10 EASY STEPS TO RECITING SALATUL-LAYL*
(*also known as Namaz e Shab/ Tahajjud)
(takes approx 30 minutes for the beginner)
TIME : The time for praying Salatul-Layl is from midnight (midnight is reckoned as the time which is exactly half the time between sunset and the actual dawn) to the time of Adhan for Fajr prayers.
**However, it can be prayed at anytime after Isha prayers but it is better to pray during the last part of the night near to the time of Fajr prayers.
If it is not possible to pray after midnight or before Fajr, then it can be recited in the morning or any part of the day with the niyyah (intention) of Qadha.
It is better to recite with the niyyah of Qadha during the day time than to pray in the early part of the night
The salaat is made up of Eleven Rak’ats.
1. The first 8(eight) Rak’ats are prayed as normal in pairs of two Rak’ats each with the niyyah of Nawafilatul-Layl.
2. The next 2 (two) Rak’ats are prayed with the Niyyah of 'Salatul Shaf’a'.
3. The remaining 1(one) Rak’at is prayed (as below)with the Niyyah of 'Salatul Witr.'
In the last one Rak’at, Qunoot is recited before Rukuu and the Salat is completed as usual with Tashahud and Salaam.
The last one Rak’at of Witr is prayed as follows:
i)Make Niyyah and say Takbiratul Ihram.
ii)Recite following surahs:
Surah Al-Hamd; once
Surah Qul Huwallahu Ahad - three times;
Surah Qul-Audhubi Rabbil Falaq - once;
Surah Qul-Audhubi Rabbin Naas - once.
Note: If one does not know the last two Surahs mentioned above, then it is sufficient to recite Surah Qul Huwallahu Ahad, three times.
4) Say Takbir and raise hands for Qunoot.:-
You may recite any Dua. However, it is recommended to recite the following Dua in qunoot
