When is Laylat Al Qadr in 2017?

Looking for when is Laylat Al Qadr in 2017?

If yes, you have come to the right place. Laylat Al Qadr in 2017 will be observed on Tuesday, 20th June.

Laylat al Qadr (Shab-e-Qadr) is known as “The Night of Power” . Under the Islamic observance, this day marks the anniversary of the night when Mohammad received the first verses of the Koran (Qu’ran). Some Muslims spend most of the time during the last 10 days and nights of Ramadan in a mosque. During the hours of daylight, they pray, read the Koran and may rest or sleep.

It is also believed that this night marks the Muslims fate in the following year. This “Night of Power” is considered the most appropriate time of the entire year to pray for salvation and blessings.

However, Laylat al Qadr in 2017 will begin on the evening of Tuesday, 20th June and will end on the evening of Wednesday, 21st June. It is believed that a Muslim’s past sins are forgiven if the person prays throughout this night. Many people assemble at mosques during the Isha’ prayer, with many prayers being made until midnight.
