The Powerful Night of Ramadan

We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: And what will explain to you 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: Peace!...This until the rise of morn! (97:1-5)

The Night of Power in His infinite wisdom is encouraged to be searched during the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan. Since over fourteen centuries Muslims are striving diligently to benefit greatly from it. A rare trade indeed - pure profit and thousand times more!

Interestingly we have embraced the night for its mathematical magic but seemingly misplaced the very essence of the night. In fact, it was just another dark night. But it became the Night of Power because of what was revealed in the darkness. It is now known to us, a night better than a thousand months. The dark night is illuminating the world and the Quran is guiding the humanity ever since.

The Night of Power is celebrated powerfully. Masajid and communities celebrate the night by staying up all night, listening to lectures, reading Quran, etc. What seems to be missing though is to reflect on the Divine Words and to act upon it. Unless that is done, the real power will not be received from the Night of Power.

Ramadan visits us every year and offers us a reason to reflect on all aspect of our lives. The objects of our wants and fears far surpass the limits of human genius, energy, and mortal life. The sum of all that we need and desire .. spiritual or material, essential or superfluous .. simply exceeds our ability to attain it. What, then, is one to do? The believer turns to his or her Creator in prayer. The response is natural. Whether moved by need or hope, or faced with misfortune or danger, people instinctively call upon God.  Prayer is at the center of our very being and the marrow of the Muslim way of life. For many in the English speaking world, however, this face of Islam is virtually unknown.

Dua - Supplication - Prayer is Muslim's hope for everything at all times. Let us submit ourselves and plead and plead and plead ... as He alone can relieve us of our anxieties and sufferings.

(the following is an excerpt from Dua Kumayl that was often recited by Imam Ali (may Allah be pleased with him))

by Thy majesty against which nothing can stand up
by Thy grandeur which prevails upon all things
by Thy authority which is exercised over all things
by Thy knowledge which pervades all things

O Allah! Forgive us of sins that would hinder our supplications
O Allah! Forgive us of sins that would suppress hope
O Allah! Forgive all sins that we have committed and every error that we have erred
O Allah! Accept our apologies and have pity on our intense sufferings and set us free from my heavy fetters (of evil deeds)
O Allah! You are aware of my weakness to bear even a minor affliction of this world and its consequence and adversity affecting the denizen of this earth, although such afflictions are momentary, short-lived and transient
How then can I bear the retributions and the punishments of the Hereafter which are enormous and of intensive sufferings, of prolonged period and perpetual duration, and which shall never be alleviated for those who deserve the same as those retributions will be the result of Your wrath; and Your punishment which neither the heavens nor the earth can withstand and bear!
My Lord! How can I, a weak, insignificant, humble, poor and destitute creature of Yours be able to bear them?
O' my God! My Lord! My King! And Master! Which of the matters shall I complain to You and for which of them shall I bewail and weep?
Shall I bewail for the pains and pangs of the punishment and their intensity or for the length of sufferings and their duration?

Therefore (my Lord!) If You will subject me to the penalties (of hell) in company of Your enemies and cast me with those who merited my punishments and tear me apart from Your friends and those who will be near to You, then my God, my Lord and my Master, though I may patiently bear Your punishments, how can I calmly accept being kept away from You?

I reckon that though I may patiently endure the scorching fire of the hell, yet how can I resign myself to the denial of Your pity and clemency? How can I remain in the fire while I have hopes of Your forgiveness?

So, my Lord! I look earnestly towards You and towards You, my Lord!

I have stretched forth my hands therefore, by Your honor, respond to my supplication and let me attain my prayers and, by Your bounty, frustrate not my hopes and protect me from the evils of my enemies and O' My Lord! have mercy on me whose only asset is hope and whose only weapon is lamentation.

Ameen ... Ya Rabb ... Ameen ... Ameen ...

    Allahumma Innaka Afuwun tuhibbu afuwa faafu anni When one happens to see Lailatul Qadr this is the Dua which the Prophet recommended to Aisha (RA)and to the Ummah in general.Oh Allah You are Forgiving and you love forgiveness so forgive. May Allah enable us to view Lailatul Qadr at least once in our life time so we can attain the reward of that 83 years 4 months ibadah Amen.

