Lailatul Qadar.

Salam, good day. Later this evening we will proceed to the last 10 days of Ramadhan in which Lailatul Qadar is said to be occur in one of the last ten days. The Lailatul Qadar is a special night which only occur in Ramadhan which offers a lot of benefits and blessings. The amount of 'pahala' given on that night is said to be so immense that the night is considered to be better than one thousand months. Lailatul Qadar falls on the last 10 days of Ramadhan, particularly on the 21st and 23rd night according to al-Imam as-Syafi'e Rahimahullah. However, according to Ibnu Abas Radhiallahu, Lailatul Qadar may occur on the 27th night of Ramadhan. Even various opinions have been contributed as to which night this special night occurs, the point is Lailatul Qadar will definitely be there and it will happen one night in Ramadhan. As usual, mosques and prayer halls nationwide will be conducting a 'Qiamulail' (late night sunnat practices) in their effort to get the benefit of experiencing of Lailatul Qadar.

Also one of the most commonly practise during Ramadhan is sedekah (donation). Yesterday the Radio Section of RTB has conducted a Jalinan Kasih, an outreach programme to help the poor, unfortunate and underprivileged people namely warga emas (senior citizen), anak yatim (orphan), ibu tunggal (single mother) and mualaf (converts). Other than RTB staff itself, this programme is also aimed to encourage the public to give a helping hand to the needy.
