In the nearness of the night February 23, 2021

Among Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings be upon him) best-known and most commented habits was the practice of praying at night. In one Hadith reported by Bukhari & Muslim:

The Messenger of God said, “If people knew what lies in abandonment (of desires) they would race toward it, and if they knew what blessing lies in the prayers of the night and morning they would come to them, even if they had to crawl to do so.” (from The Book of Hadith, copyright 2007 The Book Foundation)
