What is Layla Tul Qadr
(The Night of Power)?
The night of qadr is the most virtuous night of the
year. Allah says in the Qur'an:
"We revealed it on the night of power [that is, qadr].
What will tell you what the night of power is? It is
better than a thousand months."
Any action therein, for example, reciting the Qur'an,
joining the classes at Sunnahfollowers, making
duaa and so on, is better than acting for one thou-
sand months which do not contain this sacred
night.
As Muslims we seek this night during the last ten
nights of Ramadan by tightening up in doing as
many good deeds as we can. The Prophet (sa)
said:
"Whoever prays during the night of qadr with faith
and hoping for its reward will have all of his previ-
ous sins forgiven." (Bukhari)
