For Newbies, this segment is where we bring you some Ramadan messages, quotes and words to ponder over.
“Surely, we have revealed to you the Grand Night, and what will make you comprehend what the Grand Night is? The Grand Night is better than a thousand months. The Angels and the Spirit descend in it by the permission of their Lord for every affair. Peace! It is till the break of the morning.”
The Holy Night of Laylat-ul-Qadr (also known as the Night of Power, Night of Destiny, Night of Decree) is a single night worth a thousand months of reward in Islam. Any good acts and deeds completed on this single night are the equivalent to if you had performed that one act for a thousand months (83 years).
It is known to be the night that the revelation of the Holy Qur’an was sent down to our Prophet Muhammed PBUH as guidance for all mankind. It is said that during this night our destiny is written for the coming year – and who knows what is written for us and whether we will be blessed with another Ramadan again? Therefore, it is important to make the most of such blessed occasions and reap as much reward as we can for our Hereafter.
The Night of Power falls within the final ten nights of the Holy month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan, amongst many great acts, consists of the act of fasting, which forms one of the five obligatory pillars of Islam for Muslims across the world.
