Night of power🌛

This night is so special for moslems all over the world..

Let’s learn about it…

Laylat al-Qadr

(from Arabic: لیلة القدر‎), variously rendered in English as the Night of Decree,[2]Night of Power,[3] Night of Value, Night of Destiny,[4] or Night of Measures, is an Islamic belief the night when the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the Islamic prophetMuhammad.[5] It is one of the nights of the last ten days of Ramadan. Muslims believe that on this night the blessings and mercy of God are abundant, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and that the annual decree is revealed to the angelswho also descend to earth, specially the Angel Gabriel, referred to as “the Spirit”, to perform every and any errand decreed by God. Islam holds that God Almighty alone answers our supplications and that He alone receives them and forgives humanity and gives them what they ask for and that on this particular night Muslims should actively seek God’s forgiveness and engage in various acts of worship.

Revelation to Prophet Muhammad
Some commentators believe that the Quran was revealed to Muhammad twice; the ‘immediate revelation’ happening on the Laylat al-Qadr and ‘gradual revelation’ across 23 years. The Quran uses the word Inzal (انزال) which justifies ‘the immediate revelation’, according to Allamah Tabatabai.[6]However some others believe that the revelation of Quran occurred in two phases, with the first phase being the revelation in its entirety on Laylat al-Qadr to the angel Gabriel (Jibril in Arabic) in the lowest heaven, and then the subsequent verse-by-verse revelation to Muhammad by Gabriel.[4] The revelation started in 610 CE at the Hira cave on Mount Nur in Mecca. The first Surah that was revealed was Sūrat al-ʿAlaq (in Arabic العلق).[citation needed] During the first revelation the first five verses of this Surah, or chapter, were revealed.[7]
Date
The specific date of Laylat al-Qadr is not mentioned in the Quran.[8][9]
Sunni Islam
In Islamic countries and Sunnicommunities all over the world, Laylat al-Qadr is found to be on the last ten nights of Ramadan, mostly in on one of the odd nights (21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th) whereby night precedes day. Many traditions insist particularly on the night before the 27th of Ramadan.[10][11][12]

Religious importance
The night is not comparable to any others in view of Muslims[14] and according to a tradition, the blessings due to the acts of worship during this night can’t be equaled even by worshipping throughout an entire lifetime. The reward of acts of worship done in this one single night is more than the reward of around 83 years (1000 months) of worship.[5] Laylat al-Qadr is referenced in the Quran:[4][14]
  1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
  2. And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is?
  3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
  4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand:
  5. Peace!… This until the rise of dawn!
    — Surah 97 (Al-Qadr), āyāt 1–5[22]
The verses above regard the night as better than one thousand months.[14] The whole month of Ramadan is a period of spiritual training wherein believers devote much of their time to fasting, praying, reciting the Quran, engaging in the remembrance of God(dhikr) and giving charity.[citation needed] However, because of the revealed importance of this night, Muslims strive [give more effort] harder in the last ten days of Ramadan since the Laylat al-Qadr could be one of the odd-numbered days in these last ten (the first, third, fifth, seventh or ninth). Normally, some Muslims from each community perform iʿtikāf in the mosque: they remain in the mosque for the last ten days of the month for prayers and recitation.[4]Women also observe i’tikaf. They remain in prayer and meditation mostly, although they are allowed to do the minimum domestic work to run the family. When Muhammed observed i’tikaf in a tent, he saw a few tents around his. His wives joined him by pitching tents.[citation needed]

