We only have a few days left of Ramadaan - let us make the best of it and
gain maximum spiritual benefit from these few but great and blessed days.
Who knows if we will see the next Ramadaan or not. Let us all make
Istighfaar in abundance, stay away from oppression, injustice,
transgression, disobedience and all types of sin. Let us be concerned and
fulfil all the rights of fellow human beings. Let us all create love, unity
and quality of helping each other within the ummah. Let us stay away from
vain and futile activities. Let us all act upon all good, plead sincerely
for forgiveness before our Most Merciful Rabb and abstain from all evil.

From the amongst the nights of the mubaarak month of Ramadan, one is known
as Lailatul Qadr and during it, blessings, rewards, forgiveness and an
abundance of good can be gained.
Allah, Most Exalted, has made worship during this night worth more than a
thousand months, i.e. anyone who spent this night in worship, would have
worshipped more than an equivalent of eighty three years and four months -
lailatul qadri khayrum-min-alfishahr - "The night of al-Qadr is better than
a thousand months." The reality is that Allah can increase the rewards
gained during this month to as much as He wants and this is an amount which
is beyond our imagination.
The meaning of Lailatul Qadr in detail.

The month of Ramadhan has been singled out for special worship (`Ibadat) and exclusive favours. It is a month unlike other months. One reason for this, as defined by the Qur'an, is because the Holy Qur'an was revealed in this month. Says Allah in Sura al­Baqarah: The month of Ramadhan, that in which the Qur'an was sent down; a guidance for mankind, and clear signs of guidance and distinction (2:185). In fact, according to a hadith of the 6th Imam (a), the other holy books were also revealed in this month.
Among the nights of Ramadhan is one special night, which is better than a thousand months (HQ, 97:3). Good deeds performed on that single night are equal to those performed over a thousand months. It is the Night of Power (Laylatul Qadr), when the Qur'an was revealed. Some commentators believe it was the night when the Qur'an was brought down from Baytul M`amur (Heavenly abode), for Jibrael to reveal in parts to the Prophet (s). Others say it was the night when the Prophet received the entire Qur'an, but was asked to transmit it as and when the occasion demanded.
Laylatul Qadr is a celebration to commemorate the arrival of the final guidance for humans. It is a tribute to the commencement of the message revealed to mankind by their Creator, a message which shows them the way to achieve happiness in both the worlds. Just as the arrival of a child is celebrated, on its birth and then every year, as a bringer of joy and fulfilment for the family, Laylatul Qadr is celebrated as a bringer of light and guidance for mankind. Unlike the birthday which is celebrated with a feast for the senses, Laylatul Qadr includes a feast for the spirit, a feast of worship and prayers.
Some Ahadith indicate that the fate of every believer for the coming year is decreed on this night. That is why the Du`as for this night ask for special favours in the decree for the year. Believers are encouraged to stay awake the entire night, and pray for blessings and forgiveness. It is the holiest night of the year, and it would be unwise to be heedless of the tremendous benefits of this night.
