L@ylat Al Q@Dr

Again i repeat... Ramadan is almost over and i cant grasp that idea.. it just wont sink in.. when i compare it to my past Ramdans.. i feel really depressed*sigh*its not like it was before.. don't feel that much "barakeh" and spirituality.. its said that its signs that Judgement Day is near when u feel time passes by soo quickly...without barakeh... maybe its just me...

im just hoping i dont miss out on laylat Al Qadr... we don't realize how important this night trurely is! Laylat Al Qadr Khayrun min ALF shahr! so any deed you do on this night no matter how simple u think it is.. IT is better than whether its praying,sadaqa or even smiling in the face of ur muslim sister/brother.. oh wait let me clear on that point.. smiling in the face of ur muslim sister.. is considered sadaqa IF UR A GIRL.. if ur a GUY u better be looking away from the SISTAS (ghad al basar)heh

So men be friendly and smile to men and girlies to girlies.. :P

For those who don't know Laylat al-Qadr is a holy night also called the Night of Honor, which is equal to a THOUSAND MONTHS. All nights of Ramadan are holy nights but Laylat al-Qadr is the holiest night of this holy month. It is also the holiest night among all other holy nights throughout the entire year.

On this night, a countless number of angels descend with blessings and mercy until dawn, as they descend when the Qur’an is recited and they surround those sitting in circles in remembrance of Allah (SWT) and they lower their wings in presence of the
sincere seeker of knowledge in honor of Him.

We are not sure when it is exactly but its said to be in the final 10 days of Ramadan... most probably the 23rd 25th or 27th(most say its the 27th)...its an odd number and since every year every country decides to DISAGREE on a RAMADAN DATE! ( can we ever AGREE ON ANYTHING?)

Anyway we are left confused to which is the RIGHT NIGHT?!

so what we do in this situation is stick to the safe side and increase our efforts in ALL the last 10 nights of RAMADAN.. wa inshala we will All be lucky to win the rewards of this NIGHT.

so... why is it soo hard for us to just push oursleves in these last few days of RAmadan that are almost over... so that we can get as much rewards as possible...

Why are we soo caught up in life that when we come to pray or do something for God we feel lazy or sleepy... is it our sins that hold us back? is it too much temptation around us? i guess its both... Allahum 2u3fu 3anna

If a believer is eager to obey Allah (SWT) and increase the good deeds in his record, he should work hard to encounter this night and to pass it in worship and obedience. IF he does inshala all of his previous sins will be forgiven.

It is recommended to perform a long Qiyaam prayer and read Quran during the nights on which Lailatul Qadr could fall. This is indicated in many Hadiths, like: Abu Hurairah Radhiya Allahu `anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah, (SAW), said : "Whoever stands (in prayer) in Lailatul-Qadr out of Eemaan (faith and sincerety) and seeking reward then his previous sins are forgiven". {Bukhari}

the best prayer to say on this night is
Allahumma innaka 'affuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee
O Allaah You are The One Who pardons greatly, and loves to pardon, so pardon me.

May GOD accept our fasting & prayers this month and Allahum Balighna Laylat Al QAdr wa la ta7rimna iyaha min thunoobna :(--- AMeeeeeeen!

Sorry this was too long but believe me its important to remind ourselves always..

Well, not sure about earning extra cash Dino, but i appreciate your information on the special night. I understand it is not certain which night it is .. but still, i am wondering what the specific signs are. How do you know what night it is if noone tells you?

What if you wake up one morning and everyone is announcing it was the night before.. and you slept right through..? Is that possible?

Just curious....SK

sk ill tell u the signs... its said u can only know its laylat al qadr after its over.. u feel it...

here are some signs
llah (swt) describes the night as “..peace until the rise of the morn.”

[97:5] In various sayings, the Prophet (pbuh) described the night as serene,
tranquil, and peaceful. The sun at sunrise would appear reddish and without its normal blazing and sharp rays. Ubayy (R) said : "On the morning of the
night of Qadr the sun would rise without any beams; (it is like) a wash basin until it raises." [Muslim]

Abu Hurairah (R) said : "We mentioned the night of Qadr to the Messenger of Allaah (S) and he said: "Which of you remembers when the moon rises and it is like half a bowl." [Muslim]

Ibn Abbaas (R) said that the Messenger of Allaah (S) said : "The night of Qadr is a night of generosity and happiness, it is not hot and neither is it cold. The sun comes up in its morning weak, reddish." [Tabaranee, Ibn Khuzaimah and Bazzaar]

u feel a indescribable feeling of peace and spirituality... :) hope i helped sweetie mwa
