Auspicious Months and Occassions

Laylatul Qadar (The Night of Power)

One of the most meritorious aspects of the month of Ramadhaan is that it contains Laylatul Qadr, the most blessed night of the year. It is the night which Allah Ta’ala chose to reveal the Holy Qur’aan. The Holy Qur’an has mentioned that this night is better than one thousand months. It means that the worship performed in this night brings more reward than the worship performed in one thousand months.

Rasulullah [Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam] has mentioned that in this night, Allah Ta’ala directs His special mercy towards the people of the earth, accepts the duas made by His slaves and forgives a large number of people who repent and make dua.

 

When is Laylatul Qadr?

Laylatul Qadr falls in one of the last five odd nights of Ramadhaan i.e. 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th and 29th. One should spend all the five nights in worship and ibaadah, so that he may find Laylatul Qadr with certainty.

A Gift of Ramadhaan

Most Respected Brothers

  • Our thinking must always be Islamic. It is with such thoughts that our lives will become Islamic. We will be saved from the mindset of others.

  • Value your time and use it profitably. Taking care of one’s time is the crux of Tasawuf.

  • Live a life of shukar (appreciation). With shukar, a person will be able to value the favours of Allah Ta’ala and will result in an increase in favours. You will pass your life in peace. Being ungrateful results in one’s peace being snatched away.

The 15th Night of Sha’baan

Allah Ta'ala's blessings and favours are showered upon His servants at all times. However, on certain occasions the mercy, barakah and forgiveness of Allah Ta'ala are showered upon us to an even greater extent. One such occasion is the "Fifteenth night of Sha'baan". It is up to us to take advantage of these occasions and earn the forgiveness of Allah Ta'ala.

It is narrated from Hadhrat Mu'az bin Jabal (Radi Allahu Anhu) that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "On the fifteenth night of Sha'baan, Allah Ta'ala bestows His special attention on His entire creation. He then forgives His entire creation except one who worships idols and one who has hatred for others.

In another Hadith, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "On the fifteenth night of Sha'baan, Allah Ta'ala descends to the nearest heaven. Thereafter Allah Ta'ala announces; 'Is there anyone who seeks forgiveness so that I may forgive him? Is there anyone who desires anything so that I may grant his wish?' Allah Ta'ala then fulfils the requests of all except one who worships idols and an adulterer."
