How to pray Tahajjud prayer?

The Messenger of Allah Muhammad (SAW) said about

Tahajjud prayer:

“The most virtuous prayer except the obligatory prayers is the one offered by becoming awake after sleep at night.” This Hadith describes the greatness of this prayer after Fard prayer. It is not easy for one to wake up from his warm bed _in severely cold days_ to perform ablution and pray, so Allah asks his angels “why my servant wakes up and cares about praying at this late time in the night?” Their angels answer: “Oh Allah! Your servants are afraid of your punishment, and also want to get your Blessings.” Then Allah replies: “They will get what they want, and i will protect them from what they are afraid of.” Before knowing how to pray Tahajjud we have to know that the first step is to put your intention by saying that you will pray 2 Rakat of Tahajjud (there is an opinion saying that you can make your intention with your heart without speaking). 1. Stand up straight looking at the position of your Sujood and say Allahu Akbar (Takbir). 2. After saying “Audhu billahi minashaitan nirajeem bismillahir rahmanir raheem”, recite Surah Al Fatihah then another Surah of the Holy Quran. 3. After finishing the second Surah, there is the time of Roku’ which is the bowing position, in which we say “Subhana rabia Al Azeem.” 4. Then to the standing position, then to Sujood in which we say “Subhana rabia al A’la.” 5. After first Sujood there is another one. In Sujood we ask what we wish from Allah as it is the nearest position to Allah. The first cycle or the first Rak’a is finished and there is a second Rak’a. 6. We stand up again to do what we did in the first Rak’a, then we sit for the complete Tashahhud. 7. Finally, we say on the right hand “Assalamu Alaikum warahmatullah” and also on the left. This will help you in How to pray Tahajjud. It is important to say that Tahajjud is prayed in the sets of 2 (2, 4,6, or 8 Rakat), and 2 Rakat is the minimum number. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) prayed up to 13 Rakat (8 Tahajjud, 2 Shaf’ and 1 Witr). Tahajjud has a great reward from Allah so don’t miss it! Also Read : Sujood meaning and its great benefits
