Dhikr of the day
ﻻ حول ولا قوة إلا بالله
La haula wala Quwata illa billah
“There is no might nor power except with Allah.”
اللهم إنك عفو تحب العفو فاعفعني
And this dua which we all know but the following authentic narration compels me to reemphasize it again.
It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “If I know what night is Laylat al-Qadar, what should I say during it?” He said: “Say: Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwan tuhibb ul-‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni (O Allaah, You are forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me).”
Action of the day
Tonight is one of the special nights when there is a chance of it being Laylatul Qadr! Subhaana Allah!
Let us not miss this golden opportunity!
For today get up for Tahajjud. If you are in a state when you cannot pray, it does not matter. You can still wake up and read the duas. Allah hears. Allah knows. So don’t be disappointed.
For those able to pray, get up and pray the last third of the night (you can calculate and find the exact time in your area).
Some of the important information regarding this issue includes:
“The first and last third of the night differ according to the season. If the night is nine hours long then the time of descent begins at the onset of the seventh hour, until dawn comes. If the night is twelve hours long then the last third begins at the beginning of the ninth hour until dawn comes, and so on, depending on how long or short the night is in each place. And Allaah is the Source of strength. ” From islamqa.info
By the beginning of night it means maghrib time.
In a nutshell, do the following:
1. End of Maghrib time is at 6.00 p.m (note: it’s end of Maghrib time and not start of Maghrib time)
2. Start of Fajr time is at 6.00 a.m
3. Subtract the two above and find the difference of hours in between Maghrib and Fajr.
In this example: it’s a difference of 12 hrs so take 12÷3=4hrs
start adding 4hrs from Maghrib time
10 p.m +4 hours=2 a.m (beginning of last third of the night) and it is the beginning of the Ninth hour of the night.
And Allah knows best regarding the exact time.
What to do at that time:
Read duas, recite the Qur’an, pray Salatul Tahajjud, remember Allah, ask Allah for everything and cry out to Him.
And trust me if you really brought it all out, then by Allah’s will, after that prayer you will be a changed and stress-free person.
Learn the signs of Laylatul Qadr :
A sound report from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) indicates that the sign of Laylat al-Qadr is that the sun rises on the following morning with no visible rays. Ubayy ibn Ka’b used to swear that it was the night of the twenty-seventh, citing this sign as evidence. The more correct view is that it moves through all the last ten nights, but it is most likely to be one of the odd-numbered nights, and the night of the twenty-seventh is the most likely among the odd-numbered nights. (https://islamqa.info/en/21905)
Let’s not miss this opportunity where all our previous sins are forgiven and according to another narration “previous and future sins”. And Allah knows best.
May Allah make us among those who will witness this night and may He accept our deeds and forgive our previous and future sins and may Allah give us a good ending.
Ameen ya Rab.
