HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)
Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) kept standing (in prayer) so long that the skin of his feet would crack. I asked him: "Why do you do this, while you have been forgiven of your former and latter sins?'' He said, "Should I not be a grateful slave of Allah?'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith illustrates the practice of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) in respect of Qiyam-ul-Lail. It tells us that:

1. The Nafl Salat should be performed with full concentration and peace of mind.

2. The more one is endowed with gifts from Allah, the greater gratitude and worship one should express for them to Allah.

3. The best time for showing one's humility before Allah and for worship is the later period of night.

"Taste it," Pa persisted.
"Sir, the soup was made this morning of the finest ingredients."
"Taste it!"

The exasperated waiter finally relented. "All right, Sir, I'll taste it." Then after a pause he said, "Where is the spoon?"
