The last ten nights of Ramadan are here. This is an amazing, powerful, unique time. These days are the most spiritually charged days of the year, more full of power than a great star or the mighty ocean. And one of these days is Laylat al-Qadr, the Night of Power, equal to a thousand months. Every prayer is magnified, every good deed is multiplied exponentially.
What to say during Laylat al-Qadr? It is recommended to supplicate a lot during this night.
It is reported from ‘Aisha (ra), that she said: “O Messenger of ALLAH! What if I knew which night Lailatul-Qadr was, then what should I say in it?” The Prophet (PBUH) said.- “Say.-
(Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee.)
“O ALLAH You are The One Who pardons greatly, and loves to pardon, so pardon me.”
[reported by at-Tirmithi]
I also wish to remind everyone that all difficulties pass, all troubles pass. Hard times don’t last, but strong people do! Worry if you must, but do not fear. Allah is with you. He is The Forgiving, The Merciful, The Loving, and the Giver of Peace. Call upon Him, especially during this blessed time.
As one of my readers said, call upon Allah using His beautiful Names…
Ar-Rahman – All Compassionate
Ar-Raheem – Most Merciful
Al-Wadood – All Loving
You have no idea how much your worship at this special time is valued. More than any of us can count. SubhanAllah.
