Allah Desends at Night

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

At what portion of the night does Allah come down to grant our prayers?

 In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.


Abu Huraira narrates that Allah’s Apostle said, “When it is the last third of the night, our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, descends every night to the heaven of the world and says, ‘Is there anyone who invokes Me (demand anything from Me), that I may respond to his invocation; is there anyone who asks Me for something that I may give (it to) him; is there anyone who asks My forgiveness that I may forgive him?” (Sahih Al Bukhari: 8.333)

We can understand from the above Hadith that Allah descends in the last third of the night and bestows his mercy and blessings to those who ask Allah.

Only Allah knows best.
