[Abu Dawud].
This Hadith tells us about the conduct of pious husbands and wives. Its outstanding feature
mentioned here is that they help each other in acts of virtue and obedience of Allah.

Abu Sa`id and Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
said, "
When a man awakens his wife during the night and they both perform two Rak`ah Salat together, they are
recorded among the men and women who celebrate remembrance of Allah
[Abu Dawud].
This Hadith points out the excellence of performing Tahajjud prayers with one's wife. Those who do
so will be recorded as (
the men and the women who remember Allah much, with their hearts and tongues
). For such
people, as the Verse concludes [Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward (
i.e., Jannah
)]. (33:35)

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
When one of you dozes off
while performing Salat, he should lie down till his drowsiness has gone away from him. When one of you performs
Salat while dozing, he may abuse himself instead of seeking pardon (as a result of drowsiness)
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
anyone of you stands up for Salat at night and finds it difficult to recite the Qur'an accurately and he is unaware of
what he is reciting, he should go back to sleep
Since peace of mind and concentration are essential for performing Salat, it should be performed
when one is fresh and free from tiredness and drowsiness. This is the reason Muslims have been prohibited through
these two Ahadith from performing Salat when they are overwhelmed by sleep. In such conditions one cannot make
proper expression of one's humility before Allah, which is the essence of Salat. Therefore, in such conditions one
should first have some sleep because only then one will get real pleasure from the recitation of the Qur'an, prayer
and praise of Allah, and will be in a position to beseech Him earnestly for pardoning one's sins.
