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?

Laylat ul-Qadr is the night that the 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.

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 dua over the last 10 nights of Ramadan to replicate the special devotion that was displayed by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

When is Laylat ul-Qadr/The Night of Power 2021?

Assuming the month of Ramadan begins as expected on the evening of Monday 12 April, the 27th night will fall on Saturday 8 May – but this could change depending on the sighting of the new moon. As Laylat ul-Qadr is thought by some to fall on any of the odd-numbered nights in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, this means the Night of Power could fall on any of:

  • Sunday 2 May (21st night)
  • Tuesday 4 May (23rd night)
  • Thursday 6 May (25th night)
  • Saturday 8 May (27th night)
  • Monday 10 May (29th night)

How Long is Laylat ul-Qadr?

Laylat ul-Qadr is one single night, although many Muslims choose to practice increased prayers and Qur’an recitals, as well as spreading their charity donations across the last 10 nights to ensure they benefit from the multiplied rewards and blessings that come with this sacred night.
