The Hour of Tahajjud Salaah ~ A Time of Unique Peace! ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اَللّهُِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Excerpts taken from Weekly Tafseer Discourses : Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB explains :

In Surah Muzammil, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala expatiates on aspects related to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and his devotion to Tahajjud Salaah.

In this highly stressed Sunnah, the true and genuine Muhabbat one will show to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is when one stands up at night and performs a few Rakaats in communion with Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

It is such a serene time ….Everything is silent…Everything is still….It’s so peaceful…It’s a time exclusive for you and your Allah!

It is a time of unique peace!

For those that remain away from their beds at night and spread out their Mussallahs…It’s benefits are numerous. One becomes so consumed, so absorbed and engrossed in talking to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala in supplication, in Du’aa, in Tilawat of the Quraan, in Ruku and Sajda…the enjoyment surpasses the people of the world and whatever their amusement may be…you cannot compare the both….

A person who reads Tahajjud Salaah…his ‘Rooh’ (Soul) becomes ‘illuminated’…It is that time of the night when a person is helped by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala to suppress his evil desires and keep them under control…..It is that time of the night where it is most effective for the heart, the eye, the ear, the tongue to mutually correspond and conform with one another…

The tongue is reciting … The ear is listening …The heart is absorbing! 


May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala give us Taufeeq of reading Tahajjud Salaah…
