gagasanonline.com – Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. As we know in Ramadan there is a special night that is called Lailatul Qadr. Lailatul Qadr/night of Qadr is a night that full of blessing. Lailatul Qadr occurs at the odd night in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Lailatul Qadr/night of Qadr is the night of resolution that is happened only on Ramadan
Described in Quran Surah Al-Qadr verse 3 as a night that better than thousand months:
لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ
“The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
It said that Quran firstly came on Ramadan (Al-Baqarah verse 185) in the night of Qadr (Al-Qadr verse 1)
What is so special at Lailatul Qadr/night of Qadr? There are so many angels descends that time (A- Qadr verse 4).
تَنَزَّلُ الۡمَلٰٓٮِٕكَةُ وَالرُّوۡحُ فِيۡهَا بِاِذۡنِ رَبِّهِمۡۚ مِّنۡ كُلِّ اَمۡرٍ
“Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah permission, on every errand:”
So, at the night of Qadr, it is the best time to pray more, ask forgiveness to Allah for all the mistakes that have been done so far, and do worship. Muslims believe that on this night the blessings and mercy of God are abundant, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and that the annual decree is revealed to the angels who also descend to earth. It is a best time to do everything in a good or positive thing, such as I’tikaf in the Masjid/Mosque, recite the Qur’an, do Tahajjud and etc. So, for everyone reading Qur’an, they will be approached by angels and this is the sign of blessing from Allah. Then, devil can’t do anything. We will get multiple rewards by reading every single letter on it.
When Lailatul Qadr/night of Qadr come? The night of Qadr is happened at odd night the last ten days of ramadan.
Special Dua (Do’a) recommended by our Prophet Muhammad SAW:
اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
He who observed the fasts of Ramadan with faith and seeking reward (from Allah), all his previous sins would be forgiven, and he who observed prayer on Lailat-ul- Qadr with faith and seeking reward (from Allah), all his previous sins would be forgiven.
[Sahih Muslim Book 6, Hadith 209]
