Jabir Ibn Abdullah, may Allah be leased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said (relating what Jibreel, alaihi salaam, said when he came to him):-
"...and know that Sharaf (honor and nobility) of the believer lies in his qiyamul layl (standing in Tahajjud), and
his 'Izzah (dignified greatness) lies in being needless (and independent) from the people". [Al-Hakim, 3289/ Tabarani, 4278].
The more we stand before Allahu, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, in the silent depths of the nights-- seeking His help and relying on Him alone--the more we feel content and certain of being granted provision; the less we rely on peolpe around us or worry about what they possess.
In view of the foregoing, I wish to share with you the attached file on the excellence, merits and secrets of the Night prayer... the Tahajjud... for your perusal and use. Open it and see the Treasure it contains. May Allah, Ever-Glorious Lord of the Universe, bless us by being among those servants of His who engage in the Night Prayer always... ameen.
