Assalamualikum, First name / Friend!,


“Indeed, We sent it down during a blessed night. Indeed, We were to warn [mankind]. On that night is made distinct every precise matter – [Every] matter [proceeding] from Us. Indeed, We were to send [a messenger] As mercy from your Lord. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.”

-Quran 44:3-6


We are currently in the midst of Ramadan, the month where we re-establish our commitment to Islam. Ramadan was the month the Quran was revealed to the Prophet . The Quran was revealed on Laylat Al-Qadr, or the Night Of Power.


Laylat Al-Qadr falls in one of the last ten nights of Ramadan. The exact date is not known. Worship done on this night alone is equal to 1,000 months (83.33333333333333 years), about an entire lifetime!


The Holy Quran

On Laylat Al-Qadr Muslims stay up praying, reading Quran, asking for forgiveness, and making dua.


Aisha reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, I see that you know which night is the Night of Decree (Laylat Al-Qadr). What should I say during it?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Say: O Allah, you are pardoning and generous. You love to forgive, so forgive me.”

-Sunan al-Tirmidhī 3513


This is a great opportunity for Muslims to get reward and forgiveness from Allah.

"We have sent it [the Quran] down in the Night of Qadr. And what may let you know what the Night of Qadr is? The Night of Qadr is much better than one thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend in it, with the leave of your Lord, along with every command. Peace it is till the debut of dawn."-Quran 97:1-5

Ubaida ibn As-Samit reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, came out to inform people about the Night of Decree (Laylat Al-Qadr) in Ramadan, but two Muslim men were insulting each other. The Prophet said, “Verily, I have come out to tell you about the Night of Decree, but two men were insulting each other. Thus, its knowledge was removed and perhaps it is better for you. Look for it during the seventh, ninth, or fifth night of the last ten nights.”

-Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 49


Laylat Al-Qadr is an important night. It should be devoted to praying, asking for forgiveness, reading Quran, and making dua. Make sure you take advantage of the night and use your time wisely.
