My pleasure to share with you my dear.
thanks for liking my effort.
so when will be Lailat-ul-Qadr fall this Ramadan?

if we fast with pakistan and qater it may be the night on 21, 23, 25, 27 or 29th Ramadan (this year as per aug, it may be 9, 11, 13, 15 or 17th night as islamic calander is having a 10 days difference so it can't be fix with aug so it may keep on changing, with Ramadan its fix with the stated days). in pakistan its one of the odd night of ramadan today, i m here just as trying to finalize my other post as i have to send it to cc team, just reading for checking errors.

if we fast with Saudia, UK and rest of countries for Ramadan its again the one night amongst
21, 23, 25, 27 or 29th Ramadan (for aug this year only, it may be 8, 10, 12, 14 or 16 ). i assume indian muslims are fasting with saudia, it depends upon the moon so not sure, please check with your nearest muslism about it.

the difference is because of the region and the moon but it doesn't effect on any thing or Lailat ul Qadr. The exact night is hidden and we have to search it in 5 nights so we can get more reward and do more worship of Allah. i hope its clear now?

n yes..i like the way u quotes sayings frm book..
quoting from original source is best especially when it comes to religion i don't believe other books or the web sites, 2ndly it gives the options to others to cross check the info and 3rd its better as it makes authentic whatever you are telling and people do believe what you tell, and Alhamdulilah (all the praise is for Allah), many people in my surroundings and on this forum do believe me for adopting this method. i have adopted it after listening Dr. Zakir Naik and against those people who tell any thing on the name of religion which can never be verified. I think this is the best way to stop or oppose them.

"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.

Thank u 
baraka allaho fik
