Youth Presentation- Supplication (Dua) for the Laylatul-Qadr-Night of Power
Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) in Surah Al-Qadr and the Prophet in many hadiths talk about the majesty of Laylatul Qadr, the ‘Night of Power’. It is a night of great mercy, rewards and blessings from our Rabb (سبحانه وتعالى); a night where acts of worship and good deeds performed are worth more than a 1,000 months (83 years) of worship – a whole LIFETIME of ibadaat; and a night of great forgiveness from Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) for our sins. SubhanAllah!
Insha’Allah let’s take full advantage of this night and utilize this audio to recite and memorize one of the great supplications (duas) that can undoubtedly lead us to Jannah.
It was narrated from ‘Aishah (May God be pleased with her) that she said:
“O Messenger of Allah, what do you think I should say in my supplication, if I come upon the Night of Value ?” He said: “Say: O Allah, You are Forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me.‘”
(Reported by at-Tirmidhi)
Phonetic: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni
اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ العَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
The significance of this Night of Power is that it marked the revelation of the Glorious Qur’an and the birth of a COMPREHENSIVE DEEN that brought with it solutions to every problem that mankind would face as individuals, as a society– be it spiritual, moral, economic, family, social, legal, or political. These solutions from the Deen of Islam are unmatched to anything that mankind can produce! We pray that Allah(سبحانه وتعالى) accepts from all of us our fast, Qiyam, and all worship and good deeds. Aameen.
