Laylatul Qadr 2017: Laylatul Qadr Story,Dua,Hadith,SMS [Updated]

Laylatul Qadr 2017: Hey you are here to know about the laylatul qadr story for this coming ramadan kareem 2017 to perform activities to be done on this laylatul qadr 2017.

In this post I have included some best collection of truth about the laylatul qadr 2017 to know all about like facts and more things to wish you friends and family members.

Laylatul Qadr 2017

Lailatul Qadr History:

Laylatul-Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر‎), The Night of Power, is the holiest night in the Islamic calendar. Muslims believe that on this night, the Quran was sent down from the heaven to the Earth. The exact date of this night is unknown, but occurs on one of the last ten odd nights of Ramadan (21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th, or 29th). According to Islamic tradition, Muslims who stay up on this holy night worshipping God will have all their sins forgiven. Furthermore, they will be granted as many good deeds as though they had worshipped continuously for one thousand months (83.3 years).

Lailatul Qadr Facts:

An entire chapter of the Quran, called "Al-Qadr" is devoted to explaining the merits of worshipping on Lailatul Qadr.

According to Islamic tradition, the following are signs of The Night of Power every year:  A peaceful night with moderate temperatures, no shooting stars, and a moon that shines without rays.  The sun, when it rises, will appear as a disk with no beams of light coming out of it.

Some Muslims believe that the entire Quran was revealed to Angel Gabriel on this night, who conveyed it to Muhammad verse by verse over a period of twenty-three years, when ordered to do so by God.

Muslims who can afford to take time off work spend every single one of the last ten nights in prayer, hoping to find Laylatul Qadr, trying to emulate the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad.

They fast during the day and study the Quran and pray during the night.

 The Prophet Muhammad used to do the same. In fact, according to his wife, he would tighten his belt and pray all night, and encouraged his family members to pray all night as well. (Bukhari, Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 32, Number 241)

Lailatul Qadr Top Events and Things to Do

There are several Islamic recommended acts for Muslims to do on this night: Study the Quran, give charity, strive for forgiveness, pray, make duma (a more personal prayer during which Muslims ask God for things that they need), and remember the power of God.

For Lailatul Qadr Muslims congregate in mosques to pray and worship all night together. Imams often give sermons that teach listeners about the best prayers they can make that night.

On this night, many Muslims give money away in charity, after more than 20 days of fasting.  The rewards of charity are multiplied on Laylatul-Qadr.  This can be evidenced by the Prophet
Muhammad's teachings: Whoever draws near to Allah during it (Ramadan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times. - Ibn Khuzaymah, Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887.

"A-úthu billáhi minash shaytánir rajeem. Bismilláhir rahmánir raheem.

Al hamdu lillahi nahmaduhu wanasta’eenahu, wanastagh-firuhu, wanatoobu ilayhi, wana’oothu Billaahi min shuroori an-fusinaa, wamin sayyi aati a’maalinaa.     May- Yahdillahu fa huwal muhtad, wa may- yudlill falan tajida lahu waliyan murshida.    Wa ash-hadu an Laa ilaaha ill-Alláh, wahdahoo laa shareeka lah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhoo warasooluh"

During the last ten nights of Ramadhán, we feel a special kind of excitement, a special sense of anticipation, because of one very important night. I refer of course to "Lailatul Qadr," the Night of Power.

"Bismilláhir Rahmánir Rahím! Innaa an zal naa hu fee lailatil Qadr, Wamaa ad-raaka maa lailatul Qadr. Lailatul Qadri khairun minal fee shahr. Tanaz zalul malaa-ikatu -war-roohu fee haa bi-ithnee rabbi him min qul li-amr. Salaamun heeya hattaa mat-la-ill fajr."

Sura 97 of The Holy Qur'án reads:

"We have indeed revealed this [Message] in the Night of Power. And what will explain to you what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand Months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Alláh’s permission on every errand. Peace… this until the rise of Morning!"

What is so special about Lailatul Qadr? Why does The Holy Qur'án describe it as "better than a thousand months?" If there were no Lailatul Qadr, what would it matter?

