Month of Ramadan

Laylatul Qadr (Specific for 19, 21 Ramadan)

On 21st Ramadhan, AH 40, Imam Ali ibn Abi-Talib, Amir al-Mu'minin peace be upon him,departed from this life as a martyr.
The night of 19 Ramadhan 40 A.H. marked the beginning of one of the greatest losses to humanity. A man who had given everything to others, who had been oppressed but never thought of revenge, who forgave his enemies, who helped the weak and fathered the orphans was preparing to meet his Lord. .....When it was dawn, Imam Ali (AS) proceeded to the mosque slowly. ..Imam arrived at the Kufa mosque and prostrated himself before Almighty Allah (swt). At that time, ibne Muljim (May the curse of Allah befall him) dealt such a blow on his head, everything in this world became heartbroken except the face of Ali who cried out: “By the Lord of the Kabah, I have been successful!” .
