What is Laylatul Qadr
Laylatul Qadr, or the Night of Power, is the holiest night in the Islamic calendar. It commemorates when the first verses of the Holy Quran were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), by the Angel Jibril.
Laylatul Qadr falls in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, but the exact night is not known. It is often thought to be on the 27th night of Ramadan. This night is also known as the Night of Power due to the increased reward and blessings for worship.
When is Laylatul Qadr
The exact date of Laylatul Qadr is unknown, but it is known to fall in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Many believe Laylatul Qadr is on the 27th night of Ramadan. In 2023, this would be the night of April 17th.
However, scholars of Hadith recommend focusing on the last 10 nights of Ramadan, especially the odd nights, as it is most likely to have occurred in one of these nights based on Hadith. It was advised by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to,
“Look for it in the odd nights of the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan.”
Why is Laylatul Qadr important
“Laylatul Qadr is better than a thousand months.”
Laylatul Qadr is important to Muslims due to it’s commemoration of the revelation of the Holy Quran, and it’s increased reward. On this night, the Qur’an was first revealed to the beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the angel Jibreel (Gabriel).
Performing acts of worship such as Nafl (voluntary) prayers, Sadaqah and Dua can earn you bountiful rewards, but when performed on The Night of Power, with sincere intention and faith in Allah’s (SWT) acceptance, the rewards could be exceptional. Giving Zakat or Sadaqah during Ramadan is multiplied by 70 times, and the reward for any righteous act is equivalent to having performed that same deed every day for 83 years, SubhanAllah!
