May this reach you in great health and Imaan,
Mawlana could you please let me know according to the madhab of the anhaf, When is the correct time of ONE THIRD of the Night that (Allah Descends to the Lowest heaven), so I know when to pray the Tahajud
Also with regards to Tahajud if one doesnt know much quran could one pray two rakahs with Surah al-fil and ikhlas and another two rakahs with surah ‘alam nashra laka sadrak’ and ikhlas in second rakah, and another two rakah with surah al asr and ikhlas and another two rakah with ‘Tabat yada abeelahabu wa tab’ and ikhlas etc.?
Concerning the time of tahajjud, it is mentioned that once esha salaah is complete then the time of taghajjud commences. However in the ahaadeeth virtue of the last third of the night is regarded the special time when Allah’s Rahmah descends to the first heaven and an announcement is made -” is there any that needs forgiveness so that I forgive him , is there any person in search of sustainance so that I can provide for him…” This is calculated by dividing the night span (time from maghrib till Subh sadiq) into three and checking the last portion. However IF A PERSON CANNOT AWAKEN AT THAT TIME THEN HE SHOULD TRY AND READ IT AFTER THE PERFORMANCE OF HIS ESHA TO BE REGARDED AMONGST THE MUTAHAJJIDEEN.
As far as qiraat is concerned in salaah. ALLAH TA’AALA mentions ” Faqra’oo maa tayas sara minal qur’aan” read that which is easy (for you 0 from the qur’aan. Therefore as long as you keep the sequence in mind (which is preferable in salaah) you may read that which you want, even the repetition of a surah over and over.
And ALLAH knows best.