  1. SMiLes to ya Sohair Speaking of Beautiful and Verily Powerful Moons
    As We may come to view them as Holy and Sacred Full of Meaning
    And Purpose For Humans to Effect Results with all of what
    Drives Us Within as the Bio-Electrical-Chemical
    Reactions Like the Stars Do Within the Emotions
    And SensesThat Drive Us to Action And Consequence
    of Change.. Anyway Today Saturday is the
    May Flower Blue Full Moon Night the Last
    Until Next Decade too as this Kind of Blue
    Moon that is Seasonal Goes instead of
    Two Full Moons in a Month With Four
    Full Moons in a Season and 13 Full
    Moons for the Entire Year too anyway
    We Humans have the Incredible
    Potential Really to Co-Create
    Life where all becomes
    Powerful Holy and
    Sacred Meaning
    And Purpose
    Force With
    Agape Feelings
    of Pure Positive Love
    For all to Give and Share
    Within today has Many Holy
    And Sacred Meanings and Purposes
    Beyond this Full Moon Muse alone now
    As Many as i will Create Hand and Hand
    with God as All that is to be more in Holy
    And Sacred Full Of Meaning and Purpose Life
    Ways but Truly what the Muslims Folks do via Ramadan
    Still is Holy and Sacred Meaning and Purpose that most all
    Do Share as Tradition in these Countries Whole During these
    Days Now.. That is more to be said than Countries that bind
    with Little Holy and Sacred Meaning and Purpose Hardly at all
    where one may Go To Church to Hear About Love and Answer
    With Fear
    And Hate
    then for the
    Rest of the
    Week Long
    Until Love is
    only Lip Service
    Without a Kiss that
    is Real the Next Hour
    of Sunday Services if anyone
    even does that at all for when Humans
    Lose their Holy and Sacred Meanings and Purposes
    of Life they disintegrate as a Society if they are not
    Sharing for Bonding And Biding Ways of Life Together
    Voila so Trump is President and things fall apart when
    Folks no longer hold Life now as Sacred and Holy Full of
    Meaning and Purpose there are pockets to do this but i am
    not going to wait for Society to Straighten up as Love in Holy
    and Scared Ways of Finding Meaning and Purpose in All the light
    thru Dark.. so true ‘those’ are only Parts of what i see as Dark Muse
    this way too.. for i refuse to fear and hate as that only takes me away
    from God
    as Love
    but sure
    i have
    my Moments
    True too for this
    Humanity this Nature
    From Dark thru Light is
    Impossible to Escape for a
    Galvanized Human In and
    as Love from Dark thru Light
    Where the Moon is as Bright as the Sun
    Except For Rays still Escaping NoW as LoVE..:)

      1. Love Spreading Everywhere is So Beautiful Sohair..
        i am sad when Rules become more important than Love..
        True.. Rules are important too.. been visiting Christians attempting
        to Explain to them that Love is both most Important and the only Rule
        of their Religion
        but i just
        can’t
        seem to
        get through
        rarely welcome
        in their Lives now
        as it has also been
        overall in my Life for my
        Mother Taught Love not always
        Unconditional but the Unconditional
        ParT Was Born as my Soul and From Before
        that my friend the Fire of Eternal Love Just
        Another Phrase For God Willing Breaking apart
        to bring Love and the Opportunity to Love Beyond
        Infinity More Together Once again and the Dance and
        Song goes on into Eternity now and Beyond at least
        that is
        what
        i feel
        and sense
        my Friend
        there is a store
        in the Mall Complex
        in my Metro Area called
        ‘World Market Place’.. Moving
        out the Doors there are Pictures
        of People in Different Cultures Around
        the World it is true in this Life if it was not
        for the Internet and a Handful of Friends mostly
        Outside of where i live so far away across the Ocean
        Blue and other Seas and Deserts and Even Snowy Mountains
        too.. i would have met so few people in life who took any time
        at all to really get to know me and allow me to know and feel and
        sense more about them.. true though this was after i retired before that
        i did have Community at least at Work and Mostly through School too.. The
        Internet is a Blessing to people now who longer fit the Mold of their Community
        At Hand
        And People
        Are always
        A Blessing
        Worth understanding
        differences and the connections
        of Love that are very similar and same
        to all of us when connecting this way
        the Bond that Lasts forever now JusT Love is all that is..:)
