LAILAT-UL-QADR, NIGHT BETTER THAN THOUSAND MONTHS

Shab E Qadar

Lailat-ul-Qadr is described as the night of power, the night of pardon, which is to agree the sins on which a single act done is better than the deeds done in one thousand month such as reciting the Holy Quran about which the Holy book says, verse 97:3 of HolyQuran:

The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to do ibadah (worship) on this night with more loyalty than rest of the months as ALLAH’S Messenger used to exert himself in dedication during the last 10 nights to a greater extent than any other time.

The question looms that what a Muslim must do particularly on this night therefore this article is composed to let the Muslims know about what are the rituals every Muslim must opt and do to search for the mercy and to utilize this night in a appropriate manner.

  1. Observe AItekaf:

We take break from nearly everything in our life to enjoy the real essence of life apart from frantic routine. This Ramadan takes a break for ALLAH Almighty by observing Aitekaf to do maximum dua (supplication) in order to focus on veneration and do ibadah. If this is not feasible then at least take a two days or days off to focus on your ibadah and this will make it easier to stay awake, do Tahajjud namaz, nawafils and recitation of Holy Quran with ease.

  1. Quran Recitation:

This is the night, which is said to be the night when Holy Quran was sent from Loh-eMehfooz on Earth therefore the most suggested deed is to recite Holy Quran as much as you can by understanding the lesson and message written within.

Try to complete the whole Holy Quran if you can so that the return you get in reward is a maximum one.

      3.  Reflect the Meanings of Holy Quran:

Holy Quran is a complete guidance for al and tells each and everything that a person wants to know about. Open the Holy Quran and see what is not there from a small matter to a major one, it imparts direction and also asks us to follow its footsteps because on the occasion of Last Hajj (Jummat ul Widah) Prophet (PBUH) clearly said that Sunnah and this book Holy Quran is the source of forgiveness for you in this world and also hereafter.

      4. Make Up for Your gunah (sins):

All the previous sins will be wiped out for the one who will ask pardon and the one who will evaluate his imaan (faith) in

Lailat-ul-Qadar.

      5. Offer Taraweeh:

Taraweeh is one of the aspects of Holy Ramadan to honour this Holy month of Ramadan. It is a voluntary namaz, it is one of the suggested deeds of Holy Ramadan.

During the Tawaaf (circumambulation) it is essential for a man to do two things

Tawaaf

  1. Al-ldhtebaa’ from the beginning of Tawaaf (circumambulation) tills the end. Al-ldhtebaa’ means placing the middle of a person’s Rida under his right arm and ends of it over his left shoulder.

When he is done with performing Tawaaf (circumambulation), he may return his Rida to its original position because the time for Idhtebaa’ is just during Tawaaf (circumambulation).

  1. Al-Raml during the initial three circuits. Al-Raml means speeding up person’s speed or pace with small steps. A pilgrim must walk at a normal speed during his last 4 circuits.

When he completes seven rounds or circuits of Tawaaf (circumambulation), he approaches Maqam-e-Ibrahim (station of ibrahim) and recites.

Verse 2:125 of Holy Quran

And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], “Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer].

Pilgrims prays two short Rakats nafil namaz, as near as conveniently possible, behind the Maqam-e-Ibrahim. When pilgrim completes the two Rakats namaz he or she must return to the Hajr-e-Aswad (Black Stone) kiss it or touch it, if convenient. Then pilgrim performs Saaee

Pilgrim ascends As-Safaa until he or she is able to see the Holy Kaabah. Facing the Holy Kaabah and raising his hands, pilgrim praises ALLAH Almighty and makes any supplications (dua).

He descends As-Safaa and heads for mountain Al-Marwah at a normal speed until he reaches to the green marker. He should then run speedy until the next green marker. He continues toward Marwah at a normal speed. When he reaches it, he ascends it, faces the direction or Qibla, raises hands and repeats what said on Safaa.

Verse 2:158 of Holy Quran

Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of ALLAH. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs ‘umrah – there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good – then indeed, ALLAH is appreciative and Knowing

Pilgrim continues this process until he or she completes seven laps.

During Saaee pilgrim may recite what he or she wills of supplications (dua), recitation of Holy Quran, and mentioning ALLAH Almighty. In completion of Saaee men completely shaves his head hairs, whereas women just clips her head hair the length of a finger tip.With that, Umrah is completed and now pilgrim is free from to the restrictions of Ihraam and to dress in other clothing, applies perfume etc.
