A.I.R. originally shared: Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power)
The Messenger of ALLAH (SâllAllâhu ‘Alâihi Wâsâllâm) said:
“Verily this month has come to you; and therein is a night which is better
than a thousand months. Whosoever is deprived of it is deprived of all good; …
and none is deprived of its good except a totally unfortunate person.”
Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power) is the crowning glory of Ramadhan.
Its merit can be judged by the fact that it was the night in which
ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ) chose to send down the ‘from the
Lawh-Mahfudh (Preserved Tablet) to the earthly skies.
“Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree.
And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?
The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.
The angels and the Spirit (Jibreel) descend therein by
permission of their Lord for every matter.
Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.”
[Al-Qur’an Surah Al-Qadr (The Power)….97:1-5]
A thousand months are equivalent to 83 years and 4 months.
Fortunate is the person who spends this night in prayer and trying to
understand the Qur’an that made this night so special.
The person who spends this night in trying to draw closer to ALLAH
(Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ) through HIS revelation will be blessed with the
reward of having worshipped ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ) for at least
eighty three years and four months consecutively.
Since ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ) says that the Night of Power is
better than one thousand months the reward is even greater than that.
