An interesting message from Sheikh Tawfique Chaudhury:


Assalamualaikum everyone,

Good dreams are from Allah and they are a part of Prophethood that is still left for us as in the authentic hadeeth. It doesn't change the Shariah, but confirms it and is a glad tiding for believers. If someone sees a good dream, then we should tell others that we love and are close to us so that they may benefit from its message.

Just thought I would let all my beloved friends know that no less than 6 dreams from 6 different righteous people who have confided in me that they saw the night of Power this year to be in the 27th night, including my Sheikh's wife as well. In one of them, one of the my friends and a student from medina university said that on two consecutive nights, he was told in his dream – the 27th, the 27th.

So please do your best to NOT miss this night this Ramadan. Don't sleep - pray, make dua and read the Quran. Remember every second of the night equals days - so keep your tongue moist with Allah's remembrance and remember me and all Muslims in your dua.

If you need, you can post this message on other boards for their benefit and send it out to those who may benefit from it and those whom you love. May Allah forgive you and I in this blessed night. Ameen.

Jazakallahulkhair.

Question: Some of the Muslims have taken the 27th night of Ramadhaan as Laylatul-Qadar. Is their any basis for this specification and is there any evidence for this?

Response: Yes, there is basis for this specification and that is that the night of the 27th of Ramadhaan is mentioned in the hadeeth, in Saheeh Muslim, on the authority of 'Ubayy Ibn Ka'b (radhi-yallaahu 'anhu).
However, the overwhelming opinion of the people of knowledge, from the forty or more opinions, is that Laylatul-Qadar is in the last ten nights, and specifically in the last seven of those nights. So, it is possible that it could be on the 27th night, the 25th, the 26th or even the 24th night (and so on).
Because of this, it is befitting for (each) person to exert (himself in worship) during all those nights such that he does not deny himself the excellence of them and the reward (to be gained) in them.

Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) says:
{We sent it (this Qur.aan) down on a blessed night [(i.e. Laylatul-Qadar) in the month of Ramadaan]. Verily, We are ever warning [mankind that Our Torment will reach those who disbelieve in Our Oneness of Lordship and in Our Oneness of worship]}, [Soorah ad-Dukhkhaan, Aayah 3]

And He (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) also said:
{Verily! We have sent it (this Qur.aan) down in the night of al-Qadar. And what will make you know what the night of al-Qadar is? The night of al-Qadar is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allaah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months). Therein descend the angels and the Rooh (Jibreel) by Allaah's Permission with all Decrees. Peace! (all that night, there is Peace and Goodness from Allaah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn}, [Soorah al-Qadar, Aayaat 1-5]

How to Seek Laylatul-Qadr

Shaykh Muhammad Nasir-ud-Deen al-Albani

Adapted from "The Night Prayers: Qiyam & Tarawih from works by Muhammad Nasir ud-Deen al-Albani
(and other scholars)"
Compiled by Muhammad al-Jibali, © 1997 QSS wwwislamicboardcom -
Laylat ul-Qadr is the most blessed night. A person who misses it has indeed missed a great amount of good. If a believing person is zealous to obey his Lord and increase the good deeds in his record, he should strive to encounter this night and to pass it in worship and obedience. If this is facilitated for him, all of his previous sins will be forgiven.

Praying Qiyaam

It is recommended to make a long Qiyaam prayer during the nights on which Laylat ul-Qadr could fall. This is indicated in many hadeeths, such as the following:
Abu Tharr (radhiallahu `anhu) relates:
"We fasted with Allah's Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) in Ramadaan. He did not lead us (in qiyaam) at all until there were seven (nights of Ramadaan) left. Then he stood with us (that night - in prayer) until one third of the night had passed. He did not pray with us on the sixth. On the fifth night, he prayed with us until half of the night had passed. So we said, 'Allah's Messenger! Wouldn't you pray with us the whole night?' He replied:
'Whoever stands in prayer with the imaam until he (the imaam) concludes the prayer, it is recorded for him that he prayed the whole night.'…" [Recorded by Ibn Abi Shaybah, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmithi (who authenticated it), an-Nasa'i, Ibn Majah, at-Tahawi (in Sharhu Ma`an il-Athar, Ibn Nasr, al-Faryabi, and al-Bayhaqi. Their isnad is authentic.]
[Point of benefit: Abu Dawud mentioned: "I heard Ahmad being asked, 'Do you like for a man to pray with the people or by himself during Ramadan?' He replied, 'Pray with the people' I also heard him say, 'I would prefer for one to pray (qiyaam) with the imaam and to pray witr with him as well, for the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said: "When a man prays with the imaam until he concludes, it is recorded that he prayed the rest of that night." [Masaa'il]]
Abu Hurayrah (radhiallahu `anhu) narrated that the Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said:
"Whoever stands (in qiyaam) in Laylat ul-Qadr [and it is facilitated for him] out of faith and expectation (of Allah's reward), will have all of his previous sins forgiven." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim; the addition "and it is facilitated for him" is recorded by Ahmad from the report of `Ubaadah Bin as-Samit; it means that he is permitted to be among the sincere worshippers during that blessed night.]

Making Supplications

It is also recommended to make extensive supplication on this night. `A'ishah (radhiallahu `anha) reported that she asked Allah's Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam), "O Messenger of Allah! If I knew which night is Laylat ul-Qadr, what should I say during it?" And he instructed her to say:
"Allahumma innaka `afuwwun tuh.ibbul `afwa fa`fu `annee - O Allah! You are forgiving, and you love forgiveness. So forgive me." [Recorded by Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmithi. Verified to be authentic by Al-Albani]

Abandoning Worldly Pleasures for the Sake of Worship

It is further recommended to spend more time in worship during the nights on which Laylat ul-Qadr is likely to be. This calls for abandoning many worldly pleasures in order to secure the time and thoughts solely for worshipping Allah. `A'ishah (radhiallahu `anha) reported:
"When the (last) ten started, the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) would tighten his izaar (i.e. he stayed away from his wives in order to have more time for worship), spend the whole night awake (in prayer), and wake up his family." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
And she said:
"Allah's Messenger (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) used to exert more (in worship) on the last ten than on other nights." [Muslim]
