signs of laylatul qadr


Can we see Laylat al-Qadr?

Laylat al-Qadr may be seen with the eye, for the one whom Allah helps to see it. That is by seeing its signs. The Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them) used to recognize it by its signs. But not seeing them does not mean that one will not gain its reward, if one spends that night in prayer out of faith and the hope of reward. (Signs Of Laylatul Qadr)

The Muslim should strive to seek it in the last ten nights of Ramadan, as enjoined by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), hoping to earn reward. 

If it so happens that a person spends this night in prayer out of faith and seeking reward, then he will gain its reward, even if he does not know that was Lailat ul Qadr. 

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever spends the night of Laylat al-Qadr in prayer out of faith and seeking reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.”

According to another report: “Whoever spends that night in prayer, seeking Lailat ul Qadr, then he catches it, his previous and future sins will be forgiven.”
