Seeking Laylatul Qadr- The Night of Power

Al hamdulilah we have successfully completed  two phases of Ramadhan and we have entered the third phase i.e. the last 10 days of Ramadan. Days are moving very fast. After a break of 2 years from fasting this year I didn’t feel much discomfort though the fasting period is long compared to India. Al hamdulilah for that!! Now entering into the third phase we will have to seek Laylatul Qadr in the last 10 days. So before going into this section we need the kids to understand why is it important?

What is the need to search Laylatul Qadr?

IBN  Umar (radiAllahu anhum) reported Allah’s Messenger (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying:
“Seek Laylatul Qadr in the last week (of Ramadan).”

(Saheeh Muslim, Book of Sawm,  #2618)

What should the kids know about Laylatul Qadr?

1. It’s the night the first words from Quran was revealed to Our prophet for all the Ummah!!
2 . Allah has given us this one night to do as much prayers as possible. Praying 1 night is equal to 1000 months. Isn’t it great?
3. Qadr means power so it means powerful night

These are things we can do on the last 10 days as we really don’t know when is the qadr?
1. Give something in charity last 10 days. Might be even 1$ so if its laylatul qadr it would be charity for 83 years. Al hamdulilah
2. Recite Quran daily so if its qadr you have recited for 83 years. Aren’t we blessed?
3. Please do dikhr every night in shaa Allah
4. Pray tahajudd every night in shaa Allah
5. Read this dua as frequent as possible

Do we have any signs for laylatul qadr?

Al hamdulilah if the specific day is known all would pray for that day and leave the rest. That’s the reason Allah has kept the special day in dark. He has taken our prophet to jannah for a tour during Laylatul Qadr but when sahabas asked when exactly is Laylatul Qadr it has been forgotten by our Prophet. But has revealed few signs
1. It will be a calm night neither cold nor hot. A normal calm night which will be a comfortable one al hamdulilah.
2. The Sun on the following morning arises without any ray. Sun will be very beautiful.

From amongst the signs of Laylatul-Qadar is that it is a calm night and the believer’s heart is delighted and at peace with it, and he becomes active in doing good actions, and the sun on the following morning rises clearly without any rays.

A hadith on signs of Laylatul-Qadr.

Allaah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) described the morning after Lailatul-Qadr, so that the Muslim may know which day it is.
From Ubayy, (RA), who said: that he (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “On the morning following Laylatul-Qadr the sun rises not having any rays, as if it were a brass dish, until it rises up.”
{Muslim, Abu Dawud, Tirmithi and Ibn Majah}
—————- ——————- ——————– ——————–
Abu Hurairah, (RA), said: “We were discussing Laylatul-Qadr in the presence of
Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) so he said: ‘Which of you remembers {the night} when the moon arose and was like half a plate?’.”
{Muslim}
