Salat al Layl ska bes mellan 12 på natten och morgonbönen. Jag känner en annan version än den Salat al Watir som omnämns här som är lika lång. Jag orkade tyvärr inte översätta så ni får nöja er med den engelska versionen.
In His Name, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
اَللهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّآلِ مُحَمّ
[THE HOLY QUR’AN: 17:79]
While advising Imam ‘Ali (a.s.), the Prophet repeated three times, “’Alayka Bis-Salatul-Layl” which means, “incumbent upon you (O! Ali) is Salat al-Layl.” This Hadith underscores further the importance of Salatul-Layl. Therefore, we should try never to miss it.
By praying Salat al-Layl one’s livelihood is increased, one passes easily through “Sakaraat” (great and grueling pain a dying person suffers at the time of death) and finds happiness in “Barzakh” (the Spiritual world where the departed souls stay either in happiness or misery, until the Day of Resurrection).
Imam Jaffar Sadiq (a.s.) quotes Imam Ali (a.s.) as saying that the Prophet (s.a.w.w.) said that a person who prays Salat al-Layl gets the following twenty four kinds of benefits:
The time for praying Salat al-Layl is from midnight (midnight is reckoned as the time which is exactly half the time between sunset and the actual dawn) to the time of Adhan for Fajr prayers. However, it can be prayed at anytime after Isha prayers but it is better to pray during the last part of the night near to the time of Fajr prayers. If it is not possible to pray after midnight or before Fajr, then it can be prayed in the morning or any part of the day with the niyyah (intention) of Qadha. It is better to pray with the niyyah of Qadha during the day time than to pray in the early part of the night.
NOTE: According to Ayatullah Al-Sistani Dama-Dhilluhu, the time for Salaat al-Layl is from midnight to the Adhan time for Fajr prayers. However, it is better to pray near the time of Fajr prayers. Anyone who finds it difficult to pray Salaat al-Layl after midnight can pray before midnight.
Salaat al-Layl is made up of eleven Rak’ats.
In the last one Rak’at, Qunoot is recited before Rukuu and the Salaat is completed as usual with Tashahhud and Salaam. The last one Rak’at is prayed as follows:
Hold Tasbih in the right hand for keeping count of the Dhikr mentioned below to be recited.
Make Niyyah and say Takbiratul Ihram.
Recite: Surah Al-Hamd;
Surah Qul Huwallahu Ahad – three times;
Surah Qul-Audhubi Rabbil Falaq – once;
Surah Qul-Audhubi Rabbin Naas – once.
Note: If one does not know the last two Surahs mentioned above, then it is sufficient to recite Surah Qul Huwallahu Ahad, three times.
Say Takbir and raise both hands for Qunoot.

There is none worth worshipping but Allah Who is Most High and Great
Glory be to Allah, Who is the Sustainer of the seven heavens and of the seven earth
And Who is the Sustainer of all the things in them, and between them,

And all praise for Allah, the Sustainer of the worlds.
|Allaahummagh Firli… (Name)||اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ ل…|
|O Allah, forgive … giving the names of Mu’mineen/Mu’minaat.
(In each case saying, Allahummagh Firli …….)
|Astaghfirullah Rabbi wa Atuubu Ilayh||اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ رَبِّي وَ اَتُوْبُ اِلَيْهِ|
|I seek forgiveness of Allah my Lord and I turn to Him|
Haadhaa Maqaamul ‘Aaidhi Bika Minannaar
|هذَا مَقَامُ الْعَآئِذِ بِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ|
|This is the position of one who seeks refuge in You from the fire [of Hell]|
|(I ask for) forgiveness|
Finally, complete the Salat in the normal way by going to Rukuu’ followed by Sajdah, Tashahhud and Salaam, ending Salaat al-Layl.
As a Ta’kibaat after the Salat, recite
34 times Allahu Akbar;
33 times Al-Hamdu Lillah:
33 times Subhanallah,
The blessed month of Ramadhan is at our doorstep. It offers a good opportunity and convenient time to pray Salatul Layl, especially when the time of commencing the fast is favorable. Allah [s.w.t.] gives abundant reward for all our acts of worship during this blessed month, therefore, we need to make special efforts to pray the Salaat and keep it up for the rest of the year to raise our level of spirituality.
