    5 things to do on Laylatul Qadr



    So valuable is this Night of Qadr that the Quran devotes a special surah to
    it “Lailatul Qadr is better than a thousand months” [97:3]

    This one night surpasses the value of 30,000 nights. The most authentic account of the occurrence of the Night indicates that it can occur on any one of the last ten, odd numbered nights of Ramadan, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29.

    We should strive to stay up at least on the odd numbered nights of the last ten days. If we can't manage that then let us pray at least on the 27th night. If one prays on all of the last odd numbered nights then there is more chance that one may have caught this most powerful night and the reward is of over 83 YEARS OF WORSHIP! Subhanallah! Most will not even live upto that age!

    It is a night that we CANNOT miss out on so here is how we can maximise this blessed night:


    1. Recite the Qur’an abundantly


    Az-Zuhri used to say upon the coming of Ramadan, “It is only about reciting the Qur’an and feeding the poor.”

    Abdur-Raziq said, “When Ramadan came, Sufyan Ath-Thawri would give up all acts of (voluntary) worship and devote himself to the recitation of the Qur’an.”

    Laylatul Qadr is the night the Qur'an was revealed so we should spend much of the night reciting it for we will gain 700 hasanah or more by reciting each letter!


    2. Strive to gain forgiveness


    One should strive and do their utmost to gain the mercy of Allah especially in the odd numbered nights of the last ten days. If one leaves Ramadan without gaining the mercy of Allah then surely they are the most unfortunate ones and are the biggest losers in this world and the next.


    The main Dua for Laylatul Qadr is the following:

    Aisha (Ra) said: “I asked the Messenger of Allah: 'O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?' He said: 'Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.'

    "Allahumma innaka 'afuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee" (Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).


    Gaining forgiveness on laylatul Qadr


    Abu Huraira narrated that the Messenger said: “Whoever stands (in prayer) in Laylatul Qadr while nourishing his faith with self-evaluation, expecting reward from Allah, will have all of his previous sins forgiven.” (Bukhari and Muslim).

    We should sincerely repent for past and present sins with the intention of not repeating them again and ask of Allah Ta’aala to help us prevent ourselves from doing them again and ask Allah to perfect our characters and to help us improve ourselves in everyway possible.


    3. Do much Superogatory Prayers (Nafil)


    Rabi'ah ibn Malik al-Aslami reported that the Prophet sallallahu alehi wasallam said: "Ask (anything)." Rabi'ah said: "I ask of you to be your companion in paradise." The Prophet said: "Or anything else?" Rabi'ah said: "That is it." The Prophet sallallahu alehi wasallam said to him: "Then help me by making many prostrations (i.e., supererogatory prayers)." (Muslim)

    The Prophet peace be upon him said: “Whoever draws near to Allaah during it (Ramadaan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887.

    In this most blessed month of Ramadhan all good deeds are multiplied by 70 or more. Every Nafil one prays one will gain the reward of a Fard Salaah and every Fard Salah is the reward of 70 Fard salaah. Subhanallah what other time of the year is this possible? NONE! So let us make the best of these precious seconds and pray as many Nafil prayers as is possible!


    Here are some Nafil prayers we can pray on Laylatul Qadr:


    1. Two Rakat after performing Wudu (Ablution)


    Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him): “Tell me about the best of your deeds (i.e. one which you deem the most rewarding) since your embracing Islam because I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise.” Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) replied: “I do not consider any act of mine more rewarding than that whenever I make ablution at any time of night or day, I perform Prayer for as much as was destined for me to do.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)”


    2. Tahajjud

    Imam Abu Sa'id al-Khadimi said,

    "There is scholarly consensus (ijma`) that among the best of virtuous acts is the night vigil prayer." [al-Bariqa al-Mahmudiyya Sharh al-Tariqa al-Muhammadiyya]

    The scholars derived the following in regards to Tahajjud from the Qur'an and prophetic hadiths:

    1. The minimal night vigil prayer is 2 rakats. [Hindiyya, quoting Fath al-Qadir]

    2. Its optimal recommended amount is 8 rakats, because this was the general practice of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions). [Hindiyya, quoting Fath al-Qadir]

    3. Lengthier recitation is superior to a larger number of rakats prayed. [Durr al-Mukhtar, Radd al-Muhtar]

    4. It is recommended to start the night vigil with two short rakats, because of the hadith of Abu Hurayra that the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, "It you get up for night prayer, start with two short rakats." [Muslim, Ahmad, Abu Dawud]

    Ibn Mas`ud (Allah be pleased with him) was asked, "I cannot pray at night." He said, "Your sins have prevented you."



