Laylatul Qadr, also known as Shab-e-Qadr, Night of Decree, Night of Measures, is an Islamic observance that marks the anniversary of the night Mohammad received the first verses of the Qu’ran.
Laylatul Qadr signifies the night when the first verses of the Quran were revealed to Prophet Mohammad. Muslims believe that on this night, the blessings and mercy of God are abundant. Some recite Quran entire night to seek God’s blessings and mercy. The Qur’an states that anyone who sacrifices sleep to worship Allah (SWT) will be rewarded especially, thus this is a common practice during the last ten days of Ramadan, in the hope of reaping the rewards of Laylatul Qadr.
On this night, for anything you do, for others or faith, is multiplied, and the rewards are greater.
In the Qur’an, it is said that “the night of al-Qadr is better than a thousand months” (Qur’an 97:3), and so for many these nights are the greatest opportunity for a Muslim to exercise their faith through good acts to benefit from this night’s endless rewards.
