As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmutallahi Wa Baraakaatahu

It’s your Sunnah Infographics Family here! 

We hope that you are enjoying Ramadhan.

You've completed your first week!

Well done! 

But don't celebrate too soon..

Time is moving extremely quickly!

And there is still so much more to do.

With so many blessings throughout this virtuous month..

The biggest of them all is yet to come..

The Night of Decree.

Yes..

Laylatul Qadr!

Let's learn more..

Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al Qadr (The Night of Decree)  (97:1-5) 

بِّسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

 إِنَّآ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ فِى لَيْلَةِ ٱلْقَدْرِ

Verily, We sent it—(the whole Qurʾān)—down (to the lowest heaven) during the Night of Decree (for it to be revealed piecemeal thereafter).

وَمَآ أَدْرَىٰكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ

        And what will inform you what is the Night of Decree?

لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ

        The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. 

تَنَزَّلُ ٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةُ وَٱلرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ

        The Angels and the Spirit—(Gabriel)—descend therein by the permission of their Lord with (decrees) for every affair.

سَلَٰمٌ هِىَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ ٱلْفَجْرِ

        Peace it is (for Allāh’s believing servants) (or: as the salutation from the Angels to every believer they come across), until the emergence of dawn. 

 

1 Hadith 

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said when the month of Ramadan began, “Verily, this month has presented itself to you. There is a night within it that is better than a thousand months. Whoever is deprived of it has been deprived of all good, and none is deprived of its good but that he is truly deprived.”

Reflection Point

As we have completed our first week of fasting..

There's a natural comfortability that overcomes everyone..

Thinking that Ramadhan will last forever!

It won't!

It will be over quicker than you can say “Eid Mubarak!”

So today's reflection will be making sure that you continue to stay focused and prepare for the last ten nights!

We started early with preparing you for the blessed month.

We will now start early with preparing you for the second half of Ramadhan Insha Allah.

So continue praying your five daily prayers, attending the masjid for evening prayers, saying a good word to others, spending in charity and creating stronger ties with your communities.

This should be at the forefront of your activities throughout this time.

Insha Allah

During your first week..

You may have started to feel some fatigue and tiredness.

But just remember...

This is perfectly normal.

As your body is adjusting to the lack of food and drink throughout the day.

As you come to the end of your second week!

It will become easier Insha Allah.

The most important takeaway is that this fasting is for your Lord.

And when we consider..

Everything that Allah provides for us!

You must strive to seek closeness to him throughout these days, seeking forgiveness and rectification of ourselves and our communities.

And don’t pay too much attention to the distractions around you!

Build your relationship with your Lord.

The Mighty, the Majestic! 

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala!

Perhaps he may reward you with Al Jannah.

This week, we have designed an informative and well-designed infographic to highlight the importance of seeking out the night of decree  in the last ten nights. 

Yes...

Laylatul Qadr!

Ponder over this for a second..

1000 months in one night is equal to 83.3 years of worship. Something completely unfathomable and well past the life expectancy of 74 (an average persons life span), according to the World Health Organisation. 

So in one night, a lifetime of worship and more! 

How can we not focus and prepare for this?

For that reason again, we have designed this weeks Infographic to share with every single Muslim on planet earth, as a reminder and encouragement to prepare for these nights ahead Insha Allah.
