Sayedina Saeed Ibn Mansoor R.A states that the, Messenger of Allah SAW said, "Whomsoever reads the four rakaats of Sunnah before Esha Namaaz, is like one who reads Tahajud at nIght,i and whomsoever reads the four Rakaats of Sunnah after Esha Namaaz, is like one who recited these four rakaats on Lailatul Qadr.After the Fardh of Esha Salaah, read two Rakaats Sunnah, in the first Rakaat, recite Ayatul Kursi till Khalidoon, (Surah Baqarah, verses 255-257) and in the second rakaat also after Surah Fateha recite,Aamanar Rasul to Kaafiroon (Surah Baqarah,Verses 285 and 286). After these two Sunnah'Also perform two Rakaats of Namaaz called Saa'dathud Daarain (Eternal Success in both the worlds). In this namaaz, in each Rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas ten times. After completing Salaam, recite
"Ya Wahaabu" 70 times.

Hazrath Khwaja Nasirudeen RA always read this namaaz followed by 300 times the first Kalima', after completing his recitation he always presented the sawaab of it to the Ahle Shijra. Immediately after this, he used to recite 301 I "Ya Allahu" It is also recommended that after Esha Namaaz one should read Surah Mulk.
This Salaah can be read upto a maximum of 12 rakaats. The procedure for performing Tahajud is as follows. In the first rakaat after Surah Fateha read Ayatul Kursi till Khalidoon accompanied with 3 times Surah Ikhlaas.
In the second rakaat, read Amanar Rasool till the end accompanied by 3 times Surah Ikhlaas. This is the first way one can recite all the twelve rakaats.
The second way is to recite 12 times Surah Ikhlaas in the first rakaat, and in every rakaat thereafter to reduce the Surah Ikhlaas by one. Until the last rakaat when there will be only one Surah Ikhlaas recited.
The third way is to recite 5 times Surah Ikhlaas after Surah Fateha, and after the Surah Ikhlaas, recite one Ruku of Surah Yusuf. Surah Yusuf has twelve ruku’s, and in the 12 rakaats the entire Surah Yusuf will be recited completely. According to various Ahadith and narrations, this Salaah is the best of all the Nafil and Voluntary Salaah. After the completion of this
Salaah, read 100 times Surah Alam Nashrah, 100 times, Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyoom and thereafter read 100 times the following Dua:
"Lillahi Mulkus Samawaati Wal Ardi Wa ma Feehinna, wa Huwa A’la Kulli Shayin Qadeer, Astaghfirullah Rabbi min kulli Dhanbin wa Khatee-atin wa Atubu ilaih, Wa As-aluhut taubah."
Thereafter recite 100 times 'Astaghfirulla' Some Mashaaikh have stated one should stay awake in the first part of the night until midnight, and then sleep till Fajr Namaaz so that the daily routine (Of Ibadah) may not be affected by the lack of sleep. Some have slept in the first half of the night and stayed awake for the remaining half so that they could perform their Ibadaath.
Hazrath Sheikh Saifudeen Kharzi R.A use to stay awake in the third part of the night, and he should then perform his Esha Salaah in Jamaat and stay awake till fajr Namaaz. Hazrath Khwaja Qutbuddin Bakhtiyaar Kaki R.A had continued this practise. Some of the pious people have remained with the wudhu they have made for Esha Namaaz till Fajr Namaaz. Sayedina Imam Abu Hanifa R.A, Sayidena Saeed Ibn Museeb R.A, Hazrath Khwaja Fuzail Bin Ayadh R.A. Our illustrious leader Hazrath Khwaja Sulaiman Tawsawi R.A and Hazrath Khwaja Muhammed Ali Shah R.A all took a rest, sleep or siesta between Esha and Tahajud Salaaah.
