Hi all readers! Are you looking for an explanation of Tahajjud dua for success? 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 three important things about Tahajjud dua for success which I will explain in this article. The three important things I mean are as follows:
Why Should You Say Dua for Success?
The first important thing about Tahajjud dua for success that I will explain now is “why should you say dua for success?”. I want you to understand that first before you read any further explanations in this article because that is one of the important questions in this discussion that should be well understood.
Success is something that a person wants. Success can make a person proud and happy. But success does not come easily. In general, before a person is successful, he has experienced a lot of problems.
In Islam, Muslims are required to say dua if they want something, including success. Allah Taala says:
وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُوْنِيْٓ اَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ۗاِنَّ الَّذِيْنَ يَسْتَكْبِرُوْنَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِيْ سَيَدْخُلُوْنَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِيْنَ
And your Lord says, “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.” Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible. (Gharfir : 60).
In Islamic literacy, dua is one of the best acts of worship. We can find an explanation of that in the hadith below:
عَنِ النُّعْمَانَ بْنِ بَشِيْرٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : إِنَّ الدُّعَاءَ هُوَ العِبَادَةُ
From Nukman bin Basyir radiyallahu anhuma, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Verily dua is worship.”
Now, if you ask me, “why should you say dua for success?”, the answer is because dua is one way to get success. I say that because hard work will not be enough to get success without dua. Hard work is the ultimate effort to get success. Dua is an inner effort for success.
That’s a brief explanation of “why should you say dua for success?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Is Tahajjud Dua for Success Accepted?
The second important thing about Tahajjud dua for success which I will explain now is “is Tahajjud dua for success accepted?”. I want you to understand that now because it is one of the important questions in this discussion.
Before I give you the answer to the question (is Tahajjud dua for success accepted?), I will quote one hadith about Tahajjud dua or dua after Tahajjud. One hadith that I mean is as follows:
عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ : أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : يَنْزِلُ رَبُّنَا تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى كُلَّ لَيْلَةٍ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ الدُّنْيَا ، حِيْنَ يَبْقَى ثُلُثُ اللَّيْلِ الآخِرِ يَقُوْلُ : مَنْ يَدْعُوْنِيْ فَأَسْتَجِيْبُ لَهُ , مَنْ يَسْأَلُنِيْ فَأُعْطِيْهِ , مَنْ يَسْتَغْفِرُنِيْ فَأَغْفِرُ لَهُ
From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “Our Lord (Allah) the Most Holy and Exalted descends into the world’s sky every night, when the last third of the night remains. He said, “Whoever prays to Me, I will surely answer. Whoever asks of me, I will surely give. Whoever begs me for forgiveness, I will surely forgive him.”
All readers! The above hadith explains that Allah Taala descends to the heavens of the world in the last third of the night. He answered the prayer of someone who was praying at that time. He granted the request of someone who asked at the time. He forgives the sins of those who ask Him for forgiveness at that time.
So, if you ask me, “is Tahajjud dua for success accepted?”, the answer is “Yes. If we say the Tahajjud prayer sincerely and correctly.”
What is meant by saying Tahajjud dua in earnest is to sincerely ask Allah Taala to grant Him the Tahajjud dua.
What is meant correctly when saying Tahajjud dua is saying Tahajjud dua correctly, such as ethics and so on.
That’s a brief explanation of “is Tahajjud dua for success accepted?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
