  • question about the night prayer/tahajjud

    Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters,

    I wanted to know, is it necessary to sleep for sometime before performing the tahajjud prayer? cause in UK night is very short in summer. so, sometimes I stay awake till Fajr and pray tahajjud before fajr. but my mother told me that it is necessary to sleep before tahajjud otherwise it would be just nafl not tahajjud. but praying tahajjud in summer is very difficult coz isha starts at 11:35 and fajr at 2:30am. so where is the time for tahajjud? and what if i dont feel sleepy? I read in Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 21, Number 248 :

    Aisha further said, "I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Do you sleep before offering the Witr prayer?' He replied, 'O 'Aisha! My eyes sleep but my heart remains awake'!"

    so my question is, if im not in deep sleep, just resting my eyes but my heart and my mind is awake. does it count as sleeping? then can I perform tahajjud?

    your answers much appreciated
    thanks