    Its really great that such messages are given wherein we can be prepared for our final journey by asking forgiveness on Lailathul Qadr as these facts which will save from the Fire of Hell

  18. irfan-Ahmed from Pakistan

    Salaam alekum!

    Holy Land? A land can be HOly only if Allah wills so. If Allah sent Holy Quran to us in a Holy night of Laila tul Qadr than obviously a Holy land must have a link too.

    Without naming any religion, a Holy land must fit the criterea of a direct link to the Holiness of any religion, so a Holy land must be a Land claimed in name of a religion and named so after that link is established.

    First country ever to be created on the face of the world in name of a religion happened in 14th August,1947. The country was named Holy-PAK + Land-istan. What many forget is that it was a Holy incident in ISlam becuase it happened on the 27th of Ramadhan night, yet we all cling to the reminder of Israel as the known Holy Land of our religious conflicts, mind u, u are not looking in the right direction. Rasool Allah said that Al-Mehdi will come from east. Kurasaan is a place in East of Arab world divided among two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan. One of these coutries show links to divine signs and Prophecies.

    I think it is high time we take a good look at the measures we have taken to thwart an open crusade but in bits and pieces by west, same bits and Peices it created when it colonised after demise of Khilafat, but less than 50 years and a Holy land appeared in living body of Khilafat, a nation one under Islam otherwise most divided and diverse if secular. Pakistan comprsises of five big and many small nations and tribes which have held hold to the lands there for centuries as their home. ISlam chose to dwell here in our times when Arabia was too busy counting wealth and depositing it in Jewish Banks.

    In Battle of Badr sticks were used as swords, but HUge Arab world is unable to use oil in not non Arab defense but their own in Palestine and Iraq.

    But if the Arab world becomes more awake and realise that they were a shame before Islam when they were Arabs only, but ISlam snatched away this tribal or racist identity and named them Muslims only

  19. Marieme Diop from Senegal

    Salam dear brothers and sisters,

    Ramadan Mubarak to all and may Allah forgive us, accept our prayers and our fasting, and may He let us live longer and longer, so we can continue to worship Him and ask for more blessings and be welcomed in His greatest Heaven....ALLAHOU AKBAR!!!! LAA ILAHA ILLALAH!!!!!

    Wa Salam....

  20. JoAnn Enriquez from USA

    This is a very beautiful sharing. It is momentous in this holy time amidst all the evil that surround humanity.

  21. Inty from United Kingdom

    Aslam w Alaikum,

    There is an old catholic saying, "The nearer the pulpit, the bigger the sinner."

    We must pray for peace. pray for salvation. Pray for an end to our humiliation in all corners of the world.

    But whilst praying it must be backed up by actions. Actions that will help end the sufferings of the muslims in the world.

    An astonishing fact about the muslim world is that 800 million of the 1.3 billion muslims in the world cannot read or write. 61% of the muslims in the world are illiterate! While the first word revealed to Mohammed (PBUH) was "Iqra" or recite, read.

    Religious education must be backed up by scientific education. The successes of the early muslim empires were due to education. The Islamic world was the centre of academic excellence.

    Susbstance over form is a key concept which must be adhered to when trying to understand Islamic teachings. For too long we have allowed the Mullah (Backed up by religious knowledge alone) to dictate the terms. Their majority audience (61%) are the illiterate masses who do not have the capability to think critically and question the substance of their teachings.

    Maybe thats what the local, national and internation Mullah wants. He may prefer the status quo so that he goes unchallenged in his distortions of the truth.

    Religious piety and religious teachings are compulsory for an understanding of the devine message. But scientific, academic education allows one to critically think and appraise. As a universal and true message, Islam has nothing to fear from scientific appraisal, but the Mullah has a lot to fear.

    Education is the key to success, salvation, survival, and poverty alleviation.

