Way To Perform Night Prayer. by Taamas111 (m): 3:22pm on January 12

My question is, do I have to pray at midnight
and over to be considered as Qiyaam-allail?
If just I wake up at night and do some
Tasbeeh, is this also as Qiyaam-allail? If so,
do I have to be in a full Tahaarah
(purification) Wudoo'?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Optional night prayer is a confirmed Sunnah
and it is the best prayer after the obligatory
ones. The Prophet said: "The best prayer
after the obligatory prayer is the optional
night prayer. '' [An-Nasaa'ee] It is not a
condition for the night prayer to be
performed after the middle of the night.
Indeed, its time starts after ‘Ishaa’ prayer
and lasts until Fajr. So whoever prays after
‘Ishaa’, has indeed prayed the optional night
prayer. However, the best time for them is
the last third of the night as the Prophet
said: “Allah descends every night in the
last third of the night [in a way that befits
His majesty] and Says: Is there anyone
invoking Me that I may respond to his
invocation? Is there anyone asking of Me so
that I may grant him his request? Is there
anyone asking My Forgiveness, so that I may
forgive him? ". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] Some
scholars even consider that the optional
night prayer starts from Maghrib.

As regards whether or not remembrance of
Allah is considered as night prayer, the
answer is that what is apparent from the
narration of the Prophet “ The best
prayer after the obligatory prayer is the
optional night prayer. ”, is that what is meant
by the optional night prayer is prayer and
not simply remembrance of Allah. There is
no doubt that remembrance of Allah is of
great excellence, but it is not a condition to
have ablution to do it, though it is desirable.
The Prophet said: “ I disliked mentioning
Allah except in a state of purity.” [Abu

Allah Knows best.
