The Prophet’s Teachings on Doing Good Deeds Regularly

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Should anyone fall asleep at night and fail to recite his portion of the Qur’an, or a part of it, if he recites it between the Fajr prayer (The Prayer at dawn)  and the Zuhr (The Prayer at noon)  prayer, it will be recorded for him as though he had recited it during the night”.
[Muslim].

Commentary:- Fixing a number of Nawafil (voluntary prayers),  or recital of a certain portion of the Noble Qur’an or performance of some other noble deed as one’s daily routine is recommended. This Hadith stresses that one should try adhere to such a routine. It also tells that if for some reason one is unable to do it at the time fixed by him, he can do it later at the time closest to the one he has fixed for it. If one does so, he will be eligible to its full reward.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to me, “O Abdullah! Do not be like so-and-so. He used to get up at night for optional prayer but abandoned it later.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

When Messenger of Allah (PBUH) missed the optional night Salat (prayer) due to pain or any other reason, he would perform twelve Rak`ah during the day time.
[Muslim].
