How should a Muslim seek Laila tul-Qadr?

Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree.
And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?

The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.

The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.

Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.”

Surah Al Qadr 97 1-5

It is recommended to supplicate a great deal in it, it is reported from ‘Aa’ishah, RA that she said
: “O Messenger of Allaah! What if I knew which night Lailatul-Qadr was, then what should I say in it?” He said: “Say: Allaahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee.” (O Allaah you are the one who pardons greatly, and loves to pardon, so pardon me.) (at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)

O brothers! You know the importance of this night, so stand in Prayer in the last ten nights, in worship, detaching oneself from the women, ordering your family with this, and increasing in actions of obedience and worship in it.

From ‘Aa’ishah, RA who said: “The Prophet SAW used to tighten his waist-wrapper (izaar) – (meaning detached himself from his wives in order to worship, and exerted himself in seeking Lailatul-Qadr), spend the night in worship, and wake the family in the last ten nights.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

May Allah Azzawajal grant us this night of bounty. May Allah Azzawajal accept our effort and act of worship and all our duas.

We ask Allah to give us a good destinyin this life and in the hereafter. We ask Him to give us excellent health in order we may

continue the work we are doing in His Path. We ask Him to saveguard all our affairs and to protect us against the accursed shaytan. We supplicate unto Him to bestow love, wisdom, patience and affection in our hearts for Him, for our family and all those who have submitted to His Divine Will.

Ameen
