Laylat Al Qadr: the night of Destiny, Revelation, Power, Predestination; call it what you will but this one night, which is the pinnacle of spirituality in Ramadan, has an immense psychological and cleansing effect on me. When the Prophet (pbuh) said ‘seek it’ I kind of get what he meant.
Indeed We sent it [the Holy Quran] down on the Night of Power.
What will convey to you what the Night of Power is like!
Better is the Night of Power than a thousand months
in that Night the angels and the Spirit descend
by the permission of their Lord for every affair.
Peace it is, till the break of dawn.
[Quran, Chapter 97]
May Allah (SWT) grant us all his mercy and may we be able to find this blessed night 🙂
Ramadaan Mubarak Nas!
amen to that brother. ramadan mubarak to you as well muhammad.:-)
So how do people celebrate eid in jordan? just wondering as im from england.(and eid is boring here!)
summaya, I haven’t celebrated an Eid holiday in Jordan for the past 5 years. But I’m guessing not much has changed. For the most part it consists of the staple events that include going to prayers followed by a day where people visit each others houses, both family, friends and neighbours, where they eat ma3mool and arabian coffee.
others attend feasts, and others lock their doors and close their shutters in hopes that people will think they’re not home and they wont have to give their guests’ kids any money.
i doubt much has changed
thats quite funny! sounds quite simular to eid here! is suppose i though with more muslims there it would be quite exciting.
here, eid is where we dress up and sit at home,doing nothing!
Oh well it only comes twice a year so we better make the most of it.
