Trivia tuesday!

Desperate to keep myself and my readers relaxed and stress-free in light of the madness that’s going on in the world, I thought, ‘why not have some light-hearted fun that keeps us smiling and informed at the same time?’

So, daff roll please……………….(if you get the reference, you get the reference 🙂

Welcome to Trivia Tuesday!

P.S : **I need the translation of each word and an example.

As an example, you could type : “Qiyam al Layl means ____. and ____ is an example of Qiyam al Layl” in the comment section.

The first correct answer in the comments gets a prize!

*The Prize is one of these beautiful #goals journals from the debut line created by @deenandpapershop

It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, if you’re the first correct answer, I will send the journal to you by post. In shaa Allah

    Qiyamul layl is praying without going to sleep at all which starts after the ishah prayer and last untill Dawn begins .

  2. Qiyaamul-layl : staying up at night to pray
    Taraweeh : sunnah rakaat prayed in the evening after salatul isha during Ramadan
    Tahajjud : it can be offered from the end of saltul isha till when fajr enters but the best time to pray it is in the last third of the night because the salah you pray at that time is most virtuous

    1. You are right! Tahajjud and Taraweeh are both examples of Qiyam al Layl. But you didn’t say what distinguishes one from the other.Thank you for playing sis. There will be another Trivia next week so you can try again! 🙂

  5. Bismillah. Qiyaam al layl means night prayer(which could be praying, reading Quran or dhikr etc). It is an example of nawafil (super obligatory prayer or sunnah prayer) performed at night.

    Taraweeh is a type of qiyaam al layl(see above) said after isha prayer in the month of Ramadan although it literally means rest and relaxation.

    Tahajjud means praying at night(salat specifically). Most opinion of scholars take it to mean praying at night after going to sleep. It is a type of qiyaam al layl.

  6. Qiyamu layl translates to standing at night, tahajjud translates to staying awake and tarawih means alternating. Therefore, qiyamu layl and tahajjud refers to the same prayers as you have to be awake to stand for prayer at night and the tarawih prayer is specific to Ramadan where there’s usually at a little rest at some point and Imams are changed. It is a form of qiyamu layl too.
