Indeed, We sent the Qur'an down during the Night of Decree. / And what can make you know what is the “Night of Decree?” / The “Night of Decree” is better than a thousand months./ The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. / Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.
These verses sufficiently and effectively enough, explain the importance of the Laylat-al-Qadr, or the “Night of Power”. It is believed that it can occur on any of the last ten nights, oddly numbered in the month of Ramadan. Thus, take the time to hit the jackpot with tons and tons of reward, during these last ten nights of Ramadan. Pray and worship Allah SWT as if it was your last time, and stay up until the wee hours of the morning.
For, Allah has told us that this is the most powerful night, and all of our duas and prayers will be accepted. If not in this life, then the next.
Allahumma innaka a’ffuwan tuhib-bul afwa, fa’fu a’nna.
O Allah indeed you are a Pardoner, and you love pardon; so pardon me.
Remember the “Night of Power” is better than a thousand nights. Even for a devout Muslim, missing this night is like rejecting a million dollar gift.
As it was narrated in a hadith:
Jibreel said to me, ‘May Allah rub his nose in the dust, that person to who Ramadaan comes and his sins are not forgiven,’ and I said, “Ameen.”
Let’s not be among those that get rubbed in the dust. Make dua, and inshAllah we will all catch the night of Power. And if you do: remember the entire Muslim Ummah in your prayers.
