During these last ten days of the holy month of Ramadan many Muslims increase their worship of Allah seeking for Laylat Al Qadr also known as the Night of Power.
Many mosques in the country are almost full to capacity with mainly young Muslim men and women praying throughout the night seeking for the Night of Power.
Although the holy Prophet did not mention exactly when the Night of Power would be, most scholars believe it falls on one of the odd-numbered nights of the final ten days of Ramadan, such as the 19th, 21st, 23rd, 25th, or 27th days of Ramadan.
It is most widely believed to fall on the 27th day of Ramadan.
As we seek the night, we encourage all Muslims in the country to dedicate more time to Quranic recitation, devotional readings, and prayer, as the night’s holiness is believe to make it a very good time for prayers to be answered.
The last ten days of Ramadan are considered a particularly a spiritually important time, as any of the days may be Laylat Al Qadr, and thus worshippers strive to be especially observant during this period.
We were told that whoever establishes the prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s reward, all his past sins will be forgiven.
In fact, the rewards of the one Night of Power are more than the rewards for good deeds in a thousand months.
We, therefore, urge all Muslims to keep searching for the Night of Power with more prayers and good deeds.