  22. Asma from UK

    Asalamwalaikum Wa Rahmutallahi Wa Barakatahu

    Jazakhallah khair for an excellent dua. Inshallah, may Allah (SWT) guide us and Grant us the strength to become better muslims, Inshallah.

  23. Neelam Ahmad from usa

    Thankyou to the writer for reminding me of something which I didnot forgot but was not thinking of all the time as I should have been I sometimes think that by performing the haqooq ul abad I am doing my job but how can I forgive that

    I have to keep on asking for his mercy and guidenc e and forgiveness as all the voluntearly and involuntearly sins that I perform in the every day life ...can only ask for his forgiveness

    and thats all...and try my best.

    Allah Mian Jee you know every thing and you also know that how helpless we are in front of all the attractions and false images of this life and how easily we can get distracted and start thinking that we are capable of doing things that we are actually not capable of Its only and only Allah who makes us capable and can take away that whenever he wants so we should always be thankfull to him for whatever he has given us and should always be asking for his mercy....

    Ameen sum ameen

  27. Alsir Hassan Fadl from Sudan

    It is inspiring to browes through your pages in this holy month of Ramadan.Please try as possible as you can to do what is in your ability to bring the moslems togther, and let every muslim know since be beleives in the oneness od alla and that Mohammed is his prophet and messenger, any thing else is a secondry disagreement that should rise to level of making us enemies.

  28. Sharifa Howard from U.S.A.

    The comment in paragraph 4 line 11 is not true. English speaking Muslims are aware that prayer is at the very center of our being and do embrace prayer with sincerity and humility, the number is

    greater than less. We also understand all the articles of faith. English speaking Muslims understand that Islam is our deen (way of life. I pray a correction will be made in the otherwise beautiful article for Allah knows and ever watches. As Salaam Alaikum

  29. Sharifa from U.S.A.

  42. Khalid Mehmood from Pakistan

    Dear Sirs,

    Thank you for sent me all this material, but I have nothing except conditional respose and fear.

    The one thing regarding religion I feel strongly is conditioning and the fear and I know where there is fear there is no religion, no God, and finally no love, I have no insight to solve this problem of fear. so how I comment, I do not know.

  75. Nasr A. Ismail from United States

    I found your explanation of the Night of Power very thought provoking. I personally never looked at the Night of Power in the literal sense, in that supplication given up on that night will bear greater weight and accomadation before Allah. It would seem that if that was the case, famine, war and corruption we would not exist today.

    Accordingly, I reconciled it with more escoteric or subjacent meaning. My resolution concluded that the night alludes to the darkeness of ignorance and the power alludes to the divine revelation or knowledge recived by the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)when the Divine Angle Gabriel accosted him. Comparativly speaking this knowledge is greater than one thousand month because of it inherent benefits to humandkind. The angle and spirit alludes to The Holy Angel Gabriel. Moreover, the the morning alludes to the disspelling of the ignorance in favor of light - that moral, intellectual and sprititual light one gains by inculcating and excercising the divine knowledge revealed to the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH).

    I've never been inclinded to take that Surah literally. To take it literaly is to miss its true mening and significance. The Muslim should not stay in solitiude in the Masjid praying and hoping all his prays will be answered, as a literal interperatation will render such actions. The Muslim should view and learn the Surah significance in its true light. This view imparts a more consistent lesson of the Holy Qu'ran. And that is to be steadfast in pray, not reserve your suplications to the last ten day of the Ramadan. And to be receptive to the divine light of Allah as revealed to the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). If one where to do these things the night or darkness of ignorance will dissapate and the blessings recieved will be greater than a thousand months of mundane life.

    When I read the article I am responding to, I somewhat got that meaning from the article. However,I thought I might add my comments to further enrich

When a supplication moves a beliver the way this supplication has, it must be a blessing from our One and Only Creator.

