Abdullah ibn Amr (Radi Allahu anhu) said: “ Whoever prays four Rakah
after Isha is like praying four Rakah during Lailutil Qadr.[ Musanaf ibn abi
Shaybah 2/342]

Aisha (radi Allahu Anha) said: four Rakah after Isha are like praying four
Rakah during Lailutil Qadr [ Musanaf ibn Abi Shaybah 2/342]

Benefits for this subject:

• There are several narrations from the companions of the Prophet

( sallahu alayhi wa salim) about the virtue of praying thee four
Rakah after Isha prayer. The authentic ones are from: Aisha, Ibn
Masud, Muhjahid, and Abdur Rahman ibnal Aswad. Although they
are narrations from the companions they hold the status of being
attributed to and being heard from the prophet (sallahu alayhi wa
salim); as this is an issue that one could speak about from his
opinion. On the contrary to know about such an issue requires
revelation.[ Silsilah Dha’eefah 5060 Al-Albani]

• The description for these prayers according to Abdullah ibn Masud

(Radi Allahu Anhu) they are prayed in four units without a Tasleem
between them, which would had made them 2 then 2. Although the
night prayers are done in units of 2 then 2, except for witr, here we
an authentic text that gives a description for these prayers, so we
must act according to it. And Allah knows best.

3 . Abdullh (radi Allahu anhu) said : “ Whoever prays four rakat after Isha
without dividing between them with a tasleem, then they are equal to
praying four during Lailutil Qadr.” [ Musanaf ibn Abi Shaybah2/342]
