Living the Golden Moments

  1. 1. The Golden Momentsin the life of a Muslim
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Allah Unveils the Golden Moments “We have indeed revealed this (Qur’an) in theNight of Power: And what will explain to you whatthe Night of Power is! The Night of Power is better than athousand Months. Therein come down the angelsand the Spirit by the permission of their Lord (onevery errand): (The Night is full of) Peace until the rise ofMorn!” (Al Qur’an, Chapter 97)
  4. 4. Amazing Word, Amazing Meanings! The word Qadr means:1. Worth 2. Position 3. Status4. Esteem 5. Power 6. Glory7. Decree 8. Measure 9. Strength10. Fate 11. Ability
  5. 5. Subhanallah! Laylatul Qadr would mean:1. The Night of Worth, the Night worth spending in ibaadah, the Night bringing immense worth to the worshippers2. The Night of Position, the Night upholding distinguished position3. The Night of Status, the Night bringing enviable status to the Muslims4. The Night of Esteem, the Nightbestowing esteem upon those who care
  6. 6. Subhanallah! Laylatul Qadr would mean:5. The Night of Power, the Night bestowingpower upon the worshippers, the powerfulnight that saw the revelation of the Qur’an,the Book that bestows power to those whovalue it.6. The Night of Glory, the glorious Nightthat brings glory to Muslims
  7. 7. Subhanallah! Laylatul Qadr would mean:7. The Night of Decree, the Night in whichdestiny is re-written by Al Qadir (the Able)!8. The Night of Strength, the Night givingstrength to the worshippers. Subhanallah!
  8. 8. The Prophet (sal-lal-lahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A month has come to you inwhich there is a night which is better thana thousand months. Whoever depriveshimself of its blessings, is deprived of allblessings. And none is deprived of theblessings of the Night of Power except themost unfortunate”. This loving command and caution shouldmake us become intensely serious and sincere instriving to attain the blessings of Laylatul Qadr.
  9. 9. Virtues of Laylatul Qadr Prophet Muhammad said:“Whoever stands up for the Laylatul Qadr withfirmness of belief and stock taking of his deeds,then all his past sins are forgiven”.
  10. 10. Striving hard & straining one’s nervesProphet Muhammad (sal-lal-lahu alaihiwa sallam) did not specify a particularnight to be Laylatul Qadr.By saying, “Seek Laylatul Qadr amongthe odd nights during the last ten nightsof Ramadhaan”, the Prophet (sal-lal-lahualaihi wa sallam) has kept it a secret.
  11. 11. • Herein lies a Muslim‟s thrill. A sublime thrill in striving to live the nights in worship and glorification of the Lord Almighty!• The whole idea boils down to the fact that if you want to aim higher and go beyond the horizon, you need to strive hard.• Precious things can‟t be attained just like that!
  12. 12. • Let‟s use the golden opportunity of living the night of Laylatul Qadr by often supplicating to Allah:•• Allahumma Innaka Afu‟un, Tuhibbul Afwa, Fa‟fu Anni”• O Allah! You are Forgiving, You love to Forgive, So Forgive me.
  13. 13. The Craze for 27th Night!Some questions to those Muslims who „think‟that 27th night is Laylatul Qadr:What if 27th is not Laylatul Qadr, and youthought that it is, and therefore slept all the othernights? Wouldn‟t it be a fatal loss?What if the Government did make a mistake inannouncing the starting date of Ramadhaan?Wouldn‟t the actual 27th Night be on adifferent date then?
  14. 14. • There is hidden wisdom in not confirming the exact time/night of Laylatul Qadr.• There is wisdom in striving to worship in all the last ten nights of Ramadhaan!• Sometimes, a little jerk on a car‟s bumper proves fatal to life.• Do you want your spiritual life to suffer a terrible loss by arguing on assumptions that this night is laylatul Qadr or that night is Laylatul Qadr??
  15. 15. Let‟s think over!If one misses this year‟s LaylatulQadr, he misses the Ibaadah ofONE THOUSAND MONTHS!And who knows this could beone‟s last Ramadhaan!!
  16. 16. May Allah Guide us all on the RightPath. Aameen.Please remember me and my familyin your precious du‟aa.Jazakallahu Khayra.Muqeet
