Laylatul Qadr. One night. 73 years of worship. Unquantifiable rewards.
What is Laylatul Qadr?
Knowing what Laylatul Qadr is and its signs are important – it’s the most blessed night in the Muslim calendar.
Laylatul Qadr, or the Night of Destiny, is the greatest night of all nights. It is believed to fall on one of the odd nights in the final nights in Ramadan. So that means it could be on the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th night.
What does the Quran say about Laylatul Qadr?
“The Night of Destiny is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.” [Quran 97: 3-5]
It’s the night the Qur’an was revealed. It’s greater than one thousand months of worship.
On Laylatul Qadr, Allah’s forgiveness and mercy can wipe away every sin.
Why donate on laylatul Qadr?
Acts of goodness are rewarded more than any other night throughout the year. As well as charity, all good deeds, like praying, seeking forgiveness and making dua for others are all great things to do.
What did the Prophet (pbuh) say about Laylatul Qadr?
The Prophet is known to take the final 10 nights of Ramadan even more seriously. He would spend less time with his family and offer his nights in prayer.
“Whoever stands (in the voluntary night prayer of) Ramadan out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven. And whoever spends the night of Laylatul al Qadr in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” [Sunan an-Nasa’i]
