Lailat Ul Qadr - Night of Power

LAILAT UL QADR-NIGHT OF POWER --- COMING SOON --- AVAIL IT

Assalaam Alaykum,

The opportunity of Laylatul Qadr is coming in the next few days. Life is about that take advantage of their opportunities to win the nearness & love of Allah, and this is indeed one of those chances. The sincere believer who worries day and night about his sins and phases of neglect in his life patiently awaits the onset of Ramadan. During it he hopes to be forgiven by Allah for past sins, knowing that the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi wa sallam promised that all who bear down during the last ten days shall have all their sins forgiven. It is well known that Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi wa Salama advised Muslims to search “Lailatuhul Qadr” in the odd numbered nights, in the last ten days of Ramadan.To achieve this, the believer remembers the Prophet’s Sallallahu Alayhi wa sallam advice in different sayings wherein he used words like “seek”, “pursue”, “search” and “look hard” for Laylatul Qadr. In this night of power, the Holy Quran was sent down from LOH-E-MEHFOOZ (the Preserved Tablet) to the earth.

Laylatul Qadr is the most blessed night. A person who misses it has indeed missed a great amount of good. The Mu’min should search for it in the last ten nights of Ramadan, passing the nights in worship and obedience.

For those who catch the opportunity, their gift is that of past sins wiped away.

The Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi wa sallam illustrated for us some of the things we should be doing on this Grand Night. From his blessed Sunnah we find the following:

It is recommended to make a long qiyaam prayer during the nights on which Laylatul Qadr could fall. This is indicated in many ahadeeth, such as:

“Whoever stands (in qiyaam) in Laylatul Qadr [and it is facilitated for him] out of faith and expectation (of Allah’s reward), will have all of his previous sins forgiven.” Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

Peace shall descend on Laylatul Qadr until the dawn.

Hazrat Aisha Radiallah Anha stated that Rasool Allah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Salma said, 'Look for Lailat-Ul-Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadhan.' (Bukhari)

Hazrat Aisha Radiallah Anha stated that as much Rasool Allah peace be upon him tried (Ibadat) in the last Ashra (ten days) of Ramadan, did not try in any of the Ashra.' (Muslim)

Hazrat Aisha Radiallah Anha stated that I asked Rasool Allah peace be upon him, 'If I find Lailatul Qadar then what should I do? HE peace be upon him said, recite this Dua.'ALLAH HUMMA INNAKA A’FUVUN TOHIB BUL AFVA FA’AFU ANNI' (Tirmidhi)

Please take advantage of this night, from sunset till sunrise. Offer nawafil (prayers), recite QUR'AAN, do repent (Istaghfar), and Pray for pardon, recite many many Salawat (Darood Sharif & Salaam) and make benediction (Dua'as).

SECRET TREASURE’S CALCULATIONS:

Arif-Billah Hadrat Khwaja Abul Hasan Kharkani (rahmatullah alahay) mentioned that he did not missed the Night of Power (Lail-a-tul Qadr) since his adolescence age based on the instruction/ quotations of Hadrat Imam Jafar Sadiq (rahmatullahi alaihi). According to him, the night of Power will be on the following:

· If first day of Ramadan starts on Monday, the night of Power

will be on 21st Ramadan.

· If first day of Ramadan starts on Saturday, the night of Power

will be on 23rd Ramadan.

· If first day of Ramadan starts on Thursday, the night of Power

will be on 25th Ramadan.

· If first day of Ramadan starts on Tuesday or Friday, the night

of Power will be 27th Ramadan.

· If first day of Ramadan starts on Wednesday or Sunday, the

night of Power will be on 29th Ramadan.

Moulana Abdul Hai Farangi Mahli (rahmatullah alahay) has also mentioned in his book that he has implemented the above mentioned dates and found them blessed with the Night of power.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

According to above calculations, 27th Night of Ramadhan-Ul-Mubarak should be night of Lailat-Ul-Qadr in India and Chicago and 21st Night should be night of Lailatur Qadr in Saudi Arabia.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This one night surpasses the value of 30,000 nights. If the Night of Power is for 12 hours, then each minute is equivalent to 42 days. The least action one can perform on the Night of Power is to pray Isha and Fajr in congregation. According to the Sunnah, the supplication to recite during the Night of Power is:

Special DU’AA of Lailatul QADR:

'ALLAH HUMMA INNAKA A’FUVUN TOHIB BUL AFVA FA’AFU ANNI' (Tirmidhi)

'O Allah! You are the Forgiver and You like forgiving so forgive me”

Alllah knows the just and best --- May Allah bless us the night of power – A’ameen.

excellent write. the calculations, however, are a tad too confusing. They are too difficult to be applied.
