Now, we are in the 10 days of Ramadhan, 10 days away from Hari Raya Eid (but that's not I want to stress out here!). There is one night believed in the 10 nights Ramdhan called Lailatul Qadr as in the Quran:

On the Night of Power pray to God with all your heart and He will definitely answer all your prayers. The Quran says : "Surely We revealed it (the Holy Quran) on the grand night. And what will make you comprehend what the grand night. The grand night is better than a thousand months. The angels and Gibreel descend in it by the permission of their Lord for every affair, Peace! It is till the break of the morning." (Al-Qadr:1-5)

The Night of Power is full of blessings because the Eminent Quran descended in it. The Quran is peace by itself. It distinguishes between the good and evil and shows the path of eternal Peace and Bliss to all Mankind forever. This being so, the Night in which this Divine Book was sent down is worthy of great esteem.During this night, as explained in the verse quoted above, the Angels and the Jubrail descend. Their nearness to earth gives a spiritual luster to the hearts and souls of the believers.

Those who pass his night in Prayer, experience an unimaginable bliss, a deep feeling of great pleasure as a result of immense heavenly blessings in this night. Recite the Holy Quran, seek Allah's forgiveness and pray for the good of this world as well as the hereafter.We never knew that maybe this is the last Ramdhan for us in this world, so I want to remind me and my fellow friends to seek this blessed nights with ibadah, tahajud prayer and seek for Allah's forgiveness for our sins.
