"Allah's will-not mine."
I found the words come to me in a moment of understanding. Prostrating to the creator of the heavens and the earth banishes the naffs.
"Less me (ego)-more Allah."
The words dug deep into my psyche.
Thank you Allah.
Laylatul Qadr (Night of Power) is described in the Quran as, "better than a thousand months" (97:3). Any action done on this night such as reciting the Quran, remembering Allah, etc. is better than acting for one thousand months.
The Prophet said: Look for Laylatul Qadr on an odd-numbered night during the last ten nights of Ramadan (Bukhari). Related by Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her.
The Prophet said: "Whoever prays during the night of Qadr with faith and hoping for its reward will have all of his previous sins forgiven." (Bukhari and Muslim recorded from Abu Huraira.)
