Importance of Laylatul Qadr

Ramadan is the most blessed month of the Islamic calendar. The doors of blessings are opened in this month, and all the good deeds done during this month are highly rewarded. The devil is locked during this month inorder for the people to do good deeds and earn rewards.

The month of Ramadan is broken down into 3 parts or segments. The first part is the first ten days and this part is known as the part of Mercy. People make dua for mercy during this part. The second part consists of the middle days from 11 to 20 Ramadan, and this part is known as the part of forgiveness. People pray to Allah and ask for forgiveness. The final part consists of the last 10 days of Ramadan and is known as the part of safety; particularly from hell fire. It is in this part that Laylatul Qadr falls in. The exact date of Laylatul Qadr is unknown, but it falls on either the night of 23rd, 25th, or 27th Ramadan. Muslims worlwide believe the night of 27th Ramadan to be Laylatul Qadr and worship the whole night asking for forgiveness.

What is Laylatul Qadr and what is its importance? Laylatul Qadr is the most powerful night of the year, a night which is better than a thousand months. Only one night is superior than Laylatul Qadr, and that is 12th Rabi Ul Awwal, the day Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was born.

On Laylatul Qadr, angels descend from the heavens to earth. It is the night when Angel Gibreel revealed the Holy Quran to Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him); thus its importance. Special doors of mercy are opened on this night, and all prayers carry a high reward. It is beneficial to pray nafil prayers on this night. People stay awake all night, praying nafil, reading Quran, and asking for forgiveness. It is recommended to do ibadat all night long as the doors of mercy are open and Allah will forgive whom He wants to.

There is no guarantee how long a person will live. Few years ago, we could have said if we stay healthy we will live for 80+ or 100+ years. But with new viruses emerging regularly, setting the tone for unpredictable future, there is no guarantee if we will live another day. So we should make the most of this opportunity and pray to Allah as much as we can and reap the benefits while we can. Once we leave this world, we will get no opportunity to ask for forgiveness. So, make the most of it!
