A most rewarding and fulfilling part of a Muslim’s worship are those blessed moments that he spends praying in the depth of the night, privately addressing his Great Lord, sincerely glorifying Him, humbly imploring Him – beseeching His forgiveness and asking Him for favors.
The voluntary “night prayer”, or qiyam, is indispensable for a person’s moral, spiritual, and physical welfare. Yet, it is greatly misunderstood and largely neglected by most Muslims.
This is why we present this book, with two main objectives:
1. Provide a complete guide on the subject of qiyam and related issues, in accordance with the Quran, the Sunnah, and the guidance of the Salaf.
2. Present to the reader, in the process, two important works by the prominent scholar Muhammad Nasir ud-Deen al-Albaani (may Allah bless him): “Salat ut-Taraaweeh” and “Qiyaam Ramadan”.
This book is not only for Ramadan, but is for every night of the year. It is an treasure of guidance that one will want to keep by his pillow at night, and grab it as soon as he rises for the greatest bliss of the night. It is a gift that is sure to please and benefit, insha’allaah.
