Shaikh Ubaid: Question and Answer on Signs Lailatul Qadr (Night of Decree)
Question: [Can you] Explain some of the signs of Lailatul Qadr [the night of Decree]?
Answer: The signs which indicate Lailatul Qadr which have been mentioned by the Prophet (SallAllaahu Alayhi wa Sallam), I can recall at this moment the following.
1. The first of them or number one is that Lailatul Qadr is a peaceful, tranquil quiet night. Within that night or the night of Lailatul Qadr you do not hear the barking of dogs, or the sound of the cockerel.
2. The second sign is that in Lailatul Qadr the people experience a pleasant breeze or a pleasant wind which they enjoy which they like.
3. Thirdly, in Lailatul Qadr there is rain. This is one of the signs of Lailatul Qadr that during the night of Lailatul Qadr the rain falls.
4. Fourthly, is that when the sun rises on the following morning the disc of the sun is seen without strong rays or is without any rays. The disc is a clear disc when it rises in the morning.
The shaikh said many of these signs the people notice them or they see them and if we notice these signs, then we should have glad tidings in the hope that we have coincided with Lailatul Qadr.
