Jabir ibn Samurah relates that after Allahs Messeger Saws would perform Fajr, the used to remain seated in the place of prayer until the Sun had fully risen (Muslim)


The Messenger of Allah Saws said :


“Whoever offers Fajr in congregation & remains seated, engaging in the remembrance of Allah until the Sun has risen, & then offers 2 units of prayer, he will have a reward equal to that of performing HAJJ and Umrah.”


The Messenger of Allah swt said, “Complete, complete, complete. (ie complete reward).




Narrated ‘Aisha (Radi Allah Anhu) :


With the start of the last ten days of Ramazan, Allah’s Messenger (sal-allahu- alleihi-wasallam ) used to tighten his waist-belt (i.e. hard work) and used to offer Salat (Prayer) all the night, and used to keep his family awake for the Salat (prayers).
[Sahih Muslim : Book 6 “Kitab Al-Sawm”, Number 2632]


Brothers and sisters, as the mother of all believers, Aisha (raziALLAHu anha) have narrated that:
“With the start of the last 10 days of Ramadan, the Prophet used to tighten his waist belt and used to pray all the night, and used to keep his family awake for the prayers.”

The reason for being that this night is too great and majestic as ALLAH (SWT) HAS Stated it in Quran that: [097:003] ” The Night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months” (i.e. worshipping Allâh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).

Hence, we should atleast search it in odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadhan, if we cannot search it on all the nights consecutively.

We pray to Allah All Mighty Most Merciful to bless us this Ramadan by making us witness the Laylatul-Qadr and to get all it’s rewards.

Recommended Dua of This night: It is recommended to pray, read Quran with understanding and reflecting on each verses, and supplicate a lot during this night, it is reported from our mother ‘Aishah radhiya Allahu `anha, that she said: “O Messenger of Allah! What if I knew which night Lailatul-Qadr was, then what should I say in it?” He (s) said.- “Say.-

(Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee.)

“O Allaah You are The One Who pardons greatly, and loves to pardon, so pardon me.”. [at-Tirmithi and Ibn Majah with a Sahih Isnad]

Final Take:


The Night of Al-Qadr is not specified to one fixed night throughout all the years. Rather, it constantly changes. So one year it could occur on the twenty-seventh night for example and on another year it could occur on the twenty-fifth night, according to Allah’s Will and Wisdom.


What directs us to this is the Prophet’s :saw: saying: “Look for it (i.e. the Night of Al-Qadr) when there remain nine nights, when there remains seven nights, or when there remains five nights (i.e. 21st, 23 rd, 25th, 27th and 29th).”


[This is taken from the book of Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaimin in his book Majaalis Shahr Ramadan (pg.106 -107). Reported by Muslim and others and it is referenced in Sahih Abu Dawud (1247)]

According to a authentic ahadeeth, the following signs are evident.

1. The sun rises early in the morning without rays.

2. Rain may fall either during the night or during the day of that night.

3. During night the sky will be lightly foggy.

4. The sky will be slightly lighted without reflections and without rays and moon seems like half plate.

5. Night will be very comforting and soothing with no cause of trouble from either high or low temperatures.

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (Radhiallāhu ‘anhu):

When the Prophet (Sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam) returned after performing his hajj, he asked Umm Sinan Al-Ansari, “What did forbid you to perform hajj?” She replied, “Father of so-and-so (i.e. her husband) had two camels and he performed hajj on one of them, and the second is used for the irrigation of our land.”

Prophet of Allah (Sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam) said (to her), “Perform umrah in the month of ramadan, (as it is equivalent to hajj or hajj with me (in reward).”

[ Sahih Bukhari - Book 29, Hadith 86 ]

Rasul Allah (saws) said, “If anyone continually asks forgiveness, Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress, relief from anxiety, and will provide for him from where he never realized.”

[Abu Dawood, Hadith 599]

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it.

It will be said, ‘Where are those who used to observe fasts?’ They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 1896, Book 30, Hadith 6


Narrated by Abu Huraira (Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: Verily Allah likes three things for you and He disapproves three things for you. He is pleased with you that you worship Him and associate not anything with Him, that you hold fast the rope of Allah, and be not scattered; and He disapproves for you irrelevant talk, persistent questioning and the wasting of wealth.

Sahih Muslim Number 4255
