Hadith Explanation


Last Third of Night


Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Every night when it is the last third of the night, our Lord, the Exalted, the Blessed, descends to the nearest heaven and says, ‘Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?’” [Bukhari]

This hadith informs us of the excellence of the last third of the night, how Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is hoping for someone to ask him for something at that time, so He may grant it to them. Although Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) hears us, watches us, and is aware of our feelings at all times, but the time before dawn is extra special.

Wake up a little before Fajr to capitalize on these moments of extraordinary nearness to Allah, the Exalted, the Blessed.
