Ruling on night prayer

The fuqaha ’differed concerning the ruling on night prayers according to several sayings, including:
  • A team went on to favor the presence of the night in general, and this is how Malik and the rest of the jurists said from the Hanafi , Shafi’i and Hanbali. [16]
  • Some followers - such as Hasan al-Basri and Ibn Sirin - held that it is obligatory to pray the night, even as much as milking a sheep, [17] which is a statement that has neither evidence nor acceptable face.
  • The jurists differed in the ruling on the night being against the Messenger of God - peace and blessings be upon him - and a group said that it has a duty, and that was what was narrated by Al-Bayhaqi from the hadith of the Messenger of God - peace and blessings be upon him - as it was proven that he said: (Three of them are obligatory upon me and you volunteer: the tujahid is the night , Witr, and Al-Duha ) , [18] and it is obligatory - upon him be upon him peace and blessings - at least any two rak'ahs, and others went to claim that he is rightly Sunnah, like other Muslims, and the owners of this group protested by the Almighty saying: (From the night, you will be tempted to go to it) , [19] they said : This is explicit in not obligatory. The companions of the first team said: He commanded him to be used to be glorified in this surah as he commanded him in the Almighty saying: (O, the one who is a practitioner * do the night only a little) , [20]And what was copied from him did not come, Mujahid said: Rather, it was a redundancy for the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, because his sin and what he delayed were forgiven for him, so his obedience was superfluous, that is: an increase in the reward, and for others an atonement for his sins. [21]

Despite this difference in the ruling on the night being the right of the Messenger of God - may peace and blessings be upon him - but the owners of these two groups agreed that it is Sunnah over other Muslims, Al-Qahtani said in explaining the principles of the rulings: (And the establishment of the night is a Sunnah confirmed by the Book and the Sunnah and the nation’s consensus).
