Hadith Qudsi 35

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth’s sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: ‘Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?'”

[Bukhari (also by Muslim, Malik, at-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud).]

In a version by Muslim the Hadith ends with the words:

“And thus He continues till [the light of] dawn shines.”
