Day 21 – Sunrise After Fajr – Searching for Confirmation of Laylatul Qadr – Looking at Sun & Sky

After Sunrise on the morning of the 21st Day of Ramadan 2023,

I went outside to look at Sun and Sky in search of conditions confirming last night was Laylatul Qadr.

Photograph, video clips, and audio recording of what I found.

Ibn Abbas reported:

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him,

said regarding the Night of Decree,

“It is a calm night,

neither hot nor cold,

and the sun rises upon its day red and faint.”

This audio recording began as a Video.

Like the Sky it was recording, file size of the HD Video was big.

Too big to upload properly.

I extracted the audio and that’s what you can listen to above.

Couple of screencaptures to accompany the audio…

I’m an official member of the Worldwide Moonsighting Committee, at, representing Canada.

If anyone else, because it’s not going to be me, puts in the effort to create an official “Laylatul Qadr Confirmation” Committee, you now have your first member.

After looking up at Sun and Sky early this 21st Morning of Ramadan 2023,

I still don’t know for sure if last night, the first of the five possibilities for Laylatul Qadr, was Laylatul Qadr.

I feel it was.

Conditions this morning still leave me guessing.

Four more chances to go…
