Laylatul Qadr - Odd Nights Ramadhan 2015 UK
Bismillah hir Rahmanir Raheem - in the Name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
So we have entered the last 10 days of Ramadhan, by the Grace of Allah (swt).
In the odd nights during this time we all strive to try and catch Laylatul Qadr, here are the dates for the odd nights for the brothers in the UK.
Tues 7th July - 21st Night of Ramadhan
Thurs 9th July - 23rd Night of Ramadhan
Saturday 11th July - 25th Night of Ramadhan
Monday 13th July - 27th Night of Ramadhan
Wednesday 15th July - 29th Night of Ramadhan
I hope Allah blesses us on this monumental night and that we may all catch the blessings of this night.
One of the best du'as to recite on this night is:
اللهم إنك عفو تحب العفو فاعفُ عني
Allahumma innaka affuwwun tuhibul afwa fa'a fu annee
O Allaah, You are forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined staying up and praying on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward. It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” Agreed upon. This hadeeth indicates that it is prescribed to observe Laylat al-Qadr by spending the night in prayer.
During these nights we must strive to worship Allah with the hope of reward!
