Indeed, WE sent the Quran down during the Night of Decree.
And what is the Night of Decree?
The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.
The angles and the spirits descend therein by the permission of their LORD for every matter.
Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.
ALLAH SWT has given us many opportunities to gain rewards and do good deeds. Lailatul Qadr is one such night ALLAH SWT has made for us to pray and supplicate -- and ask HIM for whatever we wish for, especially forgiveness for our mistakes.
This blessed night, which is mentioned in alQuran, "the night of alQadr is better than a thousand months," comes in the months of Ramadhan, which itself is the most blessed month of all. During this night angles descend from the heaven bringing with them ALLAH's mercy and uncountable blessings for those who pray, fast, zikr, and ask for HIS forgiveness.
AlQuran also states that on this night, all the evil-beings cannot spread their evil. All throughout the night ALLAH SWT sends HIS peace and blessings for all the faithful men and women, both young and old, until the dawn of the new day.
The month of Ramadhan itself is a great month. ALLAH SWT revealed alQuran in this month. ALLAH SWT has made reaping rewards even easier in this month by chaining the syaitaan, closing the gates of Hell, and opening the gates of Heaven.
We should all try to do extra good deeds because this whole month is bestowed for us to gain ALLAH's pleasure. Let's treasure for Lailatul Qadr especially!
It is already the 17th of Ramadhan. Days pass by like the pages I flip through as I am reading a novel. Ramadhan is soon leaving. The feel is like when I was reading the final chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow, wishing that I could read as slow as humanly possible so that it would not be finished soon.
I am counting the days of Ramadhan left to be appreciated, wondering if I am going to leave these days left insignificant or am I going to make the best out of it. And I am afraid of the former one. I love the feel of Ramadhan. To sleep early, wake up early -- way early than usual, dine together, pray together, spend early part of the night at masjid, less watching TV, etc etc.
Despite all the soothe and ease at doing good, I can still feel the difficulties to keep them going consistently. More often than not I would feel the urge to go to bed after Subuh prayer. More often than not I would go on net for hours rather than reciting alQuran. I wonder if Ramadhan has really left, could I be able to keep up the good deeds at all. =.="
To fight our own nafs is, indeed, like battling in a big war.
Happy Nuzul Quran! :)
