Allah, SWT has mentioned the signs of laylatul qadr in surah Qadar in Quran, saying
Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace is until the emergence of dawn.
Also he said in surah Ad-Dukhan:
Indeed, We sent it down on a blessed night,1 for We always warn ˹against evil˺. On that night every matter of wisdom is ordained
In this article, you’ll know the physical signs of laylatul qadr underpinned with evidence from the Quran and Sunna.
Here are Signs of laylatul qadr extracted from the Quran and sunna.
one of the signs of the night of laylatul qadr is to be lighter than the other nights with light fogs and that explains Allah’s saying about the dependence of angles and Japril, peace on him from the sky.
‘A’isha reported God’s messenger as saying, “Seek lailat al-qadr on an old number night among the last ten in Ramadan.”
Some people think it shall be on the odd nights like 21th, and 23rd but they forget it can be on the other days like 22th and 24 days. And we can conclude that from signs of laylatul qadr hadith
1.`Umar said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever among you is seeking Lailatul Qadr, let him seek it in the odd-numbered nights of the last ten days of Ramadan.`
2. Abu Bakra said he heard God’s messenger say, “Seek it (meaning lailat al-qadr), on the twenty-first, twenty-third, twenty-fifth, twenty-seventh, or the last night.”
So, from the second hadith, we can conclude that it can be the last night of Ramadan, so it can be on the 30th night. Who knows?
It’s better to pray to god and provide your prayer all night so Allah will reward you for your good deeds and pure intention.
According to a hadith of prophet Mohammed, describing the atmosphere of the weather on this night, he said is mild, not so hot nor so cold, and it’s shiny as there is a moon revealing its planets.
Also, from the signs of laylatul qadr, the sun will rise in the next days bright without rays
And Muslim scholars conclude that the sun will be so weak that you can look at it directly without harming your eyes- however, we don’t encourage you to do that anyway!.
Imam AL nawawi explained this phenomenon, saying Allah wanted the sun to rise in so particular way since the angles – with their descendance to the earth blocked the rays of the sun.
The five sign of Laylatul qadr is to feel calmness and tranquility in your heart and though it’s not a physical sign, many people can feel it. All the cosmos will be in peaceful harmony and your heart will be able to receive these vivid vibes of quietness and light-heartedness.
Allah described this night in Quran saying it’s peace until Fajar.
You’ll feel the peace of the night and the dogs stop barking. And the wind is calm this night.
In hadith, Muslim narrated the prophet said: one of the signs of laylatul qadr is the rise of a half-moon in the sky.
laylatul qadr has a great significance in Quran and it equals 1000 months. If you calculated how many days you might live on the earth, they won’t surpass half of this number. So, you should dedicate the ten days of Ramadan to prayer and being close to Allah.

Pray to God for everything you want. pray with all your fear of fire and all of your desire for paradise and feel peace in your heart, and get Allah’s satisfaction… There are many forms of Duas, However, the prophet Mohammed learnt us a favored dua to say all the 10 last days of Ramadan
Feeding someone or even a family during Ramadan has a great value in Islam, especially Ramadan and it enters happiness into the life of people you sustain. Look at your neighbors and if you know someone needy, provide him with food, it could be something big as a full meal or just three small dates or a drink of water!
Prophet Mohamed spoke about the virtue of Sadaqa in a hadith
Ask Allah for forgiveness for all of your sins, especially on the third part of the night.
and say Dua for Sayyidul Istighfar-
Prayer is one of the greatest connections between You and Allah, especially Qiamullail. It’s two rakaat and there is no limited number of prayers you can perform on this night. Prophet Mohammed was praying 11 rakaat , so he follows him, it’s better and for those who surpassed, there is no problem.
Itikaf means a period of isolation, usually in a masjid ( Mosques) and it aims to reconnect with god alone and derive the energy from him as the uttermost source of everything. In this period, the Muslims, pray, recite Quran, make dua to Allah and say azkar and do everything that makes them feel connected with Allah and stop thinking about worldly lusts/matters. Itikaf is a sunna of the prophet Mohammed and his companions followed him
No one knows when there is laylatul qadr except Allah who did that for wisdom and Muslims should treat all the ten-night of Ramadan as it’s a potential laylatul qadr.
