Thought for the day
I once visited a mosque towards the end of Ramadan.
Inside the mosque were individual sleeping compartments separated out by white cloths, like the inner lining of a tent.
Some Muslims would spend all ten nights here, without any contact with the outside world by mobile phone or any other way.
They come here simply to pray and read the Quran. Such devotion!
During one of the night’s of the last ten days of Ramadan Muslims believe that the blessings and mercy of God are abundant, sins are forgiven, visions and dreams are given and supplications are accepted.
This night is called ‘Laylat al-Qadr’ variously known in English as the Night of Power, Night of Decree, Night of Value, Night of Destiny, or Night of Measures.
While not all will be resident in the mosque at this time, many will attend extra prayers and Quranic readings and hope for blessing.
Prayer for the day
As Muslims seek blessing from God during the last ten nights of Ramadan, let’s pray they would have encounters with the true and living God.
Why not take some of this evening to pray for Muslims to have encounters with the living God. You might like to use this Night of Power prayer resource.
