The Night Prayer in Ramdan


The Virtue of Performing the Night Prayer in Ramadan

1.it has been reported in two hadeeths, the first of which is form Abu Hurairah, that he said:” Allah’s Messenger(sallahu alayhi wa sallam) would incite (them to perform the Night Prayers in Ramadan, without definitely commanding them. then he (sallahu alyhi wasallam) would say

” whoever perform the night prayer in Ramadan with firm faith and hoping to be rewarded, his past( minor) sins will be forgiven”

So Allah’s Messenger( sallahu alayhi wasallm) passed away and the matter remained in that condition. ” then this condition during the khilaafah of Abu Bakr( radyaAllahu ‘anhu) and a portion of the khilaafah of Umar ( radyaAllahu ‘anhu).

The second hadeeth is that of Amr Ibn Murrah al-juhanee who said a man from Qudaa’ah came to Allah’s Messenger and said to him O Messenger of Allah what do you say if testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah an that you are the Messenger of Allah, and if i were to pray the five daily prayers and  fast and pray the night prayers during the month of Ramadan and give the zakat?.

the prophet(sallahu alayhi wasallam) said ” whoever dies upon this state will be amongst the siddeeqeen and the martyrs”
