Specifically, there are three important things about "how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?" which I will explain in this article. The three important things I mean are as follows:

The Best Rakats for Tahajjud Prayer

The first important thing about “how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?” what I will explain now is the best rakats for Tahajjud prayer. I want you to understand all of that first before you read more explanations in this article because those are some of the important things in this discussion that must be understood well.

Before I explain the best rakats for Tahajjud prayer, I will quote some hadiths related to this discussion. Some of the hadiths I mean are as follows:

عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَر رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا : أَنَّ رَجُلاً جَاءَ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَهُوَ يَخْطُبُ ، فَقَالَ : كَيْفَ صَلَاةُ اللَّيْلِ ؟ فَقَالَ : مَثْنَى مَثْنَى، فَإِذَا خَشِيتَ الصُّبْحَ فَأَوْتِرْ بِوَاحِدَةٍ ، تُوتِرُ لَكَ مَا قَدْ صَلَّيْتَ

From Ibn Umar radliyallahu anhuma, “A man came to the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam while he was delivering the sermon and asked him how to offer the night prayers. The Prophet replied, 'Pray two rakats at a time and then two and then two and so on and if you are afraid of dawn (the approach of the time of the Fajr prayer) pray one rakat and that will be the with for all the rakats which you have prayed."

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : كَانَتْ عِنْدِي امْرَأَةٌ مِنْ بَنِي أَسَدٍ فَدَخَلَ عَلَىَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ ‏:‏ مَنْ هَذِهِ ؟‏ قُلْتُ فُلاَنَةُ لاَ تَنَامُ بِاللَّيْلِ‏ .‏ فَذُكِرَ مِنْ صَلاَتِهَا . فَقَالَ : مَهْ عَلَيْكُمْ مَا تُطِيقُونَ مِنَ الأَعْمَالِ ، فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يَمَلُّ حَتَّى تَمَلُّوا ‏‏

From Aisha radliyallahu anha, she said, “A woman from the tribe of Bani Asad was sitting with me and Allah's Apostle (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam came to my house and said, "Who is this?" I said, "(She is) So and so. She does not sleep at night because she is engaged in prayer." The Prophet said, "disapprovingly: Do (good) deeds which is within your capacity as Allah never gets tired of giving rewards till you get tired of doing good deeds."

عَنْ أَبِي الْعَبَّاسِ ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عَمْرٍو رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا ـ قَالَ لِيْ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :‏ أَلَمْ أُخْبَرْ أَنَّكَ تَقُومُ اللَّيْلَ وَتَصُومُ النَّهَارَ ‏؟ قُلْتُ : إِنِّي أَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ‏ .‏ قَالَ : فَإِنَّكَ إِذَا فَعَلْتَ ذَلِكَ هَجَمَتْ عَيْنُكَ وَنَفِهَتْ نَفْسُكَ ، وَإِنَّ لِنَفْسِكَ حَقٌّ ، وَلأَهْلِكَ حَقٌّ ، فَصُمْ وَأَفْطِرْ ، وَقُمْ وَنَمْ ‏‏

From Abu al-Abbas, he said, "I've heard Abdullah bin Amr bin al-Ash radiyallahu anhuma say, "Once Allah's Messenger (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said to me, "I have been informed that you offer Salat (prayer) all the night and observe Saum (fast) during the day." I said, "(Yes) I do so." He said, "If you do so, your eye sight will become weak and you will become weak. No doubt, your body has right on you, and your family has right on you, so observe Saum (for some days) and do not observe it (for some days), offer Salat (for sometime) and then sleep."

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : دَخَلَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَإِذَا حَبْلٌ مَمْدُودٌ بَيْنَ السَّارِيَتَيْنِ فَقَالَ :‏ مَا هَذَا الْحَبْلُ ؟‏ قَالُوا هَذَا حَبْلٌ لِزَيْنَبَ فَإِذَا فَتَرَتْ تَعَلَّقَتْ‏ .‏ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏:‏ لاَ ، حُلُّوهُ ، لِيُصَلِّ أَحَدُكُمْ نَشَاطَهُ ، فَإِذَا فَتَرَ فَلْيَقْعُدْ ‏‏

From Anas bin Malik radliyallahu anhu, he said, “Once the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam entered the Mosque and saw a rope hanging in between its two pillars. He said, “What is this rope?” The people said, "This rope is for Zainab who, when she feels tired, holds it (to keep standing for the prayer.)" The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Don't use it. Remove the rope. You should pray as long as you feel active, and when you get tired, sit down."

All readers! If we understand some of the hadiths above, we can conclude that the best rakats for Tahajjud prayer are rakats that does not burden us. We should not force ourselves to do a lot of rakats in Tahajjud prayer if we are not able to do it all.

That is a brief explanation of the best rakats for Tahajjud prayer. As Muslims, we must understand that.

How Many Rakats Did Prophet Pray for Tahajjud?

The second important thing is about “how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?” what I'm going to explain now is a specific answer. So, I really hope you read the explanation below very well.

