السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته،
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
Today’s night might be Laylatul Qadr so I hope we are all striving to attain its blessings!
DHIKR OF THE DAY
Train yourself this month to:-
((اللهم إنك عفو تحب العفو فاعفُ عني))
Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwan tuhibb ul-‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni
‘Aa’ishah reported: I asked: “O Messenger of Allah! If I realize Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree), what should I supplicate in it?” He (ﷺ) replied, “You should supplicate: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me).”[At-Tirmidhi: Book 9, Hadith 1195].
ACTION OF THE DAY
Train yourself this month to :-
Learn the signs of Laylatul Qadr:
A sound report from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) 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.
Zirr b. Hubaish reported: I heard from Ubayy b. Ka’b a statement made by ‘Abdullah b. Mas’ud in which he said: He who gets up for prayer (every night) during the year will hit upon Lailat-ul-Qadr. Ubayy said: By Allah, by Whom there is no god but He, that (Lailat-ul-Qadr) is in Ramadhan. (He swore without reservation:) By Allah, I know the night; it is the night on which the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) commanded us to pray. It is that which precedes the morning of twenty-seventh and its indication is that the sun rises bright on that day without rays. (Sahih Muslim)
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.
So, let’s try our level best to attain the most in this holy day where all previous sins are forgiven.
Abu Huraira narrated: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever establishes the prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards (not to show off) then all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Sahih al-Bukhari 35)
Baaraka Allah feekum.
