Lailat-ul-Qadr - A night that is better than a thousand months...
(Sorry, nothing new here, just a repeat of what has previoulsy been said on the forum, but all colated and posted in one topic to remind everyone)

It has been reported by the wife of the Prophet Muhammed (SAW), Aisha (RA):
"I asked the Messenger of Allah if I knew which night was the Lailatul-Qadr and what should I say during that night? He, The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: Say: Allahumma innaka 'afu'wwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee"
[Tirmidhi]

The translation of the above saying is "O Allah! You are most forgiving and you love to forgive, so forgive me". So we should try to engage ourselves in the repetition of this Du'a when seeking Lailat-ul-Qadr on the odd nights in the last ten days of Ramadhan.

The other things we should be doing on this night:
1).
We should stand in Qiyam, offering
Nafl Prayers (optional prayer, all multiples of 2 rakat), Ta Hajjud is the one most people are familair with, others include:
TAHIAT-UL-MASJID - Nafl prayer consisting of 2 rakats, offered upon entering a Masjid
TAHIAT-UL-WUDU - 2 rakats offerred immediately after performing Wudu whilst the limbs are still wet
HAJJUD -
The early part of the night, after Isha before midnight (up to 2 rakats)
TA HAJJUD - The later part of the night, after Midnight but before Fajr (up to 12 rakats)
SALAT-UT-TAWBAH - Prayer seeking forgiveness, can be offered at any time of the day except at those time when it is forbidden to pray (As many rakats as you like, in multiples of 2)
ISHRAAQ -
After sunsrise but before noon (up to 4 rakats)

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said about Lailat-ul-Qadr:
"Anyone who stays awake during the Night of Power with belief (IMAAN) and for the pleasure of Allah, all his previous sins will be forgiven."
[Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]
"Whoever stands (in prayer) on the night of power with Iman and with hope of reward all his previous sins are forgiven."
[Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "If any of you enters the Mosque, let him not sit until he prays two rakats."
[Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]

Abu Hurayra (RA) related that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to Bilal, "Oh Bilal, tell me about a work that you are most hopeful about (being rewarded for) from the works you have done in Islam, for I heard the thumping of your sandals in front of me in Jannah."
He said, "I did not do a work more hopeful to me, except that I never performed ablution in an hour of night or day without praying with that ablution what was written for me to pray."

[Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]

The Prophet, Muhummed (SAW) is reported to have said, "He who performs Fajr Salaat with Jamaat and remains seated in the same place while engaging in Dhikr until after sunrise and thereafter performs 2 Rakaats of Ishraaq, he will obtain the Thawaab of one Hajj and one Umrah."
[Tirmidhi]

The Prophet, Muhummed (SAW) is reported to have said, "He who says Ishraq prayers without fail shall have his lesser sins forgiven even though they may be as numerous as foam specks on the surface of the sea."
[Tirmidhi]

2). We should be pre-occupied in Dhikr of Allah (Remembrance of Allah) at every opportunity and recite the Du'a:
Allahumma innaka 'afu'wwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee
Or the variation:
Allahumma innaka 'afu'wwun kareemun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee ya kareem

3). We should also refer to read the holy book, Al-Qur'an.

4). We should make Du'a, seeking refuge in Allah from the torment of the Hell fire, seeking his mercy, asking for his forgiveness, seeking his guidance.

Those doing All-Nighter's, do not forget to pray Ishraaq to benefit from the reward of one Hajj and one Umrah.

As-Salamu Alaikum,

Salat-ut-Tasbeeh is another Nafil prayer which I forgot to list. I've never prayed this one myself, I've heard of it but I never had the chance to look into it. If I had seen the thread posted by brother 'Kat' earlier, I would have been sure to include it.

Jazak-Allah Kahir for the reminder.

As-Salamu Alaikum,

It was raining yesterday, it was kind of unexpected because it hasn't rained for a while. and strangely enough, I didn't mind it. Anyway, tonight will be our last opportunity to seek Lailat-ul-Qadr this Ramadhan, this year, so let’s make the most of it.

The Sahaba's would spend the six months following Ramadhan praying and hoping that Allah would accept the Ibadah offered in Ramadhan...

Perhaps this is something we should take lesson from and pray that Allah accepts all the Ibadah we have offered during Ramadhan, our Salah (Qiyam, Ruku, Sajdah), our recitation, our Sadaqah, our Dhikr - I hope that Allah accepts all our effort to seek Lailat-ul-Qadr and has forgiven us of our sins this Ramadhan.
