Tahajjud

590. Narrated Ibn 'Abbâs رضى الله عنهما : Whenever the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم got up at night to offer the Tahajjud prayer he used to say:

اللّهُمّ لَكَ الحَمْدُ, أَنْتَ قَيّمُ السّماوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنّ, وَلَكَ الحَمْدُ, لَكَ مُلْكُ السّموَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنّ, وَلَكَ الحَمْدُ, أَنْتَ نُورُ السّموَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنّ, وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ مَلِكُ السّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ, وَلَكَ الحَمْدُ, أَنْتَ الحَقّ, وَوَعْدُكَ الحَقّ, وَلِقَاؤُكَ حَقّ, وَقَوْلُكَ حَقّ, وَالجنّةُ حَقّ, وَالنّارُ حَقّ, وَالنّبِيّونَ حَقّ, وَمُحَمّدٌ صلى الله عليه وسلم حَقّ, وَالسّاعَةُ حَقّ, اللّهُمّ لَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ, وَبِكَ امَنْتُ, وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكّلْتُ, وَإلَيْكَ أَنَبْتُ, وَبِكَ خاصَمْتُ, وَإِلَيْكَ حاكَمْتُ, فَاغْفِرْ لِي ما قَدّمْتُ وَما أَخّرْتُ, وَما أَسْرَرْتُ وَما أَعْلَنْتُ, أَنْتَ المُقَدّمُ, وَأَنْتَ المُؤَخّرُ, لاَ إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ, أَوْ: لاَ إلهَ غَيْرُكَ

(O Allâh! All the praises are for You; You are the Holder of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is in them. All the praises are for You; You are the Light of the heavens and the earth; and whatever is in them, You are the King of the heavens and the earth; and whatever is in them, and all the praises are for You; You are the Truth and Your Promise is the truth; and the Meeting with You is the truth; Your Words are the truth; and Paradise is the truth; and Hell is the truth and all the Prophets (peace be upon them) are the truth. And Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) is the truth; and the Hour (Day of Resurrection) is the truth. O Allâh! I surrender to You, I believe in You and depend on You, and repent to You, and with Your Help I argue (with my opponents, the disbelievers), and I take You as a Judge (to judge between us). Please forgive me my past and future sins; and whatever I concealed and whatever I revealed; and You are the One Who makes (some people) forward and (some) backward; there is none who has the right to be worshipped but You (or, there is no other deity than You)). (Sufyân said that 'Abdul KarIm Abu Umaiyya added to the above, 'Walâ haula walâ quwata illâ billah' (There is neither might nor power except with Allâh)).
