4 signs of Lailatul Qadr which you should know


IllustrationIllustration - Lailatul qadar the most special night awaited and sought on the odd nights of the last 10 Ramadan. Here is a verse that ensures the descent of the night of Lailatul Qadar and its signs.

"We have sent it down on the night of glory, and do you know what the night of glory is? The night of glory is better than a thousand months" (Al Qadr: 1-3)

If translated from the name, Lailatul Qadar, comes from Arabic which means the night of decree. Mentioned so, because on that night, the Qur'an was revealed as a guide for human life and whoever worshiped the reward will be doubled more than 29,500 times.

About the signs, many opinions mentioned by the scholars when the night of Lailatul Qadar. But a stronger opinion is on the odd nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan.

The most famous, the opinion about Lailatul Qadar occurs on the 27th night of Ramadan. However, the difference in the initial determination of 1st Ramadan makes us unable to make that opinion a definite benchmark.

From Ibn Umar, "Rasulullah SAW had said: whoever wants to meet the night of qadar, let him seek it on the night of twenty-seven." (HR Ahmad with a valid sanad)

"Rasulullah SAW is very earnest in the last 10 days of the month of Ramadan, surpassing his sincerity at other times." (Muslim)

So how do we know that Lailatul Qadar has come? Rasulullah SAW once said about the signs of the coming of Lailatul Qadar. If we feel the four things below, then most likely Lailatul Qadar we have met. The four signs are:

1. The air and the mood of the morning seemed peaceful and calm.

2. The next day of the night Lailatul Qadar, sunshine looks bright but shady.

3. The night is bright, not cold, cloudless, not hot, and no storms.

4. Who worships that night, getting a different impression from the other nights.

From Aisha. She said, "I asked, O Messenger of Allah, what if I can know about the night of the qadar, what should we say that night?". He replied, "Say thou: O God, verily thou forgive, forgive the guilt, then forgive me my iniquity." (HR: Five hadith scholars except Abu Dawud, and Tirmidhi considered saheeh)


It is said, although the existence of Laitatul Qadar is very mysterious but it is real and not much try to be reached by Muslims who are undergoing Ramadan.

And if you know, the value of one day is equal to a thousand months until its blessing, it is very disturbing to be approached, grabbed and held because it is a very extraordinary night.

Moreover, one special phenomenon that can not be seen clearly, but it can be felt its presence is, the arrival of the very many angels who flocked down to earth with two-thirds of the universe to meet the sky feels crowded, how can they come at the same time into this world?

Even the Hadith of the Thayalitical History in Musnadnya no. 2545 is also Ahmad II / 592 and Ibn Khuzaimimah II / 223 mentions: "Lailatul qadar is on the night 27th or 29th, it is the angels who descended at that time to the earth more than the number of pebbles."

Explained in Sura Al-Qadr (97) verse 4: "In that night descend the angels and Jibril with the permission of his Lord to arrange all matters."

Why do many angels come down when the lailatul qadar comes? Ibn Kathir in his commentary says, the number of angels who descended at that time, because of the many blessing on that night.

They descend along with the descent of the blessing and the grace of God, as they are present at times such as when the Qur'an is recited, they surround the dhikr assemblies, and even at that time it is pointed that the wings of the angels are laid on the claimant with all his heart doing his duty. This is because it is a tribute to them.

The presence of this angel is not just a rumor, as it is written from Anas ra who said, the Messenger of Allah said: "On the night of the lailatul qadar, Jibril descends to the world with a host of other angels, then pray for mercy to Allah." (HR Baihaqi Syu'abul Iman).

According to this hadith, there is a conversation between angels and God asking what should be given to the people who have perfected their work.

The work in question is certainly their hard work in reviving the blessed ramadhan with all kinds of deeds that have been led by His Prophet, earnestly and full of sincerity and expect only the pleasure of Allah alone.

Then, what about the fate of believers who are not enthusiastic about the presence of this qadar lailatul? Of meeting the people who are ready to be born inward to welcome this Ramadan not with things that are chaotic or careless, but prepare with the best.

Until those who are very ready to welcome this ilaha lailatul in his soul will always be peaceful, safe and comfortable because it is always accompanied by angels throughout the day to encourage him to do good.

His soul felt great peace until dawn! The happy people who accept the presence of angels throughout the night and feel the peace and prosperity until dawn.

His chosen people who get lailatul qadar and accompanied by angels who buzz and glorify his call will look like a new person with a soul that washed away the infinite Divine delights.

The recipients of the qadar lailatul is seen not to stop doing the good in the short term, because basically it will inspire many people to do other positive things.

He will be the pioneer who will share this life until later in the day. Evidently, if the angels down to earth when lailatul qadar is not a figment.
