Ameen, ameen, ameen ya RAB. 

Whoever fails to acquire the acceptance of Allah, those folks have ruined their souls with their own hands.  How unfortunate!

Ya Allah, please save us from the doom.

Ameen, ameen.   May The Almighty grant us maximum guidance. 

Speaking of Leilatul Qadr, and considering that a new day as per the Noble Quran begins at the crack of dawn (Fajr) when the slightest and earliest glimmer of light appears in the atmosphere, shouldn't the official observance of Leilatul Qadr start on the night of 27th Ramadan after Isha instead of night of 26th?  I mean, as our jurists practice at present, observance of the Night of Qadr starts soon after midnight of Ramadan 26, presuming that Ramadan 27th has begun because they are mixing up the clock calculation with the actual calculation of a new day starting from Fajr.   In reality, Ramadan 26 continues after midnight and ends at the start of Fajr which is Ramadan 27  .... and past midnight of Ramadan 27 is NOT Ramadan 28th, it's still Ramadan 27 until the start of Fajr.

Do you folks get my point?

I totally understand your point brother.  Correctly and logically, the new day of every month starts from the earliest moment of Fajr and ends at the following Fajr.   Therefore, 27 Ramadan begins from Fajr of 27.  After 12.00 p.m. (clock calculation) it's still 27th until the start of Fajr (dawn).  As you rightly said, our jurists are implementing the earthly clock calculation;  consequently, what they consider to be the start of Ramadan 27 is actually the continuation of late night 26.

Concerning Leilatul Qadr, the point is that observation of this Night on that particular calendar date is for the purpose of unanimity.  Since Allah Almighty has not disclosed the exact date of the Night of Qadr, we must put in additional prayers and Quran-reading on all 30 days of Ramadan and if we wish, we can pick a certain day of that month for the longest stretch of ibadah and dedicate it to the Night of Qadr.   So, even if the jurists are actually observing the Night of Qadr on the 26, it really doesn't matter from the perspective I mentioned.  But you perceived it spot on.  Past midnight of any day is not the start of a new day as per the Noble Quran.  Every new day starts at Fajr and Ramadan 27 starts from Fajr, not midnight.

Salams dear sisters and brothers.   Ramadan 27, 2019 as today ....... I hope all of you got enough time to stay up last night to pour your heart out before The Almighty.  We certainly did.   As the blessed month gradually draws to an end, May HE accept our fasts, salat and supplications throughout the month.  May HE also accept the one night we especially pick and dedicate to the Night of Qadr (the specific day when the contents of the Noble Book began coming to us).   Yes, we don't know exactly which night of Ramadan that is.  Only HE knows. 

It feels a bit sad when this blessed months begins to end.  No matter how hard we work to earn HIS pleasure, it always feels we haven't done enough.  Nor can we be sure whether or not we will have the privilege to stay around and experience the blessed month again the following year to earn more blessings. 

Brother TS, I do get your point.   My husband and I have also long thought of this aspect.  Our clerical authorities have mixed up the clock-rules of a.m. and p.m. with the real time during which the earth rotates and revolves, and it's this real time we need to focus on for deciding the start of a new day.

Subhan'Allah, yes sister.  Pouring our hearts out before Allah and talking to Him was truly elating for all of us too.  By the mercy of Allah, it was a great Night.  And indeed it's depressing when the blessed month comes to an end.
