Abu Hurrerah (R.A) narrates the Holy Prophet (PBUH) saying regarding the importance of Isha prayer as: “The most difficult salah for the munafiqeen is Isha and Fajr. Had they known the rewards for them they would have attended them even if they had to crawl on their knees.”(Bukhari) As, it generally gets tougher to pray at the times of night and early morning, so it vastly increases the reward for executing Isha and Fajr. The following hadith mentions one such spiritual benefit: ‘Uthman bin Affan (R.A) reported that the Messenger (PBUH) said: “Whoever offers Isha salah in jama’ah (Congregation) it is as though he spent half the night in worship. And whoever offers Fajr salah in jama’ah (Congregation) it is as though he spent the entire night in worship.” (Muslim) So, conclusively, we could say that the Isha prayer is full of rewards, blessings and benefits from Allah Almighty. It is the best way to please Allah Almighty and His Prophet (PBUH). May Allah grant us the desire and will to offer the five prayers daily, Amen
