When is the Night of Al-Qadr?

Imaams Al-Albaanee and Ibn Al-'Uthaimeen The Night of Al-Qadr occurs in the last ten nights of Ramadan during an odd night (i.e. 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th). However the scholars differ as to if it is fixed to one of these odd nights every year or if it changes every year to a different odd-numbered night. Below are the sayings of two of our great scholars, Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-'Uthaimeen and Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee (may Allah have mercy on both of them).

Ramadan : The Excellence of the Night of Qadr

Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Whosoever performs the night prayer on the night of Al-Qadr with emaan (firm belief) and seeking reward will have all his past sins forgiven." [Al-Bukhari 4/2550] This hadeeth is evidence for the virtue of the night of Al-Qadr as well as performing qiyaam during it. And it indicates that it is a grand night, which Allah has honoured and made better than a thousand months in regards to its blessing and the blessings found in the righteous deeds that are performed in it. Thus it is better than the worship of a thousand months and that is equivalent to eighty three years and four months. Due to this, Read more ...

Ramadan : Laylat ul-Qadr

In each of the daily prayer we offer, we solemnly declare to Allah, “Iyyaka na’budu” (You alone do we worship). While the intelligent and committed believer realizes that his very lifestyle spells worship, he knows, remembering the words of our Prophet sallAllahu 'alayhi wa sallam that “Du’aa’ (supplication) is worship” [Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud] Allah, the Most Merciful, has encouraged the believers to take advantage of certain times during the year to make du’aa’. Such an occasion presents itself annually during Ramadan — especially on the Laylat ul-Qadr, the Night of Power. On this night, the single most important event in human history Read more ...

Ramadan

“We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: And what will explain to thee what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by God's permission, on every errand: Peace!...This until the rise of morn!” [Surah Al Qadr 97:1-5] The Month of Ramadan is the month of obedience to Allah, the time the people have to bring themselves to Allah. Many people think that Ramadan is the month of being lazy and laid back. That is not the month of Ramadan, it is the month of working hard, keeping away from sins, keeping away from desires. The month of Ramadan is the best month. Read more ...

Laylat al-Qadr : When the Night Equals A Thousand It was narrated that in the days that Musa (Peace be upon him) wandered with Bani Israel in the desert an intense drought befell them.
