رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): ما زالَ جَبرَئيلُ يُوصِيني بقيامِ اللَّيلِ حَتّى ظَنَنتُ أنَّ خِيارَ أُمَّتي لَن يَنامُوا مِن اللَّيلِ إلّا قليلاً.

رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): رَحِمَ اللّه‏ُ رَجلاً قامَ مِنَ الليلِ فَصلّى وأيقَظَ امرَأتَهُ فَصَلَّت، فإن أبَت نَضَحَ في وَجهِها الماءَ . رَحِمَ اللّه‏ُ امرأةً قامَت مِنَ اللَّيلِ فَصَلَّت وأيقَظَت زَوجَها، فإن أبى نَضَحَت في وَجهِهِ الماءَ.

Allah has mercy on the man who wakes up in the night to pray, and wakes his wife so she too prays, and sprinkles water on her face if she refuses to get up. And Allah has mercy on the woman who wakes up in the night to pray, and wakes her husband to pray too, and sprinkles water on his face if he refuses to get up.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Sunan e Abi Dawood, p. 145; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 636

رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): إنَّ العَبدَ إذا تَخَلّى بِسَيِّدِهِ في جَوفِ اللَّيلِ المُظلِمِ وناجاهُ، أثبَتَ اللّه‏ُ النورَ في قَلبِهِ ... ثُمّ يقولُ جَلَّ جلالُهُ لِملائكَتِهِ: يا ملائكَتي، اُنظُرُوا إلى عَبدِي، فقد تَخَلّى بي في جَوفِ اللَّيلِ المُظلِمِ والبطّالونَ لاهُونَ، والغافِلونَ نِيامٌ، اشهَدُوا أنّي قد غَفَرتُ لَهُ .

Verily when a servant withdraws to be alone with his Master in the middle of the dark night and intimately converses with Him, Allah places divine light into his heart…then He, Exalted be His Splendour, says to His angels, ‘O My angels, look at My servant how he seeks solitude to be with Me in the middle of the dark night while the worthless ones remain heedless and the negligent ones sleep. Witness that verily I have forgiven him
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Amali al-Saduq, p. 230, no. 9; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 636

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): قيامُ اللَّيلِ مَصَحَّةٌ لِلبَدَنِ، ومَـرضـاةٌ لِلـرَّبِّ عَزَّ وجلَّ، وتَعَـرُّضٌ للرَّحمَةِ، وتَمَسُّكٌ بأخلاقِ النَّبِيِّينَ.

Standing to pray in the night is conducive to the health of the body, is a source of pleasure for the Lord, exposes one to [the descent of] divine mercy, and is adherence to the moral virtues of the prophets.
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 87, p. 143, no. 17; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 637

عن الإمام عليّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): ما تَرَكتُ صلاةَ اللَّيلِ منذُ سَمِعتُ قولَ النبيِّ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): صلاةُ اللَّيلِ نُورٌ . فقالَ ابنُ الكَوّاءِ: ولا ليلةَ الهَريرِ ؟ قالَ: ولا ليلةَ الهَرِيرِ.

I have never left the night prayer since I heard the Prophet (SAWA) say that the night prayer is a light.’ Ibn al-Kawwa’ asked, ‘Not even on the night of al-Harir?’ [al-Harir: a celebrated battle between two tribes (ed.)] to which he replied, ‘Not even on the night of al-Harir
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 41, p. 17, no. 10; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 637

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): شَرَفُ المُؤمِنِ صلاتُهُ بالليلِ، وعِزُّ المؤمِنِ كَفُّهُ عن أعراضِ الناسِ.

A believer’s dignity lies in his standing for the night prayer, and his honour lies in abstaining from [tarnishing] other people’s good reputations.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
al-Kafi, v. 3, p. 488, no. 9; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 637

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): لا تَدَعْ قِيامَ اللَّيلِ، فإنَّ المَغبونَ مَن غُبِنَ قِيامَ اللَّيلِ

Do not leave the night prayer, for verily the one who is truly duped is the one who has lost out on the night prayer.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Ma`ani al-Akhbar, p. 342, no. 1; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 637

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): ما مِن عَمَلٍ حَسَنٍ يَعمَلُهُ العَبدُ إلّا ولَهُ ثَوابٌ في القرآنِ إلّا صلاةَ اللَّيلِ؛ فإنَّ اللّه‏َ لَم يُبَيِّنْ ثَوابَها لِعَظيمِ خَطَرِها عندَهُ، فقالَ: «تَتَجافى جُنُوبُهم عَن المَضاجِعِ يَدْعُونَ رَبَّهُمْ خَوْفاً وَ طَمَعاً وَ مِمَّا رَزَقْنَـهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ - فلا تَعْلَمُ نَفسٌ ما أُخْفِيَ لَهُم مِن قُرَّةِ أعْيُنٍ جَزاءً بِما كانوا يَعمَلونَ».

