What is Lailatul Qadr? and what is its significance?
Here we are about to know Lailatul Qadr, its significance, and all about it.
To know the importance of this night (The night of
Decree) we have to read the words of Allah about it:
ِبِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ (1) وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ (2) لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ (3) تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْرٍ (4) سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّى مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ (5)
Nothing can describe the importance of Lailatul Qadr (The Night of Decree) more than naming one Surah of the Holy Quran with AlQadr.
In this Surah Allah describes the importance of Lailatul Qadr (The Night of Decree) by saying that he has revealed his Holy
book on his messenger Muhammad (SAW) in this night. Allah also confirms the importance of Lailatul Qadr (the Night of Decree) by saying that this night is better than one thousand months when angels descend to the Earth with the permission
of their Lord.
Why Lailatul Qadr is better?:
● As we said before that this night is better than one
thousand months which means doing one good deed in this night is equivalent to doing it for one thousand months or 83 years.
● It is the night of Barakah as said by Allah in his Holy book:
(إِنَّا أَنـزلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةٍ مُبَارَكَةٍ)
● It is the night of forgiveness:
In this night Allah forgives his servants who plead with him, as said by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) when he said:
“Man qama Lailatul Qadr Imanan wahtisaban ghufira lahu
mataqoddama men dhanbeh.”
The translation of this Hadith is whoever worships Allah in lailatul Qadr believing in him, Allah will forgive him for his previous sins.
When is the night of Decree?
This night happens in the last 10 days of Ramadan, especially in odd nights, and some Ahadith recommend this night in these nights 25, 27, 29.
What are good deeds Muslims have to do in Lailatul Qadr?
After knowing the importance of this night (The night of Decree), one has to know good deeds to be done in this night. All Muslims are racing and accelerating in this night to get the
reward from Allah and get his satisfaction.
We will mention some of these good deeds to do:
Praying Qiyam is the most common worship in Ramadan
especially in Lailatul Qadr.
2. Dua’ and supplication:
Our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) has taught his wife Aisha (mayAllah be pleased with her) Dua’ to recite it in the night of Decree. This Dua’ is “Allahumma innaka afuwwun tuhibbu Al Afu fa’fu anni.”
3. Reciting the Quran:
Reciting the Holy Quran in normal days has a great reward from Allah, and Allah multiplies the reward of each letter by 10. This is in normal days what do you think about the reward in
Ramadan especially this night ?!
It is one of the greatest good deeds in Islam, charity never reduces one’s wealth.
Charity in this night has a great reward.
