6 Tips for Laylat Al-Qadr…Don’t Miss the Best Night

#2. To Do List

Allah the Almighty wants us to strive in achieving something better for this life and the next. That is why the exact night of Qadr was not disclosed. Make a to-do checklist for each of the last ten nights of Ramadan.

Prioritize things from your list and define how you would like to do them. Avoid wasting time in unproductive chats and begin your worship, focusing on nothing else that does not otherwise require your direct or immediate attention.

#3. Supplications: Plan Ahead

We know that the night of Qadr falls within the last 10-days of Ramadan. Make a record of prayers and supplications. They don’t have to be long. They can be for this world and the next.

Practice ahead and keep them posted everywhere so you can read them all day. I have mine on my mobile’s memo, my laptop and in the kitchen, too.

But remember, the best-of-the-best of all supplications one can make on this special night was narrated by `A’isha:

‘I asked the Messenger of Allah, ‘O Messenger of Allah if I know what night the night of Qadr is, what should I say during it?’ He said, “Say:

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Allahumma innaka `afuwwun, tuhibbul-`afwa, fa`fu `anni

O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me.

(At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa’i and Ibn Majah)

#4. Family Time

With the pressures of work, school and daily life, sometimes Taraweeh, or night prayers, are not easy to perform every night of Ramadan, but strive to do your best to make the extra effort in joining  others at the mosque, or pray together as a family.

Something I will never forget was the congregational prayers we did as a family. My father would always reinforce the saying, “families that pray together stay together.”

While my family is now all separated in life’s journey, we hope to be reunited again in the hereafter. I pray for this daily. Regardless of the hardships in this dunya, we should all strive for the hereafter.
