Oats With Dry Fruits And Nuts
Already we are in the last few days of Ramadan.And the ten days goes with the best prayers one can make expecting Lailathul Qadr.
A little about Lailathul Qadr-the Night of Power/Decree expected during the the last days mainly the odd nights is of great significance. The Holy Quran was sent down in this night. Angels descend in this night.There is a chapter in the Holy Quran mentioning about this.
“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 it is until the emergence of dawn.”(97:1-5)
