(May Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah be on all of you)
"Lail" is an Arabic word which means "Night" while  The word "Qadr" is also Arabic and it can be translated as destiny, honour and dignity. "Lailat ul Qadr" means The night of Power/Decree.  This is a very important night in Islam and in lives of all Muslims. A night when the events for the coming year are handed over to the angels thus, news of death, sustenance, Haj, rain, disasters, etc. all are written and handed over to the relevant angels on this night  (Tafseer Ibn e Kathir). So you can also translate it as the night of destiny as Allah mentions about this night in Surah Dukhan verses 1-6.

Ha, Meem. By the clear Book, Indeed, We sent it down during a blessed night. Indeed, We were to warn [mankind]. On that night is made distinct every precise matter - [Every] matter [proceeding] from Us. Indeed, We were to send [a messenger] As mercy from your Lord. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing. [Surat 44,Ad-Dukhan  (Verses 1-6)].

This is a very much blessed night we cannot even imagine its importance but to make it easy for understanding, all the works for the coming year are decided in this night. Secondly, Quran got revealed on this night, thirdly, Gabriel A.S and angles come on earth in this night.

Allah said in Surah Qadr that this night is better than 1000 months i.e. (83.3 years), if we pray to this night we are not going to get the reward for praying one night but the reward for the prayers of 1000 months. What could be better to pray for a night and get the highest reward, definitely it's the Mercy of Allah for us and we can also pray for the welfare for us as all the works are being decided and handed over to the angels on this night.

Allah tells us this night is peace for the whole night till the appearance of Dawn. Here is the brief description in Quran's words in Surah Al-Qadr.




1. Verily! We have sent it (this Qur'an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)2. And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is?3. The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).4. Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allah's Permission with all Decrees, 5. Peace! (All the night, there is peace and Goodness from Allah to his believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn. (Surah 97 Al Qadr).

As far as determining
"Lailat ul Qadr" (the Night of Power /Decree) is concerned, it has been reported to be during one of the odd numbered nights of the last ten nights  of Ramadan, i.e. 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th. So the one who wanted to be blessed and get the maximum reward must try to find out this night.

Ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: He who is anxious to seek it (Lailat-ul-Qadr) should seek it in the last ten (nights of Ramadan). (Muslim , Book 006, Number 2622)

The one who fast for Ramadan and prays out of sincere faith and hope for the best reward from Allah, all his / her previous sins will be forgiven insha'Allah (if Allah wants).


Narrated by Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) The Prophet (May peace be upon him) said, "Whoever fasted the month of Ramadan out of sincere Faith (i.e. belief) and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his past sins will be forgiven, and whoever stood for the prayers in the night of Qadr out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven ."
(Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 32, Number 231)

Salim b. 'Abdullah b. 'Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported that his father said: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: So far as Lailat-ul-Qadr is concerned, some persons among you have seen it (in a dream) in the first week and some persons among you have been shown that it is in the last week; so seek it in the last ten (nights). (Muslim, Book 006, Number 2620).

Its better if someone can practice Itikaf (to devote ourselves for the sake of Allah's remembrance in Masjid (mosque) and avoid worldly deeds) in the last 10 days of Ramadan as it was practice of our beloved Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him).

Narrated by Aisha(Allah be pleased with her): Allah's Apostle used to practice Itikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, "Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan ," (Bukhari Volume 3, Book 32, Number 23)

Ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Seek it (Lailat-ul-Qadr) in the last (ten nights).If one among you shows slackness and weakness (in the earlier part of Ramadan), it should not be allowed to prevail upon him in the last week. (Muslim, Book 006, Number 2621).

Prophet Mohammad Peace be upon him asked us to pray as following if we may find Lailat ul Qadr.


Additional ref of Dua for Lailat-ul-Qadr : "Tirmadhi hadith # 3513 & Ibn e Majah hadith # 3850"

Lailat-ul-Qadr  Mubarak to all of you. May ALLAH forgive our sins and shower His blessings on us and may He guide us thorough all the life on right path Ameen. Lots of prayers and best wishes for all of you. You are also requested to remember me in prayers please.
