Receive your Reward and Blessings this Ramadan

While the month of Ramadan holds great significance for all Muslims, there is one night in particular that is revered more so than any other. That is the Night of Power, or Laylat ul-Qadr to give it its Arabic name, which falls on the 27th night of Ramadan – although some scholars dispute this and claim this night could be any of the odd numbers in the last 10 nights.

It is believed that for giving charity on Laylat ul-Qadr, the rewards and blessings are multiplied by that of a thousand months on this night, which is why many Muslims pay charitable obligations to reap these benefits. This is why charities like Children of Adam offer supporters the opportunity to spread donations over the last 10 nights of Ramadan to ensure they receive the rewards and blessings.

What is Laylat ul-Qadr/The Night of Power?

The Night of Power in Islam is one of the most notable dates for Muslims seeking redemption from Allah (SWT) for the selflessness of their good deeds. It is believed that any charitable acts performed on this night bring with them rewards that are greater than those accumulated over 1,000 months, meaning many Muslims give Zakat on this night or make additional good deeds to please Allah (SWT). 

What Happened on the Night of Power?

According to the Night of Power Islam story, Laylat ul-Qadr is the night Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received the first passages of the Holy Qur’an from the Angel Jibril as he was meditating in Mount Hira, near Mecca. Over the course of the next 23 years, Allah (SWT) would share his word with the Prophet (PBUH) via the Angel Jibril.

Why is the Night of Power Important?

The reason the Night of Power is so special to Muslims is because it is the day Allah (SWT) shared his knowledge and teachings with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), giving us the gift of His perfect religion, Islam.

How is Laylat ul-Qadr/The Night of Power Celebrated?

This night continues to hold the greatest significance for Muslims around the world, with increased prayers to Allah (SWT) and recitals of the Holy Qur’an, as well as Laylat -ul-Qadr donations in the form of Zakat and Fitrana, amongst others. Muslims will recite the Night of Power Ramadan dua over the last 10 nights of the fast to replicate the special devotion that was displayed by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
