Hi! All readers! Are you looking for an explanation of Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer? If your answer is “Yes”, congratulations! Now you are reading the right article. Why? Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you should read it to the end!
Specifically, there are two important things about Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer which I will explain in this article. Two important things I mean are as follows:
Why We Should Know Prophet’s Dua After Tahajjud Prayer?
The first important thing about Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer which I will explain now is “why we should know Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer?”. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article so that you understand the urgency of this discussion. At the same time, so that you understand why you should read this article.
One important thing I want to clarify before I explain all about it, that everything related to the Prophet, such as his words, his actions, and his decisions are Sunnah. We can find this explanation in the definition of the sunnah below:
السُنَّةُ اِصْطِلَاحًا هِيَ مَا نُسِبَ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ مِنْ أَقْوَالٍ وَأَفْعَالٍ وَتَقَارِيْرَ أَوْ صِفَاتٍ خَلْقِيَّةٍ أَوْ خُلُقِيَّةٍ
Sunnah in sharia terms is something that is attributed to the Prophet Muhammad alaihi ash-Shalatu wa as-Salam, such as sayings, deeds, statutes, creative traits or ethics.
We can find an explanation of Sunnah in the hadith below:
مَنْ سَنَّ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ سُنَّةً حَسَنَةً فَلَهُ أَجْرُهَا وَأَجْرُ مَنْ عَمِلَ بِهَا بَعْدَهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أُجُورِهِمْ شَيْءٌ وَمَنْ سَنَّ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ سُنَّةً سَيِّئَةً كَانَ عَلَيْهِ وِزْرُهَا وَوِزْرُ مَنْ عَمِلَ بِهَا مِنْ بَعْدِهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أَوْزَارِهِمْ شَيْءٌ
Whoever sets an example of good habits in Islam, then he will get his reward and the reward of those who imitate it, without reducing their reward in the slightest. And whoever sets an example of a bad habit, then he will get his sin, and the sin of those who follow him without reducing their sin in the slightest.
So, if you ask me, “why we should know Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer?”, the answer is because the Prophet had read the dua after Tahajjud. One of the advantages for us is that dua that the Prophet has said is a mutawatir dua and it is very possible that Allah will answer our dua if we read the dua.
That’s the answer. That is the urgency of the discussion in this article. That is the reason why we must know the Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer.
That is a brief explanation of “why we should know Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Prophet’s Dua After Tahajjud Prayer
The second important thing about Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer which I will explain now is the specific answer. So, I really hope you read the explanation below very well.
Before I explain Prophet’s dua after Tahajjud prayer, I will quote a hadith that is specifically related to this discussion. The hadith I mean is as follows:
عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا قَامَ مِنَ اللَّيْلِ يَتَهَجَّدُ قَالَ : اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ قَيِّمُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيْهِنَّ , وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ ، لَكَ مُلْكُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيْهِنَّ ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ , أَنْتَ نُورُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ , أَنْتَ الْحَقُّ ، وَوَعْدُكَ الْحَقُّ ، وَلِقَاؤُكَ حَقٌّ ، وَقَوْلُكَ حَقٌّ ، وَالْجَنَّةُ حَقٌّ ، وَالنَّارُ حَقٌّ ، وَالنَّبِيُّونَ حَقٌّ ، وَمُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ حَقٌّ ، وَالسَّاعَةُ حَقٌّ ، اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ ، وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ ، وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْتُ ، وَبِكَ خَاصَمْتُ ، وَإِلَيْكَ حَاكَمْتُ ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ ، وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ ، أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ ، لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ ـ ( أَوْ لاَ إِلَهَ غَيْرُكَ )
From Ibn Abbas radliyallahu anhuma, he said, “When the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam wakes up at night, he performs the Tahajjud prayer and prays, “O Allah, all praise be to You. You are the ruler of all the heavens and the earth and all the creatures in them. All praise to You. All the kingdoms of heaven and earth and everything in them are yours. All praise to You. You are the light of all heaven and earth. All praise to You. You are the True God. Your promise is true. Meeting You is true. Your word is true. Heaven is true. Hell is True. On the Prophet is true. Muhammad sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam is true. Doomsday is true. O Allah, only to You I surrender. Only in You I have faith. Only to You I put my trust. Only to You I represent. It’s only because of you that I fight. And only to You I ask for justice. Forgive the sins I have committed and have not committed, the sins that I have committed secretly and openly. You are God who puts first and ends. There is no god but You.”
