The Prophet (S) said: ‘Whoever awakes at night and then says:
‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah,
alone without associate, to Him belongs sovereignty and praise and He is
over all things wholly capable. How perfect Allaah is, and all praise is
for Allaah, and none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, Allaah is
the greatest and there is no power nor might except with Allaah. The Most High, The Supreme.
…and then supplicates:
‘O my Lord forgive me.‘
…will be forgiven‘
Al-Waleed said, 'or he (S) said: ‘ and then asks, he will be answered. If he then performs ablution and prays, his prayer will be accepted‘.'
