  • Last third of the night?

    Saalam Brothers and Sisters,

    What's so special about making dua on last third of the night?

    And what time is the last third of the night?

    Jazak..

    1. This is not from the Qur’an but from an authentic hadeeth qudsi. A translation of the hadeeth is: On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), said that the Messenger of Allah () said: Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?
    It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim, Malik, at-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud). In a version by Muslim the Hadeeth ends with the words: And thus He continues till [the light of] dawn shines.

    as to when the last third is, i think its the last third of the time between maghrib and fajr divided by 3, though it may be the last third between esha and fajr divided by three.

      As-salamu `alaykum

      In order to provide ease in determining the beginning of the Last Third of the Night, I incorporated this calculation into my Salat Times page:

      http://haqqrocks.com/time.php

      This page is a free service and caters to the Muslims living in predominantly non-Muslim countries, thus the focus on the US and Europe. I'm constantly adding new non-US locations, so please be patient if your city is not listed.

      Jazakum Allah Khayr
