Timing of Wazifatul Kubra


Salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I would like to ask about the Wazifatul Kubra (Salaatuun Najaah, Tahajjud, Salat ut-Tasbih, etc) mentioned in the Naqshbandi Handbook of Devotions. I know that this is supposed to be performed in tahajjud time, but my problem is I work nights and am unable to pray this. I can pray 2-4 raka’ah of tahajjud and this is all I can do during my work shift. I very much want to daily perform everything else that is mentioned in Wazifatul Kubra, but I was wondering in my situation is it possible to continue praying my 2-4 raka’ah in tahajjud time, and then between Ishraq and Zawaal can I pray the Wazifatul Kubra with the same adiya, Salaatun Najaah, Salaatut Tasbih, and replacing the tahajjud prayers with Salaatud Duha? I am sorry if my questions is not clear, please make du’a for istiqama. Jazakumullah khair.


`Alaykum Salam,

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham is praying for you. Yes, Duha makes up for night prayers.
