All praise is due to Allaah, and may the peace and salutations of Allaah be upon his Messenger, his family and companion.

Certainly, the last 10 days of Ramadan are blessed. From their virtues, is that Laylatul Qadr is most likely to fall within them. It is the night that Allaah has emphasized its affair in his Book and the Prophet encouraged standing in prayer on it.

He said, “Whoever stands and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.”

Allaah said about it in the Quran

“The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months.” [Surat Al-Qadr 3]

Performing good deeds on this night is better than performing good deeds for a thousand months. This is for he whom Allaah makes successful.  The Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم said “Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward..” Meaning, faith in its virtues and hope in seeking its reward which has been promised for it.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم 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.”

Allaah has hidden this night in this month, however it is most correctly viewed that it would fall in the odd last 10 nights, on 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th. However, the more correctly according to the people of knowledge is it will fall on the 27th night of Ramadan. Nevertheless, whomever stands in prayer on these nights, while believing in its virtue and seeking its reward has obtain great goodness. Indeed Allaah grants it to whomsoever he wills.

As for the one who stands to pray on some nights and leaves other nights then he may not have attained Laylatul-Qadr because it may have fallen on a day that he abandoned praying.

This night has many virtues.

Firstly: It is the night which the Quran was revealed down. Allaah said, “Verily! We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr.” [Surat Al-Qadr 1]

Secondly: It is better than a thousand months.

Thirdly: It is the night that yearly actions and fates are decreed. Actions, fates and lifespans are decreed in the Preserved Tablets fifty thousand years before the creation of the heavens.

However that is a general decree, whereas on this night specific decrees are made. Allaah decrees what will happen in the year. This is why it is called ‘the Night of Decree’ Allaah said, “Therein (that night) is decreed every matter of ordainments.” [Surat Ad-Dukhān 4]

Fourthly: Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.”

Great virtues are gathered in this night. It is a blessed and virtuous night. It is a night of decree and its [true] value is only known by Allaah. This night recurs for us every Ramadan. Every Ramadan that arrives, it has a Laylatul-Qadr in it. This is from the blessing of Allaah. So what do you think about the one who Allaah has  blessed to attain Laylatul-Qadr every year? The one who Allaah has made successful to attain it every year! This is a great and generous reward.
