The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. (Quran 97:3-5)
An act of worship on the Laylatul Qadr multiplies your blessings more than any other night of the year. If you spent the whole of Laylatal Qadr helping people, your reward would equal a staggering 83 years of charity. That’s an entire lifetime of reward packed into one powerful, wondrous night.
Here’s what your charity could provide:
£100 - Jerusalem Welfare Centre- provide a vulnerable Palestinian child with schooling, clean toilets, a playground, and welfare support.
£500 – Healthcare at 6 Yemen clinics - provide 20 vulnerable Yemenis with medical care across six clinics, including a children’s cancer clinic.
£720 – Support a street child in Pakistan for 1 year - change the life of a street child by providing food, a safe space, healthcare, counselling, and skill development, giving them a way out of abuse and exploitation.
As many Muslim countries lock down through Ramadan, we’re fortunate to be able to observe taraweeh, and to witness the gradual healing here in the UK.
We thank Allah for allowing us to witness another blessed month, filled with forgiveness, bounty and mercy. Let’s try to spread these blessings to those who get no respite from the extreme violence, displacement and oppression they’ve faced throughout Ramadan.
The Prophet (PBUH) told us to look for the Night of Power in the last ten nights of Ramadan, particularly on the odd nights. As we approach the end of the holy month, don’t forget to give your Zakat and Zakat al Fitr, and maximise your chance for reward.
Follow the Prophet’s (PBUH) example of worship in the last ten days by supporting our transformative projects this Laylatul Qadr, and benefit from the unparalleled reward of this blessed night.
Laylat al-Qadr changes every year, but the Messenger told us to “Seek out Laylat al-Qadr in the odd nights during the last ten nights of Ramadan.” (Al-Bukhari)
As we enter the final days of Ramadan, join us in seeking the blessings of the most powerful night of the year, and benefit from the magnificent blessings in the hereafter.
May Allah allow us to benefit from the blessings of Laylat Al Qadr, may we do that which pleases Him greatly and may we reap from the fruits of this night throughout our lives in dunya and the hereafter. May He also allow us to grow our hope and increase us in guidance always ameen.
Allahumma Innaka afuwwun kareemun tuhibbul afwa fafu anni.
(Oh Allah, you are generous and you love to forgive, so forgive me!)
