Leilatul Qadr 2018

As-Salaam Alaikum dear everyone.

Leilatul Qadr 2018 will, InshAllah, be observed on the night of Ramadan 26th (June 10th).

In the Noble Quran, Allah Almighty has chosen not to mention precisely which day the Great Quran began being revealed to the beloved Prophet (pbuh).  Allah has only mentioned that the Revelation began in the month of Ramadan, that is, in one of the 30 days of the month of Ramadan.   Thus, extra worship is necessary throughout this month.  For the peace of our own souls, we want to select one day of this month as Leilatul Qadr when we must devote maximum time to prayers and the Quran.   We may pick that day as the night of 26th / fajr of 27th (as traditionally practiced) for the purpose of togetherness within our community during our worship of Allah Almighty.  Do please remember, the actual Day of Leilatul Qadr in Ramadan is known to Allah Almighty alone.  That might be the night of 26 Ramadan or some other night of the blessed month.  Allah-o-Alim.

Enjoy the following article from Islamic Finder
(edited for Quran alone forum by omitting unreliable hadith information)

'Leila-tul-Qadr' or 'Night of Power' or 'Night of Decree' is a very important occasion in the history of Islam and in our personal lives.   Allah Almighty says: 

"Indeed! We revealed it on the Night of Power. Ah, what will convey unto you what the Night of Power is!   The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.   The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the permission of their Rab, with all decrees.   (The night is) Peace until the rising of the dawn." 97:1-5  Surah Al-Qadr.

Allah The Almighty also says about this powerful night:

"Ha. Mim.   By the Scripture that makes plain.   Lo! We revealed it on a blessed night.  Lo! We are ever warning.   Whereon every wise command is made clear, As a command from Our presence.  Lo! We are ever sending,  A mercy from your Rab.  Lo! He, even He is the Hearer, the Knower,"  (44:1-6)  Surah Dukhan.

The Almighty said in the Qur'an in Surah Al-Baqarah :

"The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong)."  (2:185)  Al-Baqrah.

From the verses of the Qur'an, one can mention the following:

The Night Of Power is better for you to live, to experience and to enjoy than one thousand months of your life. Even if you were to live one thousand months (83.3 years) with sincerity, dedication, and sacrifices and with good intentions and deeds, the Night Of Power is still far better for you to live and to enjoy. The Revelation of the Qur'an started in the month of Ramadan and specifically on the Night Of Power. The Revelation of the Qur'an; a sign of Mercy, a guide and a blessing of Allah to mankind.  Anyone who is interested in finding the best guide, he/she should look into the teachings of the Qur'an. The Night of Power is a night of blessings.   Allah has blessed this Night. Therefore whosoever is interested in receiving the blessings of Allah may look forward to the Night of Power.

Concerning the sign of Lailatul-Qadr,  The angels and arch angel Jibreel, all descend down onto earth for many purposes. 

On the night of Leilatul Qadr one may spend the time collectively and/or individually observing the following activities:

-  Recitation of the Our'an.
-  Nafl prayers (after Taraweeh for those who attend it).
-  Remembrance of Allah or zikr.
-  Supplication or Dua for you and for others.
-  Pondering and contemplating on the universe, the creation of the Heavens and the Earth:   "...and they contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heaven and the earth?."(Al Imran: 191)
-  Reading a good tafsir (commentary) of the Qur'an.
-  Giving charity to others if you can afford.
-  Trying to explain Islam, if you know something about it, to those next to you so they will benefit from you. 

To summarize, We would like to mention the following:

The Night of Power is a very important occasion in Islam. Everyone is asked to live it and to enjoy it. This Night is a night of Mercy, a night of Blessing, a night of Peace and a night of Guidance. It is a night of Unification between the finite world of ours and the Infinite Universe of the Unseen. Anyone who is interested in attaining the Mercy of Allah will strive very hard to live and pray in the Night of Power. Anyone who is interested in receiving the blessings of Allah on the Blessed Night will work very hard to enjoy the Night of Power.

Our final supplication at the end of the Night of Qadr:

May Allah give us the strength, the power, the courage and the effort to do our best to obey HIM and follow HIS teachings.  Ameen ya RAB, ameen.

May Allah guide us and may Allah strengthen our Iman.  Ameen ya RAB, ameen.

May Allah help us to live another year with sincerity and devotion.  Ameen ya RAB-al-Alameen, ameen.

May Allah make us realize that one year of our life is over and that we are one year closer to making our final journey. Let us wake up and do our best to please Allah in our daily life.  Let us ask for forgiveness from Allah The Almighty.   Ameen ya RAB-al-Alameen, ameen, ameen.
