Tahajjud- Last Third of Night

Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Every night when it is the last third of the night, our Lord, the Exalted, the Blessed, descends to the nearest heaven and says, ‘Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?’” [Bukhari]

Commentary: This hadith informs us of the excellence of the last third of the night, how Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is hoping for someone to ask Him for something at that time, so He may grant it to them. Although Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) hears us, watches us, and is aware of our feelings at all times, but the time before dawn is extra special.

Wake up a little before Fajr to capitalize on these moments of extraordinary nearness to Allah, the Exalted, the Blessed.

Hasan Al-Basri (radi Allahu) was asked about how is it that those who perform Tahajjud have the brightest faces, to which he {Allah have mercy on him} replied… “That is because they seclude themselves in devotion to Allah so He beautifies them with light from His light.”

Karaz Ibn Wabrah said that it had reached him that Ka’b used to say {Allah have mercy on them}“The Angels look down from the sky at (holding in esteem) those who make Tahajjud just as you all look up to the stars in the sky.”