The first Laylatul Qadr, …was the night that changed history. It was the night that Jibreel alayhis salaam brought the first revelation, the first verses of The Holy Qur'án were pronounced in a cave on Jabal Nur, the Mountain of Light. Just imagine, if there were no Lailatul Qadr, there would have been no Qur'an today, if Alláh had sent no new revelation after Nabi Isa. The world would have been in an unimaginable mess! There would have been no authentic record of the pure and unadulterated Word of Alláh, for all generations to be able to seek and find correct guidance. Mankind would have followed Torahs and Bibles, which were constantly under revision and review, depending on what was expedient at the time. The Holy Books we would have used today, would have drifted further and further away from the original teachings of those great prophets Moses and Jesus.

Let us consider the world scenario on the day before Jibreel alayhis salaam appeared in the Cave on Jabal Nur, to pronounce those majestic words,

"Bismilláhir Rahmánir Rahím! Iqra’ bismirab bikal lathee khalaq. Khalaqal insaana min ‘alaq! Iqra’ wa rabbukal akramul lathee ‘al lama bil qalam. ‘Al lamal insaana maalam ya’-lam!"

"Read, in the Name of your Lord and Cherisher, who created! Created man out of a mere clot of congealed blood. Read, and your Lord is most Bountiful. He who taught the use of the Pen. Taught man that which he knew not!"

Think about the state of the world just before these words were pronounced! Pompous, arrogant and unjust rulers governed Rome and Persia, who were superpowers at the time of Muhammad. They believed that might was right. They regarded the Arabs as a wild and uncivilised people, unworthy of conquest. The followers of two great religions, the Jews and the Christians, had lost the original teachings of Nabi Musa and Nabi ‘Isa alayhis salaam. They had substituted those teachings with their own writings. Their Torah and Bible now reflected their own human desires. These holy books could no longer be regarded as the pure, unadulterated Word of Alláh.

Outside the Christian and Jewish worlds, the Arabs were practising Idolatry, and they had desecrated the Holy Ka’ba with 360 idols, almost one for each day of the year. Women were treated unjustly, and newborn daughters were often buried alive. Nowhere appeared any sign of hope and it seemed that mankind was doomed to a dismal fate. Then literally and metaphorically, out of the darkness of the Cave, and out of the darkness of human despair, there appeared the first words of The Holy Qur'án, the first rays of light for suffering humanity.

That same light that filled the Cave during Laylatul Qadr, that filled the heart of our dear Prophet Muhammad [sws], has shone brightly down the ages, to fill our lives also. Year after year, for over 1,400 years, almost a Millennium and a half, the light of Laylatul Qadr has brought hope and renewed faith, to a world that would otherwise be stumbling in total darkness and despair.

Dear brothers and sisters, we all take great care that our homes have adequate gas and electric power. It is also important that we do not neglect our spiritual power. Let us plug our heart and soul in to Laylatul Qadr and recharge our ímán batteries. If Muslims hadn’t been so lax about their faith over the last few centuries, we would not today have to witness the humiliation and tragedy of Chechnya, Bosnia, Kosovo, or Kashmir.

Let us spend our Night of Power, remembering Alláh, swt, and offering thanks to Him, for his countless blessings that we enjoy each moment of our lives. Let us ask Alláh, Glorified and Exalted is He, to lift the burden of injustice and oppression from so many Muslim communities around the world. Let us ask him for his Divine power to help us become the dynamic, disciplined and balanced community, the Ummatan wasatan, the Witness to the nations, as described in The Holy Qur'án. Let us spend this historic night asking our Lord and Master, to help us become the model Muslims that our children and all future generations would love to follow.

"Alhamdu lillahi Rabbil ‘Aalameen. Was-salaatu was-salaamu alaa Khairil mursaleen. Muhammadin-nabeey-yil Ummiy-yee, wa-‘alaa aalihee, wasah-bihee, aj-ma’een.

