As the Muslim world prepares to embrace the holy month of Ramadan, we cannot help but feel excitement for one of the most blessed nights of the year: Laylatul Qadr: The Night of Power!

Laylatul Qadr in the Quran

“The Night of Power and its immense blessings are mentioned in the Holy Qur’an.

“Indeed, it is We Who sent this Quran down on the Night of Power.

And what will make you realize what the Night of Power is?

The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.

That night, the angels and the holy spirit descend, by the permission of their Lord, for every decreed matter.

It is all peace until the break of dawn.”

Quran: Surah Al-Qadr (97: 1-5)

What is Layaltul Qadr?

Laylatul Qadr, also known as the Night of Power, Decree, or Destiny, holds immense significance in Islam. On this night, believed to be when Allah (SWT) revealed the Holy Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), any good deed performed is rewarded as if it was carried out for a thousand months (approximately 83 years). This makes Laylat-ul-Qadr a pivotal moment for Muslims to seek blessings and maximize their good deeds.

Regarded as the night when our destiny for the upcoming year is written, Laylat-ul-Qadr offers a unique opportunity for spiritual growth and reflection. It’s a time when the teachings and sayings of the Prophet, known as Hadith, gain profound importance, providing guidance and insight.

It is a night of bountiful rewards, in which the angels descend. It is a precious night in which we are welcomed to attain Allah’s rewards and free ourselves of previous sins.

When is Laylatul Qadr?

Observed during the last ten nights of Ramadan, with many believing it falls on the 27th night, Laylatul Qadr is a period when Muslims intensify their devotion, steering clear of sinful acts while observing the obligatory fasts of Ramadan, one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

However, the exact night has been kept hidden so that we would instead seek it out by engaging in worship throughout all the potential nights.

The scholars teach us that the Night of Power is most likely to fall on one of the odd nights during the last ten days of Ramadan. For this reason, we should ensure we increase our worship and devotion on all the odd nights during the last ten nights of Ramadan, hoping to receive the blessings of the Night of Power.

What to do on Laylatul Qadr

To make the most of this sacred night, there are several practices one can engage in:

Reciting the Holy Qur’an

Rather than merely reciting, take time to understand its meanings. Reflect on the verses, especially since this night marks the revelation of the first verses of the Qur’an.

Supplications (Dua)

This is a powerful night for making Dua. While you may ask for your legitimate desires, remember to pray for others and seek forgiveness for your sins. Turn towards Allah in prayer on this blessed night of decree and ask for blessings, mercy, an increase in faith, and blessings for the following year.

Donating to Charity

Charity, or Sadaqah, is highly valued, especially during Ramadan. On Laylatul Qadr, the act of giving—be it your time, money, or a simple gesture like offering water or a smile—is incredibly rewarding.

For this Ramadan, consider channeling your charitable acts through MWC. Your contributions can make a significant difference in the lives of those in need. This Laylatul Qadr, let your generosity shine and partake in the blessings of this holy night.
