Lailath Al-Qadr In Different Places. by Taamas111 (m): 6:08pm on January 13

What are some of the signs of
the night of Power? Will the
Lailat-ul-Qadr be different at
different places? For example if
27th night is here in India it will
be morning in America. Angels
will leave the mosque in the
morning in India. At this time it
will be night in America. Then
will the Angels come down
again to mark Lailat-ul-Qadr in

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger, may Allah exalt his
mention as well as that of his
family and all his companions.

Lailat-ul-Qadr or the Night of
Decree is not known but it is
definitely one of the last ten
nights of Ramadan. There are
signs which if they appear are
indications that the night has
arrived. Some signs appear
during the night itself, and
others may occur the following
Signs that occur during that
night are described in the
following Hadeeth. Ahmad
reported from Ubaadah Ibn As-
Saamit, may Allah be pleased
with him, that he said that the
Prophet said: "Lailat-ul-Qadr is
a clear and shining night as if there
were a bright moon in it. It is calm and
tranquil. It is neither cold nor hot and
no shooting stars are thrown in it till
the morning".
Imaam Muslim also
reported from Abu Hurayrah,
may Allah be pleased with him,
who said: "We were talking
about Lailat-ul-Qadr in the
presence of the Messenger of
Allah and he said: "He who
amongst you remembers (the night)
when the moon arose and it was like a
piece of plate (at the fag end of the
month in a state of waning)". Some
scholars say that this
means that it is in the last part
of the month of Ramadan.
Signs that come the next day
are the sun appears the
following morning, white and
without rays (beamless).

As regards your question about
Lailat-ul-Qadr in different
places, as a rule, a Muslim has
to believe in al-Ghaib without
any form of questioning. Al-
Ghaib literally means a thing
not seen. Islamicly, Al-Ghaib
means to believe in: Allah,
Angels, Holy Books, Allah's
Messengers, Day of Resurrection
and al-Qadar (pre destination)
as well as what Allah has
informed about creation, and
about Paradise and Hell.
As mentioned above, we are to
believe in al-Ghaib since the
human mind can not perceive a
manner in which Angels
descend in Lailat-ul-Qadr or any
other nights, or even the
manner in which Allah, The
Great and Almighty, descends to
the heaven of this world at the
last third each night. Allah
alone knows that matter since
our minds, in their human
nature, can not comprehend it.
And if we do not know or see
something, this does not mean
it does not exist. It is our duty,
as true Muslims, to say: we
believe in what Allah has
informed us of in His
statements as well as in what
His Messenger stated and
implied in his sayings.

Allah Praises His servants in the
Qur'an saying: "This is the Book
(the Quran), whereof there is no doubt,
a guidance to those who are Al-
Muttaqeen [the pious and righteous
persons who fear Allah much (abstain
from all kinds of sins and evil deeds
which He has forbidden) and love Allah
much (perform all kinds of good deeds
which He has ordained)]. Who believe in
the Ghaib …" [2:2-3].
Furthermore, it is true to say
that the descent of Angels is
continuous, i.e. their presence
is as successive as the passage
of time in each and every place.
Allah knows best.
