The Prophet (PBUH) used to offer Tahajjud frequently, which increases its importance a Muslim’s routine, as he stated:

“The best of prayers after the prescribed prayers is prayer in the depths of the night, and the best of fasting after the month of Ramadan is fasting the month of Allah, Muharram.”  (Muslim)

Tahajjud is a great way of getting Allah`s closest attention, which is the key towards piety and faithfulness. The Messenger (PBUH) has regarded this Salah as a source of getting rid of negative influence and being able to attain almost all kinds of desires and aspirations.

“Every night when it is the last third of the night, Our Lord, the Superior, 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 that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?” (Collected by Bukhari and Muslim)

The benefits of Tahajjud begin with Wudu itself because of the pure intention the believer makes in performing the prayer, all the while eradicating any influence of Shaytaan. It is one of the ultimate ways of getting closer to Allah as He likes this act of worship and speaks to His Angels about it. He tells them that He will grant His believers with whatever they wish for.
