Qiyamul Lail's dignity is immense

Ramadan is the name of a month. The days are part of Ramadan just as the days of the whole month are part of Ramadan. The worship of the day is fasting and the worship of the night is Qiyam.

Although the amal of the day is concerned with fasting or fasting, laziness is observed in many of the amal of the night amal. Qiyamul Lail is discussed here
: Qiyamul Lail: Qiyamul Lail means to stand at night. That is, to perform prayers with long kirat at night. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to perform prayers with such a long kirat that his feet would swell due to standing for a long time. Qiyamul Lail may also include supererogatory prayers in one’s mind, recitation of the Qur’an attentively, repentance to Allah with tears in one’s eyes, asking for forgiveness and so on.

Dignity of Qiyamul Lail: Dignity of Qiyamul Lail is immense in Ramadan. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Whoever stands up in the month of Ramadaan with full faith in the hope of reward, Allaah will forgive him all his previous sins.

(Bukhari, Hadith: 1905; Muslim, Hadith: 1815) In another hadith, Amr Ibn Murra Al-Juhani (RA) said, a man came to the Prophet (SAW) and said, O Messenger of Allah! If I testify that there is no god but Allah, you are the Messenger of Allah, pray five times a day, pay zakat, fast in the month of Ramadan and stay up at night, then who am I to be included? The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: You will be among the righteous and the martyrs.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban, Hadith: 3437)

Deadline of Qiyamul Lail: Rasulullah (peace be upon him) used to stay awake at least one-third of the night and perform prayers throughout the year. Allah says, ‘Your Lord knows that you wake up sometimes about two-thirds of the night, sometimes half and sometimes one-third. ‘

(Surah: Muzzammil, verse: 20) His awakening would have increased in Ramadan. Even in Ramadan, not being able to perform the prayers by waking up one-third of the night is nothing but a boundless failure. At present it is about 10 o’clock at night (4:30 in the morning, 6:30 in the evening). In that case, it is especially beneficial to perform the prayers by waking up at least three hours in bed at night.

Tarabi Prayers: Tarabi is the specialized prayer of Qiyamul Lail in Ramadan.

Here Qiyam means Tarabi prayers. Because Tarabi is in the month of Ramadan, not in any other month. Therefore, Qiyamul Lail will be justified if one stays awake at night and performs Tarabi prayers in long Kirat. For this reason, it is very advisable to perform 20 rak’ats of Tarabi prayers with Qur’an at the end. Qiyamul Layl is not justified if one falls asleep in a normal time like any other day by hurrying or doing less than 20 rak’ats or praying Tarabi prayers without Qur’an at the end. The Companions used to perform 23 rak’ats of Tarabi, three rak’ats of Vitr and 23 rak’ats in the time of Omar Ibn Khattab. (Muwatta, Hadith: 360)

Tahajjud prayers: Tahajjud is the prayer to be performed at the end of the night. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to perform eight rak’ahs of Tahajjud and three rak’ahs of Vitr with a long kirat. (Bukhari, Hadith: 1096; Muslim, Hadith: 1857)

However, many times he has also performed four / six / ten / twelve rak’ats.

(Bukhari, Hadith: 108; Muslim, Hadith: 1840)

Note that Tarabi and Tahajjud are not one. Two different prayers.  Tarabi, on the other hand, prays only in the first part of the night in the month of Ramadan. Tahajjud is the greatest prayer after the obligatory prayers. (Muslim, Hadith: 2612)

On the last night of Ramadan, everyone has to get up to eat sahri. In that case, if you get up a little earlier and perform Tahajjud prayers, the scope of Qiyamul Lail of Ramadan increases a little more and you can take the opportunity to perform the best prayers in the best month. ......................................................................

Awabin prayers: Awabin is the six rak’at prayers after Maghrib prayers.(Tirmidhi, Hadith: 435; Ibn Majah, Hadith: 116)
