Seeking The Night

It is recommended to seek the night and spend it diligently in devotion, including night Sunnah prayers (Tahajjud), recitation of Al-Qur'an and supplications.

In a hadith related by Abu Hurairah (raa), the Messenger of Allah (saas) said:
“He who spends the night in prayer on the Night of Power, as a sign of His faith, and seeking rewards from Allah, his previous sins will be forgiven.” (Buk­hari/Muslim)

This citation indicates that regardless of whether a person knows the night or not, Allah will grant him forgiveness for previous shortcomings.

“ And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is?; The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.” (Al-Qur`an 97:2-3)

Allah is emphasizing by putting the second verse in question form. The answer being no one knows, or compre­hends, the awesomeness and the depth of honor of the night. As if to say whatever merits Allah informs you about the night is just nothing compared to the things you have no idea about.

Nonetheless, He mentions three honors in the credit of the night:

1. “The Night is better than a thousand months.”

2. “Therein, come down the angels...”, and

3. “Peace!”
