What Is Laylat-ul-Qadr?

In the name of Allah, most gracious and most merciful. Laylat-al-Qadr is otherwise known as the Night of Power and is considered to be the Islamic calendar’s Holiest eve. During this night, Angel Jibril revealed the Holy Qur'an’s first verses to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). This night falls within Ramadan’s final 10 days, and although the exact date is unidentified, it is commonly thought of as the Holy month’s 27th day. This is a night of great commemoration and devotion to Allah (SWT) and places higher than that of 1,000 months. Allah says in the Qur'an, “The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months,” (Qur'an, 97:3). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever prays on Laylatul Qadr out of faith and sincerity, shall have all their past sins forgiven,” (Hadith, Bukhari, and Muslim).

Narrated `Aisha: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Search for the Night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan." (Sahi Bukhari : 2017)

Narrated Aisha: With the start of the last ten days of Ramadan, the Prophet (ﷺ) used to tighten his waist belt (ie work hard) and used to pray all the night, and used to keep his family awake for the prayers. (Sahi Bukhari : 2024)

What is the reward for Laylatul Qadr?
