Difference between Tahajud and Qiyamul Layl

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Jamia Binoria

What is the difference between Tahajud and Qiyamul Layl? Does one have to sleep for Tahajud?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

Both “Tahajud” and “Qiyamul Layl” are used to refer to the prayer performed after the Isha Salah. It is understood from this that both of them are names of the same prayer. Whereas, there is no need to sleep and then wake up before performing the Tahajud prayer.
And Allah knows best.
