Tahajjud is an honour. It feels like He choose you to be with Him. He hand pick you among all of His creations. To listen to you while you pour your heart out before Him. Even if you don’t speak, He knows. If you don’t know how and where to start, He knows.
"Offer Tahajjud Prayer at night: this is an additional prayer for you. That time is not far when your Lord may exalt you to a laudable position." (Quran, 17:79)
وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِ نَافِلَةً لَكَ عَسَى أَنْ يَبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا
Imagine the love and mercy He has for you, that He gives you this chance of being His guest. To elevate your ranks, to grant you His forgiveness and to grant you the best for which He has kept for only His chosen ones. So try to be with Him. Look for the signs of divine invitation. Leave everything for this sacred conversation. And be His guest of honor.
This is how one of the great scholar and Imam who was also known as Muhaddith, Ibn At’aillah Al Iskandari Rahimahullah explains,
"When He gives, He shows you His kindness; when He deprives, He shows you His power. And in all that, He is making Himself known to you and coming to you with His gentleness."
