شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدىً لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَنْ شَهِدَ مِنْكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ وَمَنْ كَانَ مَرِيضاً أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلا يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

(The certain several days) is the Ramadhan month, a month whereas Al-Qur’an is being declared as human guidance with all its explanations and the differences (between right and the fool).  Thus, those who are testify hilal, he shall does fasting at the month.

 

Those who are in sick condition or traveling (he did breakfasting), then (he required to do fasting) as many as the day he left on the other days. Allah SWT willed simplicity for you and do not want difficulty for you too. You shall required of His counting and glamorize of Allah SWT for all His guidance so you are thankful.”(Al-Baqarah:185)

When does the Lailatul Qadr night happened?

There is no one knows about the exact time of holly night is coming because it is the secret of Allah SWT. Still, Rasulullah SAW indicated us as His ummat to find that night in uneven night at the last 10 days of Ramadhan.

Rosulullah Sholallahu Alaihi Wassalam said,”

تحروا ليلة القدر في الوتر من العشر الأواخر من رمضان

“Find Lailatul Qadr at the uneven night on the last 10 days of Ramadhan.” (HR. Bukhari and Muslim)

What are the signs of Lailatul Qadr night arrival?

Allah SWT commandment,”

وَما أَدْراكَ مَا الطَّارِقُ النَّجْمُ الثَّاقِبُ

“Do you know what is coming at that night? (which is) a star whose lights are pierce.” (QS. At-Thariq 2,3)

There are many Rasulullah SAW hadidhs which are mentioned the similar things, as one of it:

عَنْ جَابِرٍ رضي الله عنه قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ الله صلى الله عليه وسلم  : «إِنِّي كُنْتُ أُريتُ لَيْلَةَ القَدْرِ ثُم نَسيتُهَا وَهِيَ في العَشْرِ الأَوَاخِرِ، وَهِيَ طَلْقَةٌ بَلْجَةٌ لا حَارَّةٌ ولا بَارِدَةٌ، كَأَنَّ فيهَا قَمَراً يَفْضَحُ كَوَاكِبَهَا لا يَخْرُجُ شَيْطَانُها حَتى يَخْرُجَ فَجْرُهَا

“Jabir RA said: Rasulullah SAW said,” Indeed, I have been shown Lailatul Qadr to me and I was forgotten from it. It happened on the last 10 days of Ramadhan. The signs are the night is very bright, it is not hot and cold as if as there is a moon shines the stars, the devils are not hanging around until the dawn comes.” (HR. Ibnu Khuzaimah and Ibnu Hibban)

What types of deeds are recommended to be done at the holy night?

The reason of Allah SWT is hiding the exact time of the coming the Lailatul night is for goodness. Allah SWT expected that all of His ummat will find the night in every night by increasing his worship to Allah SWT like I’tikaf, dizkr, reading Al-Qur’an and qiyamul lail.

Aisyah radhiyallahu ‘anha mentioned that Rasulullah SAW once said,”

كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا دخل العشر – أي العشر الأخير من رمضان – شد مئزره، وأحيا ليله، وأيقظ أهله . متفق عليه

“It is Rasulullah SAW when the time of 10 days of Ramadhan comes, he tight up his sarong (which is increasing his worship), lighten the nights, and wake up of his wifes.” (Muttafaqun ‘alaihi)

Based on the explanation above, we can see that Rasulullah SAW is very serious and prepare himself to face the holly night (Lailatul Qadr) coming which are by improving his worship rather than the regular days. He had done such activities like performing night prayers, reading Al-Qur’an, dhizkr, sadaqah and other good deeds. Prophet of Muhammad SAW said,”

مَنْ قَامَ لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ

“Those who are doing qiyamul lail at the lailatul qadr night, he shall be forgiven all his past sins.” (HR. Bukhari and Muslim).

Most of people think that qiyamul lail which is mentioned on the hadidh is sunnah prayer which is done at the night of the holly night so it is called as Lailatul Qadr.  Referring to the polemic, theologians stated that it came from the hadidh as below:

من صلّى ركعتين في ليلة القدر، فيقرأ في كل ركعة فاتحة الكتاب مرة، وقل هو الله أحد سبع مرات، فإذا فرغ يستغفر سبعين مرة؛ فما دام لا يقوم من مقامه حتى يغفر الله لـه ولأبويه، وبعث الله ملائكة يكتبون له الحسنات إلى سنة أخرى، وبعث الله ملائكة إلى الجنان يغرسون له الأشجار ويبنون له القصور ويجرون له الأنهار، ولا يخرج من الدنيا حتى يرى ذلك كله

“Those who are doing Lailatul Qadr prayer as 2 rakaat and in each rakaat he read Al-Fatihah once followed with qul huwallahu ahad as 7 times, continued with istighfar as 70 times after finished his prayer while sitting there,

 

Allah SWT will give merciful to all his parents, Allah SWT will delegate an Angel to record all his good deeds until the next year, Allah SWT will also delegate an Angel to plant a tree in heaven to him, build a castle for him and stream a river for him. He will not die until he sees all of it.”  

However, the above hadidh is being declared as a false by Fatawa Syabah Islamiah institution because the content was no found in any hadidh in Al-Qur’an. It is stated come from the Syiah community because only Syiah community is doing the Lailatul Qadr prayer.

In conclusion, there is no such special prayer called Lailatul Qadr, but it is recommended to multiply qiyamul lail such as wittr prayer, tahajjud prayer, dhizkr, I’tikaf, reading Al-Qur’an and other great deeds. When the holly night come (Lailatul Qadr), Rosulullah Sholallahu Alaihi Wassalam recommended us to pray:

اللَّـهُـمَّ إنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُـحِبُّ العَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

“ALLAHUMMA INNAKA ‘AFUWWUN TUHIBBUL ‘AFWA FA’FU ‘ANNII.”

“Dear God, you are the most of forgiven and the most gracious, please forgive me.”
