Laylet il Qadir

I know that most of my Iraqi brothers and sisters are celebrating Ramadan right now. And I was wondering to those of you celebrating on the IBC if you could help me understand more about Laylet il Qadir which is supposed to have happened tonight. Well, on the 27th if I'm not mistaken. (This might post as if it was on the 28th) It was the night the Prophet was first visited by Gabriel. I know this much. But as most of you know by now, I'm Iraqi yet ignorant to many things about Islam. It will also give a chance for us to discuss Islam in this very important time of the year. Again, Happy Ramadan and my best to all of you.

Dear Liminal,

it's the 27th of Ramadan and not the 27th of October, so there is still some time.
Ramadan Mubarak.

Lim, well they dont know excatly when laylat il qadr is, thats why they presume its the last 10 days of Ramadan. But from some Ahadeeth, it was said that it was either the 23rd or 27th. Although as far as I know its the last 10 days of Ramadan, and one of them will be that beautiful night, where the doors to heaven will be open for you....

Take care

Thanks again,
lim
