Akhirah

Akhirah means life after death. It is the place that we will all enter after we pass away in this life.

To believe in the akhirah is very important in Islam. It is one of the Pillars of Iman (belief).

Our life in this world is not for ever. After this life ends, we enter another place - the akhirah. The next life - the akhirah is forever - so that is why we have to do lots of good deeds as a Muslim to be able to go to Jannah (Paradise) in the Akhirah.
If you are bad, and do a lot of bad deeds in this life, then you can go to Hell-fire.


This life is meant to be a preparation for the Akhirah. On the Day of Judgement, we will be tested to see if we can enter Jannah. Allah our good deeds and all our bad deeds will be scaled to see which ones we have more of.

To make sure that we have prepared for the Akhirah and be rewarded by Allah, The Merciful and The Kind, we need to do all that Allah says that we should do, and give up all bad habits and wrong actions. We can do this if we follow the guidance given to Muhammad (peace be upon him) by Allah - like the Qur'an and sunnah.

PostSubject: Lailatul Qadar   Fri Nov 17, 2006 5:29 pm

Lailatul Qadr

One of the reasons why the Blessed month of Ramadan is important is because it was during this month that the Holy Qur'an was revealed. The night when Angel Jibrael first came to the Prophet Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) to bring him the divine message.


Lailatul Qadr means The Night of Power, or the Night of Decree. This is a special night, and is the most important night for those Muslims who are fasting.

So when is Lailatul Qadr? Well, it is not known exactly which night of the month of Ramadan it is, but it falls in the last ten days of Ramadan, and believed to be in the Odd Nights - that means the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th. Many people also believe that Lailatul Qadr is on the 27th Night, because this was the night that it was originally on.


So what happens on this night? On this night, people who fast try and make even more ibadah (worship) than the other nights in Ramadan. It is better than a thousand months, and so is very special and unique.
Muslims try to read more Qur'an and perform nafil salats. They make more Dhikr and Remmeber Allah more. Many Muslims stay up all Night in ibadah, so that they could take advantage of this special Night, because it only comes once a year.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) has explained how special Lailatul Qadr is in the Qur'an:



"Surely we have revealed the Qur'an on the Night of Al-Qadr;
The Night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months;
The Angels and the Spirit (Jibrael) Descend in it
by their Lords' permission, with every decree.
Peace it is, until the break of Dawn."
[Surah Al-Qadr, 97: 1-5]
