Lailatul Qadr, also known as the Night of Power, signifies the pinnacle of the month of Ramadan for practicing Muslims worldwide.

The night of Lailatul Qadr is believed to offer blessings and mercy in multitude, equivalent to more than a thousand months.
The observance of Lailatul Qadr can be traced back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad who encouraged Muslims to seek this blessed night through sincere worship and prayer. In India, with its substantial Muslim population, the holy night holds rich significance. The diversity of Indian culture adds unique regional flavours to the observance of Lailatul Qadr. It's not just about fasting and prayers, but also about charity. Contributions to the poor and needy, locally termed ‘Zakat’, is an important aspect of Lailatul Qadr in India, representing the spirit of giving and humanity inherent in the Islamic faith.
