Is it necessary to have sleep to perform tahajjud prayer or can we recite following by Isha?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
It is preferred to sleep and then wake up to perform tahajjud prayers. However, if one offers the tahajjud prayers without sleeping, it would be acceptable.
And Allah knows best.
