Shaykh Yasir Qadhi elaborates on the concept of Qadr as discussed in Surah Ad-Dukhan verses 1-3.
Laylatul Qadr is referenced twice in the Qur’an – Surah Al Qadr and in Surah Ad Dukhan. Allah describes this blessed night as the night on which every matter and command will be decided.
One of the fundamentals of Iman is to believe in Qadr. We do not try to unravel the mystery of Qadr because that amounts to rejecting our faith.
Allah announces to the angels about the aspects regarding Qadr:
- Allah wrote the Qadr 50000 years.
- When Allah extracted the awrah of Adam AS, it was decided by Him who is going to Heaven and Hell.
- When Allah blows the Ruh into a zygote, his fate is decided – his gender and his Rizq.
Nothing changes Qadr other than Dua and hence, it is absolutely essential that we stand in prayers and make Dua for the best Qadr on Laylatul Qadr.
