Laylat Al Qadr - The Night of Power

Laylat Al Qadr

Did You know?

During the last 10 days of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate the Laylat Al Qadr, the holiest night of the year and “The Night of Power”. It commemorates the night that the Quran, the Muslim Holy Book, was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

Laylat Al Qadr is otherwise known as the Night of Power and is considered to be the Islamic calendar’s Holiest eve. During this night, Angel Jibril revealed the Holy Qur’an’s first verses to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This night falls within Ramadan’s final 10 days, and although the exact date is unidentified, it is commonly thought of as the Holy month’s 27th day.

Laylat Al Qadr Rewards

When you complete good deeds on Laylat al-Qadr, your fasting is increased in reward. On this night, a single act of kindness gives the blessings of 1,000 months. Carrying out these deeds on the Holiest night and dedicating your day to worship will extend your taqwa. Be sure to recite the Holy Qur’an and engage with its teachings by assisting those most in need, thus fulfilling one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Performing a charitable deed on Laylat-al-Qadr promises many future rewards.

“We have indeed revealed this in the ‘Night of Power’. And what will explain to you what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down The Angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand. “Peace!…This until the rise of Morn!” – Surah Al-Qadr

How is the Night of Power Observed and Celebrated?

Laylat Al Qadr calls for much reflection and prayer. Whilst fulfilling good deeds and asking for forgiveness, Allah (SWT) is thought to see and answer your prayers during this night.

Ramadan influences us to reflect, and it is this night where the significance is increased. Reciting the Holy Qur’an is the best way to appreciate everything that Allah (SWT) does – devoting the whole day to your faith.

You should also be encouraged to study the Holy Qur’an on the Night of Power. Understanding its meaning brings a whole new level to simply reciting its teachings. This deeper understanding can provide you with the blessings of 1,000 months. 

In addition to praying for our loved ones, we pray for those in less fortunate positions and do all that we can help, in the name of our religious duties.
