Laylatul Qadr - Five Nights Tips

Quran says : “Lailatul Qadr is better than a thousand months” [97:3], which is equivalent to 83 years of worship approx. From authentic narration we get to know that Laylatul Qadr may fall on odd number of nights in the last ten days of Ramazan i.e 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th night. This blessed night starts right from Magrib i.e dusk ( not Isha) and lasts till dawn i.e time when fasting ends.

  1. Offer Salatul Majrib, Isha and Fajar in Jamaat it would be as though you have offered salaat with Jamaat every day for 83 years and never miss the Jamaat of Isha and Fajr you will get the rewards of spending the entire night in salaah for 83 years. [Ref: Hadith narrated by Uthman bin Affan (radiAllahuanhu) recorded by Tirmidhi ]
