A NIGHT WORTH MORE THAN 1000 MONTHS; LAYLATUL QADR.
ABDULRASHEED MUBARAK

Share this with friends

Laylatul Qadr ( Night Of Power/Majesty ).

The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.

On that night every matter of significance was made plain and distinct; new values and standards were established; the fortunes of nations were determined; and values and standards were sorted out.

The Prophet has taught us an easy and enjoyable way to commemorate it, so that our souls may always be in close communion with it and with the universal event which it witnessed.

He has urged us to spend this night of each year in devotion.

He said: “Seek the Night of Power in the last ten nights of Ramadhan.” [Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.] He also said: “Whoever spends the Night of Power in worship, with a pure motive of faith and devotion, will have all his past sins forgiven.” [Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.]

Islam is not mere formalities. Hence, the Prophet specifies that the consecration of that night must be motivated by faith and devotion. This would make its consecration by any individual an indication of his or her full awareness of the farreaching effects of what took place on that night.

In an Hadith,

Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: I asked the Messenger of Allah: 
'O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr (Power), what should I say during it?' 

He (The Prophet PBUH) said:

Allahumma innaka `afuwwun tuhibbul `afwa fa`fu `annee    

 اللْهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي 

'Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.' 

"(Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).

Exhaust your last days of Ramadhan.

Wake up for tahajjud prayer and persistently recite the aforementioned beautiful Dua.

May Allah Accept our ibadah as an act of worship, Pardon us and grant us goodness in this world and the hereafter.
