Midnight Prayers


The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) said: “The honour of a believer lies in his vigilance at night and his esteem lies in his autonomy from people.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 82, p. 202

Imam Amir-ul-Mu’mineen Ali (a.s.) said: “He who sleeps too much at night, will lose something of his deeds (i.e., night prayers) which he cannot gain during the day-time.”

Qurar-ul-Hikam, p. 289

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said that Allah (s.w.t.) in a revelation told Moses, the son of Imran (a.s.): “O’ you son of Imran! those who only claim that they love Me, tell a lie, for when the night falls they neglect Me.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 13, p. 329

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said: “Never miss midnight prayers! because, in fact, the real loser is he who misses (the advantage of) the midnight prayer.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 83, p. 127

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said: “The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h.) told Gabriel to preach to him, and he said: ‘Live howsoever you like but you will surely die; love whatsoever you like but you will surely depart from it; do whatsoever you like but you will certainly meet it (and receive its reward). The honour of a (Muslim) believer is his mid-night prayers, and his nobility is his refraining from (ruining) people’s reputation.”

Khisal by Saduq, p. 7

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said: “There are three things which are the honour of a believer and his ornament both in this world and the next. They are: prayers in the last part of night (night prayers), not coveting what people posses in their hands, and the love (and leadership) of Imam from the progeny of Muhammad (p.b.u.h.).”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 75, p. 107

Imam Muhammad-ibn-Ali, Jawad-ul-A’immah, (a.s.) said: “He who has confidence in Allah, sees joy; and he who trusts on Him, He will suffice his affairs.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 78, p. 79

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said: “Never miss midnight prayers! because, in fact, the real loser is he who misses (the advantage of) the midnight prayer.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 83, p. 127

  1. The reward in the mid night prayer is enormous, so much that the Prophet was reportedly quoted that were it possible for him, he would have made it the sixth daily prayer. Again, there is a particular hour in every midnight according to the Prophet that the request (s) of Allah’s servant calling on Him is accepted. These are pointers to the reason why every muslim should make the prayer an habit and a tradition. Allah will bless us.
