Last time, we at Sutera talked about the events of Nuzul Al-Quran, one of the most celebrated events happened during the Holy month of Ramadhan. Another night that is highly anticipated by muslims around the globe is the Laylatul Qadr.
Laylatul Qadr is a special night that happens once a year and only during Ramadhan. Also known as the ‘Night of Power’ and it is the night that the Quran was revealed (Nuzul Al-Quran). The night happens on the last 10 days of Ramadhan and falls on the odd days – 21,23,27,29 of Ramadhan. Every year, it will land on a different night.
There are many reasons why the Laylatul Qadr falls randomly on the last ten 10 days of Ramadhan; one being so that muslims can strive to seek the night rather than just limiting themselves to do their ibadah on certain days.
During this night, any good deeds done is granted equal to a thousand nights.
“We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the night of Qadr:
And what will explain to thee what the night of Qadr is?
The night of Qadr is better than a thousand months.
Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by God’s permission, on every errand:
Peace! This until the rise of dawn!” [97:1-5]
There are signs of the night of power that can be experienced by many, among them are;
- Laylatul Qadr is a tranquil and peaceful night
- People experience a pleasant breeze
- Rainfall will happen on the night
- The morning of Laylatul, the sun rises without any visible rays.
If we can see this signs, be hopeful that we have coincide with the night on the blessed month of Ramadhan.
All muslims should thrive to do as many good deeds during the last 10 days of Ramadhan.
During the recent khutbah (Sermons) Jumaat on 1st June 2018 in Brunei, The imams highlighted, “Due to the immense rewards of the Laylatul Qadr, we should take this opportunity to increase of the acts of worship in the last 10 days of Ramadhan and take advantage of this month by seeking forgiveness for the sins we committed.”