    4. Increase in Dhikr (Rememberance of Allah)


    We should glorify Allah night and day, especially in the last odd nights.

    Here are some easy and very beneficial Dhikr and glorification we can do throughout the last ten odd nights:

    1. Allahumma innaka 'afuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee

    2. Subhanallah

    3. Alhamdulillah

    4. Allahu Akbar

    5. Laa ilaha ilallah

    6. LA HAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH

    7. Asthaghfirullah

    8. SUB-HAN'ALLAH HIL AZEEM WA BI-HAM'DIHI,

    9. Subhāna-llāhi, wa-l-hamdu li-llāhi, wa lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa-llāhu akbar. Wa lā hawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāhi-l-aliyyi-l-azīm

    10. Lā ilāha illā-llāhu waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu lahu-l-mulku wa lahu-l-ḥamdu yuhyi wa yumītu wa huwa ḥayyu-llā yamūtu abadan abada, ḏū-l-jalāli wa-l-ikrām, biyadihi-l-khayr, wa huwa alā kulli Shay-in qadīr

    Or the shortened version:

    11. Laa ilaaha illal-laahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay-in qadeer

    One can also recite the durood that one recites in one's Salaah or a Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim


    5. Make much dua


    We should be very busy in Dua as much as we can especially in the last 10 odd numbered.

    Allah Almighty says in the Qur'an:

    "When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me." [2:186]

    The place of duaa is so high to Allah, that the Prophet(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim) had said: "Nothing is more honourable to Allah the Most High than du`a." [Sahih al-Jami` no.5268].

    Almighty Allah also said: "The most excellent worship is du`a." [Sahih Al-Jami` no. 1133]

    Therefore let us devote much of the night of Qadr in dua asking of Allah for his mercy and forgiveness for all of our past sins and making firm intentions to Allah that we will change for the better and strive to become closer to him as well as make our deen a FULL part of our lives and not just a little part of our life as Allah says:

    Allah tells us In the Qur'an to enter fully into our deen and not partly:

    O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy.... (Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

    So then will we not make Islam a FULL part of our lives? This is our best opportunity and if we don't take it and death comes to us then surely we will regret it for ETERNITY!

    And Allah knows best in all matters

    Re: 5 things to do on Laylatul Qadr

    7 Steps to Maximise Laylatul Qadr:

    1. Open fast (eat light) and pray Maghrib on time (In congregation for men - Walk to the Masjid)
    Pray 2 Sunnah and as many 2 Rakah Nawafil as you can manage.

    2.Recite Dua of repentance constantly from Maghrib to Fajr:

    Allahumma innaka 'afuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee

    'Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.'

    3. Pray Isha and Taraweeh (In congregation for men until imam finishes - walk to Masjid).

    4. After Taraweeh recite some Quran - even a page - with its meanings - as every letter could be worth over 30,000 good deeds tonight.

    5. Give charity - each pound could be worth over £30,000 tonight.
    Feed your brothers, sisters and Children in desperate need in Syria:

    6. Have Suhoor and leave 20-30 mins for sincere Dua, feeling remorseful, asking Allah to forgive all your sins, and make a firm commitment to stop your major sins that are destroying your imaan and connection with Allah. Then inshaAllah all your sins will be forgiven!

    The Prophet (Sallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam) said: "And whoever spends the night of Lailat Al-Qadr in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” [An-Nasa’i]

    7. Pray Fajr on time (In congregation for men - Walk to the Masjid).

    Then make Dua for Allah to accept your Worship and Dua's. Please also pray for me, my family and the entire Ummah!

    Re: 5 things to do on Laylatul Qadr

    *25th Night Tonight - Do you regret wasting most of Ramadan?*

    Hasan al-Basri said: "Improve your performance in what is left & you will be forgiven for that which has already passed. So take special care of the time you have left because you do not know when your soul will be turned over to Allah’s Mercy.”

    7 nights left so its not too late to turn things around. So make firm intention to make the best of what remains!

    *62% of target reached!*

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The person who strives on behalf of the widows & poor are like those who strive in the way of Allah & spend their days fasting & nights praying. [Bukhari]

    Get your share of these massive rewards & if it's Laylatul Qadr you could gain £30,000 for each £1!
