,,,>Lailatul Qadr : The Night of Power <,,,


Lailatul Qadr : The Night of Power


Qadr means honour and dignity. Lailatul Qadr means the night of honour and dignity. It is this night in which the first Divine Revelation came to the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam, when he was in prayer in the cave of Hira. Since this night enjoys the honour of having the first revelation brought to the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam, it has been named Lailatul Qadr.


This is one of the holiest and most blessed nights, which is likely to occur on one of the odd nights on the last ten days of Ramadhan and most likely to be the 27th. The reward of worship on this night is better than the worship of a thousand months of worship, equivalent to a person's lifetime. So, on this night one should pray nafil namaz, recite the Quran, do Tasbih, Zikr, Duas, etc as much as possible.


This night had already opened its gates of treasures when the angel for the first time had come with the Divine Message in the cave of Hira, but its auspiciousness has continued to be with us permanently. Every year in the month of Ramadhan, this night is given to the Ummah. Muslims engage in prayers, recitation of Quran and praying to Allah, as the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam said: "The person who offered prayers to Allah in the night of Dignity with faith and with hope of reward from Allah, all his past sins have been forgiven." (Bukhaari)


As the rainy season is suitable for farming, similarly for the attainment of nearness to Allah, specific times , specific days and specific nights are most suitable, e.g. the time of Tahajjud prayers, Friday prayers, month of Ramadhan, the Day of Arafah, etc. So also the Night of Power is the most suitable night for attaining nearness to Allah.


In the Hadeeth, we have been asked to seek it in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadhan. Hazrat Aa'ishah radhiyallahu anhaa narrates that the Messenger of Allah sallalahu alayhi wasallam has said, 'Seek the night of Dignity in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadhan'.(Bukhaari).


By odd nights, the reference is made to the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th, 29th night of the month of Ramadhan. No one night has been fixed so that the yearning to find it may increase and people may spend more nights in worshipping Allah. From this aspect, the importance of `Itikaaf (seclusion) during the last ten days of Ramadhan is clear.

,,,>Andaiku Tahu Ini Ramadhan Terakhir<,,,

Andaiku Tahu Ini Ramadhan Terakhir


Wahai insan, renunglah engkau akan nasib diri

Wahai qalbu,sedarkah engkau akan gerak hati

Wahai aqal,terfikirkah engkau akan apa yang bakal terjadi


Andai ini merupakan Ramadhan ku yang terakhir kali

Buatku sekujur jasad yang bakal berlalu pergi

Tatkala usia bernoktah di penghujung kehidupan duniawi

Pabila tiba saat tepat seperti yang dijanji Ilahi

Kematian...adalah sesuatu yang pasti.....


Andai ku tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir

Tentu siangnya aku sibuk berzikir

"a'la bizikrallahi tat mainnal qulub"

[Bukankah dgn berzikir itu hati akan menjadi tenang..]

Biarpun anak tekakku kering kehausan air

Tentu aku tak akan jemu melagukan syair

Rindu mendayu..Merayu...

Kepada-NYA Tuhanku yang satu...


Andai aku tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir

Tentu solatku dikerjakan di awal waktu

Solat yang dikerjai...Sungguh khusyuk lagi tawadhu'

Tubuh, minda, dan qalbu...bersatu memperhamba diri

Mengadap Rabbul Jalil...Menangisi kecurangan janji

"innasolati wanusuki wamahyaya wamamati lillahirabbil 'alamin"

[sesungguhnya solatku, ibadahku, hidupku, dan matiku..

kuserahkan hanya kepada Allah Tuhan seru sekelian alam]


Andai aku tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir

Tidak akan aku persiakan walau sesaat yang berlalu

Setiap masa tak akan dipersia begitu saja

Di setiap kesempatan juga masa yang terluang

Alunan Al-Quran bakal ku dendang...bakal ku syairkan

Andai ku tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir

Tentu malammu aku sibukkan dengan Berterawih...

Berqiamullail...

Bertahajjud...

Mengadu...

Merintih...

Meminta belas kasih....

"sesungguhnya aku tidak layak untuk ke syurga-MUtapi...aku juga tidak sanggup untuk ke neraka-MU"


Oleh itu duhai Ilahi...

Kasihanilah daku hamba-MU yang...

Hina..

Dhaif..

Jahil..

Lagi Banyak Dosa ini..

Menikmati bulan yg dirindui oleh nabi dan sahabatNya..

Moga setiap langkah ku zuhud kepada MU..

Moga ku istiqamah di ramadhan ini..

ANDAI AKU TAHU INI RAMADHAN TERAKHIR………
