Laylah al Qadr and the Lesson against Disputes

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

While striving to increase our worshipping during the last 10 nights of Ramadhān, we must also remind ourselves of this important lesson!

Narrated by Ubada bin As-Samit رضي الله عنه :

The Prophet صلي الله عليه وسلم came out to inform us about the night of qadr but two Muslims were quarreling with each other. So, the Prophet صلي الله عليه وسلم said, “I came out to inform you about the night of qadr but such-and-such persons were quarreling, so the news about it had been taken away; yet that might be for your own good, so search for it..”

Sahih Bukhari Chapter No: 32, Night Prayer in Ramadaan (Taraweeh)

Shaikh Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani Saheb mentioned, after referring to this narration, that our beloved Nabi صلي الله عليه وسلم didn’t forget the knowledge about Laylah al Qadr without Allah Ta’ālā’s will. Rather, Allah Ta’ālā had intended for us to strive more (throughout the odd nights during the last 10 days of Ramadhan) to receive the immense rewards of this blessed night. However, through this incident, Allah Ta’ālā further revealed the wrongfulness of the act of altercation and dispute (1).
