Imam Khomeini Used to Stay Awake on Nights of Qadr

The great Imam used to stay awake during nights of Qadr to say prayers, recite supplications and recommended the youth to undertake serious efforts for purification of their hearts and souls during these sacred days and nights.

According to Imam, in this blessed month be careful to make use of the advantages of “Laillat ul-Qadr” (The Night of destiny). We all should be different in this month and be in search of taking advantage of the night of destiny. That night is the best night of all in which all the blessings in the world are being sent down.

The sacred night is also known as night of decree or majesty' and it commemorates the period when God the Almighty revealed the sacred scripture of holy Quran to honorable prophet of Islam.

God the merciful mentions virtues of this night and the Holy Scripture in some of the Quranic verses as following:

"In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious Most Merciful. Verily, We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr"

"And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)"

The sacred night is described in the Quran as, "better than a thousand months"

"Peace it is until the appearance of dawn."

Some of Imam Khomeini’s advises for the blessed month of Ramadan:  

The blessed month of Ramadan is a month for prayer.

The blessed month of Ramadan is a month of unity and gathering, it is a month of God.

In this honored month you people are invited to the reception of the Holy God, then you should prepare yourself for this very glorious month

In this very blessed month that all are invited to the reception of God if you did not get to know God or did not improve your understanding of Him, then you should know that you have not entered the party in its proper manner and have wasted the chance of being hosted by God.

Be attentive that you should be able to do according to the proper manners particular for this month. Of its spiritual manners be careful not to be satisfied just with prayer but try to pray in its deep and actual sense. When you call for God, try to do it in its true meaning in a fashion that your hearts feel the assurance deep inside.
