Re: Bravenet Form Processor Fiqh Q&A

Question:  what is the best time for offering  tahajuud ? how many rakaats have we to pray.i usually pray 4 rakats at 4am .the fajar salaat in our masjid is at 5.20 am . is it ok to pray tahajjud at this time please advise.

Answer: Its best time is the last 3rd of the night. It is 2 rak^ahs or more. Praying at the time you specified is fine. The main thing is that you sleep before it, even if you prayed it before the last 3rd of the night.
