We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power; And what will explain to thee what the night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand of Peace. This until the rise of morn!

In just five brief verses, the Qur’an reveals the purpose of the Night of Power – an amplification of our ibadat at the very summit of Ramadan. We submit to its power as we stay awake all night in prayer and supplication – every act magnified a thousandfold. On this night, we are surrounded by Allah’s angels on their errands of peace, and our jihad is to strive to join them.

Ramadan is a journey, the spiritual analog to the physical journey of the Hajj. In Hajj we travel physically to the Plain of Arafat on the Day of Arafat, and in Ramadan we travel spiritually to an elevation of spirit on the Night of Power. We have prepared for the spiritual pilgrimage accordingly. The journey is not over, but the remaining time is precious, and wanes with the moon.

Laylatul Qadr mubarak to everyone! Please do remember me in your precious dua tonight.
