Laylatul Qadr (Night of Power) also spelled as Lailatul Qadr or Laylat Al Qadr, is one of the most important nights (for Muslims) in the holy month of Ramadan. Laylat al-Qadr is one of the night of the last ten days of Ramadan month. Muslims believe that on this night the blessings and mercy of Allah are abundant, sins are forgiven, and supplications are accepted. May Allah, grant us the benefit of Laylatul Qadr.
Allah says in Quran, “Verily, We have sent it (Quran) down during the Night of Decree (the night of Al-Qadr).” – [Quran, 97:1]
Allah says in Quran: “The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.”- Quran (Surah Al-Qadr, 97:3)
Most probably there are chances that Lailatul Qadr can be on Date 27th night of Ramadan (So this year chances are on 22 June 2017) but it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t be on other nights because Lailatul Qadr rotates. Messenger of Allah, (Peace Be Upon him) said seek it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. So you should not focus on just 22 June 2017 but focus on all last 10 nights of Ramadan.