Before I explain the answer to this question (how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?), I will quote some hadiths that are specifically related to it. Some of the hadiths I mean are as follows:

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا , قَالَتْ : كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُصَلِّي مِنَ اللَّيْلِ ثَلاَثَ عَشْرَةَ رَكْعَةً مِنْهَا الْوِتْرُ وَرَكْعَتَا الْفَجْرِ‏‏

From Aisha radiyallahu anha, she said, "The Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed at night as many as thirteen rakats of which were Witr prayer and two rakats in Fajr prayer."

The above hadith explains that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam prayed at night up to thirteen rakats of which were rakat for the Witr prayer and two rakats for Fajr prayer. So, we can assume that he performed ten rakats in Tahajjud prayer.

عَنْ مَسْرُوقٍ ، قَالَ : سَأَلْتُ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا عَنْ صَلاَةِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِاللَّيْلِ‏ .‏ فَقَالَتْ : سَبْعٌ وَتِسْعٌ وَإِحْدَى عَشْرَةَ سِوَى رَكْعَتَىِ الْفَجْرِ‏‏

From Masruq, he said, "I have asked Aisha radiyallahu anha about the prayer of the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at night. She then said, "Seven (rakats), or nine (rakats), or eleven (rakats) apart from two rakats in Fajr prayer."

The hadith above explains that sometimes Prophet Muhammad sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam prayed at night up to seven rakats, nine rakats, or eleven rakats. These rakats are in addition to the two rakats in Fajr prayer. So, we can assume that he performed six rakats or eight rakats, or ten rakats in Tahajjud prayer.

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا , قَالَ : كَانَ صَلاَةُ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ثَلاَثَ عَشْرَةَ رَكْعَةً‏ (‏ يَعْنِي بِاللَّيْلِ‏)‏

From Ibn Abbas radliyallahu anhuma, he said, "The prayer of Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam was thirteen rakats (meaning he prayed at night)."

The above hadith explains that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed at night until thirteen rakats. Witr prayer and Tahajjud prayers are some of the prayers he does at night. So, we can assume that he performed twelve rakats in Tahajjud prayer and one rakat in Witr prayer.

All readers! If we read some of the hadiths above, we can conclude that the number of rakats performed by Prophet Muhammad for Tahajjud prayer was different. Sometimes he does six rakats. Sometimes he does eight rakats. Sometimes he does ten rakats. Sometimes he does twelve rakats.

That is a brief explanation of "how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?". As Muslims, we must understand that.

Prophet's Dua After Tahajjud Prayer

The third important thing about "how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?" what I will explain now is Prophet's dua after Tahajjud prayer. I want you to understand that at the end of this discussion because it is one of the important things that you must understand after you understand everything I have explained before.

Before I explain Prophet's dua after Tahajjud prayer, I will quote a hadith that specifically explains it. One hadith I am referring to is as follows:

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا قَامَ مِنَ اللَّيْلِ يَتَهَجَّدُ قَالَ :‏ اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ قَيِّمُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيْهِنَّ , وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ ، لَكَ مُلْكُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيْهِنَّ ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ , أَنْتَ نُورُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ , أَنْتَ الْحَقُّ ، وَوَعْدُكَ الْحَقُّ ، وَلِقَاؤُكَ حَقٌّ ، وَقَوْلُكَ حَقٌّ ، وَالْجَنَّةُ حَقٌّ ، وَالنَّارُ حَقٌّ ، وَالنَّبِيُّونَ حَقٌّ ، وَمُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ حَقٌّ ، وَالسَّاعَةُ حَقٌّ ، اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ ، وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ ، وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْتُ ، وَبِكَ خَاصَمْتُ ، وَإِلَيْكَ حَاكَمْتُ ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ ، وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ ، أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ ، لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ ـ ( أَوْ لاَ إِلَهَ غَيْرُكَ ) ‏

From Ibn Abbas radliyallahu anhuma, he said, "When the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam wakes up at night, he performs the Tahajjud prayer and prays, "O Allah, all praise be to You. You are the ruler of all the heavens and the earth and all the creatures in them. All praise to You. All the kingdoms of heaven and earth and everything in them are yours. All praise to You. You are the light of all heaven and earth. All praise to You. You are the True God. Your promise is true. Meeting You is true. Your word is true. Heaven is true. Hell is True. On the Prophet is true. Muhammad sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam is true. Doomsday is true. O Allah, only to You I surrender. Only in You I have faith. Only to You I put my trust. Only to You I represent. It's only because of you that I fight. And only to You I ask for justice. Forgive the sins I have committed and have not committed, the sins that I have committed secretly and openly. You are God who puts first and ends. There is no god but You."

All readers! I want you to pay attention to the hadith above. There are several sentences that I bolded in the hadith above. The sentences that I bolded are Prophet's dua after Tahajjud prayer. We can read the dua after Tahajjud prayer.

That is a brief explanation of Prophet's dua after Tahajjud prayer. As Muslims, we must understand that.

All readers! That is a brief explanation of "how many rakats did Prophet pray for Tahajjud?" and some important things about it. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!

I think that's enough for this article. May be useful. Amen.
