RAMADAN GIST – DAY 21: Laylatul -Qadar (The night of power)

“The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).”

Ramadan is almost finished, but the best and the essence of it, is yet to come. We are in the most blessed nights of the month.

“Verily! We have sent it (this Qur’an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)” the night of power, the night in which the Quran was revealed, and the night which is better than 1000 months. It is the time of the month in which the mosques become houses for many – doing “I’tikaf” whilst searching mainly for the Laylatul Qadar.

“And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is?”

Every deed you do will be equivalent as you doing that particular deed every second of 83 years.
On this powerful night whoever miss it had missed a lifetime opportunity, it is not granted for you to witness the next Laylatul Qadar, so we have to make an extra effort on this night as the prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) used to put effort on this blessed night.

The night of Qadar is the night in which the angels script down the destinies of the coming year under the command of Allah, do lots of pleas and make loads of requests because this is just too good to be lost, get your list refreshed and don’t be of those who ask Allah to bless them with worldly blessings and they forget to ask blessings in the next life, ask Allah to bless you and have mercy on you in both of worlds, make dua for friends and foes for there is greater blessing in breaking through your ego and seeing the good in them.

Angels come down into the earth, anticipating meeting with the slaves of Allah who are engaged in the worship of Allah, they are greeting them with (salam), peace. We have to also all double our efforts on this ten days looking for this night, and to make du’as that we will be recorded in the book of our destiny in the upcoming year.

That is for part one of LaylatulQadr and, in sha Allah we will cover the night of power in detail in our next article, God willing.

Wa salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah
