Umrah and The Night of Qadr

by Abdul Maaz Travel Agent
Umrah is a blessed journey that a Muslim undertakes to purify its heart, mind, body, and soul. Minor to Hajj Pilgrimage, Umrah is a voluntary Ibadah. However, for a believer who is mentally, physically as well as financially capable of it, it is advised performing Umrah. The rewards of minor pilgrimage are no lesser than that of Hajj. That’s why it is performed by tens of thousands of people all around the year. Especially, the month of Ramadan is busiest in this regard.

Ramadan itself is the most sacred and holiest month of the Islamic calendar and if one is given the opportunity for Umrah during this time, there’s not a better duo. Spending the holy time of Ramadan while on the holy pilgrimage is a dream come true. The cherry on top, the Night of Qadr can also be observed in Haramain if you are traveling through Cheap Umrah Packages in the last Ashra of Ramadan.

The Night of Qadr.

Layla-tul-Qadr also known as the Night of Power, Night of Destiny, and Night of Decree; is a single night that is the most blessed compared to any night of the year. It’s the night when the Holy Quran was first revealed to the Holy Prophet (SAWW) by the will of Allah Almighty. Hazrat Jibril (AS) came with the message of Allah almighty and revealed the first five verses of Surah-al-Alaq to Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW). After which the period of enlightenment of mankind i.e. the prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) began and so did Islam. 

The Night of Qadr can fall anytime within the odd-numbered nights of the last Ashra of the Holy month of Ramadan. The exact date and time of it, however, is not mentioned anywhere in the Islamic teachings. 

What to do during the Night of Qadr?

During the night of Layla-tul-Qadr, a Muslim must recite Holy Quran as much as possible. He/she must devote all of its time in the Dhikr of Allah Almighty and supplicate to him. It is said that during this night one may ask Allah Almighty for whatever he/she wishes and surely Allah Almighty grants with it. Therefore, do not forget to make as much Dua as possible for yourself as well as for others and seek repentance. Who knows whether you are going to get this chance again or not?

Itikaf.

Many people intend Itikaf for the last ten days of Ramadan. It’s the concept of cutting yourself off from worldly matters and devoting all of your time for the Dhikr and Ibadah of Allah Almighty. Usually, a person intending Itikaf stays the last ten days of Ramadan alone, in a separate room/place i.e. where interaction with others is at its minimum. 

Hence, if you are traveling for Umrah in Ramadan and get a chance to spend the last Ashra of Ramadan there as well, you must intend for Itikaf and get the most out of your time by supplicating to Allah Almighty.
