Things Necessary to do during Shab E Qadr – All Details

Pray, pray and pray

Shab E Qadr is the most powerful night when Muslims stay up all night to pray to Allah..

Hazrat Aisha Radiallah Anha stated Rasool Allah (s.a.w) said, “Look for Lailat-Ul-Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadhan.” (Bukhari)

Every individual has his own way of praying and whatever you are doing on this night ( praying for forgiveness, reading the Quran, doing tasbeeh or any other form of prayer), i pray it is accepted.

  1. Pray for forgiveness
  2. Salat-ul-Tasbih
  3. Pray Tahajjud
  4. Read the Qur’an
  5. Pray for forgiveness (İstaghfaar)
  6. Salawat (Darood Sharif & Salaam)
  7. Offer nawafil
