Night of Power

There is night in the month of
Ramadhan which is better than a
thousand months (83 years, 4
months). This night is called
Laitatul Qadr. According to Hadith, this night occurs during the last ten days of Ramadhan on one of the odd numbered nights. Usually it is celebrated on the 27th night of this holy month. It is a night of great importance and enormous blessings for Muslims.

A night such as Lailatul Qadr was
not granted to any religious
community (Ummah) before
Muslims. Only the Ummah of the
Prophet Muhammad (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him)
were favoured with a night of huge reward. Once reason, it  was
granted, was to enable Muslims to equal the worship of any people who lived before us. In the distant past it is said that people lived very long lives of hundreds of years. We, today, live much shorter lives. And so Allah gave us Laitatul Qadr to enable us to do as much worship as a man who lived even hundreds of years longer. If in a
lifetime, you only worshipped on
Lailatul Qadr ten times, you would have equaled in those ten nights 833 years of worship.

Signs of Laitul Qadr

There are some signs that reveal
which night is Laitatul Qadr.
The night will be peaceful, neither hot nor cold, with a clear moon shinning but with no rays.
There will be no shooting stars in
the night, At sunrise the sun will rise as just a disc without and radiant beams of light.
One companion of the Prophet
reported that on Laitatul Qadr he
tasted sea water and it was sweet.
