HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Abdullah bin `Amr (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) said, "The Salat which is dearest to Allah is that of (Prophet) Dawud (AS); and As-Saum (the fasting) which is dearest to Allah is that of (Prophet) Dawud (AS). He used to sleep half the night, get up to perform Salat for one-third of it, then sleep through the remaining one-sixth of it; and he used to observe Saum on alternative days.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: Since Islam has strictly forbidden self-affliction to the extent that it has forbidden hardship even in worship, compulsory awakening for Salat at midnight and observing Saum (fasting) for the whole month (except of the month of Ramadan) is disapproved. The model set by the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him ) is the ideal pattern of moderation in this respect. In this Hadith the fasting and the prayer of Prophet Dawud have been regarded most pleasing to Allah, because their conduct had a moderation which is enjoined by Islam.
