How many Rak'at were performed by the Prophet ﷺ during his Night Prayer or Tahajjud prayer? 'Aishah رضى الله عنها narrated the answer to this question clearly ( as related in Sahih al- Bukhari and Sahih Muslim) saying that it was eight Rak'at excluding the Witr prayer, or eleven Rak'at along with the Witr prayer. She said: ما كان النَّبيُّ ﷺ يَزيد في رمضان و لا في غيره على إحدى عشرة رَكعة. " Allah's Messenger ﷺ never offered more than eleven Rak'at, in Ramadan, or in other months."
"Alla-humma inni a'udhu bika minal-jubni wal- bukhl, wa a'udhu bika min an uradda ila ardhalil-'umur,wa a'udhu bika min fitnatid-dunya, wa a'udhu bika min fitnatil-qabr (O Allah, I seek refuge with You from cowardice, miserliness and from being sent back to a feeble age; and, seek refuge with You from thetrials of this life and those of the grave)."
