Laylat al-Qadr is the best night:
The Islamic scholars have agreed that Ramadan is the best of the months, then they have also agreed that the last ten days of Ramadan are the best in it and the greatest of its nights is Laylat al-Qadr, so it is the best of the ten and indeed the best night in existence. Laylat al-Qadr is better than a thousand months.
The Prophet (PBUH) in the month of Ramadan:
Allah Almighty has singled out the last ten days of Ramadan with benefits that are not found in others. Allah’s Messenger used to exert himself in devotion during the last ten nights to a greater extent than at any other time. The prophet (PBUH) would pray all night and he can do diversity between all kinds of worship, such as prayer, remembrance, and recitation of the Quran.
‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said:
With the start of the last ten days of Ramadan, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) would pray all night and would keep his family awake for the prayers. He tied his lower garment (i.e., avoided sleeping with his wives) and devoted himself entirely to prayer and supplication.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
I`tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan:
the Prophet (PBUH) used to practice I`tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan.
The Prophet (PBUH) enjoined staying up and praying on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of rewarding. Whoever performs Qiyam during Lailat-al-Qadr (Night of Decree&Glory) will have his former sins forgiven with faith and hope of Allah’s reward.
Anas b. Malik told of Allah’s messenger saying when Ramadan began, “This month has come to you, and it contains a night which is better than a thousand months. He who is deprived of it is deprived of all good, but only those who are denied prosperity are deprived of it.” Ibn Majah transmitted it.
In which prayers are answered and hope is fulfilled, a night of peace, for Allah wants for the world peace and security, the safety of hearts and souls, and good relations between people.
Al-Lawh al-Mahfooz (the Preserved Tablet):
Allah Almighty has hidden the knowledge of the specifics of that day from the servants so that they may strive in worship, so it appears that he who was serious in seeking it is keen on it to reach it. On Laylat al Qadr,
Allah transfers from Al-Lawh al Mahfooz to the angels what He has decreed for the coming year. Al-Lawh al-Mahfooz (the Preserved Tablet) means the place where the decrees of Allah are kept.
Deaths, provision, poverty and wealth, good yields and drought, health and sickness, wars, earthquakes, and everything else that will occur in the coming year, no matter what it is, have all been decreed by Him.
The Prophet (PBUH) seeks Laylat al-Qadr on the twenty-first, twenty-third, twenty-fifth, twenty-seventh, or the last night.
It indicates that the sun rises bright on that day without rays. But not seeing it does not mean that one will not gain its reward if one spends that night in prayer out of faith and the hope of reward. One of the best dua’ that may be recited on Laylat al-Qadr is that which the Prophet (PBUH) taught to ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) “(O Allah, you are forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me).”
The Muslim should strive his hardest to do acts of obedience and worship in Ramadan, and more so in the last ten days. This is the teaching of the Prophet (PBUH). The Messenger of Allah used to strive hard in worship during the last ten days of Ramadan as he never did at any other time, praying, reading the Qur’an, and making dua’.
