Prayer & Preperation for Laylatul Qadr
Eve of Destiny (Laylatul Qadr) is the night, which is the most blessed and excellent of all nights.All righteous actions in this night are as if performed for 80 years !. The destiny for the year is decided on this night. Our destiny to large extent can be changed in this very night and much depends on us, how we decide to utilize each single moment of this night. It therefore requires prayer & preperation for being able to understand its importance , perform the best acts & benefit from it. One of the most important prayers and requests which a fast observer should not forget, and from the very beginning of the Holy Month every night, day, and at every available opportunity should beseech Allah (the Glorious, the Exalted), is to bestow upon him the divine grace for worshipping, servitude, and night-vigil during the nights of Qadr