Ammaa ba’ad:  Innalláha wa malaaikata yusallúna alan nabi. Yá ay yuhal latheena ámanu sallú alayhi wasalli mú tas leema. Allahumma salli alá Muhammad, wa ala áli Muhammad, kama salayta ala Ibrahim, wa ala ali Ibrahim. Allahumma barik ala Muhammad, kama barakta ala Ibrahim, wa ala ali ibrahim. Fil ála meen, innaka hameedun majeed."

Second Khutbah:

Sub’ hanallahi wal hamdu lillah, wala hawla wala quwwata illah billah yu althi yual theem

The Night of Power energised history. The brilliant and irresistible light of Alláh’s revelation illuminated the darkness of human ignorance and depravation. In the 7th Century, Islam lit up the world. And despite many setbacks, trials and tribulation, in communities large and small, Islam still lights up the darkness of human weakness, ignorance and evil.

What can we learn from the history of Islam, that will help us build a better future?

We learn that no miracle will come out of the sky, just because we made a wish. In Sura Al-Ra’d, 13:v11, we read:

"Truly, never will Alláh change the condition of a people, until they change what is within themselves…"

Alláh will not change our condition, until we make the effort to turn away from what displeases Him, and we strive, sincerely, to seek His pleasure. At times, we might feel that this is too difficult.

 It seems much easier just to do what pleases ourselves, like most other people seem to be doing. Remember that our Prophet Muhammad [sws] started his prophetic mission, as a minority of one. Family and friends later joined him.

But he had to work hard, with sincerity, patience and perseverance, for his community to grow. Because he was determined, and Alláh was pleased with him, that growth was inevitable, and it developed in quantity and quality.

Within a few years, the effect of that first Laylatul Qadr was that it transformed the weak and troublesome Arab tribes into a nation of Supermen. It was as if the desert sand of Arabia had turned into gunpowder, and when the fuse of ímán was lit, the Muslims became an unstoppable, irresistible force.

They exploded out of the Arabia, north, south, east and west. Even the Roman and Persian superpowers who used to regard them with contempt, were swept aside within a few short years.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, that mystical and mysterious force that descends by the command of Alláh Most High, during Laylatul Qadr, the Night of Power, has proven itself in history.

Its clear evidence is there for all of us to see. Remember that it was during Ramadhán that some of Islam’s noblest and greatest victories were achieved, for example, the Battle of Badr, the Conquest of Makka, the Conquest of Spain, and the Defeat of the Mongols at Ain Jalut.

That same irresistible force that helped our noble ancestors to attain victory in these epic battles, is there for us to discover and use, if we make a sincere and total commitment to serve Alláh.

From this great Night onwards, let it be our goal, our lifetime commitment. Let us make a covenant with Alláh, that we will serve him alone, with all our energy, wealth, talent and possessions. Remember, Alláh wants us to be full-time Muslims, not merely Friday Muslims or Eid or Ramadhán Muslims. Alláh does not accept anything divided, especially our divided loyalty.

So, my dear Brothers and Sisters, why not let me, and you all here, make a commitment today, to serve Alláh whole-heartedly, and to let our first love be our love for Alláh. And for His sake alone, let us strive every moment of every day to purify and improve ourselves, in body, heart and soul.

Anything less than this will be unworthy of us who choose to call ourselves Muslims and Believers. Only when we have purified our hearts from greed, vanity, cowardice, envy and malice, and we have filled that space with a love of truth, beauty and justice, can we expect Alláh to change our condition. Once we have won this Jihád al nafs, this battle against our innerself, we can deserve the help and Mercy of Alláh.

I pray that during this historic time, in this Holy Month, on this Great Night of Power, when His angels are sent by His Command, that Alláh Most Gracious will accept our commitment.

May He also help us to purify our hearts, strengthen our faith, and enable us to meet every challenge, overcome every difficulty in our lives.

May Alláh allow us to serve Him in our work, in our leisure, in our study, in our business and professions and in our family life and social relations. And when the time comes for us finally to return to Him, may Alláh admit us to the companionship of those whom He loves as His friends.
