The Holy Prophet Mohd (SAW) had urged us to sleep the early part of the nyt and wake up @ the latter part 2 woship the Almighty Allah. Worships cld not necessarily be Salaat especially ladies who can be off @ their individual periods. We can be busy with Dhikr, recitation of the Holy Quran etc.
The Prophet said 2 get the latter part of the nyt, we should divide the nyt into 3, count the number of hrs we have from sunset to sun rise. Lets assume the sun sets @ 6.30pm (Kano timing) and rises @ 6.30am, we hv exactly 12hrs, divide these hrs by 3, which gives u 4hrs each. Count four hrs each n pick the last 4 hrs 4 ur Ibadat. The recommended timing will now be 3.30am. to 6.30 am. These are very important moments in our lives where anything mentioned on a clean slate is answered without any hindrance. The only battle is Ash-Shaytan( The Cursed one).
Anybody who wishes to wake up @ that part of the nyt should recite the first and last 10 verses of Suratul Kahf b4 retiring to bed.
The Almighty Allah pleads with us to get up n worship him during that part of the nyt. Ya Ikhwanil Muslimeen, thats to show how loving the Almighty Allah is, wat do u do to thank him FIRST for making you a muslim and for making you who u r today.
Allah is oft forgiving n ever merciful.
