Since tonight will be the 1st of the last ten days of Ramadan insha Allah, I thought I would post some reminders about Laylatul Qadr.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet, sal Allahu alayhi wa salaam, said, “Whosoever performs Qiyam during Laylat-ul-Qadr, with Faith and being hopeful of Allah’s reward, will have his former sins forgiven.”
Al-Bukhari and Muslim
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Approaching you is the month of Ramadan, a blessed month in which Allah the Exalted has made it an obligation upon you to fast; in it the gates of the heavens are opened, and in it the gates of Hellfire are closed, and in it the devils are chained. Allah has made a night in it that is better than a thousand months, so whoever is deprived of it is truly deprived.”
Aisha reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, would exert himself in worship during the last ten nights of Ramadan more so than any other time.
1195. `Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: I asked: “O Messenger of Allah! If I realize Laylat-ul-Qadr, what should I supplicate in it?” He, Sal Allahu alayhi wa salaam, 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).”
