Imam Khomeini highlighted spiritual merits of the night of glory

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic also used to advise devotees to spiritually prepare themselves to observe the night of power Laylatul Qadr which has great virtues.

According to the holy book of Quran, among the nights of Ramadan is one special night known as the Night of Power (Laylatul Qadr), which is better than a thousand months.   Good deeds, worships, and divine practices and performed on that single night are equal to those performed over a thousand months.

It is the Night of Power (Laylatul Qadr), when the Qur'an was revealed. Some commentators believe it was the night when the Qur'an was brought down from Heavenly abode), for Jibrael to reveal in parts to the Prophet.

 Others say it was the night when the Prophet received the entire Qur'an, but was asked to transmit it as and when the occasion demanded.

Laylatul Qadr is a celebration to commemorate the arrival of the final guidance for humans.

 It is a tribute to the commencement of the message revealed to mankind by their Creator, a message which shows them the way to achieve happiness in both the worlds.

Laylatul Qadr is celebrated as a bringer of light and guidance for mankind. 

Some Ahadith indicate that the fate of every believer for the coming year is decreed on this night. 

That is why the Du`as for this night ask for special favors in the decree for the year. Believers are encouraged to stay awake the entire night, and pray for blessings and forgiveness.

 It is the holiest night of the year, and it would be unwise to be heedless of the tremendous benefits of this night.

Imam Khomeini continued his special schedule before and after becoming the leader of the Islamic Revolution. 

Imam Khomeini, the world religious and spiritual leader used to recommend the devotees to pay special attention to self-purification and get rid of carnal desires during this blessed divine month. 

The world spiritual leader considered the holy month of Ramadan and Laylatul Qadr as the unique divine opportunity to accomplish self purification and proximity to God, the Almighty.

The founder of the Islamic Republic used to spend the hours of this month to worship and meditate and considered the prayer as a means of reaching to divine love.
