet, yet another knot is loosened. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says to those behind the veil- His angels: “Look at My slaves! How much hardship he is enduring in dealing with his Nafs (inner self), so now whatever this slave asks of Me, it will be granted to him.” (Ahmad)

What is Tahajjud Prayer

The Tahajjud prayer is an optional Nafl prayer offered by Muslims just before dawn. 

Tahajjud is derived from the Arabic words “to struggle” or “to strive.” Muslims believe Tahajjud is an optional nafl prayer in Islam, performed after midnight or on the third night. 

Tahajjud is not an obligatory prayer, but it is highly recommended. This Prayer is one of the most important prayers to offer because it is in this Prayer that The believer is closest to Allah.

In this Prayer, the worshipper seeks forgiveness for sins and asks for Allah’s help in fulfilling their obligations.

If we want to know the importance of this Prayer, we can read holy quran verses where Allah SWT orders the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) to perform Tahajjud:

“And during a part of the night, pray Tahajjud beyond what is incumbent on you; maybe your Lord will raise you to a position of great glory.”

(Qur’an:Al-Isra’ 17:79)

Allah the Almighty has mentioned the Tahajjud prayer in His Glorious Book and has praised those who perform it.

The Tahajjud prayer has many uncalculatable benefits, but we brought some of them so you can know the importance of this powerful Prayer.

The following are 15 benefits of Tahajjud Prayer that have been mentioned about Hadith:

Allah says in Quran

Most merciful searching for Allah’s mercy at night spent their night between prostration and bowing Ruku and Sajda; they paid a portion of the night in salah.

What would this mean? Allah did not speak about the five daily prayers because those are obligatory. They are in order.

Now, if you want the mercy of Allah, you need to make an extra effort. Come on, my brothers and sisters, once in a while, get up for salat ul Tahajjud.

01. Deliver Prayer and Hope

Tahajjud prayer is very effective because a person remembers Allah when the whole world is sleeping. And at this time, Allah accepts all the prayers and hopes of his believers.

“Every night Allah Tabaraka Wa Ta’ala descends (to the heavens of the world) when it is the third of the last night. He said: “Whoever calls me, I will allow his appeal. Whoever asks me, I let his request. And whoever asks forgiveness of Me, I forgive him. “

(Bukhari and Muslim)

02. Protects against Disease

There is no doubt that Tahajjud prayer protects a person from various diseases. And also, if someone is sick, it gives him Shifa.

The prophet (PBUH) said:

“Do night prayer because it is a tradition of pious people before you, a means of getting closer Allah, prevention of sin, erasing wrongdoings, and preventing all kinds of diseases from the body.” (Tirmidhi)

03. Heart and face is Beauty

Every person in the world wants their face and heart to be beautiful, so we should offer Tahajjud prayers.

The prophet (pub said, “Whoever is doing a lot of night prayers, then the face will look handsome or beautiful in the daytime.” (Ibnu Majah)

04. The Goal is Easy to Achieve

The easiest way to achieve any of your goals is to read Tahajjud’s prayers along with hard work; Inshallah, that work will be done quickly.

“I have given him what he expects (goals) and gives a sense of security from what he fears.” (HR Ahmad)

05. Helpful to Eliminate Laziness

Before the beginning of any day, if we make it a habit to offer the Tahajjud prayer, there will be no laziness around us.

Along with the five times that one has to offer Namaz, he is counted among religious people if a person also offers Tahajjud Namaz.

“So be patient, for (the) Command (of) your Lord, for indeed, you (are) in Our Eyes. And glorify (the) praise (of) your Lord when you arise, And of the night, glorify Him, and after the stars.”

(At-Tur 52:48-49)

07. Preventing from Sins

When a person performs the Tahajjud prayer, Allah SWT keeps him away from the wickedness of Satan so that a person avoids sinning.

“So be patient, for (the) Command (of) your Lord, for indeed, you (are) in Our Eyes. And glorify (the) praise (of) your Lord when you arise, And of the night, glorify Him, and after the stars.” (At-Tur 52:48-49)

When a person performs the prayer of Tahajjud, then Allah Ta’ala protects him from all the troubles that come, so that is why we should offer the prayer of Tahajjud.

“Because they are alone with their Lord at night, then Allah gives them some of His light.” (Al-Maqrizi, Mukhtasar Qiyaamallail).

10. Get Rid of the Devil

Satan always tries to lead a person to the wrong path, and those who are steadfast believers and believe in Allah never fall under the guise of Satan.

“Satan is binding with three ties. Each of them says, ‘You still have a long night, go to sleep!’ If he wakes up in the name of God, then a bond is released. If he performs ablution, then he loses the next bond. And if he does the prayer, then let one more bond so that the next day he becomes diligent, as well as with his soul. Otherwise, his soul becomes dirty the next day, and his soul becomes lazy. ”

Those who offer Namaz five times and offer Tahajjud prayers, then in the eyes of Allah, that person is more important than an ordinary person because he remembers Allah except his sleep while the whole world is sleeping.

14. Accelerate Blood Circulation

There is no doubt that Namaz has many benefits to the human body.

Similarly, Tahajjud prayer has many benefits for the human body, one of which is that the blood circulation of the human body is good.
