Celebrating on the twenty-seventh night of Ramadan

Q 2: What is the ruling on celebrating the twenty-seventh night of Ramadan in particular?


A: Celebrating the twenty-seventh night of Ramadan in particular is a Bid`ah. It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Anyone who introduces anything into this matter of ours (Islam) that is not part of it will have it rejected. (Related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim) (Part No. 3; Page No. 60) The manner legislated by Islam is to spend this night in `Ibadah (worship), give Sadaqah (voluntary charity) and the like, as done during the rest of the last ten nights of Ramadan.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
