Masha'allah that's wonderful to know that you started practising :)

Ihtisaab ( you wrote it Ahtasaab) means to : Reflect, Consider

Seerah : History of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

Shamaa'il : Good Qualities, Good Characteristics

Tafseer : Explanation of the Qur'aan

As for the Difference between Qiyaam and Tahajjud. Well Qiyaam is generally a name which means Any type of Night Prayer. Tahajjud also means the same thing.

Hadith Qudsi 35:


On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said:

Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?


It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim, Malik, at-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud).


In a version by Muslim the Hadith ends with the words:
And thus He continues till [the light of] dawn shines.

I also came across this:

Question:

I wanted to know the difference between QIYYAM and TARAWIH.

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Salaat al-Taraaweeh is classified as part of qiyaam al-layl; they are not two different prayers, as many people think. Qiyaam al-layl during Ramadaan is called Taraaweeh because the salaf or early generations of Islam (may Allaah have mercy on them) used to rest (istaraahu) after every two or four rak’ahs, because they made their prayers long in order to make the most of this season of great reward. They were eager to earn the reward mentioned in the hadeeth: “Whoever stays up and prays at night in Ramadaan out of faith and in the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, no. 36).

And Allaah knows best.
