Ramadan nights

Ramadan nights
Now is the time when the nights are more important than the days; when we rest and sleep more during sunlight-hours and pray, ask for forgiveness and read Qur’an as much as possible when it’s dark outside.
It’s the most important week of Ramadan and herein lies the most blessed night, laylat-ul-quadr, which is a night better than a thousand months.

“And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me.  So let them respond to Me (by obedience) and believe in Me that they may be rightly guided.”
[Quran 2: 186]

“Whoever stands (in voluntary payers on the nights of) Ramadan out of faith and hoping for reward from Allah, his past sins will be forgiven.”
[Al-Bukhaari]

quran bismillah

“Indeed, We sent it (i.e. the Quran) down in laylat-ul-quadr (the Night of Decree). And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit (i.e. Gabriel) descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.”
[Quran 97: 1-5]
