The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down,
a guidance for the people, and clear verses of guidance and criterion.
[Quran: Chapter 2:183]

Laylatul-al-Qadr Dua By Sa'ad Al Ghamdi (The Night of Power)

The Night of Power or Destiny is an extremely important night for Muslims. It is the night in which the Holy Quran, was revealed from Allah (S.W.T.)to Prophet Muhammad (P.B.B.U.H.). It is a night worth more than 1000 days (which is more than the average lifetime of a human from his birth date to his death date).

The Quran was revealed during the month of Ramadan (2:185). Traditionally, Muslims celebrated the Night of Power on the 27th night of Ramadan, but there is a debate on which day of Ramadan is Laylatul-al-Qadr (The Night of Power).

Muslims with strong Iman pray every night of Ramadan as if it is a Laylatul-al-Qadr, others increase their prayers as Ramadan progress, and yet others observe each and every single night in the last 10 days of Ramadan. As explained in a previous article, muslims also retreat to the mosque for seclusion (I'tikaf) and pray day and night during the last 10 days.

When exactly is this glorious night? We don't really know, and the early Muslims asked the same question. The Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged them to do I’tikaf (seclusion in the mosque away from all worldly thoughts, deeds and concerns) in the last ten days. So the last ten days of Ramadan are very important.

Please pray for us and for all muslims, and may Allah (Subhanahu Wa Taaala) accept your prayers (Dua)on this great night.

Special Ramadan Series

Dear Reader, Assalaamu’alaikum.

Ramadan Mubarak. We wish you a blessed and productive Ramadan! Make no mistake about it - keeping the fast and increasing our acts of worship during this blessed month is not an easy task. The physical demands of balancing work or school with fasting all day, feeling fatigued and less effective than you normally are, waking up for Suhoor, praying Teraweeh and Tahajjud prayers, dealing with sleep deficits.

But the last thing we would want is to let Ramadan pass us by without doing all that we aim and desire to. Do not allow yourself to feel guilty or regretful when Ramadan passes.

The Ramadan Series will send you emails with practical tips on how to gain and maintain the physical and spiritual energy necessary to embark on increased religious oligations so that you will reap the benefits from this blessed month. This includes special Ramadan duas to say during the month. Do sign-up today!
