The Blessings Of Tahajjud
Tahajjud prayer is one of the supererogatory prayers which is optional for you. It would not be answerable to the Almighty for not doing so.
However, do you know the blessings of tahajjud prayer are as wide as the sky and earth?
Tahajjud prayer should be implemented after Isha’ and in the final third of a night upon waking up.
Yes, you need to put aside the fluffy blanket that keeps you warm throughout your sleep and waking up to perform ablution with icy water before getting into tahajjud.
I know what’s playing in your mind. Yes, it is really onerous prayer to get done especially in the middle of 3 o’clock in the morning.
Who would do that?
Well, that’s actually the answer. Not everyone would be able to do that. The one who ever taste the sweetness of tahajjud blessings would not let the chance to wake up for tahajjud go pass by.
Let me share some of the benefits of tahajjud prayer to your life. Buckle up!
Destroy the concrete of laziness and lust
The one who is consistent in waking up for tahajjud would create a pattern of discipline in himself. Because it is not an easy task to rouse from one’s slumber, especially after a long hectic day routine. The fact that you manage to put yourself on your two feet in the early morning to perform tahajjud means you manage to resist the temptation in yourself to worship Allah SWT.
Moreover, when you wake up in the early morning, you can prepare your body and mind for the day that will come ahead. Also, tahajjud prayer performed at the end of the quiet night could bring calmness. While calm it proves to increase the immunologic body resistance.
Get locked in Allah's embrace
At the last third of a night, when the whole world sleeps, Allah descends to see who is awake to remember Him, to grant them their wishes, blessings and forgive them.
Tahajjud prayer is an effective medium to send away your hopes and prayers in the hold of God’s hand. You could ask Him for anything at the moment, whether to cry your heart out sharing your problems, seeks His help and forgiveness, or pray for the one whom you dearly about.
Also, don’t forget to plea for the presence of a continuing flow of guidance on how to lead your life into the embrace of Allah.
In fact, Allah loves someone who surrenders all their wills to Him.
Lead to a beautiful closure of life
Every soul in this world will taste death, then to Allah you will all be returned.
That is why everyone needs to strive to be dead in husnul khatimah, which is to die in a good state of Islam and guaranteed to enter heaven.
Performing tahajjud prayer is the sign of remembrance of Allah. Which leads to an epiphany of an impermanent life in this world. We could be reminded of death could pick us up anywhere and at any moment. Hopefully, maintaining tahajjud prayer could lead us to husnul khatimah.
How many of us take benefit of this opportunity?
These blessings showed that Allah is very pleased with someone who leaves his sleep in the middle of the night just to worship Him. It could only be done by someone who sincere with his love and faith in Allah.
If you could learn and understand the message of the Quran, in shaa Allah you’ll be more tempted to incorporate tahajjud prayer in your part of your life.
