“Muadh stood up and prayed Isha’, and made it lengthy. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: ‘Do you want to cause hardship to the people, O Mu’adh; do you want to cause hardship to the people O Mu’adh? Why didn’t you recite ‘Glorify the Name of your Lord Most High’ or Ad-Duha or; ‘When the heaven is cleft asunder?”

A soul will [then] know what it has put forth and kept back. (82:5)

That the Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) is reported to have said: “If anyone establishes a good tradition in Islam, he will have a reward for it and the equivalent of the rewards of those who act upon it after him, without theirs being diminished in any respect; but he who establishes a bad custom in Islam will bear the responsibility of it and the responsibility of those who act upon it after him, without theirs being diminished in any respect.

(Tafsir Ma’ariful Qur’an)
