Tahajud Prayers - When Is the Best Time?
  • Question:

    What is the best time to offer taha'jud prayers?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    The best time to perform Tahajud (night vigil prayers) is in the last portion of the night just before the fajr (dawn) prayer.

    The Prophet Muḥammad (peace and blessings upon him) is reported to have declared, “The prayer in the last portion of the night is witnessed [by angels] and that is superior [in blessings]”. (Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim)

    And Allah knows best.
