In it, descend The Angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) Spirit (Gabriel) with Allah’s consent with all Decrees. (All the night) There will be tranquility (and the goodness of Allah to His faithful slaves) until dawn.” (Surah al-Qadr)

The Bible shows us that The Night of Power (Laylat al-Qadr) is a more valuable night with a higher rank than the other 1,000 months. If you convert it into years, it amounts to more than the age of 83!

The majority of people don’t reach the age of 83, yet God Almighty has blessed humanity with one night of innumerable blessings, a night that is worth more than the time of your life! What do you think about that? All praise to God the Most Merciful, The Most Merciful!

It is the night that Angel Gabriel and all angels descend down from heaven to bring the angels from Heavens and descend to Earth.

A night full of blessings and grace showered on Muslims by God, and each one of them sincerely seeks Him and asks for forgiveness and guidance when the pages of their journals and books are opened, and their futures are set for the upcoming year.

God Almighty is adamant about it in Qur’an when He declares:

” Therein (the night of Laylatul Qadr) is decreed each matter regarding restrictions.” (Surah al-Dukhan 4.)

This refers to the issues of deaths and births and provisions and calamities for the entire (coming) year, as determined by God.

According to the Prophet, Muhammad was to be hunted for in the final ten nights of Ramadan and will occur most likely on a solitary night.

In these ten nights of darkness, Muslims from all over the globe, both in groups as well as in private, in public and private, and in all languages that exist and in every minute of the day, endeavor to worship God sincerely and earnestly and seek entry into His Heavenly Kingdom and security from His Hellfire.

These are the nights where the very essence of Tawhid, which is the oneness of God Almighty alone, is rekindled and revived in people’s hearts, Muslims, and their families because their fate and outcome in the future entirely lie in the hands of their God.

The night-long prayers are formulated, and prayerful supplications are made, each tongue filled with the memory of Allah and every heart aching to be awed by His grace.

The hands are raised, the eyes are brimming with tears, the knees are bent, and the heads are placed on the floor to show humility, completely submitting to God.

It is a time on which Muslims are made aware of the fact that they’re slaves to God and that their creator is Almighty and All-Powerful; this world is a perishable thing while the Afterlife is eternal, and every beat of their hearts brings them closer to their ultimate goal.

So you, dear sisters and brothers, take a lookout and search in the direction of Decree and intensify your worship during this time that night, a time when peace will be poured out over the Earth, and your every prayer will be heard while your errors will be cleansed.

We pray to God Almighty to let us get into the evening of Decree, give us the incredible possibility of gaining closer to Him this wonderful night, and bless and accept our praise to Him this evening as well as all other nights.
