Night Of Qadr (Night Of Power)


We have sent it (the Qur’an) down in the Night of Qadr

And what may let you know what the Night of Qadr is?

The Night of Qadr is much better than one thousand months

The angels and the Spirit descend in it, with the leave of your Lord, along with every command.

Peace it is till the debut of dawn.(Qur’an 97:1-5)

** Fasting (Ramadhan)

Abdullah bin Mas'ud (RA) used to tell his pupils that only that blessed person will have the Night of Power who performs late night prayer during the whole year. His objective of this was that they would perform late night prayer the whole year to seek and achieve the Night of Power.

Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA) The Prophet said, "Whoever observed Saum (fast) in the month of Ramadan with sincere faith (i.e., belief) and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his past sins will be forgiven, and whoever stood for the salat (prayers) in the night of Qadr with sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his past sins will be forgiven."(Sahih Bukhari: 2014)

Narrated Ibn 'Umar (RA) Some men amongst the companions of the Prophet (pbuh) were shown in their dreams that the night of Qadr was in the last seven nights of Ramadan. Allah's Messenger said, "It seems that all your dreams agree that (the night of Qadr) is in the last seven nights, and whoever wants to search for it (i.e., the night of Qadr) should search in the last seven (nights of Ramadan) ."(Sahih Bukhari: 2015)

Narrated 'Aishah (RA) I Allah's Messenger said, "Search for the night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan." (Sahih Bukhari: 2017)

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas (RA) The Prophet said, "Look for the night of Qadr in the last ten nights of Ramadan; on the night when nine or seven or five nights remain out of the last ten nights of Ramadan [i.e., 21, 23, 25, (27, 29) respectively] ." (Sahih Bukhari: 2021)

It was narrated from Sâlim that his father [may Allah be pleased with them] said: "A man saw (in a dream) that Lailat Al-Qadr was the night of the twenty-seventh. The Prophet said: 'I see that your dreams indicate the last ten (nights), so seek it in the odd numbered ones thereof." (Sahih Muslim: 2763)

It was narrated that Abu Sa'eed Al- Khudr (RA) said: "The Messenger of Allah used to observe I'tikaf during the middle ten days of the month. Then when twenty nights had passed, and the twenty-first came, he would go back to his home, and those who had been observing I'tikaf with him also went back home. Then one month he observed I'tikaf on that night when he used to go home. Then he addressed the people and exhorted them as Allah willed, then he said: 'I used to observe I'tikaf during these ten days, then I decided to observe I'tikaf during these last ten days, so whoever was observing I'tikaf with me, let him stay in his place of I'tikaf, for I was shown this night, then I was caused to forget it, so seek it in the last ten nights, on every odd-numbered night, for I saw myself prostrating in water and mud." Abu Sa'eed Al-KhudrI said: "It rained on the night of the twenty first, and the Masjid leaked at the place where the Messenger of Allah prayed. I looked at him when he had finished praying Subh and his face was wet with mud and water." (Sahih Muslim: 2769)

Zirr said:"I said to Ubayy bin Ka'b (RA) O Abu Al-Mundhir! How do you know that it is the night of the twenty-seventh?' He said: 'Rather, the Messenger of Allah informed us that it is a night (after which) the sun rises without rays, so we counted and we remembered it. By Allah! Ibn Mas'ud learned that it is in Ramadan and that it is the night of the twenty-seventh, but he did not want to inform you lest you would depend on it."(Tirmidhi: 793)

Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported: “I asked: O Messenger of Allah! If I realize Laylat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree), what should I supplicate in it?’ He (peace be upon him) replied, ‘You should supplicate: Allahumma innaka afuwwun, tuhibbul-'afwa, fa'fu 'anni (O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me).’"(Tirmidhi)
