Dhikr or remembering Allah by praising Him is important to do for every Muslim. Some of them believe that by doing it they may get some blessing from Allah. Doing it after regular prayer is better than nothing at all.

Yet, some Muslims believe that doing Dhikr after Tahajjud will bring more benefits. They also believe this about the night prayer. They believe that Allah is closer to them during their night prayer on Tahajjud. They think of the Dhikr as a more solemn occasion.

Speaking of the benefits of Dhikr after Tahajjud, here we have some of them based on the Quran. They will enchant you. Check them out below!

Muslims believe by doing Tahajjud is a part of Muslim behavior that shows how good the person is. Reciting verses from the Quran or hadith during Dhikr may help someone complete that. That’s one reason why dhikr is important in Islam. Muslims can benefit from reciting Allahu Akbar 100 times.

In verses 63-64 of the surah Al Furqan, the Quran mentions the following:

“As for the servants of the Most Merciful God, they are people who walk the earth humbly and when ignorant people greet them (with insulting words), they say “salam,” and those who spend the night worshiping their Lord prostrating and standing.” (QS 25: 63-64)

وَمِنَ الَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهٖ نَافِلَةً لَّكَۖ عَسٰٓى اَنْ يَّبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُوْدًا – ٧٩

“And on some nights, perform the extra Tahajjud (as an act of worship) prayer for yourself: hopefully your Lord will raise you to a commendable place.” (QS 17:79)

Some Muslims believe that praying after their Tahajjud prayer can be more solemn. That makes some of them seek mercy from Allah, whether for their past or present, whether done on purpose or not.

قَالَ رَبِّ اِنِّيْ ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِيْ فَاغْفِرْ لِيْ فَغَفَرَ لَهٗ ۗاِنَّهٗ هُوَ الْغَفُوْرُ الرَّحِيْمُ – ١٦

“He (Moses) prayed, “O my Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me.” So He (Allah) forgave him. Indeed, Allah, He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.” (QS 28:16)

“And (remember the story of) Zun Nun (Yunus), when he left angry, then he thought that We would not make it difficult for him, so he prayed in a very dark state, “There is no god but You, Glory to You. Indeed, I am of the wrongdoers.” So We accepted his (prayer) and We saved him from grief. And thus We save those who believe.” (QS 21: 87-88)

“Allah has sent down the best (i.e.) a similar Qur’an (verses) over and over again, reminding those who fear their Lord, then be calm and careful when remembering Allah. That is Allah’s guidance, with that Book He guides whomever He wills. And whoever is left astray by Allah, then no one can guide.” (QS 39:23)

قُمِ الَّيۡلَ اِلَّا قَلِيۡلًا ۙ‏
نِّصۡفَهٗۤ اَوِ انْقُصۡ مِنۡهُ قَلِيۡلًا ۙ‏
اَوۡ زِدۡ عَلَيۡهِ وَرَتِّلِ الۡقُرۡاٰنَ تَرۡتِيۡلًا ؕ‏

“O you who wraps himself [in clothing], arise [to pray] the night, except for a little – half of it – or subtract from it a little or add to it, and recite the Qur’an with measured recitation” (Quran 73:1-4).
