ICSC’s Laylat al-Qadr Commemoration

By: Shirin Nouh 
The Islamic Center of Southern California celebrated Laylat al-Qadr at the Wilshire Grand Hotel on Friday, August 26, 2011. Approximately 3,000 – 4,000 community members attended.  The hall was filled with excitement in anticipation of this important and blessed night.  Dr. Saleh Kholaki and Shaikh Asim Byuksoy led the Quranic recitation. Next, Dr. Maher raised the crowd’s spirituality to a higher level with his commentary, prayers, and lengthy dua. As the crowd dispersed around midnight, they felt joyful that they were able to observe and participate in this unique event. Some people headed home while other met at the Islamic Center to continue their worship throughout the night until Fajr prayer. May Allah accept our prayers and duas and grant us the reward of those having observed Laylat al-Qadr .
