5 Authentic Signs of Laylatul-Qadr

The Night of Decree (Laylatul-Qadr) was mentioned in the Quran in chapter 97:1-5:

Indeed, We sent the Quran down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.

So we know that this night is better than a thousand months. What does that really mean?

That means that any act of worship that you’re doing that night, it is as though you had been doing that act of worship a thousand months. For example if you make du’a during that night it’s as though you made that supplication for a thousand months!

This is why a lot of Muslims stay up very late at night during the last 10 nights of Ramadan and try to seek this night so that they can have that kind of reward.

Some of the things Muslims do during that night is they:

– Recite the Quran because the Quran was sent down in the Night of the Decree.

– Also they’re making istighfar, asking for forgiveness from Allah. So imagine if you’re asking for forgiveness for 83 years straight continuously!


– Offering extra rakahs of prayers.

– Making plenty of du’a and there is actually a specific du’a that was taught by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to his wife Aisha:

Aisha said:

“O messenger of Allah. What do you think I should say in my supplication if I come upon Laylatul Qadr?”

He said:

Say: Allahumma innaka afuwwun tuhibbu al afwa fa’fu anni.

(O Allah You are forgiving and love forgiveness so forgive me.) (Ibn Majah)

THE SIGNS OF LAYLATU-L-QADR

1- PEACEFUL NIGHT

It’s a pleasant night and we know it’s going to be a pleasant night from that same Quran verse:

Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.

So we’re looking for a night that is very calm, very peaceful.

Ibn Khuzaymah said that “it is a night that is neither hot nor cold.”

2- THE MOON LOOKS LIKE A PIECE OF A PLATE

Some say it looks like half a plate. (Muslim)

3- IN THE LAST ODD NIGHTS

The night is in the last ten nights on the odd nights: 21st ,23rd ,25th ,27th ,29th of Ramadan.

There are lot of people who try to seek the night of decree on the 27th of Ramadan simply because it did occur on the 27th before. There are narrations for it but there are also narrations for other nights.

The scholars said that this is something with wisdom otherwise if you know that is doing to be in the 27th why would you do the acts of worship on any other night.

So basically, Laylatul-Qadr changes from year to year but still in the last ten nights on the odd nights so that the Muslims actually keep working hard for the rewards.


4- THERE IS POSSIBILITY OF RAIN


So there are narrations where Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) where he did mention that he dreamed about Laylatul-Qadr and in that dream he had prostrated and when he came up, his face was wet with rain water and mud. (Al-Bukhari, 813)

5- THE SUNRISE FOR THE NEXT MORNING

Narrations say that it is going to be sun with no rays. So that means it’s a very weak sun, you can look straight at it. But the explanation for why, imam An-Nawawi gave us two explanations:

Allah just wants it that way. He wanted the sun to come up in a very special way after a special night.

Because the amount of angels filling the sky, they’re actually blocking the sunbeams.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
