Q. What is the right way to perform tahajud salaah?
A. Tahajud Salaah should be performed in two’s during the period of the last third of the night. A person can perform 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 rakaats as he wishes.
In every rakaat, one will recite Sura Al Fatiha and another Sura. There is no specific Sura to be recited in Tahajud Salaah, and there is no established manner of reciting Sura Ikhlas for a certain amount of time in any given rakaat.
And Allah knows best.
