Are there any hadiths about praying the tahajjud prayer in congregation?

The Details of the Question
As Salamu Alaikum. In Macca and other countries like Ivory Coast, Tahajjud Prayer is performed in congregation by calling azan. Is there any sound hadith in respect to this activity? Zazakallahu Khair. Rezaul Huq
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

We do not know a hadith about this practice. However, according to the Shafii sect, supererogatory prayers may be performed in congregation. This has been permitted. There may be some scholars allowing this practice in other sects. They might have included Tahajjud prayer in this permission depending on the fact that some supererogatory prayers are being performed in congregation. Performing other supererogatory prayers in congregation is highly disapproved. There may be slight differences among the sects.
