Night Vigil

Volume I

Oil lamp in a glass

Arranged and comments
Abdulkader Ali Alhadad


Surah 24 Al Nur
Verse 35 & 36
Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.
The parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche
And within it a Lamp:
The Lamp enclosed in glass;
The glass as it were a brilliant star:
Lit from a blessed tree, an Olive,
Neither of the East nor of the West,
Whose oil is well-nigh luminous,
Though fire scarce touched it:
Light upon Light!
Allah do guide whom He will to His light:
Allah do set forth parables for men:
And Allah do know all things.
(Lit is such a light) in houses,
Which Allah have permitted to be raised to honour;
For the celebration, in them, of his name:
In them is He glorified in the mornings
And in the evenings, (again and again).

To inspire (oneself) upon getting up at night

The Sheikh, the Imam, the learned, the virtuous in religion [Affifuddin]
and who is a blessing for the Muslims, Abu Muhammad, Abdullah bin
Abdurrahman bin Abi Bakr Balhaaj Ba Fadhal quotes the following
verses of the Quran in his book entitled “The Light and Guidance of the
Secrets of Getting Up at Night and the period before day break”
(relating to the excellence of Qiyam and the merits of those people, who
perform Qiyamul Layl on a regular basis.)

Allah S.W.T said in Surah 17 Al’Isra Verse 78-79

the night and the morning’s prayer and readings: for the prayer and
reading in the morning carry their testimony.

79. And pray in the small watches of the morning (it would be an
additional prayer (of spiritual benefit) for you, soon will Your Lord raise
you to a station of praise and glory.”
LR 11 - Chapter I

We added verse 78 to emphasize that Allah, the Exalted, highlighted the
timings as to when to perform these deeds. Allah S.W.T then went on to
describe the deeds to be performed such as the supererogatory prayers
and reciting the Quran, both of which carry great testimony and
rewards. The Station of Praise and Glory is reserved for the Prophet
s.a.w and the Righteous, those closest to him, those who would go
straight to the heavens without being question.

And in Surah 51 atDhariyat Verse 17:

.∆‰ îV

“They (the pious) used to sleep but little at night.”
There are many other verses of the Quran emphasizing the importance
of the Night vigil include Surah 51 ad-Dhariyat Verses 15 -23, Allah
S.W.T reminds us of the rewards for those who practices the Sufi way
and who are the Righteous?:

Surah 51 ad-Dhariyat:
(15) As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and
Springs. (16) Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them,
because, before then, they lived a good life. (17) They were in the
habit of sleeping but little by night. (18) And in the hours of early
dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (19) And in their
wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy), him
who asked, and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from
asking). (20) On the earth are Signs for those of assured Faith, (21) As
also in your own selves: will ye not then see? (22) And in heaven is
your Sustenance, as (also) that which you are promised. (23) Then, by
the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact
that you can speak intelligently to each other.

And in Surah 32 asSajdah Verse 16, Allah, the Exalted, describes the
believers who deserve a place in the heaven [Jannah] saying:

“They (the believers) forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and
hope; and they spend out of what We have bestowed on them.”
The word ‘forsake’ indicates that this act of performing the
Night Vigil is an extreme difficult task. Only a few will received the
guidance [hidayah] from the Lord of the Universe to perform it.
A difficult task requires planning which include a carefully
execute routine to prepare oneself to achieve the final objective.

Doa After Reciting The Beautiful Names of Allah

1. Let there be a perpetual blessings and peace in every instant and
forever as many as the signs of Your existence upon our leader
Muhammad and his family members, and (O Lord) show mercy
upon us and all Muslims, (O Lord) safe guard us and all
Muslims, (O Lord) assist us and all Muslims, (O Lord) comfort
us and all Muslims, (O Lord) hurry and wipe out the enemies of
the piety and godliness, and (O Lord) grant us and our love ones,
in this instant, and at all times, always and forever, what (You)
bestowed upon Your obedient servants in every moment always
and forever in good and the best of health in the two worlds (the
current world and the hereafter).

2. And open for us the apertures to the knowledgeable, enrich us
with what You Permit [Halal] instead of what you forbidden
[Haram], and (make us) obedient to You and not commit sin
[maksiat] towards You, over and above whereof nothing more
we ask for than this. And show and guide us the way to good
deeds and character, and no one knows better than You. And
remove from those deeds anything sinful, for no one can remove
it but You.

3. O Lord, cherish us with Your complete forgiveness, and grant us
good health, and security in our religious duties, worldly affairs,
family, properties and wealth. O Lord, hide all our faults and
shield our negative desires and feelings. And spare us all the
grossness of the ignoble insanity, always endow us with the love
and happiness of the two homes.
