Laylatul Qadr: The Last Ten Nights of Ramadan
Laylatul Qadr: Making Du'a in the last 10 nights of Ramadan
Hadith on Laylatul Qadr
Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) used to observe I`tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan and say, "Seek Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree) in the odd nights out of the last ten nights of Ramadan.'' [Al-Bukhari]
This Hadith states that Laylatul Qadr can occur in any of the five odd nights - 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th and 29th - of the last ten nights of Ramadan. Its exact date has not been revealed for the reason that people keep themselves awake for prayer for a larger number of nights. Had its date been fixed, people would have kept awake for prayer only on that night.
"Whosoever stood up in front of Allah on the night of qadr with Iman and true conviction of attaining reward from Allah, in return, Allah will forgive all his previous sins." [Muslim]
"Whoever establishes the prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards (not to show off) then all his past sins will be forgiven.’’[Al-Bukhari, Vol.1, Bk.2, No. 34]Quran on Laylatul Qadr
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
