Signs of Shab Qadr

Signs of Shab Qadr


What are the signs of Shab Qadr and how can we know that we have gotten Shab Qadr?  There are Hadith about this to guide us.  Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has mentioned a detailed Hadith about this in his Tafseer Durre Manthur:


Translation: Imam Ahmed, Imam Ibn Jareer, Imam Muhammad bin Nasr, Imam Baihaqui, Imam Ibn Mardaway have narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Ubada bin Saamit (May Allah be well pleased with him) that he heard from the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) about Shab Qadr and the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  It is in the last 10 days of Ramadhan.  It is in the odd nights, either the 21st, the 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th or the last night of Ramadhan.  The person who in a state of faith (Iman), with the intention of reward stand up in prayer in this night, then all the past sins of that person are forgiven and it has the following signs:  (1)  That night is exceptionally bright.  (2)  It is very clear.  (3)  It is very calm.  (4)  It has a delicious silence.  (5)  It is neither too warm nor too cold.  It is as if this night the moon is spreading its light.  (6)  This night, no star wanes until the morning dawns.  (7)  It is also among its signs that the next morning the sun rises full, like the full moon.  (8)  Almighty Allah has forbidden for Satan to rise this day along with the sun.  (Durr Manthur, Surah Qadr-2)