Every single good deed that the servant carries out has a reward mentioned for it in the Qur’an except for the night prayer, for verily Allah has not expressed its reward because of the great significance it holds with Him. Thus, He says, “Their sides vacate their beds to supplicate their Lord in fear and hope …No one knows what has been kept hidden for them of comfort as a reward for what they used to do”[ Qur’an 32:16].

That a person came to him and expressed his wish. He was about to complain of his starvation when Imam asked him, “Do you offer Salaat-e-Shab?” He said, “Yes.” Imam turned to him and said, “He is a liar that claims to offer Salaat-e-Shab and says that he has to starve during the day, because the Almighty Allah has guaranteed the sustenance of the day in the Salaat-e-Shab.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 72

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said, “Salaat-e-Shab is related to the safety of body, pleasure of Lord, character of the prophets and it attracts the Mercy of Allah.”
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 72

The narrator says, “I heard him say that ,If one gets up at night after turning to his left and right in such a state that his chin is touching his chest (out of tiredness), Allah orders the doors of heavens to be opened and says to His angels: ‘Look at this servant of Mine. He is going to perform what is not even obligatory for him. He can expect three things from Me – that I forgive all his sins, I give him a chance to repent once again and increase his earnings. I hold you all angels as witness that I would grant all these things to him’.”

“It is possible that a person lies and is deprived of his sustenance.” The narrator asked, “How can he be deprived of his sustenance?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “By getting deprived from Salaat-e-Shab. One who is deprived of Salaat-e-Shab is (also) deprived of his sustenance.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 73

“The houses, in which the Holy Quran is recited along with Salaat-e-Shab appear bright to the people of heaven in the same way as stars appear to the people of the world.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 73

Explains the statement of Allah that ‘Good deeds destroy sins’ by saying, “The Salaat offered by a believer at night destroys the sins committed by him during the day.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 73

Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) narrates from his father that a person asked the reward of remaining awake at night and reciting the Holy Quran to Amirul Momineen (a.s.). Amirul Momineen (a.s.) replied, “There are glad tidings for him. One who offers Salaat in one-tenth part of night seeking reward from Allah, the Almighty Allah says to His angels, ‘Note down the good deeds for this servant of Mine equal to the number of all the grains, leaves, trees and meadows’. One who offers Salaat for one-ninth part of night Allah grants him ten recommended supplications and hands over his scroll of deeds on the Day of Judgment in his right hand. One who offers Salaat for one-eighth part of night Almighty Allah grants him the reward of a martyr who was patient and had pure intention and Almighty Allah would also accept his intercession. One who offers Salaat for one-seventh part of night he would come out of his grave in such a state that his face would be shinning like a full moon and he would pass on the Sirat Bridge along with the protected ones of Allah. One who offers Salaat for one-sixth part of night would be counted among those who repent and his sins committed in past and future would be forgiven. One who spends one-fifth part of night offering Salaat would get a place in Maqbara-e-Ibrahim (a.s.). One who offers Salaat for one-fourth part of night would be considered first among the successful people for he would pass through the Sirat Bridge like a strong wind and enter Paradise without accounting of his deeds. One who offers Salaat for one-third part of night every angel whom he will meet will say to him, ‘I wish even my position would have been so near to Allah like yours’. That person would be given the choice of entering Paradise through any of the eight doors. One who offers Salaat for half part of night giving him whole earth filled with gold seventy thousand times would not be sufficient as his reward. The reward of this deed is more than that of freeing seventy slaves from the progeny of Ismail (a.s.). One who prays for two-third part of a night would be given rewards equal to the number of grains of sand on earth and the weight of smallest deed would be equal to that of Mt. Ohad. One who involves himself in Salaat, Ruku and recitation of the Holy Quran he would be given a great reward. The smallest reward given to him is that he would be cleansed of his sins as he was on the day he was born. He would be given rewards and positions equal to the number of all creatures of Allah. His grave would remain illuminated forever. Sins and jealousy would be removed from his heart. He would be given salvation from the chastisement of grave. He would be given freedom from Hell. All those who were in his protection would be resurrected along with him. The Almighty Allah will say to the angels, ‘O My angels! See this servant of Mine. He used to remain awake at night for the sake of My pleasure. Give him peace in Paradise. There are a hundred thousand cities in Paradise for him and all of them have all the things required to satisfy the desires of the eyes and the hunger of one’s heart. You won’t believe that I am going to give him more honor and proximity to Myself’.”
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 73/74/75

“One who recites Astaghfirullaaha wa atoobu ilaih seventy times in Salaat-e-Witr for one year the Almighty Allah will write him among those who repent at dawn and it will become obligatory on Allah, the Mighty and Sublime to forgive him.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 222
