Nights of Power

For those Subud members who are observing Ramadan:

The last ten days:

This is a period of receiving the Lailatul Qodar (the Nights of Power), and this is sent by God on the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th and 29th nights of the fast. This Lailatul Qodar is not something that falls from above, but it forms a certain power which can change our state.
Most of the Subud members who fasted felt, after completing the fast, there were changes to their inner. Mostly, their spirit to worship God became stronger and also the intention of doing ‘prihatin’ became stronger.

TAK-BARAN: (30th day Ramadan):
The last day of fasting. Sundown marks the end of the month.
IDUL-FITRI: (The Night of Forgiveness):
At the end of Ramadan, we again take a full bath and put on new clothes, and then we should go to our family and our friends and ask forgiveness for whatever sins we have committed against them. This is a time of special celebration and thanks to Almighty God. Praise be to the One Almighty God. Amin!
