Receiving the reward of Tahajjud Salah simply by intending to wake up

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is the following narration authentic?

“Whoever goes to bed and has a firm intention to wake up and pray during the night [Tahajjud Salah], but is overwhelmed by sleep until morning comes, will get the reward for what he intended and that sleep will be a sadaqah from Allah”

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Majah and others have recorded this narration.

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1344)

‘Allamah Mundhiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound. Imam Ibn Hibban has also declared a similar Hadith authentic.

(Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 60, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 2588. Also see Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 1172 and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 311)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
