Blessed Days and Times in Islam (II)


The Last Ten Days of Ramadan and Laylat Al-Qadr (The Night of Power) (II)

Panelists: Elton Karaj; Ali Zaimi

Topic: The panelists elaborated on the Night of Power is the night that the first revelation of the Qur'an was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad. Muslims are instructed to “seek” the Night of Power during the last ten days of Ramadan. Muslims worldwide spend the last ten nights of Ramadan in solid devotion, retreating to the mosque to read Qur'an (i'tikaf), reciting special supplications (du'a), and reflecting on the meaning of Allah's message to us. It is believed to be a time of intense spirituality, when the believers are surrounded by angels, the gates of heaven are open, and God's blessings and mercy are abundant.