  100. mujahid yusuf from north america

    al hamdullillah,by the grace of allah i would agree that many times it seems that there aren't sufficient words to bewail before our Rabb in need of mercy, reform and the attainment of our lawful aspirations. At times it seems that only our hands open outstretched to our Rabb, simply besseching mercy;Ya Rabbi!...while knowing He knows the contents of our hearts in perfect order with the power and grace alone to declare,"Be". Aside from this only the supplications of our rasool and our pious elders seem to give form and make sense of the hidden conditions of our lives in need of prayer. Glory be to Allah and Blessings upon our Rasool, his family and companions, and all of our pious elders until yaumul qiyaam.

  101. akram abdullah ali from franklin

    peace and blessing to you all praise is for allah may allah bless you during this mounth peace be un to you.

  102. Niiiicholas J. Evancik from U.S.

    One religion beat the Pope to the punch about hell. The Baha'i faith, as being a state of mind, has had the same definition of hell, even beyond death, of hell being the state of being separated from the joy of awareness of God. Hell is a state of mind and of spirit, in which no joy, peace or rest can be found, only interal lamentation, that will be even more keenly felt after the soul moves onto the next stage of its exixstance. This suffering is much like the purgatory of the Catholic faith and even after this life, the spirit can grow and be purged and the soul evolve towards the eventusl sttate in which knowleged oof God and his plan for the universe is all that is needed to be happy.

  103. Abdullah qalb salim from u s a

    very great. may Allah protect us from the satans,evils,temptations of this life and from those that have been led astray. Allah is the only Way to look for protection. May Allah protect the beleivers from the unbeleivers.

  106. husein q campwala from USA

    Ramadhan Kareem Mubarak

    These have been a trying times for all

    muslims of the world.

    Your printing of the Doa'a E Kumayal is timely.

    We have to renew our beliefs that Rasullah

    s.a.w. brought to the Universe the Right Path

    to human salvation and without imposing our

    beliefs on others we have to work on our own

    emancipation and prat Allah subhanahu gives

    taufiq for others around us to find the same

    shiratul mustaqim.

    May Allah t'ala shower us with his Fazil

    Kareaamat on these blessed day and may

    there be Peace and Prosperity in the World.


  107. Ahmed from United States of America

    Jazak Allah for the dua. Especially at this time of tests and trials, it is a blessing to me.

  109. Brian D. Lawlor from Canada

    whoes only weapon is lamentation and suffering hell. Well for the benefit to all peoples who are all religions the current Pope at the Vatican stated in 1999 that " hell does not exist and that it was a conditioning of mind". Many would think Osama Bin Laden should be going to hell but the love from God to Gods children is equal and unconditional. I love my God in return and only fear the consequences of failing my God. Life is like school my brothers and sisters who now number in the billions. Many do not appreciate and make the best of their time and when they are there and when they are out of it they all wish to be back there. "by Thy knowledge which prevades all things"= truth is beautiful to behold and I thank you for undertstanding that. Each of us has a piece of Gods knowledge which makes us as a body become a physical part of our God. That body will form as the realization that we need to heal as a body of peoples who are all religions and become ONE. The power of One would astound you. Spiritually and physically we must become one through understanding our diversities. To the Indians there are four colors of peoples. Black, white, yellow, Red. It also is part of the truth as each color when formed into a body of people each possess gifts or abilities some of which are revealed in part already. Right now the key is the Middle East and is being handled by Government and Military with poor results. Let me ask you. If this is a religious matter why is the Church excluded from assisting resolution. Israel will listen to no one but I guarantee they will listen to one. The "Prophet sent by God" as fortold. I am from this english world yet I know the face of Islam my friends. Physically I was born Brian Daniel Lawlor but spiritually I am all peoples who are all religions." reflect on the Divine Words and to act upon them" are actions all will undertake soon...patience..take care and stay safe out there. Gods knowledge and the subject of free we save for later.

  110. Abdul-Haq Jawula from United States

    May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you, your family and friends.And may Allah confine us within the fold of his Grace Bounty and Love and may Allah keep us within the Boundaries of truth wisdom understanding and patience. And may Allah protect us from the punishment of his hell fire and the grave punishment. And may Allah admit us into his Paradise. Aameen
