The Last Night
It is related by Abu Hurairah the Apostle of God said : "In the last night of Ramadhan the decision of forgiveness is taken for my followers". He was asked : "O Apostle of God ! Is it Shab-I-Qadr ?" "No", replied the Prophet, "It is not Shab-I-Qadr but when the workman completes his job, he is paid full wages."
Commentary: It shows that the last night of the month of Ramadhan, too, is a night of the special decision of forgiveness. But, in it, such a decision will be taken only for the bondsmen who make themselves deserving of it by fulfilling, to some extent, the practical obligations of Ramadhan.
