BismiLlahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim:

فِي لَيْلَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ ۚ إِنَّا كُنَّا مُنذِرِينَ (3) فِيهَا يُفْرَقُ كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ (4)

(Qur’an 44:3-4) “Fī Laylatin Mubārakatin ۚ ‘Innā Kunnā Mundhirīn (3) Fīhā Yufraqu Kullu ‘Amrin Ĥakīm (4)”, “In a blessed night. Indeed, We were to warn [mankind] (3) On that night is made distinct every precise matter (4)” Regarding tonight [Laylatu l-Bara’ah], Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is saying in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan about the value and meaning of this night. Tonight is a holy night. What will happen in a year for everyone will be written one by one on this night. It is written.

We should spend this holy night with Dua. There is also a 100 Rakā’at prayer. In addition to that, you can pray Salatu t-Tasabih. We will do that insha’Allah. Those who are not in Jama’ah can do it on their own. It doesn’t have to be in Jama’ah. There are people who say it cannot be done in Jama’ah. But Jama’ah is better. It is nicer to celebrate this night in a community. Allah ﷻ loves Jama’ah.

Certainly, as it had different meanings in old times, some scholars say there shouldn’t be Jama’ah. But the more people gather for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ now, the more benefit there is. “يَدُ اللَّهِ مَعَ الْجَمَاعَةِ”, “Allah’s ﷻ Hand of Power is upon the the community.” [Hadith]. Allah’s ﷻ Hand of Power is with Jama’ah, with the community.

On this holy night, the Rizq, death, deeds; everything that will happen in a year is written. If a person will reach another year or not, whatever will happen, whatever the will of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is, wherever there will be a war, flood or earthquake; all of this will be written tonight a year in advance. Therefore, even though it is written in the presence of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, He ﷻ can change whatever He ﷻ wants and do whatever He ﷻ wants.

There is Yasin that is to be read three times tonight between Maghrib and Isha’. They are recited with these intentions: a long good life, asking for Halal Rizq and good deeds to make our Iman steadfast. There is a certain Dua. This Dua is recited after each Yasin between Maghrib and Isha’. If there is evil, it will be changed to goodness insha’Allah.

Allah ﷻ is capable of everything. We cannot interfere in the wisdom and work of Allah ﷻ. Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam has told us about it. And it is beneficial for us to follow him ﷺ and do this. Everything is in Allah’s ﷻ Hand of Power. He ﷻ can protect you if He ﷻ wants. He ﷻ can delay if He ﷻ wants. Everything is in His ﷻ Hand.

People’s mind cannot comprehend anything. And it cannot comprehend the wisdom of Allah ﷻ at all. Therefore, just follow what is said, follow the way shown by our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. You will be at ease and in safety. The actual safety is the safety of Akhirah. Insha’Allah we will reach safety by being steadfast and will always be in safety insha’Allah, we will be on the way of Allah ﷻ.

May it be blessed upon you. There are a few holy nights in a year; and tonight is one of these holy nights. May Allah ﷻ make it good and full of Barakah. Insha’Allah may it be a means for goodness. May there be safety. May there be victory to Islam insha’Allah. May Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam whom we are waiting for come insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
