brightness_1 The Prophet (PBUH) would recite the last ten verses of Soorat Āl-‘Imrān (Chapter no. 3 of the Holy Qur’ān)

The above three Sunan are mentioned in an agreed upon Hadeeth narrated by Ibn ‘Abbāss who said, “I spent a night with my aunt Maymoonah the wife of the Prophet (PBUH) , may Allāh be pleased with her. I lay down across the cushion and the Messenger of Allāh (PBUH) and his wife were laying along it. The Prophet (PBUH) slept until midnight, or a little before, or a little after, then woke up, and began to rub the sleep from his face with his hand. He then recited the last ten verses of Soorat Āl-‘Imrān, then got up and went to a water skin that was hanging up and performed ablution from it, performing it well, and then he stood up and prayed ...” (Al-Bukhāriy no.183, Muslim no. 763)

In another narration reported by Imām Muslim it said, “The Prophet (PBUH) woke up near the end of the night, went out and looked at the sky, and then recited,

{ إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لآيَاتٍ لِّأُوْلِي الألْبَابِ }

‘Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of intellect.’ (Soorat Āl-‘Imrān, Verse 190)(Muslim no. 256)

In Muslim’s narration, it is illustrated that in order to practice this Sunnah one should recite the last ten verses of Soorat Āl-‘Imrān, beginning at

{ إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ }

until the end of the Soorah. (Soorat Āl-‘Imrān, Verses 190-200)
