Laylat al Qadr and its merits

It is also called “Night of power”, what is the relation between these 2 synonyms (Laylat al Qadr and night of power)? Here we will find out all what we have to know about Laylat al Qadr, and what should be done this night.

What is Laylat al Qadr?

This is one of the nights that is investigated in odd nights of the last third of Ramadan. Laylat al Qadr marks the night which the Quran was first revealed on our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). All words can’t describe the importance of this night, but we will try to give it it’s right. Owing to the greatness of Laylat al Qadr, Allah has named one of the 114 Surah with “Al Qadr”, and it indicates the greatness of this night. Allah said in this Surah: ِ{إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ . وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ . لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ . تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْرٍ . سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّى مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ} Allah Almighty says in this Surah, he has revealed the Quran in laylat al Qadr which is better than one thousand Months. He also says that the angels of him descend to the earth on the same night every year.

What are the desirable deeds in Laylat al Qadr?

This Golden chance will not be repeated again in the same year, so every Muslim has to take this golden opportunity to get more and more rewards.

Some of these good deeds that is desirable in Ramadan are:

1.Reciting the Quran: Quran recitation is not limited to specific times but there are times when good deeds should be done more than other times. Reciting one verse in Laylat al Qadr equals its recitation for a thousand Months and better. And as we know, Allah rewards for reciting the Quran by multiplying each letter by ten, as he says “Don’t consider Alif Laam Meem is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” 2.Pray more: Every Muslim has to pray more to be considered a prayer for 1000 Months and get this great reward. Because we aren’t aware of the specific night of Laylat al Qadr, we intensify our worship in the odd nights of the last third of Ramadan. Most men used to I’tikaf in the Mosque to pray and recite the Quran.


Laylat al Qadr is the best time to ask forgiveness of Allah. The best supplication at this night is “Allahumma innaka afuwwun karim tuhibbul afwa fa’fu anni” This Duaa means that you ask for Allah’s forgiveness after glorifying and praising him. Everyone needs this supplication, and our only goal of this life is Allah’s forgiveness and satisfaction. 4.Pay the poor: Paying the poor at this night will maximize your reward. It is important to say that not only the previous good deeds that can be done, but there are many other good deeds, and each one of them will be maximized if done on Laylat al Qadr.
