The time your supplication find the greatest response

Abu Umamah (Radhiallaho anha) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) was asked: "At what time does the supplication find the greatest response? ''He (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) replied, "A supplication made during the middle of the last part of the night and after the conclusion of the obligatory prayers.''


"Al-'Akhir'' is the characteristic of "Jauf'' and in the present context it means the late hours of night. "Jauf'' can also mean here "middle'', that is in the later-half of the night.

In other words, if the night is divided between two equal parts then it (Jauf) would be the middle of the second part. In either case it is the time of the night which in other Ahadith has been termed as the third part of the night.

It is the time when Almighty Allah comes to descend on the sky of this world.

Prayers are also granted by Allah after the obligatory Salat.

Definition of Righteousness

An-Nawawi’s Hadith No.27

On the authority of an-Nawwas ibn Samaan (Radhi-Allahu 'anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your heart and which you dislike people finding out about.

[ It was related by Muslim ]

On the authority of Wabisa ibn Mabad (Radhi-Allahu 'anhu) who said: I came to the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi wa sallam) and he said: "You have come to ask about righteousness?"

I said: "Yes."

He (salAllahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels tranquil and the heart feels tranquil, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and moves to and fro in the breast even though people again and again have given you their legal opinion [in its favor]."

Best Deeds in Islam after having Faith in Allah swt and His Messenger (pbuh)

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was asked, "Which deed is the best?'' He (PBUH) replied,

"Faith in Allah and His Messenger.'' He (PBUH) was asked, "What is next?'' He (PBUH) replied, "Jihad (holy fighting) in the Cause of Allah.'' Then he was asked: "What is after that (in goodness)?'' He (PBUH) replied, "Hajj Mabrur (which is accepted by Allah).''

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Different acts have been regarded more meritorious in different Ahadith. For this reason, some scholars have performed the justification that the word mun "whoever" is the keynote in such cases. That is, such and such acts come in the category of eminent acts or they have been mentioned with reference to circumstances and time or place. For instance, at certain times or at certain places or for certain persons, performing Salat in the early prescribed hours is more meritorious, or Hajj through representative or Jihad is more meritorious, etc.

Some scholars are of the opinion that the eminence of different acts has been stressed keeping the person addressed in view.

Help your brother and Allah swt will help you on the Day of Resurrection

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar (Radhiallahu anhu):

Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) said,

"A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection."
