Laylatul Qadr - The night of Power

Give in the last ten nights of Ramadan

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 2024?

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 2024, this would be the night of April 5th. 

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.
(Quran 93:7)

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!

What to do on Laylatul Qadr?

Muslims are encouraged to worship intently throughout Ramadan in order to catch the blessings of the Night of Power. On this night, the reward for worship is better than 1,000 months! Therefore, we can earn phenomenal reward and acceptance of our repentance through sincere worship and reflection.

Here are five key acts of worship on Laylatul Qadr: 

Salah and voluntary Salah

It’s very important to ensure that we pray all of our compulsory prayers in their correct times, and plan our other duties around them. 

As Salah is one of the five pillars of Islam, this should be a priority for us - and Laylatul Qadr is a great time to reflect on our relationship to Salah, and how we can improve. It’s also extremely rewarding to pray voluntary (nafl) prayers on Laylatul Qadr. 

Making Dua

On this blessed night, turn to Allah (SWT) with sincerity, and make Dua from your heart. As well as making Dua for yourself, make sure to make Dua for your loved ones, those who are oppressed, mankind, and all of Allah (SWT)’s creation. 

It’s especially important to make Dua for our Muslim brothers and sisters across that world who are experiencing difficulty, so that Allah (SWT) grants them ease, patience and fulfils their needs. 

Tawbah (repentance) for major and minor sins

Laylatul Qadr is a great time to reflect on our sins and errors, turn to Allah (SWT) for forgiveness, while making the intention to improve our conduct and refrain from returning to our sins. 

Aa’isha (ra) said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know which night is Laylat al-Qadr, what should I say on that night?’ He said, ‘Say: Allaahummainnaka ‘afuwwuntuhibb al-‘afwafa’affu ‘anni (O Allah, You are forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me).” [Tirmidhi]

Acts of Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah

One of the most virtuous acts of reward on Laylatul Qadr is to give Sadaqah to those in need of our help. Don’t miss out on Laylatul Qadr by scheduling your Sadaqah or Sadaqah Jariyah through Islamic Relief Canada’s automated scheduling system, Ajr Automated!

Upright conduct and character towards others

Having good character and manners is integral to our faith. It’s extremely important to deal with others in the correct manner, strive for increased good qualities such as generosity, kindness and humility, as well as working to combat negative qualities such as greed, jealousy and hatred.
