night of power.

"We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. 
Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's permission, on every errand:  
Peace! This until the rise of morn.
[Al-Qadr; 1-5]

 What one does while seeking out Laylatul Qadr will vary from person to person. Praying the Isha prayer, the night prayer, and the Fajr prayer, the prayer at dawn, in congregation is important as is every minute in between.

   Some will then stand for hours in ritual prayer. Others will read or listen to the Quran being recited. Some will sit with their hands raised to the skies with tears falling from their eyes as their hearts tremble out of devotion. 


  This year during Ramadhan, while peoples are seeking out for Laylatul Qadr here, others are seeking for syaheed there. Both are granted to jannah. Only if they found it.

  Rabbi yassir wala tu'assir rabbi tammim bi khair.
