Making a vow to perform tahajjud

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: The way before I made a prayer that if I succeed in so and so I will try my level best to offer tahajjud regularly. So if for some reason I skip a day or days then did I commit a sin? Offering tahajjud regularly for the sake of mannat, does this make the reward of tahajjud any less? I made supplication like this “Allah apne kamyaabi di to mein tahajjud ki pabandi karney ki puri koshish karungi “



  1. You will not be sinful by missing your tahajjud.
  2. The reward of tahajjud will not decrease in any way.

نذر السنن و أتى بالمنذور فهو السنة

قوله ( فهو السنة ) لأن النذر لا يخرجها عن كونها سنة كما لو شرع فيها ثم قطعها ثم أداها كانت سنة وزادت وصف الوجوب بالقطع
