qiyam al layl

Urgent duaa request. PLEASE REBLOG

Someone very special to me who’s my age (22) has just found out that they have cancer. They have been battling this cancer scare for a year going through countless tests, biopsies, and even surgery. They just got the news that she has cancer and that she now has to get another surgery and radioactive therapy. Please while you all are breaking your fasts, praying taraweeh, praying qiyam al layl, and throughout Ramadan please make duaa for her. Make duaa that this surgery and therapy removes all the cancer in her body and that this is the end of her cancer scare. Please pray that Allah heals her and grant her a speedy recovery and that she no longer has to deal with this ever again. Her family and her are heartbroken and I just want Allah to relieve them all from this pain. Please keep her in your most sincere duaas

Qiyam/Qiaam means?

“Qiyaam al-layl means spending the night, or part of it, even if it is only one hour, in prayer, reading Qur’aan, remembering Allah (dhikr) and other acts of worship. It is not stipulated that it should take up most of the night.”

This would include tashahhud or taraweeh in Ramadan

Salam, what time is the last one third of the night today because i want to pray tahajjud and i know what to do to work out the time but i cant do it, jazakallah :)

Walaikum Assalaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu,

I hope you are well and in the best of iman by the blessings of Allah!

Inshaa’ Allah this ruling (excerpted below) should address your question.

Question: is the hour that precedes the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer considered as part of the last third of the night?   

Answer: The hour that precedes the second Fajr (true dawn), which consists of 60 minutes, is part of the last third of the night and is considered to be the last hour of the last third of the night. This is because the night begins from the sunset and lasts until the emergence of the second Fajr. It is authentically reported that Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) descends to the worldly heaven in the last third of the night. It was related by Al-Bukhari in his “Sahih [Book of Authentic Hadith”, vol. 2, p. 47], on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said,

“Our Lord, Blessed and Exalted is He, descends every night to the heaven of the world, when only the last third of the night remains and says, ‘Who will supplicate Me that I may respond to him; who will ask Me that I may give him; who will beg My forgiveness that I may forgive him?’”

Every Muslim and Muslimah is free to benefit from the blessed times and the times when supplications are answered, to supply themselves with good righteous deeds and supplicate for whatever they like from the matters of the Din (religion) or the Duniya (this world). 

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and his family and Companions!

In addition, this ruling as well as this post explains the manner by which one should perform Qiyam Al Layl/Tahajjud (the Night prayer).

I sincerely hope the above will be of help by the permission of Allah. May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala enable us all to implement this beautiful and beneficial Sunnah, Ameen!

Narrated ‘Āisha (radhiAllāhu ‘anha):

قَالَ قَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ رضى الله عنها كَانَ إِذَا دَخَلَتِ الْعَشْرُ أَحْيَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم اللَّيْلَ وَأَيْقَظَ أَهْلَهُ وَشَدَّ الْمِئْزَرَ ‏.

With the start of the last ten days of Ramadān, the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) used to tighten his waist belt [i.e., work hard] and used to keep awake all the night and perform Salāt and also used to keep his family awake for the Salāt [prayer].
