Seeking Lailatul Qadr or the Night of Decree

Laylatul Qadr, the Night of Decree or Night of Power, is one of the most sacred nights in the Islamic calendar. It takes place in the last ten days of Ramadan and was the night in which the Qur’an was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

It is also believed to be the night in which Allah shows great mercy to His creation and the night in which one’s fate is decreed.

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).

Sincerely praying for forgiveness, reciting the holy Qur’an, sending salawat (blessings upon the Prophet) and offering optional (nafl) prayers are examples of beneficial acts of worship on these nights.

The exact date of Laylatul Qadr is unknown, although it is thought to occur on an odd night in the last ten days of Ramadan (e.g. the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27 or 29th night). The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “Seek it in the last ten days, on the odd nights,” (Hadith, Bukhari and Muslim).

When Lady Aisha (may Allah be well pleased with her) asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) “O Messenger of Allah, if it is Laylatul Qadr, then what should I supplicate with?” he replied with the famous dua: “Allahumma, innaka Afuwwun Karimun, tuḥibbu al-afwa fa‘afu anna” – “O Allah, indeed You are Pardoning and Generous; You love to pardon, so pardon us.”


Ramadan 2021: Guidelines for the UK Muslim Community

This guidance will address the most salient issues that affect the community in this blessed time. It is based on sharia guidelines about the performance of these central acts of worship, but also takes into consideration the health and safety guidance from Public Health England, as
well as government guidance and regulations relating to lockdown. The major points have been discussed and agreed with central government representatives just prior to publication, and should serve as evidentiary in discussions with local authorities and health boards.

We pray that this month is one filled with spirituality, charity, striving, mercy and forgiveness for all of us, through which we draw closer to our Lord and one another – emotionally, not physically!

Ramadan 2021: Muslim communities urged to remain safe as holy month set to begin

Councils have been working closely with mosques to make sure they are Covid safe

Muslims across the world will begin observing the holy month of Ramadan this year.

The holy month will begin on 12 or 13 April and end on 12 or 13 May depending on the Islamic calendar which follows the lunar cycle.

Much like last year, Ramadan will be drastically different for Muslims across The United Kingdom, with many customs and practices being changed due to Covid restrictions.

Last year Ramadan began almost a month into the first lockdown which meant mosques were closed and people were told to stay at home.

As a result of this, many Muslims were not able to take part in congregational prayers and visit family and friends to break their fast together at sunset.

However, as the country begins its roadmap out of national lockdown some rules have already allowed for places of worship to remain open for communal prayers.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar which Muslims observe by fasting between sunrise and sunset.

An important month for Muslims, the annual event is meant to help people focus on prayer, purification and charitable acts.

In July last year, places of worship were able to reopen with Covid restrictions in place and mosques up and down, the community leaders worked hard to make sure that the places of worship were able to run with social distancing measures put in place.

Social distancing limitations were based on the capacity of individual places of worship which means the night-time prayer, Taraweeh, will take place in mosques but with fewer people and shortened time.

Taraweeh prayers are ritual prayers performed by Muslims at night during the holy month of Ramadan.

As has been the case for several months now, Friday prayers along with the night time prayer, Taraweeh, will be able to take place but at a limited capacity.

Much like last year many people will most likely pray at home with virtual sermons and livestreams set to reconvene.

Councils of Britain have shared a guide on Ramadan safety and Eid this year which advises on fasting, breaking fast, praying and guidance for mosques.

The month of repentance – Part 1

The month of Ramadan is a great opportunity for returning to Allah The Almighty with repentance. It is the month of mercy, erasing mistakes, expiatingevil deeds, salvation from Hellfire and attaining Paradise. The fortunate person is he who knows this and hastens to the actions that draw him near to His Lord by turning to Him in repentance, seeking forgiveness and feeling regret for all his slips and sins.
If one does not repent in Ramadan, then when will he? If one does not repent when the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hellfire are closed and devils are chained up, then when will he repent? When will he give up committing sins?
It is the month of repentance, forgiveness, salvation form Hell fire and the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “May his nose be rubbed in the dust, a man for whom Ramadan comes and then goes before he is forgiven!” [At-Tirmithi; Al-Albaani: Saheeh]
Why do we not repent while Allah The Almighty stretches out His Hand to the seeker of repentance and opens the door of His repentance to those who feel regret (for their sins)? It was narrated on the authority of Abu Moosa Al-Ash‘ari, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Allah The Almighty stretches out His Hand at night to accept the repentance of those who did wrong during the day, and He stretches out His Hand during the day to accept the repentance of those who did wrong during the night. (This will continue) until the sun rises from the west.]” [Muslim]
It was also reported on the authority of Abu Tharr Al-Ghifaari, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Allah The Almighty says: ‘My slaves, you commit sins by day and by night, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness from Me and I shall forgive you.’” [Muslim]
Remember that the Mercy of Allah The Almighty encompasses all things. Is not He The Exalted, the One who opens the door of repentance before the hypocrites?  He The Exalted Says (what means): {Indeed, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire – and never will you find for them a helper. Except for those who repent, correct themselves, hold fast to Allah, and are sincere in their religion for Allah , for those will be with the believers. And Allah is going to give the believers a great reward.} [Quran 4: 145-146]
Allah The Exalted did not exclude the Jews and the Christians, who insulted and slandered Him and says (on their behalf, what means): {And the Jews say, “The hand of Allah is chained.” Chained are their hands, and cursed are they for what they say. Rather, both His hands are extended.} [Quran 4: 64]

Allah The Exalted does not exclude them from His mercy that encompasses all things. He The Exalted Says (what means): {So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.}[Quran 5: 74]    
He The Exalted Says about the non-Muslims (what means): {But if they repent, establish prayer, and give Zakah, then they are your brothers in religion; and We detail the verses for a people who know.} [Quran 9: 11]
Is not He The Exalted, the One who calls those who have transgressed against themselves of the nation of Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, to humble themselves and repent to Him saying (what means): {Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”} [Quran 39: 53] And He called the people of Imaan (faith) to make repentance; He The Exalted Says (what means): {O you who have believed, repent to Allah with sincere repentance. Perhaps your Lord will remove from you your misdeeds and admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow. } [Quran 66: 8]
