Laylatul Qadr, The Night of A Thousand Nights

Without realising, 21 days have passed this Ramadhan and we are in our last 10 days of it. In this last 10 days lies a night of Laylatur Qadr....a night of blessings and rewards....a night which is equivalent to a thousand night.....This one night surpasses the value of 30,000 nights.

Abû Hurayra radiyallahu `anhu relates that the Holy Prophet sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam said:
“Whosoever worshipped on Laylatul-Qadr, with faith and with a sincere intention, all of his previous sins are forgiven.” (from al-Bukhârî and Muslim).

From the nights of the blessed month of Ramadan, one is known as Laylatul-Qadr and during it, blessings, rewards and an abundance of good can be gained.
Allah Most high has made worship during this night worth than a thousand months, i.e. anyone who spent this night in worship, would have worshipped an equivalent of eighty three years and four months – khayru(n)m-minalfi shahr.

The night of al-Qadr is better than a thousand months.” The reality is that Allah can increase the rewards gained during this month to as much as He wants and this is an amount which is beyond our imagination.

So may we get this night for us by worshipping...this night falls on the odd night of either 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or the 29th.....and if we happened to meet this night, what prayer shall we say??

`A'ishah (radhiAllâhu `anha) reported that she asked Allâh's Messenger sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, "O Messenger of Allâh! If I knew which night is Laylat ul-Qadr, what should I say during it?" And he instructed her to say: Allahumma innaka 'affuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'anni' which means "O Allâh! You are forgiving, and you love forgiveness. So forgive me." [Recorded by Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmithi]

May Allah be with us always.....
