Laylat al Qadr has the significance of more than 1000 months in Islam. Muslims do prayers on this night. They awake all night because Allah (SWT) is listening to the people who are making dua to ALLAH so that their sins are removed. This night falls in the odd days of the last 10 days of Ramadan. People can worship Allah and Seek refuge from sins. The Night of Power is a day for worship, remembrance, and good works, as well as forgiving.

The Holy Month of Ramadan invites us to ponder, and this night is particularly significant. There is no better way to express gratitude for everything that Allah (SWT) provides in this holy month. Laylat al Qadr is the night in which Muslims offer prayers all night so that their sins are removed from their lives. The last 10 days of the Holy month Ramadan is considered the most important day of the month. Because in these days the odd days are the most important as in these days the night of power( Laylat al Qadr) is found. This night is found by those people who do good deeds all the year and offer prayers in this night.

In the month of Ramadan, Muslims do charity to those who are poor and unable to eat the meal 3 times a day.

Narrated by Ibn ‘Umar
Some men amongst the companions of the Prophet were shown in their dreams that the night of Qadr was in the last seven nights of Ramadan.
