The feeling of excitement is all over the Muslims when you actually have your sehri of 20th Ramzan. :D
Now what excitement i am talking about. YES its the excitement of first "TAAK RAAT" (odd numbered night).
You start to prepare mentally that "Oh how wonderful. I"ll be praying all the night.I"ll be in a process of a strong relation with ALLAH and hence I"ll have my all wishes be fulfilled in the very near future with the word "INSHAALLAH".
We start to ask our Elders what NAFLI ibadat we could do and hence we are slowly approaching the first TAAK RAAT and GUESS WHAT? IT COULD BE A
SHAB-E-QADAR(Night of Blessings) :D :D
The night which gives you the reward of praying in about 1000 Nights. Would you believe ? I mean that is something awesome :) ..I mean not 2,3,4 ...ItS THOUSAND NIGHTS !
Well I will surely try my best not to miss such a BIG OPPORTUNITY.
Just the matter of praying 5 nights and here you go ! You got the Night of Blessings in your pocket.
ALLAH is indeed the Greatest.
Well this all makes us more excited and after all the best feeling and delight is always you get when you stand infront of ALLAH and start to Pray (Ibadat).
Now you start this from Taraveeh after Isha Prayers and all the way till Fajar you do such noble thing only which will HELP you in BOTH - THE LIFE and THE LIFE HEREAFTER :)
This is the routine what you follow on all the ODD numbered Nights that is 21st' 23rd' 25th' 27th and 29th :D and the night before Eid (Night of Reward (Laylat al-Ja’izah) which has a big importance as well.
As our Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.W said
"Whoever stands up (in worship) on the nights preceding the two EIDS expecting rewards from his Lord, his heart will not die when the other hearts will die " (Ibn Majah)
Now i"ll end this one with some more Hadees
Hazrat Aisha Radiallah Anha stated that Rasool Allah peace be upon him said,
"Look for Lailat-Ul-Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadhan." (Bukhari)
